We want our 3D printers to do more. Most new 3D printing mechanisms are introducing easy-to-use or cheaper variants, but nobody is fully exploiting their potential to create entire new range of objects. Well, with Mosaic Manufacturing's new device rightly called 'Palette', any 3D printer can be made to print a single object in a variety of different colours. Until now, anyone willing to have a colour 3D printer had to shell out thousands of dollars. With Palette, a simple device can be...

A team of physicists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has built a revolutionary tabletop particle detector that can observe and identify individual electrons in a radioactive gas. In the experiment called ‘Project 8’, the detector is basically developed on a phenomenon known as cyclotron radiation. In this phenomenon, the charged moving particles such as electrons emit electromagnetic radiation (radio waves) at a frequency of about 26 gigahertz in a magnetic field. However,...

A team of researchers led by Ashutosh Saxena, Asst. Prof. Computer Science at Cornell University, have developed a new system that can anticipate the driver's actions so that he or she could be warned against doing it. For instance, the car safety system can predict if the driver is about to take a turn or change lanes and determine if that action could be dangerous. Depending on the system's algorithm that calculates the probability of something bad happening, it warns the driver to avoid...
