What were you thinking -- the computer knows

A brain scan that can read people's thoughts is a step closer to reality with a computer model that predicts neural activity patterns for thousands of words. [more]

Monkey cyborg

People have been able to control cursors on computer screens and monkeys have been able to control robotic arms using thought via signals picked up through electrodes implanted in the part of the brain that controls movement. [more]

Toys make teamed robots

Turning a pack of autonomous robots into a movable sensor network is tricky enough, but doing it in the harsh arctic environment and doing it affordably is a formidable challenge. [more]

Light-inspired biochip

A type of biochip steers, bends and focuses streams of cells and microscopic beads, making it possible to mix and sort cells and bead-borne biological molecules on chip. [more]

Artificial cells get chatty

Artificial cells that communicate chemically with bacteria open a new route to delivering drugs to diseased cells or antibiotics to harmful bacteria. [more]

Self-assembled artificial virus

An artificial virus "infects" diseased cells with drugs or therapeutic genetic material. [more]

Nanotech surge

"Physics is to the rest of science what machine tools are to engineering. A corollary is that science places power in our hands which can be used for good or ill. Technology has been abused in this way throughout the ages from gunpowder to atomic bombs."
- John Pendry, Imperial College London
