Engineers 3-D print flexible mesh for ankle and knee braces

Hearing aids, dental crowns, and limb prosthetics are some of the medical devices that can now be digitally designed and customized for individual patients, thanks to 3-D printing. However, these devices are typically designed to replace or support bones and other rigid parts of the body, and are often printed from solid, relatively inflexible material.

"Self-Healing" Polymer Brings Perovskite Solar Closer to Market

"Self-Healing" Polymer Brings Perovskite Solar Closer to Market

A protective layer of epoxy resin helps prevent the leakage of pollutants from perovskite solar cells, report scientists, adding a "self-healing" polymer to the top of a perovskite solar cell can radically reduce how much lead it discharges into the environment. This gives a strong boost to prospects for commercializing the technology.

Touch in flexible displays: which technologies will prevail?

Touch in flexible displays: which technologies will prevail?

The technologies seeking to unseat ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) are by now themselves old, at least in the sense that they have been around for a decade and a half. They seem to have been forever in the waiting mode, anticipating the arrival of their major breakthrough. A key differentiator has long been higher flexibility and foldability over ITO. The question now is how will different technology options fare given that the paradigm shift towards flexible displays is finally upon us despite the recent product launch delays?

Plant wearable patches detect diseases

Plant wearable patches detect diseases

Researchers have developed a new technique that uses microneedle patches to collect DNA from plant tissues in one minute, rather than the hours needed for conventional techniques. DNA extraction is the first step in identifying plant diseases, and the new method holds promise for the development of on-site plant disease detection tools.
