For people who are blind or visually impaired, finding the right products in a crowded grocery store can be difficult without help. A team of computer scientists at CU Boulder is trying to change that.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology laboratories have housed atomic clocks for decades—including the cesium atomic clock NIST-F1, which serves as the primary time and frequency standard in the U.S. Researchers continue to improve the clocks' accuracies, a process that sometimes has included rebuilding parts.
Germophobes, brace yourselves. A team of CU Boulder engineers has revealed how tiny water droplets, invisible to the naked eye, are rapidly ejected into the air when a public restroom toilet is flushed. The research also provides a methodology to help reduce this exposure risk.
Robots help build cars, fly planes, fight wars and provide health care; they play a role in countless industries, but for the most part, they don't work in chemistry labs. A team of CU Boulder scientists plans to change that.
Vitro3D, a startup founded by CU Boulder doctoral students, just closed its first investment round of $1.3 million. The venture involves novel, high-speed volumetric 3D printing technology with potential applications in industries such as dental, medical and drug development.
