Human divers - and dolphins - could have a reprieve from searching out mines attached to ships' hulls, thanks to a new algorithm from MIT.
MIT engineers have developed a semi-autonomous vehicle safety system that takes over if the driver does something stupid.
MIT and NASA scientists believe they've found a planet, 1,500 light years away, that appears to be disintegrating from the heat of its parent star.
MIT's created a new type of glass that's glare-free, self-cleaning and anti-fogging - useful for everything from car windscreens and scuba goggles to cellphones and solar panels.
Tetris is one those classic games that has been around for a long time, yet continues to be more popular than ever.
MIT researchers have created a new type of nanoparticle that can synthesize proteins on demand, potentially creating cancer drugs right at the spot they're needed.
Giant towers, tall as football fields, have become a prerequisite to maximizing wind-turbine power production.
MIT researchers are working to develop a desktop technology allowing people to design, customize and print a specialized robot on demand.
MIT scientists have coded a series of algorithms that could ultimately facilitate the design of "smart sand" capable of assuming any shape.
MIT researchers are working on 3D solar towers that, they say, give a power output of up to 20 times that of fixed flat panels with the same base area.
While plenty of question marks still hang over the prospect of carbon capture and storage, MIT believes it's ruled out one: the US, it says, has enough capacity in its deep saline aquifers to store at least a century's fossil fuel emissions.
MIT researchers say they've developed a camera that can see round corners - useful for peeping toms and rescue workers.
An MIT researcher believes he's found a way to solve many of the problems that grounded Concorde, and make supersonic commercial flights a reality once more.
Reducing the speed of light using nanotech could lead to new ways to generate electricity, say MIT researchers.
Anyone who knew Miles C. Barr as a kid no doubt realized he'd go far one day.
Researchers at MIT say they have developed a new type of low-cost battery that could be the future of affordable energy storage systems.
Mysterious aurora-causing high-speed electrons detected by space probes have finally been explained, thanks to a massive computer simulation.
For ten years, it's been known that RNA interference could potentially kill cancer by shutting off malfunctioning genes - but there's been no efficient way to deliver the RNA.
Robots could soon be capable of real-time autonomous navigation by creating and continuously updating an internal three-dimensional map.
MIT's announced plans for a fully-online electronics course open to anyone in the world - and completely free.
