Robotics engineers often find their inspiration from nature. For six-legged robots, a nature-inspired gait proved an impediment to maximum speed.
Scientists invent faster gait for six-legged robots
Scientists at MIT have crafted wearable sensors out of cell-infused hydrogel film. Researchers used the new ‘living material’ to design gloves and bandages that light up when they come in contact with target chemicals.

All inherited diseases and cancers could be cured in the coming decades, according to a leading British expert.
Gene editing could end inherited diseases
A NASA spacecraft has detected carbon-based materials, similar to what may have been the building blocks for life on Earth, on the Texas-sized dwarf planet Ceres that orbits between Mars and Jupiter in the main asteroid belt, scientists said.

New fossil evidence suggested the first species to deploy venom did so 260 million years ago.
Pre-mammalian reptile developed venom 100m years before snakes
A veteran Swiss archeologist has unearthed three temples in Sudan built thousands of years ago, a discovery he says promises to throw new light on Africa's buried ancient past.
