Smart mat can help diabetics prevent amputations

A Jackson State University professor challenged his engineering students to develop a technology that solves a problem for their senior project. And one particular group decided to create a smart mat that can help diabetics save their lower limbs from amputation. The mat detects the temperatures of …

Scientists create quantum entanglement at room temperature

Quantum entanglement, where two particles are inextricably linked, is a real thing. However, creating that odd behavior has been extremely difficult so far -- you have to cool things down to near absolute zero to pull it off on a significant scale. Or rather, you did. Researchers have successfully …

'Electronic Plants' Grow Wires Inside Themselves to Form Living Machines

Inside most plants is a complex network of cells and pathways that pass water, nutrients and information from the roots to the leaves and everywhere in-between. Eager to take advantage of this "vascular circuitry," researchers at Linköping University in Sweden managed to get the plant to …
