Multisensory Room Helps Mentally Challenged

High-Pressure Manufacturing Improves Glass for Fiber Optic Cables

Though fiber optic cables have made communication and data transmission even faster than previously possible, it is still subject to physical limitations and data losses. A new study has found a way to reduce signal losses from glass-based fiber optic cables.

Watch This Spider Spin a Web That Makes Tech Designers Envious

Looking to boost the integrity of nanofilaments, important in commercial manufacturing and technology, researchers from Oxford University recently investigated how the filaments are spun in nature. Pulling inspiration from outside in their gardens, the researchers from the UK captured female Uloborus plumipes commonly known as “feather-legged lace weavers” and watched them spin their webs.
