New virtual-reality testing ground for drones

MIT engineers have built up another virtual-reality training system called 'Flight Goggles' for drones that empowers a vehicle to "see" a rich, virtual condition...
Jose Gomez-Marquez, co-director of MIT’s Little Devices Lab, holds a sheet of paper diagnostic blocks, which can be easily printed and then combined in various ways to create customized diagnostic devices.

Plug-and-play diagnostic devices

MIT scientists have developed a system with a set of modular blocks that can produce diagnostic devices. The system called Ampli blocks i.e., plug-and-play devices can test blood...
During a Year in Orbit, IceCube Created a New Map of Earth's Clouds

Satellite captured first Global map of lce clouds

While observing Earth from a small space station, astronomers found big, white clouds spreading across the planet. Via an experimental small satellite, they found...
