Applying the patch takes about five minutes

Dental resin composites may be used to fill cavities in teeth, but when it comes to surgically fixing broken bones, metal plates and screws are still standard. That may not be the case for much longer, though, if a new dental-inspired adhesive bone patch enters use.

The Bajau people of Southeast Asia spend much of their time diving, and new research has ...

Evolution is such a slow process that it can be easy to be fooled into thinking it's not still happening. But certain populations of fish and geckos have adapted to changing environments in a span of mere years, and a recent, large genetic study has shown that humans are gradually weeding out harmful genes. Now, researchers have discovered one of the most striking examples of natural selection at work in humans: a seafaring population of people with a mutation that allows them to dive deeper and hold their breath longer.

When it first rolled onto the scene as a prototype in 2013, the OX pointed to a future where lightweight, high-payload trucks could be shipped to developing nations, put together within a day and then used to cart people and cargo over rough terrain. We've just gotten a little closer to this reality, with Shell commissioning a pre-production version to be shipped off to India this year.
