Scientists invented a real-life flux capacitor, but not for time travel

If you watched Back to the Future over the holiday weekend and wished the flux capacitor was a real thing so you could travel through time, we have sorta good news. Scientists from Australia and Switzerland have proposed a real-life flux capacitor –… Source: Engadget | Scientists invented a real-life flux capacitor, but not for …

NASA will create coldest place in the universe to study quantum physics

It's hard to study quantum behavior on Earth. You can amplify the effects of quantum mechanics by zapping groups of specific atoms (Bose-Einstein condensates) with lasers that drop their temperature to near absolute zero, but that only works for frac… Source: Engadget

IBM is installing a Watson AI lab at MIT

Both MIT and IBM are leaders in the field of Artificial Intelligence and now they're teaming up. IBM announced on Thursday that it had reached a 10-year research partnership agreement with the university worth nearly a quarter of a billion dollars. T… Source: Engadget

'Flip-flop' design makes quantum computers more affordable

One of the greatest challenges in quantum computing is… well, making the computers. You may need exotic manufacturing techniques just to handle the very exacting requirements, such as positioning the atoms in quantum bits in exact positions at clos… Source: Engadget
