Research Identifies New Frontiers for Cerebral Palsy Treatment

New research from the Motion and Sports Lab at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas may give children with cerebral palsy better treatment options in the future - and it all starts with looking at how cerebral palsy patients move compared to their peers.

The Prettiest Science Experiments Of The Year According To Princeton

Princeton University is celebrating the beauty of science, a selection of of experiments and research papers that result in amazing displays of colour and motion that can be classified as contemporary art. Here are the prettiest ones. More »      

Breakthrough laser experiment reveals liquid-like motion of atoms in an ultra-cold cluster

A new study by researchers from the University of Leicester has furthered our understanding of how tiny nanosystems function, unlocking the potential to create new materials using nanosized 'building blocks'. The study, which has been...Show More Summary

A Dome Packed With 480 Cameras Captures Detailed 3D Images In Motion

If you’ve ever watched behind-the-scenes footage of a film with extensive visual effects, you’ve probably seen actors wearing ping-pong ball covered motion capture suits bringing digital characters to life. But researchers at Carnegie...Show More Summary

Watch a dome full of cameras capture 3D motion in extreme detail

Conventional 3D motion capture is awkward; even if you don't mind people covered with dots or ping pong balls, you often get just a handful of data points that miss out on subtle movements. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University might just have a...

Ultrafast X-ray laser sheds new light on fundamental ultrafast dynamics

MANHATTAN, Kansas — Ultrafast X-ray laser research led by Kansas State University has provided scientists with a snapshot of a fundamental molecular phenomenon. The finding sheds new light on microscopic electron motion in molecules. read more

Carnegie Mellon combines hundreds of videos to reconstruct 3D motion without markers

PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University researchers have developed techniques for combining the views of 480 video cameras mounted in a two-story geodesic dome to perform large-scale 3D motion reconstruction, including volleyball games, the swirl of air currents and even a cascade of confetti. read more

No, The Phablet Will Not Save BlackBerry.

By Kofi Bofah: On June 23, 2008, the then Research in Motion stock established an all-time high, at $147.50 per share. The $147.50 share price also calculated out to an $82.6 billion market capitalization price tag for the Research in Motion business model. Show More Summary

New advance allows gels to wiggle through water

Using a worm's contracting and expanding motion, researchers have designed a way for gels to swim in water. The advance, which is described in a Journal of Applied Polymer Science paper, involves the use of a hand-held laser to shrink and swell polymer gels comprised mostly of water. read more

Experiments in Second Life Reveal Alternative Laws of Physics

The ability to modify the laws of physics in the virtual world of Second Life is allowing researchers to experiment with entirely different laws of motion.

New method of wormlike motion lets gels wiggle through water

A special hydrogel substance has been developed that can be equipped to detect bacteria, carry cargo and deliver medicine. A researcher used a worm's contracting and expanding motion to provide a way for gels to swim in water. He explains,...Show More Summary

Drone equipped with Google's 3D-sensing phone won't be deterred

2 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Engadget

Google wants to put its Project Tango handsets in orbit, but researchers from the GRASP Lab at UPenn are keeping things on the down-low with one of their already-clever quadrotors. If you'll recall, Tango has a depth sensor, motion tracking camera...

New method for propulsion in fluids

CAMBRIDGE, Mass-- Researchers at MIT have discovered a new way of harnessing temperature gradients in fluids to propel objects. In the natural world, the mechanism may influence the motion of icebergs floating on the sea and rocks moving through subterranean magma chambers. read more

MRC Files Unique Challenge to ObamaCare Mandate

RESTON, VA – Today the Media Research Center (MRC) announced that it has filed a motion in US District Court for a preliminary injunction seeking to block enforcement of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Health and Human Services (HHS)...Show More Summary

This 3D Motion Simulator Is Powered By People

3 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Haptic Turk is a prototype game that uses your friends as virtual robots to do immersive motion simulation at home. The research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute in Germany demoed a flight simulator variant at CHI2014 last week: the player wears 3D goggles and lies in two slings held by four friends—the "human actuators" or turkers.

Smartphone makers were still reeling from the arrival of Apple's touchscreen-only iPhone when 2008 rolled around. Research in Motion (RIM), a mobile manufacturer best known for its BlackBerry line and QWERTY keyboard prowess, was at the top of its...

Microsoft Should Break $100 Billion In Revenues In 2015

ByMichael Blair: Smartphones have made and lost people fortunes since they were invented only a decade ago. The first real money was made by BlackBerry (BBRY) then known as Research in Motion, whose stock rose a staggering 27,902% between the fall of 1999 and mid-2008. Show More Summary

The Guardian tries to claim global warming sank the Titanic – research says the exact opposite

Kate Ravilious makes this nutty claim at The Guardian: But in fact the catastrophe may have been set in motion by a warm, wet year over Greenland in 1908, resulting in greater snow accumulation. Writing in the journal Weather, Grant … Continue reading ?
