MIT is developing the super battery of your dreams

MIT is developing the super battery of your dreams Now, MIT researchers believe they have taken the first steps forward in the development of all-solid-state lithium-ion batteries, according to new research published in Advanced Energy Materials.In non-nerd speak, that basically means batteries that could store more energy—meaning less trips to a power outlet.

These scientists are proving Einstein wrong

These scientists are proving Einstein wrong Albert Einstein’s theories have been influencing physics for over 100 years.Until recently we haven’t had the technology to test these theories.

Nearly invisible gel-like robots move fast enough to catch fish underwater

Nearly invisible gel-like robots move fast enough to catch fish underwater MIT scientists have developed mostly transparent soft robots that are made of 90 percent water.The robots are so fast that they can catch and release fish underwater.

Discover a Planet From the Comfort of your Home

Discover a Planet From the Comfort of your Home MIT and the Carnegie Institution for Science this week released a huge dataset of nearby stars, in hopes of recruiting “fresh eyes” to help hunt exoplanets.Keck Observatory in Hawaii, is now available to the public—along with an open-source software package and online tutorial.

New low-power chips could put voice control everywhere

New low-power chips could put voice control everywhere But this is just the start for smart devices — and a new breakthrough from MIT researchers could make it even easier to include voice command systems in everyday electronics.The MIT chip requires between 0.

Scientists observe first planet-induced stellar pulsations

Scientists observe first planet-induced stellar pulsations But researchers now claim to have found the first example of stellar pulsations caused by an exoplanet.The star HAT-P-2 is emitting visible pulses that seem to be a result of a particularly large exoplanet in a highly eccentric orbit.

Ivy League astronomers take exoplanet hunting open-source

Ivy League astronomers take exoplanet hunting open-source To demonstrate the utility of the data set, they used it to find more than 100 exoplanets, all within 100 parsecs of us.There’s even one orbiting a near neighboring star to our own Solar System, GJ 411, which lies about 8.

This robot knows what you're thinking

This robot knows what you're thinking We want the human to do what’s natural and teach [the] robot to interpret that as input signal,” said Gil.Otherwise, they won’t notice any errors made by the robot, meaning that the researchers won't be able to signal that the robot is wrong.

Scientists develop a robot capable of listening when told it's wrong, in real time

Scientists develop a robot capable of listening when told it's wrong, in real time Now a research team from Boston University and MIT’s CSAIL have successfully enabled Baxter to interpret and obey brain waves in real time.” Their setup gave Baxter a simple sorting task and a human judge wearing an EEG cap.
