Oculus Rift delays flatten virtual-reality fan fervor - Virtual reality, oddly enough, isn't immune to the problems that arise in practical reality. Just ask would-be fans of the Oculus Rift headset, many—possibly most—of whom are still waiting for their $600 gadgets more than four weeks after they started shipping .

Well that is two sentences I dare anybody to read fast whilst drunk.

But 4 week delay given how long they have been on the verge of release is a drop in the ocean.

Light-powered 3-D printer creates terahertz lens - From visible light to radio waves, most people are familiar with the different sections of the electromagnetic spectrum. But one wavelength is often forgotten, little understood, and, until recently, rarely studied. It's called terahertz, and it has important applications in imaging and communications.

When is an error not an error, when its annealed and with that is not all quantum data correct and equally in error until read!

Higher coal use in Asia could increase water stress - Coal burning, despite recent signs of having peaked in China and pledges made at the Paris Climate talks in December, remains the primary source of electric power in Asia. In both China and India, it's responsible for the lion's share of human-made sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, which drive up concentrations of sulfate aerosols in the atmosphere. These aerosols not only endanger public health in the region but also contribute to local a...

Cooling graphene-based film close to pilot-scale production - Heat dissipation in electronics and optoelectronics is a severe bottleneck in the further development of systems in these fields. To come to grips with this serious issue, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed an efficient way of cooling electronics by using functionalized graphene nanoflakes. The results will be published in the renowned journal Nature Communications.

Exploring phosphorene, a promising new material - Two-dimensional phosphane, a material known as phosphorene, has potential application as a material for semiconducting transistors in ever faster and more powerful computers. But there's a hitch. Many of the useful properties of this material, like its ability to conduct electrons, are anisotropic, meaning they vary depending on the orientation of the crystal. Now, a team including researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) has de...

Pop went the weasel and down went the Large Hadron Collider - It's one of the physics world's most complex machines, and it has been immobilized—temporarily—by a weasel.

A tiny switch for a few particles of light - The Jedi knights of the Star Wars saga are engaged in an impossible fight. This does not result from the superiority of the enemy empire, but from physics because laser swords cannot be used for fighting like metallic blades: beams of light don't feel each other. Until now, for a light beam to perceive another one, it has required a large chunk of material as intermediary, and very intense light. A team at the Max Planck Institute for the Science...

Personal cooling units on the horizon - Firefighters entering burning buildings, athletes competing in the broiling sun and workers in foundries may eventually be able to carry their own, lightweight cooling units with them, thanks to a nanowire array that cools, according to Penn State materials researchers.
