Eventually we may have highly capable robots in our homes, helping with chores and other tasks as we ask them, but before this can happen, they must be able to recognize the objects being used. To that end many objection recognition algorithms have been developed and work is ongoing to make ever better ones. Now researchers at MIT have combined ...

Pictures and Performance Numbers for R9 Nano Appear

In the quickly approaching month of August, AMD will be launching the R9 Nano, which is rumored to have a full Fiji XT core, like the R9 Fury X GPU, but in a far smaller, 15 cm long package. To achieve this and keep within its 175 W TDP, it will almost certainly feature lower clock speeds, so the question on many people's minds is just how well ...

Wirelessly charging our devices has been a dream for many for a long time, and now we are starting to see it, but it still needs some work. For the technology to become more practical, its efficiency must be increased, and one means to achieve that is to add intermediate materials between the transmitter and receiver. Metamaterials are one conte...

Since its discovery, quantum mechanics has been a realm largely separate from the classical world we live in. This makes it challenging to study some quantum phenomena, which require ultra-low temperature, just above absolute zero. One example of this is Bose-Einstein condensates, but researchers at Polytechnique Montréal and Imperial College Lo...

For many systems, friction is an enemy as it takes away energy that could otherwise be used, or wears down components. Ways to reduce and remove friction are naturally very important then, with the ultimate goal being superlubricity. When superlubricity is achieved, friction seems to vanish, and now researchers at Argonne National Laboratory hav...

The future of electronics will likely be thin, but not in the sense that it will fit better in your pocket. Instead there is a push to use two-dimensional crystals for building devices, instead of the current 3D crystals used. Now researchers at ORNL have devised a novel way to form arrays of arbitrary patterns within a 2D semiconductor crystal....
