MIT students are designing a probe to study the asteroid that is heading near Earth in 2029. What they learn could help build a defense to avoid future asteroid collisions.
MIT engineers have successfully developed a microfluidic device that can imitate the transport of water a plant.
Researchers at MIT and Harvard announced a novel way to shield bioengineered pancreatic Beta cells from the body's immune system.
Even though the solar technology is not new, per se, a recent discovery can change the way energy has been used and stored so far. The difference lies in the way the energy is stored before it releases
Many gadgets, biological, machine or environmental, use the energy from minute motions to offer limitless source of power. Scientists at MIT have used this phenomenon to generate a new technique. In their latest offering, the scientists have revealed that natural movements and actions can be used for harvesting energy
Researchers at MIT have developed a new football-sized underwater robot that could soon help protect America's ports. The robot can discreetly follow alongside a ship and perform ultrasound scans to search for smuggled contraband.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have developed a wrist-mounted robotic device that would add two fingers to a person's hand helping him/her to complete tasks like removing a bottle cap or twisting a screwdriver.
The idea sounds crazy but researchers have recently beamed Wi-Fi on the moon for the first time and the connection is faster than the United States' national average.
Researchers have created an imaging system that can reveal neural activities throughout the brains of living beings, generating 3-D movies of entire brain at the millisecond timescale.
Researchers have finally discovered how energy moves within a certain types of electrodes in cells, overturning the conventional school of thoughts that has reigned for more than 80 years.
A team of engineers at MIT are trying to adapt magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - a technique commonly used to diagnose tumors and other medical conditions - to a much smaller scale allowing researchers to visualize gene activity inside the brains of living animals.
MIT engineers have coaxed bacterial cells to produce biofilms that can incorporate nonliving materials. These 'living materials' will combine the advantage of live cells such as producing complex biological molecules and nonliving materials that are capable of conducting electricity or emitting light.
Scientists have developed a new aquatic robot that completely replicates realistic movements of fish producing an illusion of a real animal. The robot is also identical in basic engineering.
Researchers at MIT have demonstrated a water filter made out of a small piece of sapwood from a white pine tree which can get rid of 99 percent of the bacteria from the contaminated water.
