Elizabeth Nguyen has felt the physical and emotional impacts of acne since she was a teenager, but after prescribed medication only provided a short-term solution she chose a holistic approach to treat her skin.
The Las Vegas Convention Center is undergoing a major overhaul, and one of the most innovative features of the new-look facility will be the high-speed transport system that will circle beneath the surface. The Boring Company has now completed the ex
In 2007, Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone and described how it was three breakthrough products in one. It was widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary phone and full featured internet communication device.
The weird world of quantum physics is being harnessed for some fascinating use cases. In the latest example, physicists have developed and demonstrated a "quantum radar" prototype that uses the quantum entanglement phenomenon to detect objects, a
Air mobility company EHang has joined forces with tourism company LN Holdings to bring air tourism to the latter's hotels. One of the first projects to emerge from the new collaboration will make the LN Garden Hotel in Nansha the first hotel to offer
Now, the company has launched an incredible-looking tourist sub that can take 24 passengers, a pilot and a co-pilot down to 100-meter (328-ft) depths in air-conditioned comfort, providing panoramic views of the aquatic world through colossal 5.5-inch
"With a clever system design, you can potentially make a self-sustaining loop," says Jun Lou, lead author of the study. "Even when there's no sunlight, you can use stored energy in the form of chemical fuel. You can put the hydrogen and oxyge
Developed at Caltech, the technology is called compressed ultrafast spectral photography (CUSP). As you might expect from the incredible frame rate, it doesn't function like any ordinary camera. It uses extremely short pulses of laser light, each o
Although we have seen "morphing" structural materials before, they typically incorporate solenoids, pumps or motors that add weight and complexity. Now, however, scientists have developed a carbon fiber composite that shifts shape with a simple shot
Researchers from Rice University have built a simple new solar-powered device that can create hydrogen for fuel by splitting water. The system is very similar to other "artificial leaf" designs, but the team says it's self-sufficient and relati
A Chinese team has demonstrated a prototype of a microwave plasma thruster capable of working in the Earth's atmosphere and producing thrust with an efficiency comparable to the jet engines you'd find on modern airliners – under laboratory conditio
Triton submarines is the biggest name in deep-sea exploration submersibles, having built the extraordinary DSV Limiting Factor, a "deep-sea elevator" capable of popping down to the bottom of the Mariana Trench several times a week for extended visits
For example, a deficiency in selenium can lead to decreased T-cell and neutrophil function, two types of white blood cells needed for immunity against viruses, says a 2004 report in Trends in Microbiology.
The results of a first human trial testing a gene therapy for complete color blindness have been published in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology. The research suggests the experimental gene therapy is safe, and potentially efficacious, opening the door t
Being able to eat whatever we want and still stay slim is many people's dream come true. And while it still remains firmly in fantasy territory for now, new research may have brought it a step closer to reality. By blocking a gene in certain immune
A Florida team working with the US Air Force claims that it's built and tested an experimental model of a rotating detonation rocket engine, which uses spinning explosions inside a ring channel to create super-efficient thrust.
If you want your mind read, there are two options. You can visit a psychic or head to a lab and get strapped into a room-size, expensive machine that'll examine the electrical impulses and blood moving through the brain.
About a year ago, we got a firsthand look at Unitree's Laikago quadruped robot. And while it was impressive, it also packed a US$45,000 price tag. Now, though, the Chinese company has announced a new model that costs less than 10,000 bucks.
America's meat processing crisis, mainly triggered by labor shortages and plant closings due to coronavirus spread, is set to unleash a new wave of automation across plants to ease labor and health woes.
The best and simplest cure for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) might just be going outside, as natural sunlight contains ultraviolet (UV) rays that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) science and technology advisor William Bryan says easily destro
If there are two forms of transportation that millionaires like, those would be Learjets and limos – the one-off "Learmousine" is a mix of both. Should your pockets be as deep as it is long, the bizarre vehicle could soon be yours.
Just last month, China's air mobility company EHang announced plans to fly into Europe and set up shop in Seville, Spain. Now the firm has partnered with the City of Hezhou in Guangxi Province, China, to build a tourism-focused terminal for its air t
The Swarm-Probe Enabling ATEG Reactor, or SPEAR, is a nuclear electric propulsion spacecraft that uses a new, lightweight reactor moderator and advanced thermoelectric generators (ATEGs) to greatly reduce overall core mass.
Solar cells are constantly improving on the road to maximum efficiency. Now, three records have been broken by two different devices, including one that pushes the highest overall solar conversion efficiency towards the 50-percent mark.
The human toll of COVID-19 is unlikely to approach even a mean fraction of the pain visited on humanity in the first quarter of the 20th century. But what about the stories we tell about our global institutions, our shared values, and our own orthodo
Virgin Orbit continues to edge closer to its objective of firing satellites into space form an airborne 747, this time completing an end-to-end launch rehearsal designed to put all of its systems through their paces.
Back in early 2018, Samuel Mello Medeiros launched a project on Kickstarter aimed at giving old film cameras some modern relevance. The I'm Back attachment added a digital image sensor and touchscreen display to 35-mm film cameras of old, and now the
NASA is exploring the potential of building an enormous radio telescope on the far side of the Moon in a vast, hollowed-out crater. The telescope's reflector would be comprised of a 1-km (0.6-mile) diameter wire mesh that would be pulled into place
REE's quiet plans for world automotive industry domination are coming along quite nicely, thank you. This Israeli company's revolutionary approach to vehicle development upends all traditional approaches and offers some huge advantages moving into th
