Nick McKeown and his new startup, Barefoot Networks, just launched out of stealth.
A research team demonstrates over 100 patterns of light used in an optical communication link, potentially increasing the bandwidth of communication systems by 100 times.
MY SO-CALLED CYBORG LIFE
It can be kind of hard to keep track of the tangle of emerging computer memory technologies with one seemingly announced every other week, from Intel's highly publicized but still mysterious 3D XPoint technology to organic ferroelectrics. The memory
Quantum bits (qubits) are the building blocks of quantum computers, but putting enough of them together in the one device to run computations like those expected in a standard computer is difficult to say the least.
Take on Endless Electronic Projects with the Tiniest Linux Computer Yet!
Quantum computing is computing at its most esoteric.
Smartphones can pack substantial optical power, at least for their slight forms, so it's no wonder they're a favored way of capturing life's images.
Batteries not included or required
Facebook now builds wireless antennas that can beam Internet signals across cities and well beyond.
The world's hottest startup isn't located in Silicon Valley--it's in suburban Florida. KEVIN KELLY explores what Magic Leap's mind-bending technology tells us about the future of virtual reality.
Computing giant Nvidia has announced the world's first "supercomputer in a box" - the DGX-1.
In the old days, it was common to hear a computer chip referred to as an "electronic brain."
Makers around the world use affordable microcomputers as the digital brain for their hardware projects.
Hey, remember when the FCC reassured us last year that it wasn't going to lock down Wi-Fi routers?
Now Dropbox has cut out the middleman and built its own super servers, challenging the internet's biggest cloud computing companies.
Coming This Year
Incorporating a number of quantum technologies on a single chip, researchers claim that their work paves the way for building quantum computing circuits into a range of everyday devices
Science and technology have always cut with double-edged swords, capable of both propelling humanity to new achievements while threatening us with potential catastrophe.
The Raspberry Pi 3 is 50 percent faster than its predecessor and now includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Here's our first look at these big upgrades for the $35 computer.
Raspberry Pi 3 is imminent -- and the new RPI will include built-in Wi-Fi. A mini computer that has won fans among hardcore techies, avid hobbyists and everyday users, the Raspberry Pi will now make a real push toward widespread adoption as it includ
This is the most ridiculous thing I've built in a long while: a full-size, real-life emoji keyboard, made of 14 keyboards and over 1,000 individually placed stickers. And yet, it's got everything from Unicode 8 -- but not yet the candidates from Unic
The open source operating system is fast becoming an essential building block of business, powering everything from drones and TVs to the infrastructure that tackles the toughest tech challenges.
The mayor of Borgofranco d'Ivrea, a town in Piedmont, has ordered Wi-Fi to be turned off in two schools over health fears.
If you want to piss off an electrical engineer, tell them that future electronics might be built using a room-temperature metallic glue instead of conventional soldering techniques. Despite the tedium, burns, bad joins, and dangerous lead fumes, sold
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--The official first day of the CES is today.
And it doesn't always need wi-fi. More than 4 billion people in the world can't read this article. That's not necessarily because they can't read, although illiteracy is an issue affecting nearly 10 percent of the world's population, but beca
Virtual reality has a very real problem. With several technology giants preparing splashy introductions for the first VR headsets in 2016, few people own hardware capable of fully supporting Facebook's Oculus Rift or other systems.
Next-gen Servo project more fully exploits modern multicore hardware, but don't expect it to replace Firefox any time soon
