This incredible tiny robotic crab (smaller than a flea) is capable of bending, twisting, turning, walking, and jumping while being controlled remotely.
One of the downsides of Solar panels (on Earth) is that they can only generate energy during the day. However, an Australian-based research team is working on a solution to this problem.
Scientists developed a mobile desalination device capable of creating clean drinking water without pumps or filters, weighing less than 10 kilograms and requiring only a small solar panel to be powered.
Scientists are looking into a technology that could potentially charge an EV in mere seconds.
A group of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed an automatic, touchless cleaning method to rid solar panels of dust without the need for water.
Technology is improving at a rapid pace, and so is artificial intelligence. We may one day create a virtual world similar to our own. The ethics surrounding such a proposition make for an interesting topic.
Researchers at the Joint European Torus (JET) shattered a 24-year old record by achieving the highest-ever energy output of 59 megajoules from nuclear fusion, generated over a sustained period of time
Scientists took a critical step towards viable, self-sustaining nuclear fusion by creating so-called 'burning plasma.'

Being a far more eco-friendly alternative to the internal combustion engine doesn't mean that there isn't still room for improvement for EVs. Swedish scientists developed a clever way to improve battery recycling.
Researchers have developed a system that can convert thoughts in the brain into speech. A hopeful development for people suffering from severe speech impairments
DNA is over a million times more effective in saving information than our best current methods of data storage. Sadly, slow read and write speeds make it unsuitable for real-world applications. That is why scientists are shooting for a breakthrough proposing a faster technique for encoding data to synthesized strands of DNA
Scientists determined that multiple types of particulate matter, a principal component of air pollution, have adverse effects on children's health if a mother gets exposed during pregnancy.
While silicon is currently still the most efficient material for solar panels, it is not transparent. Researchers have therefore been looking into organic or carbon-based materials for window-friendly solar panels
Scientists have developed a longer-lasting, lighter, and more ecologically responsible alternative to the familiar lithium-ion batteries. On top of that, they should be able to store far more energy at the same weight.
