A European tech developer created a wave energy converter disguised as a boat. The design aims to produce energy while protecting the device from salty water problems.
Researchers successfully directed tiny robots to clear pneumonia in mice. The outcome raises hopes that a similar treatment could be developed to treat pneumonia in humans.
A team of Chinese scientists developed a device made of nanogenerators that could produce significant electricity from sea waves, double the best previously achieved record.
A Miami-based aerospace company begins taking pre-orders for its electric vertical take-off and landing or eVTOL aircraft that can fit into a garage. The good news is that you can fly the aircraft even with a regular driver’s license after completing a 20-hour training course.
United Airlines invests and pre-orders 200 electric flying taxis with vertical take-off, believing they have the potential to work in the transportation market. United also hopes to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050 without carbon offsets.
This week, scientists will be firing up the most powerful laser in the US called ZEUS, or the Zetawatt-Equivalent Ultrashort pulse laser System.
German researchers turn plastic sheets into tiny diamonds using laser beams. The laser beams heat up the plastic, causing the molecules of the plastic to reconfigure into a nanodiamond.
Geneticists from Stanford University created synthetic genetic circuits to help them reprogram the crops’ root systems and make them more resilient to climate change.
An Australian research and development company turns green hydrogen and oxygen into a heat source that rivals burning fossil fuels for power. The process called the “hydrogen energy release optimizer” or HERO uses a catalyst that reacts with hydrogen and oxygen to produce heat hot enough to spin turbines that generate electricity.
Researchers from the University of Cambridge developed floating “artificial leaves” that generate clean fuels using sunlight and water. The devices take their inspiration from photosynthesis, where plants convert sunlight into food.
