We’ve Been Had: Science Proves Tripods Make Camera Shake Worse

Either the Japanese government has something against tripod manufacturers or the photography industry has been pulling the wool over our eyes for a century.

Cloaking Technology Sunders Tsunamis

We haven’t covered much cloaking technology and that’s a shame because it’s starting to come into its own. Stefan Enoch at the Fresnel Institute in Marseille, France says that established cloaking principles, such as steering microwave light around an object, could be applied to ocean waves. Because cloaking technology is still in its infancy, scientists are still working on tackling ...

Bacteria Producing Plastic Sans Pollution

Everyday scientists are creating new ways to develop the things we take for granted. Eliminating the problematic ways of creating plastic with oil or gas, scientists of Genomatica Inc. have formed strains of bacteria which produce plastic. This is great news as this bacteria requires little more than sugar and water to produce butanediol, the compound used to manufacture many ...

Recreating The Earth’s Magnetic Field – On Earth

Scientists are always trying to replicate phenomenons here on earth. With the Large Hadron Collider attempting to test various theories and even replicate the big bang, you’d think scientists all over the world have their hands full. On the contrary, scientists at the University of Maryland have their own little maniacal tests to conduct. They’ve built a ten foot high, ...

We’re Still Alive, Large Hadron Collider Works!

It’s probably not in the best interest of mankind to try and recreate a big bang right here on our planet, but scientists just can’t get enough of attempting to destroy existence as we know it. For those not familiar with the Large Hadron Collider, it’s the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator complex that stretches a whopping 17 miles. ...

Robot arm controled by monkey…Monkey promptly announces presidential run

[ev type=”youtube” data=”TK1WBA9Xl3c”][/ev] This video is pretty incredible. These scientist have trained monkeys to control a robotic arm using only their brain, with the help of an implanted brain chip. The video discusses the relationship between monkey experimentation and the thought of one day using similar chips on paralyzed humans. Look at that poor monkey shoved into that plastic box ...
