Seeing the sea in 4D with Ocean Explorer
What if we could take an MRI of the ocean and explore it in virtual reality? We’re prototyping tools to bring greater resolution to the study of the world's oceans.
Reality check: digital twin tech to transform manufacturing
Our Mixed Reality Lab enables manufacturers to create 'digital twins', or virtual replicas of physical objects and systems. This will allow them to identify defective components that can be identified and corrected in real-time.
Moonwalking students from the Mallee (and more!)
There are kids moonwalking in the Mallee, and designing a garden for Mars. There are students making robots in Central Australia. All of these students are visited by our superstar STEM volunteers.
Weevils in amber reveal ancient ecosystems
100 million-year-old weevils trapped in amber are helping piece together earth’s ecological past.
Interronauts | Episode 11: Eggs to live birth — how pregnancy evolved, Alzheimer’s link with iron deposits, bonobos don’t overimitate, and Cassini’s grand finale
This fortnight Jesse and Sophie chat about breaking news from Yale on the evolution of pregnancy in marsupials and eutherians (ourselves), childhood learning in apes (bonobos' inability to copy silly stuff), a chat with Dr Olivier Salvado about iron deposits' relationship with Alzheimer's, and finally the living funeral of NASA's Cassini.
Where there’s smoke there’s fire: early cancer detection through fine-print mapping of blood vessel growth
Our new algorithm maps new blood vessel growth with more fidelity to quickly zero in on early-stage cancers.
Welcome to the ‘dark side’ of the proteome
Working with the Garvan Institute, we're doing the most in-depth study of unknown proteins - the 'dark proteome' - using our 3D modelling tool, Aquaria.
Art from every angle: the GLAM 3D transformation
Tired of seeing museum artefacts from behind the glass and out of reach? We’ve joined forces with the National Gallery of Australia to let visitors interact with the artefacts currently on show in the Myth + Magic: Art of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea exhibition.
Data, data everywhere so let’s have a think
The hackers have had their way with our data - in the best possible way. Here's what the teams at GovHack 2015 did with our data.
Extreme makeover for surgical implants
We’ve partnered with Australian medical devices company Anatomics to develop better surgical implants, helping patients recovering from trauma and other debilitating medical conditions.
Walking With Dinosaurs: science recreates ancient past
130 million year old dinosaur prints, drones, lidar, low-flying aircrafts, and one awesome project to understand and preserve a spectacular Australian treasure.
