Scientists discover how droplets levitate on liquid surface
MIT Scientists discover how droplets can levitate on a liquid surface. Have you ever seen droplets skitter across a puddle on a rainy day, or when you pour milk into your coffee? Researchers have just found an explanation for why that happens under some conditions. According to MIT scientists, to have a droplet float on the surface before combining with the rest of the liquid, temperature differences is the key. And their latest research even shows

An inspiring story of a 21-year-old chinese footballer
Many people couldn't believe when he scored a goal because he was one legged. 'He Yiyi' had lost his left leg due to bone cancer. His left leg was diagnosed as osteosarcoma, a cancer that most commonly occurs in children and young adults. Doctors told him that his best chance of long-term survival was to have his leg amputated. His formative years He Yiyi was just like any other child  playing football in the streets

This heavy metal music album is created by an AI

An artificial intelligence recently released a death metal album created entirely by machine learning algorithms. There is already programmable machine to create new music. But this time is different. Because you can't tell the difference. With advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning, computers are now capable of creating music that is difficult find whether it’s created by man or machine. And an example for this is Coditany of Timeness, a black metal album made

Scientists have built artificial muscles that gives robots ‘Superpowers’

Scientists have built artificial muscles that gives robots ‘Superpowers’
Harvard and MIT scientists have built soft robot muscles with origami skeletons that can lift 1,000 times their own weight. Soft robotics has made leaps and bounds as researchers experiment with different materials and designs to allow machines to move in ways that mimic living organisms. But increased flexibility and dexterity has a trade-off of reduced strength, as softer materials are generally not as strong or resilient as inflexible ones, which limits their use. Scientists from

"There seems to be so much existing bias that countries around the world seem

Your body is an Amazing Molecular Machine

Your body is an Amazing Molecular Machine
Every day in an adult human roughly 50-70 billion of your cells die. They may be damaged, stressed, or just plain old - this is normal, in fact, it’s called programmed cell death. To make up for that loss, right now, inside your body, billions of cells are dividing, creating new cells. And cell division, also called mitosis, requires an army of tiny molecular machines. DNA is a good place to start - the double

Gravity Light – Lighting a billion lives

Over 1.2 billion people globally have no access to electricity and millions more have an unreliable supply. Instead, they use dangerous, polluting and expensive kerosene lamps for light. Solution to this problem was designed by two designers. Jim Reeves is a London based designer and along with Martin Riddiford, he has spent four years developing a light that would provide a viable alternative to kerosene and sun-powered lamps for developing nations. GravityLight works by harnessing
