“Friendly” EMP generator to help protect electronics against electromagnetic attack

Sandia National Laboratories researcher Leonard Martinez connects a high-voltage-insulating line that circulates oil between a coaxial ...

Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapons might be a staple of movies and video games, but they pose a very real threat. With just about every facet of modern society reliant on electronic devices, Sandia National Laboratories has developed a "friendly" EMP generator to make sure military and civilian equipment can withstand such potentially devastating bursts of electromagnetic energy.

Creepy Velox robot uses undulating fins to skate over solid ice

The Velox robot recently learned how to ice skate

We've seen quite a few interesting robot designs over the years that allow adventurous machines to negotiate difficult terrain, but few with the distinct style of the Velox robot from New York engineering firm Pliant Energy Systems. Using a novel undulating propulsion system, the bot is able to efficiently glide through the water, over rough land and has recently become adept at the art of ice-skating.

Smallest 3D transistors ever made measure a minuscule 2.5 nanometers

Engineers at MIT and the University of Colorado have developed a new fabrication technique to make ...

Moore's Law, which says that the number of transistors on a computer chip will double every two years or so, has managed to hold true for decades. But we're starting to bump up against the physical limits for how small these components can get. Now, engineers from MIT and the University of Colorado have developed a new microfabrication technique and used it to produce the smallest 3D transistors ever made, measuring about a third the size of the current leading commercial products.

Largest ever continuous oil and gas resource found in the United States

Some 46.3 billion barrels of oil, 281 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and 20 billion ...

As the United States becomes a net oil exporter for the first time in 75 years, the US Department of the Interior has announced the discovery of the largest continuous oil and gas field ever found. Situated in the Wolfcamp Shale and overlying Bone Spring Formation in Texas and the Permian Basin in New Mexico, the new resource is estimated to contain 46.3 billion barrels of oil, 281 trillion cu ft of natural gas, and 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids worth trillions of dollars.
