Scientists at MIT have successfully created a fleet of autonomous 'roboats' capable of changing shape to form a variety of useful structures.
Scientists from MIT and China have found a new way to boost the energy capabilities of lithium batteries.
MIT scientists have developed smart power outlets.
MIT has topped the charts again, coming in as one of the best colleges in the nation.
Although today’s 3D printers are capable of some amazing things, researchers in MIT’s Media Lab are rethinking the technology and expanding its capabilities. They have found a way to bypass a time-intestive step in 3D printing so that hair-like structures can be printed. They have used their new technique to print “hairs” that can perform sensing, adhesion, and actuation.
Terahertz lasers could potentially be used in security and medical diagnostics because of their ability to detect chemicals and evaluate materials. However, the technology will need to be improved before it is widely adopted.
Researchers led by MIT postdoc Cui-Zu Chang has achieved the first zero-resistance edge state in a circuit. The circuit exhibits the quantum anomalous Hall effect, a property that allows it to transfer information. Superconductors have also achieved zero resistance, but they can only transfer electrical information.
MIT researchers have demonstrated the thinnest, lightest solar cells that have ever been produced. The solar cells are so thin that 50 of them would fit inside the width of a human hair. To show off their inven... Read More...
