Synthetic 'brainy skin' with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

Synthetic 'brainy skin' with sense of touch gets £1.5m funding

A robotic hand covered in 'brainy skin' that mimics the human sense of touch is being developed by scientists. University of Glasgow's Professor Ravinder Dahiya has plans to develop ultra-flexible, synthetic Brainy Skin that 'thinks for itself'. The super-flexible, hypersensitive skin may one day be used to make more responsive prosthetics for amputees, or to build robots with a sense of touch.

Ultimate smell test: Device sends rotten food warning to smartphone

When it comes to the "smell test," the nose isn't always the best judge of food quality. Now scientists report that they have developed a wireless tagging device that can send signals to smartphones warning consumers and food distributors when meat and other perishables have spoiled.

Carbon nanotubes for flexible, fingertip-wearable terahertz imagers

Carbon nanotubes for flexible, fingertip-wearable terahertz imagers

Researchers have developed flexible terahertz imagers based on chemically "tunable" carbon nanotube materials. The findings expand the scope of terahertz applications to include wrap-around, wearable technologies as well as large-area photonic devices.

Supercapacitors Exceed the Energy Density of Batteries

Some supercapacitors will become smart materials and be sold as feedstock by value added material companies such as Dow DuPont and Nitto Denko. Which companies and when is as yet uncertain. This is part of the emerging big picture for supercapacitors that will make even their materials a multi- billion dollar business.

Organic crystals twist, bend, and heal

Organic crystals twist, bend, and heal

Crystals are brittle and inelastic? A novel class of smart, bendable crystalline organic materials has challenged this view. Now, scientists have engineered a molecular soft cocrystalline structure that bends and twists reversibly and without disintegration when stimulated by high temperature, mechanical force, or under UV light.

Supercapacitor Materials Improvement: Gateway to Multi $ Billion Busin

Supercapacitor Materials Improvement: Gateway to Multi $ Billion Busin

Supercapacitor materials are rapidly improving by new routes. The active materials are the dominant part of cost and the cause of limitations such as flammability, toxicity, cost, energy density and self- discharge. Currently the active electrodes almost always consist of bulk "hierarchical" carbon with a range of pore sizes, often made the old way from botanical materials.
