Unique Light Sensing 3D Printed Device Could Help People With Lupus

Unique Light Sensing 3D Printed Device Could Help People With Lupus

A team of engineers and doctors have designed a unique 3D-printed light-sensing medical device that is placed directly on the skin and gives real-time feedback to correlate light exposure with disease flare-ups. The device could help millions of people worldwide with lupus and other light-sensitive diseases by providing access to more personalized treatments and information to determine what causes their symptoms.

Graphene Supply Outstrips Demand

Graphene Supply Outstrips Demand

As of mid-2022, the global graphene and graphene oxide installed capacity easily exceeds 12,000 tonnes per year, but utilization is low as the orders lag significantly behind. Is this a natural part of the commercial journey, or has hype overcome reality? Is this a case of "build it, they will come", or are there real market needs? What does the future hold for these graphene manufacturers? IDTechEx provides an independent perspective on these questions and more.

Major Leap for Stable High-Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

Major Leap for Stable High-Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

Solar cells manufactured from materials known as perovskites are catching up with the efficiency of traditional silicon-based solar cells. At the same time, they have advantages of low cost and short energy payback time. However, such solar cells have problems with stability - something that researchers have now managed to solve.

Robo-Bug: a Rechargeable, Remote-Controllable Cyborg Cockroach

Robo-Bug: a Rechargeable, Remote-Controllable Cyborg Cockroach

Researchers have created remote controlled cyborg cockroaches, equipped with a tiny wireless control module that is powered by a rechargeable battery attached to a solar cell. Despite the mechanic devices, ultrathin electronics and flexible materials allow the insects to move freely. These achievements will help make the use of cyborg insects a practical reality.

Accelerating Commercialisation of Soft and Stretchable Electronics

Accelerating Commercialisation of Soft and Stretchable Electronics

The next generation of robotic technology will produce soft machines and robots that are safe and comfortable for direct physical interaction with humans and for use in fragile environments. Unlike rigid electronics, soft and stretchable electronics can be used to create wearable technologies and implantable electronics where safe physical contact with biological tissue and other delicate materials is essential.

Heliatek Signs Strategic Partnership with Looop for Japan

Heliatek Signs Strategic Partnership with Looop for Japan

Heliatek has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Looop In. to market and install the innovative solar films in Japan. Both companies have already tested the solar films in several pilot projects, including a comparison test site on the campus of the Ritsumeikan University in 2020. Heliatek and Looop are convinced that the innovative solar films are perfectly suited to unlock a large potential of unused surfaces for solar power generation in Japan's metropolises.
