CREATING ENERGY BY WEARING A LOAD-REDUCING BACKPACK

A research team at Tsinghua University has developed the prototype of a load-reducing backpack that makes loads feel 20% lighter and uses energy from the wearer’s movements to power small electronic devices. Specifically, the researchers built two elastomers into the backpack to reduce its impact on wearers while they walk. The elastomers also use the … Read more CREATING ENERGY BY WEARING A LOAD-REDUCING BACKPACK

DATA TRANSFER BETWEEN COMPUTER AND CELL

Scientists at Columbia University have used a modified CRISPR system in order to write information into the DNA of living bacteria. Specifically, the researchers used a CRISPR-based cellular recorder as well as E. coli bacteria which significantly change their genomes when a voltage is applied. The genomic patterns “Power on “ and “Power off” correspond … Read more DATA TRANSFER BETWEEN COMPUTER AND CELL

GENERATING SOLAR ENERGY BY UPCYCLING BIO-WASTE

Carvey Ehren Maigue, a scientist at Mapua University in the Philippines has developed solar panels that can produce energy even without direct sunlight. The concept is based on luminescent particles from fruit and vegetable waste that is integrated into the glass. The particles can convert UV light that passes through thick clouds and thereby represents … Read more GENERATING SOLAR ENERGY BY UPCYCLING BIO-WASTE

AI-CHIP WITH BRAIN-LIKE FUNCTIONALITY

Researchers at RMIT University have developed artificial intelligence technology that brings together imaging, processing, machine learning and memory in one electronic chip, powered by light. The prototype delivers brain-like functionality in one powerful device. The AI chip is based on black phosphorous, which changes electrical resistance in response to different wavelengths of light. It could … Read more AI-CHIP WITH BRAIN-LIKE FUNCTIONALITY
