The FallSkip device is attached to the waistband

Nobody likes falling down. For the elderly, however, doing so can cause serious injuries from which they never fully recover. What's preferable is for them to avoid getting hurt in the first place – and that's why the FallSkip system was created.

The Pulse adds distortion, reverb and delay effects to the sound coming out of an acoustic ...

Acoustic guitar players who want to fatten up their sound with a little distortion, add some roomy-sounding reverb or push out some delay can pop in a soundhole pickup and cable it up to pedals and an amp or route sounds captured by a microphone through and effects loop. With the Pulse, they can tap into such things from the instrument itself – no cables, no pedals, no amps.

An MIT team has developed a new kind of artificial synapse, enabling more brain-like computer chips

Right now, you're carrying around the most powerful computer in existence – the human brain. This naturally super-efficient machine is far better than anything humans have ever built, so it's not surprising that scientists are trying to reverse-engineer it. Rather than binary bits of information, neuromorphic computers are built with networks of artificial neurons, and now an MIT team has developed a more lifelike synapse to better connect those neurons.

Researchers at work examining coral bleaching in the Great Barrier Reef

Australia's Great Barrier Reef is in a bit of trouble. Back-to-back coral bleaching events brought on by warming waters have devastated areas of the Reef over the past two years, and 2018 has brought another feisty and familiar foe: the predatory crown-of-thorns starfish. Things are so dire that the Australian government has announced a AU$60 million (US$48 million) plan to preserve the world's largest living structure, including using submerged fans to pump cold water over the top of it and an "all-out assault" on the starfish. But environmental experts are wondering how much impact this likely to have, and whether it is simply a way of avoiding a larger, more complex issue.

This eight-piston monobloc brake caliper developed by Bugatti is the world’s first brake caliper to be ...

The name Bugatti is associated with bleeding-edge motor cars rather than 3D printing, but the automaker has announced it has produced a new brake caliper that is not only the largest in the motor industry, but is the largest component to be printed from titanium alloy. The product of a joint effort by the Bugatti Development Department and Laser Zentrum Nord in Hamburg, the eight-piston monobloc brake caliper may one day lead to auto components that combine superior performance with faster, cheaper production.
