Harvesting solar energy just by applying a paint coat on a conductive surface? This may be the answer to the high cost energy bills, I think at least a step towards right direction. A group of researchers at the University of Notre Dame have developed a so-called “solar paint” by using semiconducting nanoparticles to harvest [...]
Cancer Vaccine is a good news for humankind & Stellar Biotechnologies a California based company leading the way to achieve that goal in near future. Researchers use the blood of keyhole limpet’s (Megathura crenulata) to extract Keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) which is the main ingredient of the new cancer vaccine.
At $290,000 a unit these amphibian boats give practical performance & class over their predecessors. With retractable tank treads & splendid shiny design not compromised at up to 40 Knots on the water and 5 Mph on land. As name given Iguana 29, a 29-foot beast is a product of Iguana Yachts.
A research team at University of Washington has developed a electronic contact lens which can display a one pixel as it wearing. These contact lenses are powered wirelessly at very close proximity to eyes.
This new material can emit up to 360 hours of near infrared light by just one minute of sunlight exposure. According to it’s inventors at University of Georgia this material could revolutionise diagnostic medicine, military and law enforcement applications & next-generation solar energy cells
It’s about one hundred times lighter than Styrofoam, with a density of 0.9 mg/cc (Milligram per Cubic Centimeter) and has extraordinarily high energy absorption properties. This is a new type of metal which is 99.9 percent air, as show in the image it can sit on top of a dandelion fluff without crushing it.
Flying power station? Engineers at Makani Power achieved just that, by designing their “Wing 7″ prototype which generate 20 Kw (Kilowatt) just by flying in the sky.
“Noah” is the Japan’s answer to earthquakes & tsunamis, a genius product from a relatively small Japanese company called “Cosmo Power” in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa. It not only can save lives if crushed by collapsing buildings or buried under rubbles, but also can float on water on tsunami or flood situation.
CAFE Green Flight Challenge is funded by NASA & sponsored by google in order to promote green technology and inspire the development of more fuel-efficient air crafts.
Researchers at Spanish National Research Council’s Biotechnology National Centre, a team lead by Dr. Mariano Esteban have successfully tested a HIV Vaccine on a human trial & achived a 90% success rate. Test was a part of phase I testing on HIV non-infected volunteers. With the help of Modified Ankara Vaccinia (MVA) which eradicated smallpox, [...]
This stretchable OLED display is fully metal free and can be stretched up to 45 percent from the original size in linear directions, also can be shrink back to original form.
Remember the “Terminator” movie? Intelligent humanoid robot who trying to save the human race from an apocalyptic event. This robot is not quite advanced as the one in the movie however it’s
A research team led by Professor Pulickel Ajayan at Rice University Houston, Texas has build a complete lithium ion energy storage unit into single nanowire.
Futuristic it may sound, transparent batteries are much closer to reality thanks to a Stanford University research team. Under supervision of Professor Yi Cui, Material Science graduate student
The most innovative addition to sea wave energy harvesting industry, is a planned project by Fraunhofer Center for Manufacturing Innovation in Boston, MA.
