MIT’s Cheetah 3 blind robot can climb a staircase littered with debris, leap, and gallop across rough terrain

Could be used for exploring disaster zones and other dangerous or inaccessible environments

Discovering new drugs and materials by ‘touching’ molecules in virtual reality

Scientists can now visualize and experiment with structures and dynamics of complex molecular structures (at atomic-level precision), with real-time multi-user collaboration via the cloud

To figure out how to block a bacteria's attempt to create multi-resistance to antibiotics, a researcher grabs a ligand (a binding molecule) that simulates a type of penicillin called benzylpenicillin (red) and interactively guides that molecule to dock within another enzyme (blue-orange) molecule called beta-lactamase, which is produced by bacteria in an attempt to disable the penicillin (by making a patient resistant to a class of antibiotics called β-lactam).

There’s no known upper limit to human longevity, study suggests

New high-precision database of Italians shows risk of death leveling off at age 105

Chiyo Miyako of Japan is the world's oldest verified living person as of June 29, 2018, according to the Gerontology Research Group. She credits eating eel, drinking red wine, and never smoking for her longevity. (credit:  Medical Review Co., Ltd.)

New material eliminates need for motors or actuators in future robots, other devices

Low-cost material could bear 3000 times its own weight, triggered by light or electricity

A “mini arm” made by two hinges of actuating nickel hydroxide-oxyhydroxide material (left) can lift an object 50 times of its weight when triggered (right) by light or electricity. (credit: University of Hong Kong)
