Can the humble ladybird really cast light on the arena of graphene-on-silicon platforms? The latest development in this area is fascinating.
Bizarrely, it’s alleged that Google’s next planned staff perk is extending healthcare into the "afterlife." What does that really mean?
Could you break the law with mere maths? It sounds silly, but defining the legality of numbers and data is important for the future.
Neurogrid is an exciting development which could bring neuromorphic computing out of the lab and into the real world.
Can we build a computer that can compute everything a brain can? A computer that can compute consciousness, or the ability to feel?
We look at the issues involved with making a see-through phone, along with some thoughts on the applications of such a device.
European researchers have managed to grow defect-free graphene – and its potential as a commercial material is coming into full focus.
The strategies employed in evolution offer some insights into how we might build the ultimate processor of the future…
The button battery has become a limiting factor in the design of small electronics – but all that could be about to change.
If research groups can get neuristor efficiency down to the level that neurons routinely operate, things may start to get exciting.
We explore some of the ideas raised by Ray Kurzweil’s freshly released book, and his cautionary optimism regarding the future.
A group at a Swedish university is working to elevate the synthesis of semiconductor structures off the chip and into the air.
A group at the University of Warwick has developed carbomorph, the ability to print capacitive sensors, and “smart” cups.
The eyes have it, apparently. Have what, you ask? Control over Fruit Ninja, and a lot more besides in the future, quite possibly…
