New drone dives like a bird and leaps like a flying fish
Engineers have developed a prototype drone that dives like a gannet and launches like a flying fish, to collect water samples. Gannets (left) are the largest seabirds in the north Atlantic and hunt fish by diving from height into the sea at up to 60 miles per hour. Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of the water and into the sky, where their wing-like fins help them to glide over considerable distances.

Scientists create a patch to bypass scars caused by a heart attack
Scientists have successfully created a material designed to bridge the gap in the heart's electrical signals caused by a heart attack. The international collaboration involving Imperial College London and the University of New South Wales was co-funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) . For people who have suffered a heart attack and have heart failure arrhythmias are a common and very serious problem, which this patch has the potential to help with.

Toddler robots help solve how children learn
Toddler robots help solve how children learn
Children learn new words using the same method as robots according to psychologists. This suggests that early learning is based not on conscious thought but on an automatic ability to associate objects which enables babies to quickly make sense of their environment. Dr Katie Twomey from Lancaster University, with Dr Jessica Horst from Sussex University, Dr Anthony Morse and Professor Angelo Cangelosi from Plymouth wanted to find out how young children learn new words for the first time.
