Multi-mobile (M2) Computing System Makes Android and iOS Apps Sharable on Multiple Devices Multi-mobile (M2) Computing System Makes Android and iOS Apps Sharable on Multiple Devices Multi-mobile (M2) Computing System Makes Android and iOS Apps Shar

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Computer scientists at Columbia Engineering have developed a new computing system that enables current, unmodified mobile apps to combine and share multiple devices, including cameras, displays, speakers, microphones, sensors, and GPS, across multiple smartphones and tablets. Called M2, the new system operates across heterogeneous systems, including Android and iOS, combining the functionality of multiple mobile systems into a more powerful one that gives users a seamless experience across the various systems.

Heat kills invasive jumping worm cocoons, could help limit spread

University of Wisconsin-Madison

New research out of the University of Wisconsin–Madison Arboretum shows that temperatures of about 100 degrees Fahrenheit kill the cocoons of invasive jumping worms. That’s good news for ecologists and horticulturalists who are working to slow or stop the spread of the worms, which can damage the soils they invade.
