Biochip array to identify biological materials

Scientists from the University of Maryland and Towson University announced their development of an invisibility cloak array. They have crammed 25,000 tiny “invisibility cloaks” onto a gold sheet, which itself only measures 25 mm per side, resulting a biochip array that could allow them to identify biological materials. The researchers began with a commercially-available micro-lens […]

Energy waves hidden by Schrodinger Hat in an invisible container

The graphic shows a matter wave hitting a Schrodinger’s hat. The wave inside the container is magnified. Outside, the energy waves wrap as if they had never encountered any obstacle. (Gunther Uhlmann/University of Washington) A new system has been theorized by an international team of mathematicians that could conceal matter in the form of energy […]

Synergy aircraft the US versatile solution for personal flight

The aircraft as invention had a greatest impact in connecting people and shortening long distances between them. In terms of improvement remains enough to do and following this idea, a team of US designers developed a better solution for flying their Synergy aircraft. John McGinnis, the lead designer claim that Synergy aircraft has more room […]

Mozambique has a world’s first biofuel plant

A biofuel plant designed to produce sustainable cooking fuels was opened in Dondo, Mozambique as the world’s first. The biofuel plant called CleanStar Mozambique (CSM) is a cornerstone of a multi tiered venture which will buy cassava from local farmers and refine it into ethanol. Then the ethanol will be distributed as cooking fuel in […]
