Plants have an incredible knack for greening and flowering in sync with the seasons. We’ve been trying to figure out how they do it for years, and scientists have now uncovered evidence that memory is involved.


Are Photographic Memories Real, And Could You Have One?

There are people out there who can remember almost every detail of what they did on a random day ten years ago. But is it possible to have an actual photographic memory, whether developed by nature or nurture? Here’s the truth.


Seagate's New 10GBps SSD Will Be The World's Fastest

Seagate’s new SSD will be very, very fast indeed. In fact, able to transfer data at up to 10GBps, it’s 6GBps faster than its previous best — and it’s claimed it will be the fastest in the world.


New SD Cards Will Support 360, 3D And 8K Video At Up To 90MBps

It will soon be time to toss out your dusty old memory cards. The SD Association has announced that the next generation of cards will support 360 degree, 3D and 8K video, all at write speeds of up to an amazing 90MB per second.


No, Scientists Have Not Created A Matrix-Like Interface That Instantly Uploads Data To Your Brain

Remember that mind-blowing scene in The Matrix when Neo had jiu-jitsu and kung fu uploaded directly into his brain? Researchers from HRL Laboratories are now saying they have developed a similar device that “teaches” pilots new skills. Too bad it’s bullshit.


Your Next Phone Might Have 256GB Of Storage Thanks To Samsung's New Chip

I love high capacity things. So when Samsung announced that it’s producing 256 GB flash storage that can be used in mobile devices, I swooned. The memory is two times faster than the previous generation of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) memory, meaning that phones will not only have greater storage capacities, but also breeze reading and writing operations.


Scientists Use Light To Alter Memories Of Cokehead Mice

Researchers from the University of Oxford have rewritten positive memories associated with cocaine in mice. The achievement could expand our understanding of memory, while demonstrating that it is possible to neurologically reverse ingrained bad behaviour, such as drug addiction.


How 'Memory Hacking' Is Becoming A Reality

Movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Inception suggest it may eventually be possible to erase, modify or even implant memories into your brain. An upcoming episode of American science show NOVA introduces viewers to this futuristic possibility and the scientists who are trying to make it happen.


Our Brains Can Store 10 Times More Information Than We Thought

New research shows the brain’s memory capacity is ten times greater than previous estimates. That means it’s in the petabyte range — which puts it close to World Wide Web territory.


This New Deep Learning Tool Shows You The Most Memorable Parts Of Your Photos
