Each fingertip pressure sensor mounted on this glove is connected to an LED. The intensity of the LEDs varies according to the pressure applied by the fingertips. The glove makes it possible to ascertain degrees of pressure that are difficult to obtain just by examining images. Credit: 2017 Someya Group, The University of Tokyo. A

The new camera was developed for filming chemistry and physics occurring at extreme speeds. Credit: Image courtesy of Lund University Forget high-speed cameras capturing 100,000 images per second. A research group at Lund University in Sweden has developed a camera that can film at a rate equivalent to five trillion images per second, or events

This is the water harvester built at MIT with MOFs from UC Berkeley. Using only sunlight, the harvester can pull liters of water from low-humidity air over a 12-hour period.

Paul J.D. Whiteside demonstrates the sonoillumination waveguide device.

Since then, clinicians and dermatologists have seen a rise in demand for minimally invasive laser-based treatments,

Researchers from the MIT Media Lab developed a new technique that makes image acquisition using compressed sensing 50 times as efficient. In the case of the single-pixel camera, it could get the number of exposures down from thousands to dozens. Examples of this compressive ultrafast imaging technique are show on the bottom rows.
