Throughout history, the pursuit of technology to help us work harder, faster and more safely has led to some truly incredible inventions that have changed the world we live in — from the ancient tools first used by our ancestors to 21st-century breakthroughs such as bionic eyes and artificial intelligence. Our expert writers and editors address the groundbreaking developments in robotics, quantum computing and much more with the latest future technology news, articles and features.
A new technique in quantum storage that operates at room temperature could pave the way for a quantum internet.
Say goodbye to earbuds that break down and create fuzz. New ultrasonic audio chip could lead to digital headphones with better noise-cancelling and spatial audio.
Qubits are normally made from superconducting metals and need to be cooled to near absolute zero to avoid collapsing. But scientists just built an error-free "logical qubit" from a single laser pulse — and it works at room temperature.
AI chatbots can't remember things well. However, scientists might have fixed AI's critical short-term memory issue, while OpenAI is also beginning to roll out long-term memory for ChatGPT.
Boston Dynamics has released footage showing how its flagship Atlas humanoid robot would cope in a factory environment as it lifts heavy struts and puts them into a flow cart.
Two of the three last-known surviving Q1 microcomputers have resurfaced after they were last known to have been used by an oil drilling company in the 1970s.
In a new video, 1X's EVE robots work together in silence in a test environment, performing actions such as sorting mail, handling objects and tidying up a child's toys.
By using gel, researchers have found a way to incorporate silicon into batteries while negating its destructive tendency to expand — meaning future EVs could use the technology to go much further on a single charge.
