MIT rsearchers have created tiny solar cells that can repair themselves after damage from the sunlight they're designed to process.
MIT has developed an autonomous floating robot that it says can absorb as much as 20 times its own weight in oil.
A new type of virus-based battery is under development for the US army and could soon be woven into military uniforms.
Take this, iPhone! Researchers over at MIT are now able to use Android phones to generate calculations that previously required a massive supercomputer.
An MIT team has teamed up with engineers from the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory to build a new type of lunar explorer that hops along the surface.
US broadband speeds aren't nearly as bad as they're painted, says MIT, thanks to a series of mis-estimates by a Federal Communications Commission survey.
MIT scientists have developed fibers that can detect and produce sound, and say they could be used to produce clothes that act as microphones.
A new network design could increase internet speeds by 100 times, by removing the need to convert optical signals to electrical ones.
Stroking a white cat didn't seem to make Blofeld particularly affectionate in You Only Live Twice - but maybe he'd have been even nastier if he'd been holding a rock.

Russia and Italy have agreed to build a new fusion reactor outside Moscow that they hope could become the first to achieve ignition - the point where a fusion reaction becomes self-sustaining instead of requiring a constant input of energy.
MIT researchers have discovered that a wireless electricity delivery technique they invented three years ago works better when it's used to charge multiple devices at the same time.
Surround sound's just so old hat, says MIT, which has developed a system that does the same thing with images on ordinary handheld devices.
Scientists have discovered your moral compass - and it's just behind your right ear. MIT researchers have found they can successfully alter people's moral judgments by disrupting a specific brain region.
MIT and Korean researchers have developed a portable desalinator that could supply a small village using solar power.
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have successfully designed a computer chip comprising hundreds of tiny molecules.
