Engineers discover highly conductive materials for more efficient electronics
Engineers have discovered that interfacing two particular oxide-based materials makes them highly conductive, a boon for future electronics that could result in much more power-efficient laptops, electric cars and home appliances that also don't need cumbersome power (...)

New robot overcomes obstacles
It looks like a bicycle chain, but has just twelve segments about the size of a fist. In each segment there is a motor. This describes pretty much the robot developed by the four bachelor students in Computer Engineering.

Scientists program cells to remember and respond to series of stimuli
Engineers have programmed cells to remember and respond to events. This approach to circuit design enables scientists to create complex cellular state machines and track cell histories.

5G wireless networks will be shaped by engineers
Open air is getting crowded. Signals streaming back and forth from smart devices stretch existing fourth-generation wireless networks almost to their limits. As demands on these systems increase, engineers aim to open new frontiers in cutting-edge wireless communications to develop the next (...)

Sega Saturn CD cracked after 20 years
A look into Dr Abrasive's lab and a super detailed behind-the-scenes of what it took to engineer a plug-in-flash-card for the Sega Saturn. Stop whatever you're doing (if at all safe), make a nice hot drink like coffee, tea, or some coco, sit down on the couch with your laptop or phone or (...)

Lab storing information securely in DNA
Bioengineers in the United States have developed a new method for encrypting and storing sensitive information in DNA. Digital data storage degrades and can become obsolete and old-school books and paper require lots of space.

Look, no hands! On the autobahn in Audi's driverless car
Engineers testing driver-free vehicles say aggressive driving and road rage could become a thing of the past. But are their cars any fun? Giving up the controls was as breathtakingly simple as touching two turquoise coloured buttons below the steering wheel with both thumbs. A melodious bell (...)
