Tree-on-a-chip mimics passive pumping mechanism found in plants and trees

MIT found an elegant solution to a complex problem.

By 2040 our computers will use more power than we can produce

I didn’t know they could do that.

This is the world’s first 1,000-processor chip

It works 100 times more efficiently than your laptop.

New silicon chip technology amplifies light using sound waves

A whole new world of signal processing may be just around the corner.

Breakthrough in computing: brain-like chip features 4096 cores, 1 million neurons, 5.4 billion transistors

The brain of complex organisms, such as humans but just as well other primates or even mice, is very difficult to emulate with today’s technology. IBM is moving things further in this direction after it announced the whooping features of its new brain-like chip: one million programmable neurons and 256 million programmable synapses across 4096 individual neurosynaptic cores, all made possible

Bone marrow-on-a-chip could remove bone marrow animal testing

A new “organ on a chip” has been developed by Harvard researchers, reproducing the structure, functions, and cellular make-up of bone marrow, a complex tissue that until now, could only be studied on living animals. Bone marrow is one of the more complex and fragile parts of the human body – many drugs and toxic elements affect the bone marrow in

Creating virtually indestructible, self healing circuits

Imagine if the chip in your phone of laptop could not only defend, but also repair itself on the fly, recovering from simple scratches or battery issues to total transistor failure. It may sound like science fiction, but it is exactly what a team from CalTech has done. The team working at the High-Speed Integrated Circuits laboratory in Caltech’s Division

Picture perfect: quick, efficient chip eliminates common flaws in amateur photographs

Your smartphone amateur photos could be instantly converted into professional-looking pictures at the touch of a button, thanks to a chip developed by MIT researchers. The chip, built by a team at MIT’s Microsystems Technology Laboratory can perform a number of tasks, including creating a more realistic environment or enhanced lighting in a shot without destroying the scene ambience; the

Physicists create previously thought impossible super photons

A team of physicists from the University of Bonn developed a totally new type of source of light, the so called Bose-Einstein condensate; the results will be published in the upcoming edition of Nature. They managed to achieve this astonishing feat by greatly cooling Rubidium atoms and stashing them into each other, up until the point they become indistinguishable and
