    Public transportation has its own drawbacks: Buses and trains don't start at your home and don't end at your destination, nor do they leave just when you'd like or even guarantee you a seat. To get the best of both worlds, we could teach our cars to work together, as closely grouped cyclists do in a peloton. The lead car could be entrusted to a professional driver to whom the other drivers would o... View full abstract»

    If you're one of the 24 million or so people around the world who purchased a 3-D television in 2011-or the 42 million doing so this year-you might know what it takes to watch 3-D on your home television: a pair of 3-D glasses. But you likely haven't thought much about what it takes to produce the 3-D spectacle that comes to life in your living room. More cameras, or at least more lenses, you migh... View full abstract»

    In September 1967, Richard Klein and his boss, Lawrence Murray, traveled to RCA's central research facility in Princeton, N.J. It was a familiar trip for Klein, an associate engineer at the company's semiconductor division in nearby Somerville, whose work with light-emitting diodes kept him in close touch with solid-state researchers in Princeton. On this occasion, though, Murray assured him he wa... View full abstract»

    The Draper group teamed up with engineers at the Naval Postgraduate School, in Monterey, Calif. And in 2010, we carried out our promise to make the NASA observation satellite scan the sky faster than even its mission controllers thought possible. By operating spacecraft beyond their purported limits, we can extend their life and usefulness without installing new hardware and driving up costs. So h... View full abstract»
