  1. NASA Research Gives New Insights into How the Moon Got 'Inked'Read the original story

    Monday May 2 | Wireless Design & Development

    A powerful combination of observations and computer simulations is giving new clues to how the moon got its mysterious "tattoos" -- swirling patterns of light and dark found at over a hundred locations across the lunar surface. "These patterns, called 'lunar swirls,' appear almost painted on the surface of the moon," said John Keller of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

  2. What New Wearable Sensors Can Reveal From PerspirationRead the original story

    Feb 1, 2016 | Wireless Design & Development

    When engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, say they are going to make you sweat, it is all in the name of science. Specifically, it is for a flexible sensor system that can measure metabolites and electrolytes in sweat, calibrate the data based upon skin temperature and sync the results in real time to a smartphone.

  3. Will Computers Ever Truly Understand What We're Saying?Read the original story

    Jan 12, 2016 | Wireless Design & Development

    From Apple's Siri to Honda's robot Asimo, machines seem to be getting better and better at communicating with humans. But some neuroscientists caution that today's computers will never truly understand what we're saying because they do not take into account the context of a conversation the way people do.

  8. Self-Sweeping Laser Could Dramatically Shring 3-D Mapping SystemsRead the original story

    Sep 4, 2015 | Wireless Design & Development

    A new approach that uses light to move mirrors could usher in a new generation of laser technology for a wide range of applications, including remote sensing, self-driving car navigation and 3D biomedical imaging. A team of University of California, Berkeley, engineers led by Connie Chang-Hasnain, a professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences, used a novel concept to automate the way a light source changes its wavelength as it sweeps the surrounding landscape.

  9. NASA Scientists Help Understand Newly Discovered PlanetRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 17, 2015 | Wireless Design & Development

    One of the best ways to learn how our solar system evolved is to look at younger star systems in the early stages of development. Recently, a team of astronomers including NASA scientists discovered a Jupiter-like planet within a young system that could serve as a decoder ring for understanding how planets formed around our sun.

  11. Small Tilt in Magnets Makes Them Viable Memory ChipsRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 4, 2015 | Wireless Design & Development

    University of California, Berkeley, researchers have discovered a new way to switch the polarization of nanomagnets, paving the way for high-density storage to move from hard disks onto integrated circuits. The advance, to be reported Monday, Aug. 3, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could lead to computers that turn on in an instant and operate with far greater speed and significantly less power.
