Urban seismic network detects human sounds
When listening to the Earth, what clues can seismic data reveal about the impact of urban life? Although naturally occurring vibrations have proven useful to seismologists, until now the vibrations caused by humans haven’t been explored in any real depth. Researchers have described their efforts to tap into an urban seismic network to monitor the traffic of trains, planes, automobiles and other modes of human transport.

Griffith scientists propose existence and interaction of parallel worlds
(Griffith University) Griffith University academics are challenging the foundations of quantum science with a radical new theory on parallel universes.In a paper published in the journal Physical Review X, Professor Howard Wiseman and Dr. Michael Hall from Griffith's Centre for Quantum Dynamics, and Dr. Dirk-Andre Deckert from the University of California, propose that parallel universes really exist, and that they interact. They show that such an interaction could explain everything that is bizarre about quantum mechanics

Through 3D-printed prosthetic, Illinois students lending a hand in Ecuador
(University of Illinois College of Engineering) The group of students from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created one of the first 3D-printed prosthetic hands with pattern recognition capability. A machine-learning algorithm allows it to do more than just open and close, and it can be created for a mere $270 -- good news for those who are most in need, residents of the developing world.
