Picture the Olympic Games — except instead of human athletes, the competitors are all insect-sized robots. That’s the scenario proposed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), representatives said in a statement. The group is seeking innovative designs for robots that measure just a fraction of an inch, and the tiny bots will compete against […]

Researchers have designed, built and programmed a chemical-handling robot that can screen and predict chemical reactivity using machine learning. Based on the autonomous system’s predictions, the team found four novel reactions, demonstrating its potential to discover reactions quickly. Countless chemical reactions are known and many different pathways can lead to a desired molecule. To find […]

Ultrasound waves applied to the whole brain improve cognitive dysfunction in mice with conditions simulating vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The research, conducted by scientists at Tohoku University in Japan, suggests that this type of therapy may also benefit humans. The team, led by cardiologist Hiroaki Shimokawa, found that applying low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) to […]

UAE-based Yahsat Space Lab has completed the assembly, integration and verification (AIV) of the engineering model of the MYSAT-1 satellite. The engineering model is an exact replica of MYSAT-1’s flight satellite model and has been built and tested in real-time space and launch environments. Results from the tests were presented to stakeholders at the Yahsat […]

MIT researchers have developed the first molecular clock on a chip, which uses the constant, measurable rotation of molecules — when exposed to a certain frequency of electromagnetic radiation — to keep time. The chip could one day significantly improve the accuracy and performance of navigation on smartphones and other consumer devices. Today’s most accurate […]
