A prosthetic foot that tackles tough terrain
Hiking trails and other rough terrain are especially difficult for people with prosthetic legs. Now, Stanford engineers have come up with more stable prostheses - and a better way to design them. Taking on a hiking trail or a cobblestone street with a prosthetic leg is a risky proposition - it's possible, but even in relatively easy terrain, people who use prostheses to walk are more likely to fall than others.

Unraveling threads of bizarre hagfish’s explosive slime
As long as a free end gets stuck on something, and some force from moving water or struggling fish pulls in the opposite direction, tiny skeins of thread produced by hagfish can unspool fast enough to make an enormous amount of protective slime. Photo courtesy of Jean-Luc Thiffeault Hundreds of meters deep in the dark of the ocean, a shark glides toward what seems like a meal.

Underwater sensors for monitoring sea life (and where to find them)
Underwater sensors for monitoring sea life (and where to find them)
Harvesting power from the ocean, through spinning underwater turbines or bobbing wave-energy converters, is an emerging frontier in renewable energy. Researchers have been monitoring how these systems will affect fish and other critters that swim by. But with most available technology, scientists can get only occasional glimpses of what's going on below.
