Printing metal in midair. 3D Printing and Laser Annealing of conductive metallic inks

“Flat” and “rigid” are terms typically used to describe electronic devices. But the increasing demand for flexible, wearable electronics, sensors, antennas and biomedical devices has led a team at Harvard’s Wyss Institute to innovate an eye-popping new way of printing complex metallic architectures – as though they are seemingly suspended in midair. This laser-assisted direct … Continue reading “Printing metal in midair. 3D Printing and Laser Annealing of conductive metallic inks”

Hyperloop One did Propulsion Open Air Test for the Super Speed Transportation System

Hyperloop, the supersonic transport system proposed by Elon Musk, has taken a small step towards reality with the first public test of a prototype propulsion system. A company named “Hyperloop One” which was previously known as “Hyperloop Technologies” successfully did an open-air propulsion test in the Nevada desert. With the Hyperloop, passengers could travel from … Continue reading “Hyperloop One did Propulsion Open Air Test for the Super Speed Transportation System”

Paper gets ‘smart’ with drawn-on, stenciled sensor tags

A piece of paper is one of the most common, versatile daily items. Children use it to draw their favorite animals and practice writing the A-B-Cs, and adults print reports or scribble a hasty grocery list. Now, connecting real-world items such as a paper airplane or a classroom survey form to the larger Internet of … Continue reading “Paper gets ‘smart’ with drawn-on, stenciled sensor tags”

MIT’s Invisible “Second Skin” XPL Cream Makes Wrinkles Disappear

Scientists at MIT, Massachusetts General Hospital, Living Proof, and Olivo Labs have developed a new material that can temporarily protect and tighten skin, and smooth wrinkles. With further development, it could also be used to deliver drugs to help treat skin conditions such as eczema and other types of dermatitis. The material, a silicone-based polymer … Continue reading “MIT’s Invisible “Second Skin” XPL Cream Makes Wrinkles Disappear”
