According to IBM, this stop-motion film (made with individual molecules of carbon monoxide) is the smallest movie that has been, or ever will be, created.
The structure of cicada wings can destroy bacteria, and it's the first natural material we've found that does it.
The spaceship is about the same size across as a strand of your hair, and it was 3D printed by lasers in less than one minute.
Trying to get your clothes clean in eco-friendly cold water can be a pain, even if you get your roommate to do all of your laundry for you like I do. Here's a trick: have you tried adding a handful of diamonds? Apparently, it works wonders, and it'll save you money on your water heating bill, making it totally worthwhile.
With a few exceptions, most of the battery technology that we write about isn't exactly close to making your gadgets better in the near term. This battery technology is, and it could triple battery capacity within a year.
There isn't anything that can't be made better with a generous helping of science, and researchers at MIT have applied their giant brains and equally giant thesauruses to create a new sort of glass that's robustly super-hydrophobic and has omnidirectional broadband super-transmissivity. Clearly, this is the glass of the future.
What's about four times the width of a human hair and goes from zero to existing in four minutes flat? If you guessed "that race car with the flat tires in the picture right there," you'd be right. It's small, it's fast and there are lasers involved.
Go ahead and throw that iPhone, Android, tablet, camera or whatever into the water. It'll still work, if it's treated with Liquipel's special nano coating. Yeah, waterproofing that doesn't require chunky cases of any kind.
I don't know about you, but this picture has just blown my mind. What we're looking at here is an actual image which shows electrons orbiting around a molecule. Whoa.
Your watch battery isn't small. This battery is small. At six times thinner than a bacterium, Rice University's new battery is 60,000 times smaller than a AAA battery.
