A stretchy synthetic skin is embedded with sensors to replicate a skin-like sense of touch for prosthetics.
Researchers at Penn State University explore the insides of our cells with nano-sized, rocket-shaped metal projectiles powered by sound.
In the future, your heart could be repaired with gold nanowire cell patches.
Researchers say their experimental arrays sense pressure in the same range as the human fingertip, which could result in better bots and prosthetics.
In 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore foresaw an inexorable rise in chip power that eventually delivered the computer to your pocket. While long in the tooth, Moore's prediction still has plenty of life in it. Here's why.
Battery life on smartphones is generally terrible, and everyone knows it. Here's why, and who is trying to fix it.
UC Berkeley engineers have developed a low-power e-skin of touch-sensitive nanowire mesh that may help robots manipulate fragile objects.
Researchers hope to soon be able to test our breath for a wide range of "biomarkers" -- molecules that could indicate the presence of a particular disease.
To make super cheap solar cells, MIT researchers look to commandeer the process of photosynthesis in plants.
A team of researchers has shown that it is possible to fabricate low-resistivity nanowires at the smallest scales imaginable by stringing together individual atoms in silicon.
