MIT startup brings nonstick coating “LiquiGlide” to consumer goods packaging

The days of wasting condiments — and other products — that stick stubbornly to the sides of their bottles may be gone, thanks to MIT spinout LiquiGlide, which has licensed its nonstick coating to a major consumer-goods company. Norwegian consumer-goods producer Orkla has signed a licensing agreement to use the MIT’s LiquiGlide’s coating for mayonnaise products … Continue reading “MIT startup brings nonstick coating “LiquiGlide” to consumer goods packaging”

New nanogenerator harvests power from the car’s rolling tires with better fuel efficiency

A group of engineers have developed a nanogenerator that harvests energy from a car’s rolling tire friction, which may improve the fuel efficiency or the cruising ability of electric vehicles. An innovative method of reusing energy, the nanogenerator ultimately could provide automobile manufacturers a new way to squeeze greater efficiency out of their vehicles. The … Continue reading “New nanogenerator harvests power from the car’s rolling tires with better fuel efficiency”

MIT’s automatic bug repairing without access to source code

At the Association for Computing Machinery’s Programming Language Design and Implementation conference this month, MIT researchers presented a new system that repairs dangerous software bugs by automatically importing functionality from other, more secure applications. Remarkably, the system, dubbed CodePhage, doesn’t require access to the source code of the applications whose functionality it’s borrowing. Instead, it … Continue reading “MIT’s automatic bug repairing without access to source code”

Samsung Electronics have announced that it has developed a new technology to improve lithium ion battery capacity. They have developed a next generation lithium-ion battery technology which they use a silicon anode; additionally they added thin layers of graphene over the silicon surface to improve the smartphone’s battery life better. The research is published in … Continue reading “Samsung’s new technology could improve your smartphone’s battery life”

New study increases the data transmission rates in Optical fiber

Researchers at the University of California have successfully deciphered information in lab experiments after it travelled a record-breaking 12,000 kilometers through fiber optic cables with standard amplifiers and no repeaters, which are electronic regenerators. This increased maximum power and distance at which optical signals can be sent through optical fibers, has the potential to increase … Continue reading “New study increases the data transmission rates in Optical fiber”
