Groovik’s Cube, the giant art-meets-science installation, will premiere at LSC in spring 2014, on the 40th anniversary of the invention of Rubik’s Cube. Liberty Science Center, on the Jersey City bank of the Hudson near the Statue of Liberty, is endeavoring to build Groovik’s Cube — a 1.5-story high Rubik’s Cube that can be controlled
Austin Wierschke, winner of the 6th Annual LG U.S. National Texting Championship How fast can you text? Chances are, not as fast as Austin Wierschke.

The quantum von Neumann machine: Two qubits are coupled to a quantum bus, realizing a quCPU. Each qubit is accompanied by a quantum memory as well as a zeroing register. The quantum memories together with the zeroing register realize the quRAM. Peter Allen, UCSB Physicists at the University of California, Santa Barbara have demonstrated a
Racetrack memory could someday enable a single portable device to store all the movies produced worldwide in a given year and run on a single battery for weeks at a time. IBM Researchers have revealed a previously unknown aspect of key physics inside Racetrack memory — a new technology design which stands to improve memory
An image of an F4 Phantom fighter jet created with the new 3D telepresence system. Can a Holodeck be far behind? University of Arizona Researchers at the University of Arizona, Tucson, have developed a holographic system that can transmit a series of 3D images in near-real-time, a precursor to holographic videoconferencing. The system incorporates a
This filament containing about 30 million carbon nanotubes absorbs energy from the sun as photons and then re-emits photons of lower energy, creating the fluorescence seen here. The red regions indicate highest energy intensity, and green and blue are lower intensity. Geraldine Paulus / MIT Using carbon nanotubes (hollow tubes of carbon atoms), MIT chemical
Sea surface temperatures and sea ice concentrations indicated by two color scales. Scientists can now study climate change in far more detail with powerful new computer software released by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). The Community Earth System Model (CESM) will be one of the primary climate models used for the next assessment
(cc) Tim Samoff Stanford engineers have figured out how to simultaneously use the light and heat of the sun to generate electricity in a way that could make solar power production more than twice as efficient as existing methods and potentially cheap enough to compete with oil. Unlike photovoltaic technology currently used in solar panels
