Media Tek is perhaps best known for its budget ARM processors (single and dual-core) that power a wide range of smartphones and tablets.
The widespread disappearance of stromatolites, the earliest visible manifestation of life on Earth, may have been driven by single-celled organisms called foraminifera.
The Aithon - which is targeted at motor and robotics applications - is powered by an STM32 Cortex M4 MCU and runs Chibios/RT, an open source RTOS (real time operating system).
Not so long ago we brought you word of the 3Doodler, a 3D printing pen that allows you to draw simple structures into thin-air.
Lawrence Livermore scientists have discovered and demonstrated a new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide while generating carbon-negative hydrogen and producing alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.
What may be the ultimate heat sink is only possible because of yet another astounding capability of graphene. The one-atom-thick form of carbon can act as a go-between that allows vertically aligned carbon nanotubes to grow on nearly anything.
There are those times when walking a long distance can be overrated. Public transportation options exist, and you can always take your personal vehicle, but what about if you want to try and get to your destination in a more unique way?
NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, Russian Federal Space Agency cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Luca Parmitano joined their Expedition 36 crewmates when the hatches between their Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft and the International Space Station opened at 12:14 a.m. EDT Wednesday.
Computer simulations of galaxies growing over billions of years have revealed a likely scenario for how they feed: a cosmic version of swirly straws.
Pearltrees can best be described as a visual and collaborative library that allows users to easily curate and keep track of their favorite subjects.
NASA and a Texas company are exploring the possibility of using a "3D printer" on deep space missions in a way where the "D" would stand for dining.
With 400 ppm of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it might be that we have crossed the carbon Rubicon.
A robot in Cornell's Personal Robotics Lab has learned to foresee human action in order to step in and offer a helping hand, or more precisely, roll in and offer a helping claw.
The Wandboard can best be described as a small dev board equipped with a speedy Freescale i.MX6 ARM Cortex-A9 processor.
Gigabyte’s BRIX uber-mini PC may measure just 4.5″ x 4.2″ x 1.2″ - yet it is more than capable of handling an Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor.
On May 31, 2013, asteroid 1998 QE2 will sail serenely past Earth, getting no closer than about 3.6 million miles (5.8 million kilometers), or about 15 times the distance between Earth and the moon.
So the long-awaited Raspberry Pi camera finally became available to the DIY community earlier this month.
Studying complex systems like ecosystems can get messy, especially when trying to predict how they interact with other big unknowns like climate change.
The Nissan e-NV200 is a pure-electric version of the gas-powered NV200 microvan. The automaker has just announced it will start field tests of its e-van this month in Saitama City (Saitama Prefecture) in Japan.
The prospects for high-altitude wind technology are looking a little more buoyant with the revelation that Makani Power has been acquired by Google[x], the semi-secret Google lab that’s dabbled in wacky stuff like driverless cars and wired eyeglasses.
