Seeing logic

It turns out that you can compute just by looking at something, as long as the something is a visual representation of a logic circuit. A novel method of computing takes advantage of human visual perception... [more]

Software sees structure

Software that analyzes data sets determines the most appropriate data structure to use. [more]

Programming biology

A programming language for simulating biology makes it easier for scientists to create computer models of protein molecules, whole organisms and everything in between. [more]

Tiny microscope goes with the flow

Position a series of microscopic pinholes over digital camera pixels and you have a microscope-on-a-biochip without the bulky lenses of traditional microscopes. [more]

Rubber biochips get sophisticated

Pretreat portions of the rubber sheets that will form the channels and containers of disposable biochips, and after the biochips are made you can put microscopic pores, patterns and electrodes on channel and container side walls. [more]

Cut nanotubes speed flexible circuits

Cut single layers of overlapping, randomly oriented carbon nanotubes into strips and you've got an inexpensive route to high-performance, flexible electronics. [more]

Protein ignorance

"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
