Sensor-Wearing Bees Can Help Farmers Monitor Crop Health

Drones are useful as tools for surveillance due to their ability to be piloted remotely. However the only downside to drone technology, at least right now in the state that it’s in, is battery life. For the most part drones can’t fly for too long before needing a recharge, which can be a bit disruptive during the course of work.


Researchers Discover Giant Cave, Keeps Its Location A Secret From Instagram Tourists

There are many natural wonders of the world that people should explore and bask in its wonder, but unfortunately thanks to social media and the desire for “Likes”, there have been many instances of people destroying nature and artwork and desecrating ancient artifacts and places for the sake of a photo.


‘Clear Evidence’ Found Between Cell Phone Radiation And Rat Tumors

Given that our cellphones (and a lot of our electronic devices) give off radiation, there have been many who wonder whether or not our phones give off enough radiation where it could be potentially dangerous to our health. Now according to an updated study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program, it seems that there is “clear evidence” of health risks.


RFID Tags Could Be Used To Warn Of Food Contamination

Some of you might have heard the news in which there have been reports of a potential salmonella outbreak. Now as much as producers and retailers try to minimize food contamination, sometimes bad stuff happens, but if researchers at MIT have it their way, we could soon spot foods that might have been contaminated.

Samsung Testing Controlling TV Using Your Brain

The idea of being able to control objects using our mind seems like something out of a sci-fi/fantasy movie or story, but it’s actually not a far-fetched reality. In the past we have seen how using our brains, we can control devices like wheelchairs, which is why using our brain to control our TV doesn’t seem entirely out of the question.


Heat Rejecting Film Could Reduce Our Need For Air-Conditioning

During the summer, it can get pretty hot to the point where using a fan simply might not be enough to keep cool, and this is where air-conditioning comes in. Unfortunately using air-conditioning requires a lot of energy which can run you up a huge bill, and it is also not particularly good for the environment.


Researchers Develop Microneedles That Dissolve In Your Eye

When it comes to treatment for certain eye conditions, sometimes eye drops are prescribed. However sometimes eye drops aren’t the most effective way of dispensing medication, although the alternative are injections which let’s face it, seeing a needle come towards your eye is probably not the most pleasant thing that you can look forward to.


Scientists Use Math To Create The ‘Perfect’ Pizza

Different pizza shops do their pizza differently and this is due to a variety of reasons, such as the dough used, how much sauce is used to layer the base of the pizza, how hot the oven is, how thin the dough of the pizza has been kneaded and tossed, and so on, so suffice to say it’s hard to create the “perfect” pizza.


Researchers Train AI To Spot Alzheimer’s In Patients

A lot of medical conditions typically have symptoms leading up to the actual disease, and because of this, sometimes patterns are useful at identifying a potentially more serious issue at hand. This is what researchers have been trying to do when they trained an AI to help diagnose Alzheimer’s years before a doctor would have.


Future Electric Cars Could Store Energy In Carbon Fiber Bodies

At the moment electric cars store their energy in their batteries. The problem with these batteries is that they need to be big enough to sustain the car traveling for hundreds of miles, and in turn they also pose some potential risks such as exploding. They can also be very expensive to replace.


iPhone Xs Max’s Display Found To Be Gentle On Your Eyes

An issue that we’ve been hearing about in recent times is blue light, which is basically the light emitted from our electronic gadgets that have been found to interrupt our sleeping patterns, and in general are said to be bad for one’s eyes as well. This has led companies such as Apple to introduce Night Shift mode that modifies the temperature of the display to make it “warmer”.


Sucking CO2 Out Of The Sky Might Not Be As Expensive As We Thought

While carbon dioxide (CO2) is a naturally occuring gas (we expel CO2 when we breathe out) and is used by plants during the photosynthesis process, just like all things in life, too much of something is usually bad, and the excess of CO2 has resulted in climate change, and not necessarily for the better.


Google & Harvard Use AI To Predict The Aftershocks Of Earthquakes

When an earthquake takes place, naturally the size of the earthquake itself is something to be concerned over, where it could be something small, or it could result in a massive natural disaster. However the aftershocks are also something that need to be considered, where it could result in structures weakened by the initial earthquake to collapse.


Spear-Wielding Robot Can Protect Coral Reefs Against The Lionfish

It is funny how it seems that nature was designed to allow everything to live in harmony with each other, where each living being seems to have a purpose in the ecosystem. However sometimes it doesn’t always work out that way, like the lionfish who has been known to wreak havoc on the coral reefs.
