A new concept in solar technology is poised to make a huge impact on the affordability of solar energy by blending cutting-edge techniques in nanoengineering with a design as old as the trees. To come up with a working solar panel that uses 10,000 times less material than traditional models without sacrificing efficiency professor Anna Fontcuberta, of the Swiss technology institute école polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, looked up, to the trees themselves.
Liquid Robotics debuted Monday the Wave Glider SV3, the world's first hybrid wave and solar propelled unmanned ocean robot, and with it, the technology to explore portions of the world previously too challenging or costly.
Boston Dynamics has now shown a type of robot- dressed up in hazmat suit and gas mask- that can walk, jump and even sweat like a human. The humanoid will be used to test for protective clothing in dangerous environment.
An unlikely alliance between cell biologists and astrophysicists have developed a technique that can generate bone tissue from stem cells.
