MIT researchers answer a longstanding question in biology: How do cells know when to progress through the cell cycle?
Three prototype devices from CSAIL using a new technology that could make it possible for the average person to design, customize and print a specialized robot in a matter of hours.
An iron bar is used to try to pick up some paperclips or thumbtacks. It is not able to do this because it is not magnetized. The rod is placed in a long solenoid and DC power applied. The rod becomes magnetized and is able to pick up some of the paperclips or tacks. ...
A bimetallic strip (12" ) of iron and aluminum is vertically fixed at one end to a board. The top end has a pointer that is free to move. The bimetallic strip is straight at room temperature. When heated with a blow torch, the strip curves due to differential expansion.
Helium introduced into a resonant cavity, including the lungs of the demonstrator, will increase the frequency of all pitches originating in the cavity.
A beam of light from a helium-neon laser is directed at a tank of water and is refracted as it enters the water. The outgoing angle of refraction is smaller than the incident angle. Next, the laser is directed from below the water's surface. At a ...
A slinky is stretched out on a glass rod and connected to 120 VAC. When power is applied, the slinky immediately collapses due to Lenz's Law.
Researchers in MIT's Robot Locomotion Group have built a computer-controlled aircraft that flies accurately enough to navigate safely through a gap smaller than its wingspan.
