A 3D Printed Brain Could Make it Easier to Find Cancer Treatments

Glioblastoma is the deadliest form of brain tumor—less than 10 percent of people who are diagnosed with it will survive more than five years. A group of researchers has devised a new way to study this rapidly spreading cancer, using a three-dimensional structure made of an agglomeration of human brain cells and biomaterials.

Who Makes Better Decisions: Humans or Robots

In cities, we depend on apps such as Waze and Google Maps to help us discover new places. At home, we use these apps to beat the rush-hour traffic and find the quickest routes to school, work, and other places we regularly frequent. But sometimes, we doubt a suggested turn; we question a re-route; we suspect an arrival-time estimate.

Wearable predicts autism related outbursts a minute in advance

What would you do if you could predict the future a minute in advance? That might not seem like a long time, but for caretakers of people with autism, knowing what will happen 60 seconds from now could be enough time to prevent an aggressive outburst.

Robots are coming to the seafood industry. Here's why

New England is known for being an excellent source of lobster and other seafood. But while fishing is done locally, much of the processing is outsourced to other countries. A lack of local manpower means scallops caught off the coast of Massachusetts might travel to China or India for processing before they appear on your plate at a restaurant in Boston.

Squid skin could be the solution to new materials

Cephalopods—which include octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish—are masters of disguise. They can camouflage to precisely match their surroundings in a matter of seconds, and no scientist has quite been able to replicate the spectacle. But new research brings us a step closer.

Flying robot is the newest expert inspecting your city's bridges

Researchers have joined forces to develop the Aerial Robotic Infrastructure Analyst. This tabletop-sized drone uses photo and video capture techniques, as well as state-of-the-art laser scanners, to create a high-resolution 3-D model of the bridge, which can then be safely analyzed by an inspector on the ground.
