Printed solar cells to produce green electricity

Solar power has declined dramatically its cost over the past decades. We could say that was a decrease from $40 per watt in 1978 to $0.42 per watt in 2015. In the next three years the cost of production for conventional crystalline silicon solar panel could attend more than 30 percent less. The important players […]

Toyota Camatte a Japanese Concept Car

During the International Tokyo Toy Show 2012 this June, Toyota has released a new concept vehicle called Toyota Camatte. This concept car looks like a toy, cute and compact to give fun driving for children and parents. Camatte offers two models: Camatte Sora and Camatte Daichi. Toyota Camatte features customizable body easily to remove and […]

Electrically conductive gel – now printable

Researchers from Stanford University have invented an electrically conductive gel, quick and easy to make, which can be applied onto a surface with an inkjet printer. The two Stanford associate professors Zhenan Bao and Yi Cui with team created the material of this electrically conductive gel, a jelly that feels and behaves like biological tissue […]

Researchers send “Wireless” message using a beam of neutrinos

A group of scientists led by researchers from the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have for the first time sent a message using a beam of neutrinos – nearly massless particles that travel at almost the speed of light. The message was sent through 240 meters of stone and said simply, “Neutrino.”

Korean technology to develop a new piezoelectric nanogenerator

Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology has developed a new piezoelectric nanogenerator, low cost and scale self powered energy system. As well know piezoelectric materials can convert vibration and mechanical forces into an electric current. This property has been used to create better microphone transducers and recently to harvest energy from shoes, clothing or […]

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 […]
