Self-Organizing, Termite-Like Robots Could Aid Construction Efforts

Self-Organizing, Termite-Like Robots Could Aid Construction Efforts

A team of computer scientists have recently developed termite-inspired robots, capable of autonomous construction. Engineers and researchers working at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have developed a cluster of robust robots that are able to manipulate their environment, without supervision or any form […]

Live Birth of Ancient Marine Reptile Found Perfectly Fossilized

Live Birth of Ancient Marine Reptile Found Perfectly Fossilized

A recently unearthed fossil has captured the moment an ichthyosaur – an ancient marine reptile – gave birth. The researchers involved in the latest study claim the remains show the earliest live birth, from an ancient Mosozoic marine reptile, perfectly preserved as a 248 million-year-old fossil collected from China. The study was published in the […]

New Fossil Evidence of Romundina Fish Explains Origins of the Human Face?

New Fossil Evidence of Romundina Fish Explains Origins of the Human Face?

  A group of French and Swedish researchers believe they have evidence that could explain the origins of the human face. Using special imaging techniques, the team have conducted a thorough investigation of fossilized specimen that belonged to armored fish, called Romundina, that swam the oceans some 410 million years ago. The latest study was […]
