Inkjet Hologram Printing Now Possible

Vivid holographic images and text can now be produced by means of an ordinary inkjet printer. This new method, developed by a team of scientists from ITMO University, is expected to significantly reduce the cost and time needed to create the so-called rainbow holograms, commonly used for security purposes, to protect valuable items, such as credit cards and paper currency, from piracy and falsification. The results of the study were published in Advanced Functional Materials scientific journal o...

“Li-Fi” 100 Times Faster Than “Wi-Fi”

Li-fi is a new means of delivering data using visible spectrum as against the radio waves used by most other methods. This new technology has already been tested in a functional office. What makes Li-fi stand apart is the astonishing speed at which can deliver access to the internet, often 100 times faster compared to Wi-fi at a mind-boggling speed of 1Gbps. You need a light source similar to an LED bulb, a photo detector and an internet connection to use Li-fi. The visible spectrum of light use...

Global warming will be faster than expected.

Scientists suggest that global warming could progress faster than was previously believed because increased temperatures influence natural greenhouse gas emissions. Numerous studies from the Swedish research team over the past two years have determined that natural greenhouse gas emissions will increase when the climate gets warmer, Linköping University reported.  Now, their most recent study has backed up these findings. "Everything indicates that global warming caused by humans leads to increa...

Stanford team combines logic, memory to build a ‘high-rise’ chip.

Stanford researchers are building layers of logic and memory into skyscraper chips that are smaller, faster, cheaper and taller. They have created a four-layer prototype high-rise chip in which the bottom and top layers are logic transistors. Sandwiched between them are two layers of memory. The vertical tubes are nanoscale electronic "elevators" that connect logic and memory, allowing them to work together to solve problems. The circuit cards are like busy cities in which logic chips compute...

Cheaper, Faster, More Accurate Test to Identify Gene Defects in Heart Patients

Stanford researchers have designed a new technique to test cardiac patients for any genes that might be causing problems. This new technique could eventually enable doctors to diagnose genetic heart diseases by rapidly scanning more than 85 genes known to cause cardiac anomalies. For the subset of heart patients whose illness isn’t caused by a lifetime of cigarettes, trans fats or high glycemic foods, a new genetic test developed at the Stanford University School of Medicine may be able to...

BAT: The floating balloon Wind Turbine

Altaeros Energies is aiming high with new heights for wind energy. The company, led by Ben Glass, has created a new invention with the help of balloon and airship technology to lift a wind turbine. Their novel Buoyant Airborne Turbine--the BAT--is a balloon that lifts a wind turbine. Most wind turbine manufacturers are competing to build taller turbines to harness more powerful winds above 500 feet, or 150 meters. The Altaeros BAT can reach 2,000 feet, or 600 meters. At this altitude, w...
