Quantum Computing (11/23/14 12:49)

Physicists managed to take data packaged into three qubits and stuff it down into a two-qubit container. The road toward something as powerful and daunting as real-world quantum computing is getting littered with proofs of concept.

3D Printing (09/21/14 17:44)

One of the most compelling things about the 3D printing market right now is quite simply the variety of printers and other related design tech, out there. In turn, that leads to an incredibly diverse range of products now being scanned, modelled, and printed.

Building Houses (09/14/14 11:17)

The "Minibuilders" project features three small robots that work together to build objects much bigger than themselves. Quite adorably, teamwork is their greatest asset: by taking over from each other as the building requirements change throughout construction, they can print the whole thing from start to finish.

The New Graphene (03/28/14 11:29)

It has not been made yet. But physical chemists have made one unit of a boron cluster, called B36, and detailed its interesting structure on a supercomputer. They claim that "a boron-based competitor to graphene is a very real possibility.”

Hightech: Printed Houses (03/08/14 12:06)

The first bricks of a canal house in Amsterdam have been printed, bringing the world a step closer to 3D-printed buildings. Dutch architects are taking things full-scale with a life-size, habitable canal house.

Renewables: The Sugar Battery (02/12/14 12:46)

Researchers have developed a battery that runs on sugar, emits only water, is refillable and biodegradable, and has more energy-storage density than lithium ion batteries.

Exhaling Onto Your Phone (01/24/14 18:10)

A nickel alloy wind turbine that's approximately 1.8 milimeters in diameter--the smallest working windmill yet constructed--could eventually be worked into panels that power your smartphone.

Human Resource: Internet Mystery (12/17/13 11:21)

For the past two years, a mysterious online organization has been setting the world's finest code-breakers a series of seemingly unsolveable problems. Welcome to the world of Cicada 3301.

Energy: New Storage (11/30/13 17:23)

Viruses are primarily known as annoying bugs that give us a cold. But US researchers have found a way to employ them in order to improve energy storage, potentially increasing the range of electric cars threefold.

Wireless Infrastructure (08/12/13 18:23)

The city of Gumi, South Korea has debuted a wirelessly charged electric bus, becoming yet another municipality to embrace induction charging.

Funding: Horizon 2020 (07/08/13 17:29)

Starting next year Horizon 2020, the European Union research programme, will make around € 70bn in funding available over 7 years.

Self-Healing Chips (03/29/13 18:22)

Imagine that the chips in your smart phone or computer could repair and defend themselves on the fly, recovering in microseconds from problems ranging from less-than-ideal battery power to total transistor failure. It might sound like the stuff of science fiction, but a team of engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), for the first time ever, has developed just such self-healing integrated chips.

Recycling: Electricity From Thin Air (02/21/13 18:19)

A German student has built an electromagnetic harvester that recharges an AA battery by soaking up ambient, environmental radiation.

3-D Architecture & Printing (01/29/13 19:34)

One surface folded in an endless möbius band. Floors transform into ceilings, inside into outside. Production with innovative 3D printing techniques. Architecture of continuity with an endless array of applicability.
