Imagine a soldier who can change the color and pattern of his camouflage uniform from woodland green to desert tan at will. Or an office worker who could do the same with his necktie. Is someone at th...
A pioneering new technique to produce high-quality, low cost graphene could pave the way for the development of the first truly flexible 'electronic skin', that could be used in robots.
Remote-Controlled Eradication of Astrogliosis in Spinal Cord Injury via Electromagnetically-induced Dexamethasone Release from "Smart" Nanowires Wen Gao and Richard Borgens We describe a system...
Researchers at MIT developed a new ultralow-power circuit that improves efficiency of energy harvesting to more than 80 percent. This can lead the way to tiny, solar-powered sensors. The latest buzz in the information technology industry regards “the Internet of things” — the idea that vehicles, appliances, civil-engineering structures, manufacturing equipment, and even livestock would […] The post More Than 80% Efficiency Attained in New Ultralow-power Circuit appeared first on SciTech Daily.
