  • Researchers develop battery that could run for more than a decade

    According to researchers from Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences/SEAS, it is now possible to make flow batteries more practical. It is worth noting that flow batteries can store energy in liquid-filled tanks, but the only problem that was being experienced previously was that after a few charge-discharge cycles the batteries […]

  • Wireless Brain Interface Can Make the Paralyzed Walk Again

    After successful results on monkeys, scientists claim paralyzed people can also walk again with their recently developed wireless brain implant. Scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) believe that one day it will be possible to see paralyzed people walking again. The claim is derived from results of a research conducted collectively by the […]

  • US Air Force now equipped with DARPA’s Space Surveillance Telescope

    DARPA’s Space Surveillance Telescope will help to track any objects or asteroids reaching close to the Earth. Pentagon’s DARPA (The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has handed over its Space Surveillance Telescope to the United States’ Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) in New Mexico. The AFSPC received ownership and operation rights for the Space Surveillance Telescope […]

  • Artificial Intelligence can Decode and Unblur Pixelated Images

    Almost every one of us has heard about Artificial Intelligence (AI), but relatively few people have a really good idea of what it can really do — This report talks about AI unblurring pixelated Images.

  • Human Cells’ DNA can Store Complex Data- MIT Bio-Engineers

    ShortRead: Researchers have developed a new method to record ‘analog memories’ in human cells, allowing them to retrieve information of past events, such as inflammation, via DNA sequencing. Scientists have managed to record histories in the DNA of human cells, allowing them to recall past “memories.” The advancement could prove vital for researchers studying how […]

  • Robot Runs Away from Lab; Blocks Traffic in Russia

    A humanoid-looking robot in Russia fled after figuring out that the engineers forgot to shut the gates! Last year a technician at the Germany-based Volkswagen production plant was killed by a robot, of course, a human error was involved in that accident by what happened in Russia is not only funny but also shocking. There are many conspiracies about robots taking […]
