Foamin, which consists of a single wire connected to a piece of foam and a microcontroller, detects multiple deformations or touch inputs.  (Image Credit: University of Tokyo)   Tactile sensors provide robots with enhanced movement or improved granularity capabilities. Soft sensors enable human-computer interfaces to have more interactivity. These sensors were difficult to utilize in the past because they needed multiple devices or complex wiring. To overcome that, researchers from th ...
A 2 nm wafer was developed at IBM Research's Albany facility. There are hundreds of chips on this wafer. (Image Credit: IBM)   The semiconductor industry has been striving to produce smaller, faster, more powerful, and energy-efficient microchips for hybrid cloud, AI, and the Internet of Things. On May 6th, IBM announced it developed the world's smallest, most powerful 2-nanometer chip. These 2 nm chips could perform 45% better or consume 75% less energy than existing state-of-the-art 7 nm ...
A 193,1 million USD loss because of a bad conversion December 11th, 1998. The Mars Climate Orbiter blasts off, starting its voyage of over 200 million kilometers to Mars. Its mission was to orbit and survey the red planet, looking at both the atmospheric conditions and any surface changes due to climate. It was part of a project to send several missions to Mars and was to pave the way for future landers.   23rd of September 1999. After a long journey, the Mars Climate Orbiter begins a seri ...
