National Science Foundation With a few flicks of a light switch--on-off-on-off--Stanford University's Oscar Abilez is one step closer to changing the lives of millions. Why? Because as a focused speck of light turns on and off in Abilez's lab, a cluster of heart cells begins to expand and contract. He demonstrates that he can control the rhythm of a heart using just light. Currently, 4 million Americans suffer from some degree of cardiac arrhythmia, wherein a person's heart beats too...

A black box can referred to as almost anything from a transistor to an algorithm to a human mind. The black box is a device, system, or object which can be view in terms of its input, output, and transfer characteristics without any knowledge of its internal workings. The opposite is a system where the inner components or logic are available for inspection which is sometimes known as a white box, a glass box, or a clear box. The term "black box" came into the English language around 1945....
