Words decoded from brain signals

In an early step toward letting severely paralyzed people speak with their thoughts, researchers have translated brain signals into words using two grids of 16 microelectrodes implanted beneath the skull but atop the brain. “We have been able to decode spoken words using only signals from the brain with a device that has promise for […]

Visible light data network under development




The next generation of wireless communications technology will use visible light instead of radio waves, with data piggybacking on interior lighting systems which researchers say will offer both greater speed and better security than today’s radio networks. Boston University’s College of Engineering (BU) is developing the “smart lighting” system using low-power light emitting diodes (LEDs) […]

Hot Halo Find Confirms Theory




NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory has detected an extensive halo of hot gas around the spiral galaxy known as NGC 5746. There’s a sense of relief among scientists, as the discovery supports the theory that galaxies like our Milky Way are still accumulating matter from the gradual inflow of intergalactic gas. The halo encompassing the immense […]
