Scientists Have Finally Mapped the Whole Human Genome

Scientists have finished mapping the entire human genome, about 20 years after most of the map was complete. In new research this week, a team reports they have achieved a gapless genome sequence, accounting for 8% of genetic information not previously known. The missing data may provide more insights about the evolutionary journey of humans as well as our susceptibility to diseases…


Researchers Develop Acoustic Wireless Charging Technique Capable of Charging Electronic Implants

SEOUL — South Korean researchers have developed an ultrasonic wave-based wireless charging technology that can charge electronic implants such as a pacemaker designed to help regulate heart function, or drug delivery implants. By using ultrasonic wave-based charger technology, researchers can create medical implant devices that do not need to be regularly taken out of the body to have their batteries replaced…


Boston Dynamics’ Spot Is Being Tested as a Robotic Security Guard Protecting the Remains of Pompeii

Serving as a robotic security guard might feel like a dystopic use of the amazing technology powering Boston Dynamics’ Spot, but the robotic dog is actually well suited to protecting a historically significant area like Pompeii, whose crumbling ruins still pose a safety hazard, especially when it comes to protecting what’s left of the city from relic hunters…
