Flexible batteries

It’s no secret, batteries are usually heavy, bulky and made of metal and other dangerous chemicals. With most electric devices, the battery  is generally a large portion of the devices weight. Scientists at the New Jersey Institute of Technology have joined the ranks of  Stanford University and LG, in creating prototype flexible batteries made from plastic that

When physicians run out of treatment options, they look to an emerging field known as bioengineering for solutions to their patients’ ailments. Specialized scientists apply engineering principles to biological systems, opening up the possibility of creating new human tissue, organs, blood and even visual corneas. Waiting lists for organ transplants continue to be lengthy so

  Heather Dewey-Hagborg, a research scientist at Univeristy of New York, has come up with something that is kind of creepy, but could help identify victims of crimes and other situations where identification of an unknown person is necessary. While riding home on the subway, she noticed various items left behind from passengers, gum, cigarette

  Designed by Macedonian designer Slavche Tanevski for the year 2030, the Mercedes-Benz electric luxury concept Aria, draws inspiration from the grace & beauty of  the  swan.  The Aria’s character is also inspired by the fluidity of the female anatomy, and the meticulous craftsmanship of the violin.     The use of copper and aluminum on the

    This  small talking robot built in Japan is about to take one giant leap into space.

Today is Juneteenth, the celebration of the Emancipation Proclamation and the official end of slavery in the United States. On this day, I wanted to acknowledge the past, and also look at two African Americans that are taking us into the future. Charles F. Bolden, and Victor J. Glover, are two men who display all

  Science fiction has always envisioned a real life molecular creation tool. A device that could create objects (like food) on a cellular level, and they appear. By adding a special resin, carbon, light, and water, University of Tokyo Scientists were able to create  an object on a cellular level using a 3D printer like

  No flash? No problem. A new imaging sensor could soon make it possible for photographers to take clear, sharp photos, even in dim lighting. Created by a team of researchers at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore, the new sensor is highly sensitive to both visible and infrared light, which means it could be
