Self-assembling polymer could help cram more circuits onto microchips

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 07:17:32 +0000

Researchers at MIT have developed a new way to make smaller circuits, which could help break down barriers standing in the way of the continuation of Moore's Law and ever-more powerful microchips. Using a self-assembling polymer layer, the new technique could make patterns smaller than 10 nm by combining several processes already widely used to make chips, which means they could be implemented at a large scale relatively easily and cheaply.

Compact, claw-like carbon bike keeps things minimal, on road and off

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 06:58:20 +0000

(image)

A different style of compact bike from the many folding bikes we see here at New Atlas, the Minimal Bike keeps things simple, clean and light. Designed by Dutch bike guru Bram Moens, who's best known for his record-breaking M5 recumbents, the carbon fiber Minimal Bike tips the scales at under 15 lb (6.8 kg). It's designed for transitioning between traffic-filled city streets, open country roads and even dirt-and-rock trails.

AT Panther delivery drone can land on the street then drive to your doorstep

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 05:23:40 +0000

(image)

A new type of delivery drone will go the extra mile – or extra few meters, at least – to get deliveries to your door. Unlike other drones for whom the yard is good enough, the Panther small unmanned aerial system (sUAS) Air/Ground Robot from Advanced Tactics (AT) might land in the yard or street, but it won't stop there. With package in hand – or robotic claw – the drone can then drive up to your doorstep for true door-to-door deliveries.

FDA approves first drug to fight severe forms of MS

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 05:07:03 +0000

(image)

Being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) is a life sentence, as the disease can seriously affect a sufferer's motor skills and cognitive abilities, but new hope might be on the way. This week, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new drug, called ocrelizumab, which fights MS by targeting the body's B cells and is the first to have an effect on the more severe form of the disease.

Hammock tents aren't anything new, but they have attracted plenty of new energy. In the past five years or so, numerous new hammock shelters and suspended tents, some that double as ground tents or even ponchos, have mixed and mingled with older market staples. Now major US outdoor retail co-op and gear designer REI, which already sells a number of hammock tents from other manufacturers, is launching its own, stringing the Quarter Dome Air Hammock to a couple trees near you.

Art in the age of ones and zeros: Minecraft Art

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 02:02:44 +0000

Art has always been fundamentally intertwined with technology. New techniques and materials have constantly allowed artists to innovate and create new types of works. In this series we look at the impact of digital technologies on art and how artists are creating entirely novel forms of art using these modern tools. We've previously examined the fields of "datamoshing", ASCII art, BioArt and Internet Art. In this instalment we examine the quietly revolutionary world of Minecraft Art.

Team Wendy to target blast waves and rotational injuries in next-gen military helmets

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 01:27:40 +0000

(image)

Amid talk about traumatic brain injuries in the military, suppliers are working harder than ever to design smart products to protect soldiers. One of those suppliers is Team Wendy. Born out of family tragedy, the Cleveland-based team has transitioned from small ski-gear manufacturer to supplier for the Australian and American military. New Atlas spoke with head of product development, Ron Szalkowski, and CEO Jose-Rizo Patron about making smarter, safer helmets.

Strange behavior of light particles challenges quantum theory

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 00:03:48 +0000

(image)

At the super-small level of all things quantum, most bets are off in terms of the rules of normal physics. Still, there are some behaviors in this arena that researchers felt they could count on – such as the way entangled photons operate. But new research out of the University of East Anglia (UEA) in the UK has now shown that even those tiny particles of light don't behave as we previously thought.

It's been more than five years since Apple first introduced Siri and we started having conversations with our devices. Amazon's voice-based Alexa platform, Microsoft Cortana and Google Assistant have broadened the conversation in recent years and so perhaps it's no surprise that we now have Vinci, a pair of wireless headphones with a smart assistant built right in.

After months of leaks and rumors, there wasn't much left to the imagination before Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. But no matter how many alleged press images and stealthily-taken spy shots we'd seen of the phones, there's nothing quite like gazing at it with your own eyes and holding it in your own hands. We got to do just that at Samsung's New York launch event today.

Though MIDI controllers are generally used for digital music making, the automat from dadamachines offers laptop or smartphone tunesmiths the opportunity to create something distinctly analog. A central control box acts as the go-between for MIDI software and a bunch of bashers and beaters that can be placed near such things as plastic boxes, metal balls or glass jars to sound the melody.
