Technology to Produce Unbreakable Screens

Technology to Produce Unbreakable Screens

Researchers have unlocked the technology to produce next-generation composite glass for lighting LEDs and smartphone, television and computer screens. The findings will enable the manufacture of glass screens that are not only unbreakable but also deliver crystal clear image quality.

Flexible Device Could Treat Hearing Loss Without Batteries

Flexible Device Could Treat Hearing Loss Without Batteries

Some people are born with hearing loss, while others acquire it with age, infections or long-term noise exposures. In many instances, the tiny hairs in the inner ear's cochlea that allow the brain to recognize electrical pulses as sound are damaged. As a step toward an advanced artificial cochlea, researchers report a conductive membrane, which translated sound waves into matching electrical signals when implanted inside a model ear, without requiring external power.

Rethinking Smart Cities: Setbacks and How to Move Forward

Rethinking Smart Cities: Setbacks and How to Move Forward

Ideas have moved on from a smart city being a dystopian world of sensors everywhere and people control by artificial intelligence - smart cities are primarily about progressing to water, food, and power independence and minimal transport. How to make smart cities in both deserts and the sea must be figured out.

Smart Textiles Powered by Body Movement for Remote Health Monitoring

Smart Textiles Powered by Body Movement for Remote Health Monitoring

Absorbing the movement from the body, these super-smart textiles will not only power electronic components, but also act as self-powered functional sensors that are able to accurately sense the movements of targeted body parts.

Long Range Electric Cars Cost Less

Long Range Electric Cars Cost Less

No one complained about gasoline cars going much further than you would ever drive. As people got used to them, it was realized that long-range means less hassle. With electric cars, the argument is even stronger. Long-range saves you money.

Dental Implant Generates Electricity by Chewing to Repair Tissue

Dental Implant Generates Electricity by Chewing to Repair Tissue

Researchers are developing a smart dental implant that resists bacterial growth and generates its own electricity through chewing and brushing to power a tissue-rejuvenating light.
