Watch this quadrotor turn into a trirotor and keep flying

In a video that similar to those videos where humans push around ATLAS, researchers at Delft University of Technology have created a system that will let a quadrotor drone keep flying even if one of t

Watch this robot fly like a real insect

The DelFly is a super light, super agile robot that flies like a real insect. By using a quad-wing flapping system, this odd little bot can flit, hover, and land like a fruit fly. Part of a research p

With one atom per bit, this 1-kilobyte hard drive is only 100 nanometers wide

Here's an interesting milestone to talk up around the water cooler: Researchers in the Netherlands have created a microscopic storage system that encodes every bit with a single atom — allowing them
