Today, the U.S. is leading the robotics revolution. But without timely investment, China will overtake us, and could permanently put Americans out of work.
Research on molecular machines won last year's Nobel Prize in chemistry. Now scientists have figured out a way to get these tiny molecules to join forces and collaborate on real work on a macro scale.
Mathematicians make a splash with new theory that could lead to breakthroughs in 3D printing, climate science and forensics.
3D printing still exists in a legal grey area. This area is slowly being defined as courts prosecute the first cases but, is current copyright and criminal law keeping up with the technology?
Objects of almost any shape or geometry can be produced by 3D printing. The technology could seriously disrupt not just manufacturing but related national plans for economic development.
3D printed food is already here, but not everyone is convinced it looks edible.
While other industries stride ahead with 3D printing, clothing still has a few hurdles to overcome.
Latest Queensland raids suggest criminals are potentially adopting 3D printers at an industrial scale
An old technique to explore the inside of fossils unfortunately ended up destroying some unique specimens. New technology has been used to reconstruct one such fossil.
Hand over your travel photos and help build digital 3D recreations of threatened heritage sites.
Fashion weeks are becoming less about fashion cliques, and opening up to the masses.
Technology has had a particularly visible impact on the Paralympics. But the the most important thing is to let the athlete's ability come to the fore.
Historical insight is not the only thing that has been raised with the Mary Rose.
We need children to get hold of their fitness levels - literally.
The pioneers of Australian scientific research, education and communication have been recognised in the 2016 Australian Museum Eureka Prizes.
Beyond making guns at home, 3D printing could help countries secretly develop nuclear weapons and terrorists stage more effective attacks. How do we protect innovation and ourselves?
3D printing is opening doors to amazing opportunities and benefits – as well as some undeniable dangers. Patience and caution about regulating it will yield more innovation.
Why carry building materials from Earth into space, when we can build structures by 3D printing using materials found out there?
Work is already underway to repair the damage to the ancient city of Palmyra in Syria, but we need to question if technology will take things too far.
Computer simulation and 3D printing are allowing scientists to develop faster, safer ways to test medical devices without installing them in live humans or animals.
