Grab your s’mores fixin’s because a professor of mechanical engineering at Duke University believes he figured out how to build and engineer the perfect fire that burns with the maximum amount of heat as possible.
Male mice sing different songs in different contexts when courting lady mice, saving their best stuff for females they haven't even met yet. That's according to new research out of Duke University that documented male mice changing their tunes, literally, as social contexts changed.
To help speed up screenings for spotting Melanoma, the most deadliest type of skin cancer, dermatologists already use digital cameras with wide-angle lenses to capture images of a patient's body. But to ensure there's enough resolution to zoom in close and visually examine a specific area, researchers at Duke…
A cloaking device that makes you appear completely invisible is still trapped in the realm of science fiction. But researchers at Duke University have successfully created a cloaking device that works with sound instead, making an object completely invisible to SONAR and other acoustic imaging techniques.
Forget about stealing your neighbor's Wi-Fi to surf the internet. Using cheap everyday materials, researchers at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering have developed a remarkable device that can convert microwave signals, like those used to wirelessly transmit the internet, into usable electricity. So in the…
Controlling games with brainwaves is a vogue research subject—Patricia Hernandez herself tested out a demo that involved tossing trucks telekinetically—but a team of researchers have applied it to a competitive game—Pong—with the goal of allowing a paralyzed person to make the ceremonial kickoff of the 2014 World Cup.
If The Hunt for Red October taught us anything (besides the fact that Sean Connery makes for a horrible Russian) it's that submarines can be tracked by the sounds they make moving through the water. Well, not for much longer.
This glowing green monstrosity isn't a radioactive Doctor Who monster, it's a common fruitfly, part of Duke University's awesome microscopy gallery. (The right image shows a larval brain, the left shows dorsal closure.) Gallery below.
Duke University has now shifted the blame from the iPhone to Cisco, for causing the reported wireless outage. Duke 's chief information officer, Tracey Futhey, detailed; "Cisco worked closely with Duke and Apple to identify the source of this problem, which was caused by a Cisco-based network issue."
