This novel fisheye lens is completely flat

The single piece of glass produces crisp panoramic images. To capture panoramic views in a single shot, photographers typically use fisheye lenses — ultra-wide-angle lenses...

Scientists create better material for wearable biosensors

Biosensors that are wearable on human skin or safely used inside the body are increasingly prevalent for both medical applications and everyday health monitoring. Finding...

New way to predict the slow death of lithium-ion batteries

The new tech could improve driving range estimates and prolong battery life. Batteries fade as they age, slowly losing power and storage capacity. As in people,...

Scientists find a better way to detect prediabetes

In a new study, researchers have developed a patch of needles connected to a paper sensor for diagnosing conditions such as prediabetes. Luckily, this patch...

New photon device offers ‘x-ray vision’ through fog

Using a new algorithm, researchers have reconstructed the movements of individual particles of light to see through clouds, fog, and other obstructions. It’s like a...

Scientists find way to see through clouds and fog

Like a comic book come to life, researchers at Stanford University have developed a kind of X-ray vision - only without the X-rays. Working with...

New glove-like wearable device could mimic sense of touch

Engineers have invented a soft wearable device which simulates the sense of touch and has wide potential for medical, industrial and entertainment applications. What if...

This tiny instrument could measure the faintest magnetic fields

Physicists at the University of Basel have developed a minuscule instrument able to detect extremely faint magnetic fields. At the heart of the superconducting quantum...

Inexpensive laser cutter could create new wave of bioelectronics

On a simple coffee table sits an inexpensive commercial laser cutter, usually meant for modifying wood or plastic. However, in the lab of University of...

Scientists create flexible, printed coil for stringed instruments

The wires inside an electric guitar to help produce quality sound can stretch for miles – even the length of a university campus. The copper...
