Contact Lenses With Circuits, Lights A Possible Platform For Superhuman Vision
Posted on January 17, 2008 at 10:32:17 pm
Engineers have for the first time used manufacturing techniques at microscopic scales to combine a flexible, biologically safe contact lens with an imprinted electronic circuit and lights.

Computer Learns Dogspeak
Posted on January 20, 2008 at 10:35:17 am
Research shows that a new piece of software is able to classify dog barks according to different situations and even identify barks from individual dogs, a task humans find challenging.

Turning Algae Into Fuel
Posted on January 20, 2008 at 10:43:48 am
The same brown algae that cover rocks and cause anglers to slip while fly fishing contain oil that can be turned into diesel fuel, says a Montana State University microbiologist.

Extinct Marsupial Lion Tops African Lion In Fight To Death
Posted on January 20, 2008 at 10:50:23 am
Pound for pound, Australia's extinct marsupial lion (Thylacoleo carnifex) would have made mince meat of today's African lion (Panthera leo) had the two big hyper-carnivores ever squared off in a fight to the death.

Researchers Put The Bite On Mosquitoes
Posted on January 20, 2008 at 10:54:29 am
If researchers from The University of Arizona in Tucson have their way, one day mosquito bites may prove deadly to the mosquitoes as well.

Could The Universe Be Tied Up With Cosmic String?
Posted on January 21, 2008 at 09:23:08 pm
A team of physicists and astronomers from the University of Sussex and Imperial College London have uncovered hints that there may be cosmic strings - lines of pure mass-energy - stretching across the entire Universe.

Recovering From A Mass Extinction
Posted on January 21, 2008 at 09:57:47 pm
The full recovery of ecological systems, following the most devastating extinction event of all time, took at least 30 million years, according to new research from the University of Bristol.

Pigmentation In Some Butterfly Wings Created By Nanostructures
Posted on January 23, 2008 at 12:39:17 pm
Nowhere in nature is there so much beautiful colour as on the wings of butterflies. Scientists, however, are still baffled about exactly how these colours are created.

Tiny Phytoplankton Could Be Harboring the Next Big breakthrough In Computer Chips.
Posted on January 24, 2008 at 01:25:26 am
Denizens of oceans, lakes and even wet soil, diatoms are unicellular algae that encase themselves in intricately patterned, glass-like shells. Curiously, these tiny phytoplankton could be harboring the next big breakthrough in computer chips.

Cell Phones to Detect and Track Radiation
Posted on January 24, 2008 at 09:14:34 pm
Researchers at Purdue University are working with the state of Indiana to develop a system that would use a network of cell phones to detect and track radiation to help prevent terrorist attacks with radiological "dirty bombs" and nuclear weapons.
