We've seen microfluidic devices used for everything from creating organ-on-a-chip systems, to diagnosing ebola. Now, scientists at MIT have created a device that uses acoustic vibrations to sort cells, paving the way for faster and more convenient blood test machines...

Researchers may have tapped into the "secret sauce" that allows sharks, skates and rays to detect weak electric fields produced by their prey. Actually, it turns out to be a mysterious jelly, but one that could have implications for future technologies... Continue Reading Highly-conductive shark jelly could inspire new tech

Angry Birds is a game without a narrative. To say that I was concerned about what the adaptation of the mobile game would need to do to make a 90-minute feature feel like a movie is a little understated.
