Laser-induced graphene gets tough

The labs of Rice University chemist James Tour and Christopher Arnusch, a professor at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, introduced a batch of laser-induced graphene? (LIG) composites in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Nano that put the material's capabilities into more robust packages.

Virtual sound bubbles

Taewoong Lee of Aalborg University has created a unique sound algorithm that produces isolated ‘bubbles’ of sound so that multiple people can listen to different sound tracks in the same room without disturbing each other.

Flexible electronic skin aids human-machine interactions

Human skin contains sensitive nerve cells that detect pressure, temperature and other sensations that allow tactile interactions with the environment. To help robots and prosthetic devices attain these abilities, scientists are trying to develop electronic skins, a topic which New Electronics has been following and reporting.

VR testing ground for drones

A virtual reality (VR) training system for drones that enables a vehicle to “see” a rich, virtual environment while flying in an empty physical space has been developed by MIT.

'Soft' robots that can move on their own

A new class of soft robot, composed of ultrathin sensing, actuating electronics and temperature-sensitive artificial muscle that can adapt to the environment and crawl, has been announced by researchers at the University of Houston.

Liquid-in-liquid 3D printed structures

Scientists from the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a way to 3D print structures composed entirely of liquids. They envision their all-liquid material could be used to construct liquid electronics that power flexible, stretchable devices.

Next-gen optical disk to solve data storage challenge

Using gold nanomaterials combined with a hybrid glass material, scientists from from RMIT University and the Wuhan Institute of Technology say they have demonstrated a new type of high-capacity optical disk that can hold data securely for more than 600 years.
