Using technology called carbon nanotubes, Big Blue takes a significant step on a years-long path to secure the computing industry's future as today's chipmaking technologies run out of steam.
Using an exotic form of carbon called graphene, researchers print antennas on paper and other materials with a process that could bring network links to many cheap devices.
New material could help robots switch between hard and soft states to squeeze through small spaces -- much like an octopus.
Big Blue sets a five-year plan to figure out the manufacturing technology for the great-grandchild of today's chip tech -- and the even more different generations beyond that.
Empire Cycles in the UK has partnered with additive manufacturer Renishaw to create the world's first fully 3D-printed titanium bicycle frame.
Researchers at Big Blue improved graphene-based radio receiver performance by attaching the fragile form of carbon material at the end of the chipmaking process.
An experimental clock has set the records for both accuracy and stability, being able to keep time for longer than the Earth has been in existence.
Some say the odds are good that we're living in a computer simulation, and a few researchers think they might know how to find out the truth.
In March, the University of Illinois' National Center for Supercomputing Applications unveiled Blue Waters. CNET Road Trip 2013 checked out our new national supercomputer.
On Road Trip 2013, CNET's Daniel Terdiman traveled to the Argonne National Lab to find out the history of the world's first nuclear reaction, Chicago Pile-1.
