DIY kit makes building robots easy

A new do-it-yourself kit makes it much easier to build robots. The kit will help researchers develop and refine human-like walking robots, say the inventors.

Hand prosthesis with a sense of touch

A new hand prosthesis enables an amputee to feel a handshake for the first time in years. A quantum leap in prosthesis research, says scientist.

A 3D-printed running shoe that regenerates itself

A running shoe that can regenerate itself overnight, and is printed in 3D to fit your foot perfectly. That is the vision of a British design project with Danish participation.

Where do we look when driving around a corner?

Using the latest eye-tracking technology and vehicle telemetry, a Finnish researcher has investigated the visual behaviour of driving a car through curves.

Wresting more power from wind turbines

Offshore floating wind farms require some highly advanced and novel controls to be both long-lasting and productive.

New atom accelerator at Aarhus University

A new, highly advanced atom accelerator has just arrived at Aarhus University, Denmark. The new technology will be used on everything from dating human bones to charting the history of the Sun.

A new path towards quantum computers

The supercomputer of the future operates with quantum bits, but quantum systems are fragile and they degrade easily. Now Danish scientists have managed to turn this degradation into an advantage, making it easier to create the special quantum states required for a quantum computer.

Red figures for Oslo - Stockholm fast train

The bottom line figures flash as red as a stoplight when using a new method of calculating the profitability of a prospective high-speed rail between the Norwegian and Swedish capitals.

Time-lapse incubator identifies healthiest eggs

New video monitoring technology allows doctors to monitor artificially fertilised eggs before they are inserted into the uterus. The technology has been used successfully abroad and can help doctors identify the best eggs for incubation.

Singing water reveals itself

With a rapidly growing world population, clean drinking water has become a scarce resource. Using new technology that traces sound signals, Danish scientists hope to find groundwater in densely populated areas.

How childplay inspired new artificial brain

We can throw and catch a ball because our brain uses patterns to recognise situations and react to them. This form of pattern recognition is now being used to develop an artificial brain, which in record time can simulate buildings and produce a fatigue life estimation.

Apps open new urban dimensions

Architecture is more than building design. The project YoUrban uses digital technology to reveal layer upon layer of action, interaction and future visions.
