The ability to control one quantum particle by manipulating another somewhere else sounds like the stuff of science fiction. Now physicists say they know how to do it
The US Naval Surface Warfare Center has created an Android app that secretly records your environment and reconstructs it as a 3D virtual model for a malicious user to browse
“One hundred years from now, the role of science and technology will be about becoming part of nature rather than trying to control it.”
Physicists have worked out how to cloak a region of space from the quantum world, thereby shielding it from reality itself
Intelligent dust particles embedded in the brain could form an entirely new form of brain-machine interface, say engineers
The ability to teleport photons through 100 kilometres of free space opens the way for satellite-based quantum communications, say researchers
The Internet of Things probably already influences your life. And if it doesn’t, it soon will, say computer scientists
How will a mass influx of robots affect human employment?
Big Data is revolutionizing 21st-century business without anybody knowing what it actually means. Now computer scientists have come up with a definition they hope everyone can agree on.
Unlike conventional semiconductors, graphene cannot be switched off, a problem that threatens to scupper its use in future generations of transistors. Now physicists think they’ve found a solution.
