10:44 PM | Interns Summer in Review, Part 3: What’s an Imaging Science student doing at NEON?
NEON is quite the unexpected place for an Imaging Science student to do an internship. NEON is all about Ecology, so where am I supposed to fit in here? My internship is in FIU, which is the Fundamental Instrumentation Unit. FIU is a science department whose purpose is to facilitate the instrument-based collection of abiotic … Continue reading »

Believe it or not, this is a radio that is roughly the size of a small ant. Researchers at ucberkeley and Stanford have developed this device that uses so little electricity that the data it transmits can actually power the device itself. The tiny radios would pass along information like a tiny, wireless bucket brigade. Read more about this tiny device →

2:01 PM | I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.
Robert Platt from Northwestern has used a new technology created by Edward Adelson from MIT to make a robot that plugs in USBs. This is more difficult than it sounds (unless you’ve had experience with fourth-dimensional USBs, then it’s exactly as difficult as it sounds). If the robot is not pre-programmed, like these on-the-fly USB pluggers, […]

10:25 PM | This Guy Just Became the First Person to Explore the Largest Beaver Dam in the World
Deep in the woods of northern Alberta, Canada, lies an engineering masterpiece. But this is not man-made structure, it’s a 2,788-foot beaver dam, so big that it can actually be seen from space. The dam, first discovered in a series of satellite images in 2007, is buried deep in the forests of Wood Mountain National Park, and was thought to be inaccessible to humans. But for amateur explorer Rob Mark, that sounded like a challenge: “There was a reoccurring theme that it
