Chains of electrically activated particles could power microbots that swim through a person's bloodstream to fight disease.
Robots decide stuff all the time, scary as that sounds. But what happens inside their 'thought' process? A team from MIT asked the same question and created a way to visualize what a machine's decision process looks like.
New technology would allow rescue workers to deploy roaches as living microphones. Continue reading →
Researchers are making such leaps and bounds in the lab that what seemed futuristic just a moment ago is already ancient history.
