Micro-scallop robots can swim through your blood, eyeballs

November 21st, 2014 at 3:34 pm » Comments Off

A micro-scallop robot is only a fraction of a millimeter in size. Simplicity is important when designing robots on the micro or nano scale (like, small enough to fit inside your body). There just isn’t room for complex motors or actuation systems. There’s barely room for any electronics whatsoever, not to mention batteries, which is […]



New hybrid solar cell battery could solve solar power’s energy storage problem

November 18th, 2014 at 8:51 am » Comments Off

Researchers at Ohio State University have created a new hybrid device that can act both as a solar cell and as a battery storing that energy. Scientists, entrepreneurs and government leaders are pushing to develop cheap, clean energy as the world seeks out alternatives to fossil fuels.



New microscope captures ultra-high-resolution movies of live 3D biomolecules

November 12th, 2014 at 10:45 am » Comments Off

A single HeLa cell in metaphase (during mitosis), imaged by a lattice light sheet microscope. A new imaging platform called a “lattice light sheet” developed by Nobel laureate Eric Betzig and colleagues at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus is a significant leap forward for light microscopy. It captures high-resolution images rapidly and minimizes damage […]



3D printed maps will enable the blind to navigate their city

October 29th, 2014 at 12:54 pm » Comments Off

3D printed map. While modern technology has benefited most of us by turning the things we consume from physical object into pixels on a screen, those with sight difficulties don’t get along well with visual stimuli or touchscreen devices. We have seen Yahoo! Japan develop Hands On Search, a project that lets blind kids carry out […]



World’s thinnest electric generator

October 26th, 2014 at 8:25 am » Comments Off

Electric generator Columbia Engineering and the Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have reported that they have made the first experimental observation of piezoelectricity and the piezotronic effect in an atomically thin material, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), resulting in a unique electric generator and mechanosensation devices that are optically transparent, extremely light, and very bendable and stretchable. […]
