Audi’s 25th Hour Flow Research shows more smart cars on the road will decrease traffic, but it won’t be enough to solve the issue of congested roads. A look at how smart cars can improve traffic flow. (Photo via Audi)   At the end of a long day, you’re ready to go home and binge watch some shows on Netflix, work on your classic car, stare at a wall, do whatever blows your hair back. But before that, you have to deal with rush hour traffic. It’s a nightmare. Congeste ...
Part of Google’s guide to bringing native hearing aid support to Android (Photo via Google)   According to the World Health Organization, roughly 466 million people suffering from hearing loss. That number is expected to grow to 900 million by 2050. With this in mind, many companies are stepping up and providing aids to help those afflicted. For instance, there are Bluetooth hearing aids compatible with iPhones, but this leaves Android users in the dust. Google is hoping to fix this ...
Those who rejected Google Glass as a useful device could be regretting it, as Glass could be helping in the treatment of autism in children.

For those who do not know, Glass is a type of accessory which looks like a combination of eyeglasses a ...
The team of researchers is looking to make MRIs up to 10 times faster. Increased scan times may take some of the dread out of MRIs. (Photo via Getty Images)   MRIs are important procedures used to detect brain tumors, brain injuries, infection, and dementia just to name a few conditions. But it’s a long, drawn-out process, not to mention stressful. And if you’re claustrophobic, the thought of going into that narrow tube is terrifying. This is why scientists with the Facebook Ar ...
Introduction This short blog post discusses an attempt to make test leads for hopefully better measurements!   Measuring small resistances is really difficult with the usual 2-wire measurement with multimeters. The multimeter will measure the resistance of the leads as well as the resistance-under-test. Although this could in theory be nulled out, the result can still be poor because the connection still depends on the variable resistance between the probes and the device, i.e. contact ...
In 2015, researchers set out to track bees to understand the reasons behind the slow decline in bee population.

It seems to be a very simple and clear shot on the journey of survival, and on the surface, it probably makes a lot of sense. Maybe that is the reason mankind appears to be at the top of ...
