"Driving Toward Crashless Cars": Next-generation automotive safety technology could give us vehicles that are difficult to crash - and eventually may not need drivers at all. "Can Phishing Be Foiled?": Understanding the human factors that make people vulnerable to online criminals can improve security training and technology. "A New Molecule of Life?": Peptide nucleic acid, the synthetic hybrid of protein and DNA, that could form the basis of a new class of drugs - and of artificial life unlike anything found in nature. "Magic and the Brain": The neurological findings behind the techniques magicians use to fool the mind and perform their seemingly magic tricks.
