A new way to integrate data with physical objects

To get a sense of what StructCode is all about, says Mustafa Doğa Doğan, think of Superman. Not the "faster than a speeding bullet" and "more powerful than a locomotive" version, but a Superman, or Superwoman, who sees ...

Trajectoids: Creating a shape that rolls along a desired path

Normally, when we think of a rolling object, we tend to imagine a torus (like a bicycle wheel) or a sphere (like a tennis ball) that will always follow a straight path when rolling. However, the world of mathematics and science ...

Computation model paves the way for more efficient energy systems

About 70% of the energy we use in everyday life is wasted in the form of heat, produced by engines, factories, and electrical devices. However, researchers from EPFL's School of Engineering have made a significant theoretical ...
