Carnegie Mellon System Lets iPad Users Explore Data with Their Fingers

17 hours ago − Carnegie Mellon University
PITTSBURGH—Spreadsheets may have been the original killer app for personal computers, but data tables don't play to the strengths of multi-touch devices such as tablets. So researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a visualization approach that allows people to explore complex data with their fingers. …

MRI, on a Molecular Scale

4 days ago − Harvard University
For decades, scientists have used techniques like X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMR) to gain invaluable insight into the atomic structure of molecules, but such efforts have long been hampered by the fact that they demand large quantities of a specific molecule and often in ordered and crystalized form to be effective – making it all but impossible to peer into the structure of most molecules. …
