A wearable device so thin and soft you won't even notice it

Wearable human-machine interfaces—devices that can collect and store important health information about the wearer, among other uses—have benefited from advances in electronics, materials and mechanical designs. But current ...

An intuitive physics model to predict the effects of a collision

Humans have the innate ability to predict the effect of collisions, merely using their common sense. In many cases, humans can even predict the results of similar collisions in situations in which mass, friction, or other ...

Could machine learning mean the end of understanding in science?

Much to the chagrin of summer party planners, weather is a notoriously chaotic system. Small changes in precipitation, temperature, humidity, wind speed or direction, etc. can balloon into an entirely new set of conditions ...
