Engineers Get Under the Skin of Ionic Skin

Engineers Get Under the Skin of Ionic Skin

In the quest to build smart skin that mimics the sensing capabilities of natural skin, ionic skins have shown significant advantages. They're made of flexible, biocompatible hydrogels that use ions to carry an electrical charge. In contrast to smart skins made of plastics and metals, the hydrogels have the softness of natural skin. This offers a more natural feel to the prosthetic arm or robot hand they are mounted on, and makes them comfortable to wear.

Design Tweak Helps Prevent Malfunction in Yarns That Store Energy

Design Tweak Helps Prevent Malfunction in Yarns That Store Energy

Researchers have found a way to prevent electrical malfunctions in yarns designed to store electrical energy. Ultimately, the findings could help advance the development of "smart textiles" that would capture energy from the wearer's movements and power sensors and wearable electronics.

Converting Waste Heat into Electrical Power for Ships

Converting Waste Heat into Electrical Power for Ships

On vessels where moving to low-sulphur fuel has created a surplus of steam, the E-PowerPack will transform the excess into a free source of power. Going forward, the E-PowerPack will also be vital as energy recovery becomes key in transitioning to green methanol and ammonia.

Escaping Saturated Grids

Escaping Saturated Grids

The Dutch power grid is almost full. The red areas indicate where grid operators can no longer connect large green power generators, such as new wind and solar farms, to the electricity grid due to overloads.
