Plug-ins for the brain

Scientists are on the hunt for spare parts for our damaged or faltering brains. But is that a future we want?

A bright future – with algae

Algae shells are perfectly constructed to exploit sunlight. These materials may provide efficient and cheap solar cells.

Feed your genes

The genes have spoken: your dinner plate should be divided into three, and you should eat six times a day.

Tears? Forget them!

The first steps have been taken towards rainwear which repairs itself.

Watch out – moose!

An vehicle-based computer alert system that warns of moose on the road causes motorists to react quickly. Roadside warning signs just don’t have the same effect.

Vital channels

These little tubes are in a laboratory at SINTEF Sealab. […]

Gene therapy for ears

Gene therapy may someday in the future replace the use of implants in deaf people. The carrier for this gene medicine may be derived from shrimp shells.

Ocean prophets

These scientists can predict the direction an oil spill will take, or if salmon lice will infect a neighbouring fish farm.

Into the mist

About 40 million people worldwide have dementia, and many more will continue to be diagnosed in the future. How should society meet this challenge?

Digital care

If a car tilts, a sensor beeps, and our mobile phones alert us when the battery gets too low. But who gets notified if grandma falls? Or who checks her blood pressure daily?

See me! Feel me! Touch me!

What exactly happens when we send an SMS or enlarge or shrink images on a mobile screen? And why doesn’t it work if we wear gloves?

A new vessel for the Arctic

A new kind of vessel is being specially designed to tolerate the tough, frigid conditions in the Arctic.

Is artificial turf better than we think?

DOCTORAL WORK – David McGhie: Friction and shock absorption in artificial turf – what are the most important factors in the choice of artificial turf and soccer/football boots?

The archbishop’s mint

The medieval coin workshop found in Trondheim is the world’s best preserved. Now scientists have reconstructed the entire coin-making process.

A most unusual cancer patient

One of humankind’s genetic cousins is baker’s yeast. That makes this humble yeast a perfect guinea pig for cancer research.

The thin film

Plant photosynthesis depends on membranes, and human beings would be unable to hear without the eardrum. Could yet another membrane help rescue us from a climatic catastrophe?

Looks to Norway

For years, the whole world has looked up to the Japanese industry. Now, Toyota wants to learn about evaluating team organization from Norwegian researchers.

Explosive chemistry in the night sky

How can you cram trickling sprays of gold and a rotating flaming wheel into a little tiny tube – and much later, set it loose to explode in the sky?
