Turning Ordinary Glass Surfaces into Solar by MSU. A Michigan State University research team has developed a transparent solar panel capable of capturing solar energy. Professor Richard Lunt, MSU assistant professor who headed the research, believes that the panel can be employed in a wide variety of settings.
3D printing: Amazing Innovation inspired by Terminator 2
Joseph DeSimone and the other University of North Carolina scientists who describe the technology in a new paper published today in Science call it "continuous liquid interface production."This new 3D printing technology by Carbon 3d looks like science fiction. But it's entirely real. Carbon3D has invented a new way of 3-D printing using liquid resins that harden on contact with UV light. This process is 25-100 times faster than current methods and stronger since the object is one solid shape instead of composite layers.
The world's ocean waves hold as much as 10 trillion watts, and engineers and scientists trying to find the best ways to get the incredible resource that's washing up on our shores every day.
Watch Google delivery drone video, Australian farmers receive an airdrop of a first aid kit and other items, from a drone that's part of the company's new Project Wing. Google's advanced-research lab said it is developing a system of drones to deliver goods with its Project Wing prototype
The first robot, Foundation Robot, shuffles around the footprint of the building on caterpillar-style tracks, following a pre-defined route and using a sensor to steer itself around the shape. Like your standard 3D printer, it squirts out building material, which is made up of 50 percent marble powder and 50 percent polymer for a lightweight but strong substance, in layers.
Kitepower: Kite Wind Turbine Demonstration video Wind energy harvesting at a higher altitude by using a kite results in a eco and cost friendly solution. This demonstration system is developed by the Asset Group of TU Delft. Roland Schmehl and Rolf van der Vlugt explain current developments and the future of the project.
