New Magnetic Graphene could revolutionize electronics

  Researchers from IMDEA-Nanociencia Institute and from Autonoma and Complutense Universities of Madrid (Spain) have managed to give graphene magnetic properties. The breakthrough, published in the journal ‘Nature Physics‘, opens the door to the development of graphene-based spintronic devices, that is, devices based on the spin or rotation of the electron, and could transform the […]

Wales’ first full-scale Tidal Generator

Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones announced last week at the Renewable UK Cymru conference in Cardiff that Wales’ first full-scale tidal energy generator has been awarded a £1.6 million EU grant to find its deployment in Ramsey Sound, Pembrokeshire. The funding comes from the European Regional Development Fund has been provided to Cardiff-based Tidal Energy Ltd for its DeltaStream […]

Shape-Shifting Mobile Devices

Prototype mobile devices that can change shape on-demand will be unveiled today, Monday 29 April, and could lay down the foundation for creating high shape resolution devices of the future.

New strain of E. Coli Bacteria produces… Diesel on demand

It sounds like science fiction but a team from the University of Exeter, with support from Shell, has developed a method to make bacteria produce diesel on demand. While the technology still faces many significant commercialisation challenges, the diesel, produced by special strains of E. coli bacteria, is almost identical to conventional diesel fuel and […]

Wonder Nanomaterial produces energy, clean water and hydrogen

Researchers in Singapore have developed a new nanomaterial that functions like the best Swiss army knife in the world.

‘Artificial Leaf’ now able to self-heal, produce energy from dirty water

Another innovative feature has been added to the world’s first practical “artificial leaf,” making the device even more suitable for providing people in developing countries and remote areas with electricity, scientists reported in New Orleans on April 8. It gives the leaf the ability to self-heal damage that occurs during production of energy.

‘Heat Mirror’ insulating glass exceeds Energy Star standards for 2013

Southwall Technologies, Inc., an innovator of high performance, energy-saving films and glass products, announced recently that windows using the company’s energy-efficient Heat Mirror insulating glass already meet and exceed the new US Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Star window performance standards proposed for 2013. “As evidenced by Southwall’s recently announced joint venture, Southwall Insulating Glass, […]

Audio can now be targeted directly at your ears

A new audio technology uses two high frequency wavelengths at low power to pinpoint an audio signal at a precise location. When the two sound waves meet, they produce the sound. The technology could be used for projecting music to a specific spot in a room. When you walk within range of the signal, the audio sounds […]

Building a 2,073-foot skyscraper

When it opens in 2014, the Shanghai Tower won’t just be the world’s second-tallest building. The 2,073-foot-high skyscraper, designed by the architecture firm Gensler, will be a showcase of 21st-century engineering, introducing the innovations that could become standard in the next generation of supertall towers.   LAYERED STRUCTURE The building relies on three interlocking systems […]
