Everything about devices with buttons, batteries, plugs or screens.

  Researchers have captured what happens in the split second before the emergence of consciousness, a fundamental state of human life. “Without consciousness, nothing else matters…” At the precise moment we become aware of stimuli, a wave of electrical activity flows from...
  Researchers have created a mathematical model that shows how selfies and other photos taken at close range can distort the appearance of the subject’s nose. “Young adults are constantly taking selfies to post to social media and think those images...
  Researchers have discovered how to identify smartphones by examining just one photo taken by the device. The advancement opens the possibility of using smartphones—instead of FaceID or other biometrics—as a form of identification to deter cybercrime. “It’s kind of like matching...
This is a very common question and I have heard it many times from people who have accidentally deleted their important files and want to have them back. Based on that, I am writing this step by step guide to...
Researchers from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the Universidad de Málaga (UMA) have collaborated with the consulting and technology company Indra on the development of a new advanced simulator of training in cybersecurity, a system that teaches...
  Many studies cite seasonal changes to explain why birth rates peak in September—a “baby boom” nine months after the holidays. But new research finds that spikes in pregnancies are actually rooted in society, not biology. The evidence comes from the...
When it comes to taking pictures, you’re going to want to ensure that they are the best quality. In some cases, you will be surprised at how something you have with you every day (your mobile phone) can provide...
The grizzled asteroid miner is a stock character in science fiction. Now, a couple of recent events - one legal and the other technological - have brought asteroid mining a step closer to reality. The legal step was taken when...
Plant-based sensors that measure the electrical capacitance of leaves can tell farmers when to activate their irrigation systems, preventing both water waste and parched plants. Continuously monitoring plant “water stress” is particularly critical in arid regions. Traditionally, water stress has...
Condensation on a can of beer or soda provides more heat than the surrounding air, which means humid weather warms up your drink more than twice as much as dry heat does. “Probably the most important thing a beer koozie...
