Snake robots learn to turn by following the lead of real sidewinders
Researchers who develop snake-like robots have picked up a few tricks from real sidewinder rattlesnakes on how to make rapid and even sharp turns with their undulating, modular device. Working with colleagues at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Zoo Atlanta, they have analyzed the motions (...)

Quantum correlation can imply causation
Contrary to the statistician's slogan, in the quantum world, certain kinds of correlations do imply causation. New research shows that in quantum mechanics, certain kinds of observations will let you distinguish whether there is a common cause or a cause-effect relation between two variables. (...)

New approach uses 'twisted light' to increase efficiency of quantum cryptography systems
Researchers have developed a way to transfer 2.05 bits per photon by using 'twisted light.' This remarkable achievement is possible because the researchers used the orbital angular momentum of the photons to encode information, rather than the more commonly used polarization of light. The new (...)

Superfast computers a step closer as a silicon chip's quantum capabilities are improved
Research has demonstrated laser control of quantum states in an ordinary silicon wafer and observation of these states via a conventional electrical measurement.

An 'octopus' robot with eight limbs developed to clear rubble in Fukushima, Japan
Researchers in Japan have jointly developed a robot with four arms and four crawlers which can perform multiple tasks simultaneously to help clean up the rubble left after the 2011 quake-tsunami disasters in Minamisoma, Fukushima.

Citizen science project helps scientists develop a quantum computer
Since Quantum Games came online as a citizen science project to help scientists develop a quantum computer, the game has been played 400,000 times, making it possible for researchers to discover a kind of 'atlas of human thoughts.'

Quantum dots 'breathe' in response to stress
Researchers have watched nanoscale semiconductor crystals expand and shrink in response to powerful pulses of laser light. This ultrafast "breathing" provides new insight about how such tiny structures change shape as they start to melt -- information that can help guide researchers in (...)

Text message reminders boost breast cancer screening attendance
Women who received a text message reminding them about their breast cancer screening appointment were 20 per cent more likely to attend than those who were not texted, according to a study. "Our research found that a cheap, simple text-message-reminder could boost the number of women -- (...)

Finding support for surgery on Facebook
Despite the popularity of social networking sites like Facebook, scientists are only beginning to learn how they affect human interaction. In a recent study, researchers examined Facebook conversations to better understand how people seek and receive support on social networking sites. When the (...)

Electronic waste has energy value
Using discarded electronic boards, researchers have developed a system for obtaining clean hydrogen that can be used as fuel. The researchers have already registered the patent of the process in Japan.

Understanding democracy, development traps using a data-driven approach
Why do some countries seem to develop quickly while others remain poor? This question is at the heart of the so-called poverty or development trap problem. Using mathematics on open data sets researchers now present new insights into this issue, and also suggest which countries can be expected (...)
