Thanks to magnetic resonance imaging at 100 frames per second, researchers can watch the muscles involved in singing in action.
Decades of progress creating conventional computer chips will stall in the coming years, forcing some far-out ideas on semiconductor makers. Carbon nanotubes or quantum computing, anyone?
Researchers at Ohio State University believe they have the cure for the common "dreadmill." It's a treadmill that uses sonar to make running feel more natural.
