Google’s one-gigabit service made a big statement, but what’s still far from clear is who actually uses it, and for what.
A quantum internet capable of sending perfectly secure messages has been running at Los Alamos National Labs for the last two and a half years, say researchers
Intelligent dust particles embedded in the brain could form an entirely new form of brain-machine interface, say engineers
Cheap, simple water filters made of plant xylem could dramatically reduce the incidence of water-borne diseases in places without access to clean drinking water, say engineers.
Urban "Fingerprints" Finally Reveal the Similarities (and Differences) Between American and European Cities
Travelers have long noticed that some American cities “feel” more European than others. Now physicists have discovered a way to measure the “fingerprint” of a city that captures this sense.
Security analysts reveal the inner workings of China’s efforts to block the Tor anonymity network–and how to get around this censorship.
Physicists have teleported quantum information from one ensemble of atoms to another 150 metres away, a demonstration that paves the way towards quantum routers and a quantum Internet
First, they teleported photons, then atoms and ions. Now one physicist has worked out how to do it with energy, a technique that has profound implications for the future of physics.
The first large-scale measurements of the way humans play Rock-Paper-Scissors reveal a hidden pattern of play that opponents can exploit to gain a vital edge.
