“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...

New graphene based inks for high-speed manufacturing of printed electronics.

Developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge in collaboration with Cambridge-based Technology Company Novalia, the method allows graphene and other electrically conducting materials to be added to conventional water-based inks and printed using typical commercial equipment. This is the first time that graphene has been used for printing on a large-scale commercial printing press at high speed. A low-cost, high-speed method for printing graphene inks using a conventional roll-to-roll p...

UCSB researchers create nanoparticles to act like blood platelets

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara have created nanoparticles that resemble blood platelets that can be used to speed up the healing process and create clots faster to decrease blood loss from an injury. They have turned to the human body’s own mechanisms for inspiration in dealing with the necessary and complicated process of coagulation. By creating nanoparticles that mimic the shape, flexibility and surface biology of the body’s own platelets, they are able to accelera...

Bloodhound: World’s fastest racing car.

The supersonic car built to smash the current land speed record has been unveiled in London. Its top speed is more than 1,000mph an hour which is faster than a speeding bullet, and it is powered by Rolls-Royce jet engines and a rocket. The Bloodhound is part of a £40m project spearheaded by Richard Noble, a man who held the record between 1983-1997 at 633.4mph, to break the land speed record. Noble's record was beaten by RAF fighter pilot Andy Green in 1997, who hit more than 763mph. Now work...

World’s Fastest Motor from Celeroton

The world’s fastest motor which can spin in excess of 1 million revolutions per minute has been developed by researchers at ETH Zurich's Department of Power Electronics and marketed by the Swiss company, Celeroton. The need for smaller electronic devices requires smaller holes, which means we need smaller, faster, more efficient drills. This new motor could be applied for faster drills and more efficient and compact compressors for cars and airplanes. Compared to collapsed stars that sp...

A House that Walks

An eco friendly house can actually walk. The latest invention derived from a collaborative effort between MIT and the Danish design collective N55 is a house that walks about five kilometers an hour similar to the walking speed of a human. The eco-friendly  prototype house powered by solar cells, miniature windmills and 6 legs walked around the campus of the Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire, England. It comprises of a kitchen, a composting toilet, a system for collecting rain water,...

Controllable Wingsuit to Fly Through the Air

Imagine if you could glide through the air with wings like a bat and control your movements more easily. Inventor Tony Uragallo of Zephyrhills has invented a new product called Bird Wingsuit which is created of a web of nylon material between outstretched arms and legs. He based his research on the kite birds to develop his technique. He observed that Kites steer by twisting their tail one way or another and this led him develop his new wingsuit. Compared to the earlier wingsuits, this ...
