Look at these black and yellow bars and tell me what you see. Not much, right? Ask state-of-the-art artificial intelligence the same question, however, and it will tell you they're a school bus. It will be over 99 percent certain of this assessment.
A team of researchers has successfully achieved brain-to-brain human communication using non-invasive technologies across a distance of 5,000 miles. Humans just got a step closer to being able to think a message into someone else's brain on the other side of the world: in a first-of-its-kind study, an international team of researchers has successfully achieved brain-to-brain transmission of information between humans.
When I suffered my third consecutive miscarriage this past May, my mom said she wanted to help me out however she could, even if it meant being my surrogate. I laughed it off-a 60-year-old surrogate?-but it turned out that, as always, Mom had been on to something.
Every year, the Consumer Electronics Expo names one product the Best in Show. It's the one piece of kit which is supposed to sum up the show, and be the highest quality release of the upcoming year. The winners are chosen by the "official media partner" of CES.
And you can't plug it in Taiwanese startup Gogoro is making news today after four years operating in stealth, revealing an electric scooter designed for commuters along with a ridiculously ambitious plan to power it.
Today, people use devices to monitor their behaviors. If we can do it, we can track it-steps taken, food eaten, calories burned. But measurements are only part of it. For this data to mean anything, we have to change our behavior. We have to move beyond the idea of quantified self to an Understood Self.
I was thinking of learning Spanish for my profession. It occurred to me that even if I really dedicate myself, it'll probably take me a good two...
In the late 1700s, machinists started making music boxes: intricate little mechanisms that could play harmonies and melodies by themselves. Some incorporated bells, drums, organs, even violins, all coordinated by a rotating cylinder. The more ambitious examples were Lilliputian orchestras, such as the Panharmonicon, invented in Vienna in 1805, or the mass-produced Orchestrion that came along in Dresden in 1851.
I subbed about a year ago. Back then I was an overweight, depressed, balding 30 something. After a year reading articles in this sub, especially...
I consider myself a perfectionist-a characteristic I find often tiresome, but invaluable as a designer. Great designers are never satisfied, because in the design world, there is never one solution to a problem. Fortunately, deadlines prevent us from redesigning and tweaking ourselves to death.

New research shows that oceans on super-Earths, once established, can last for billions of years. Credit: David A. Aguilar (CfA)For life as we know it to develop on other planets, those planets would need liquid water, or oceans.
Elon Musk's Hyperloop Will Revolutionize Transportation, But That's Only The Beginning Of The Change It'll Bring 30387 7 San Francisco to Los Angeles in 35 minutes flat-that was the dream of the Hyperloop. Back in 2013, Elon Musk introduced the world to this dream a 60 page white paper.
The first prosthetic skin to simulate the sense of touch is being developed by researchers at Seoul National University. The smart artificial skin can even tell if a baby's diaper is wet. Amy Pollock reports.
