3D printer threads electronic fibers onto fabrics

The potential for wearable electronics goes far beyond smart watches, but our current options for battery packs and circuit boards don't make for the most comfortable E-socks. One solution, being developed is to simply print flexible fibers on to transitional textiles or clothes.

Solar cells (like people!) work better with caffeine

Solar cells (like people!) work better with caffeine

Scientists have found that caffeine improves the stability of materials under heat - a property known as thermal stability — of perovskite solar cells, which could someday replace traditional silicon-based solar cells.

Safer electrochromic inks

Safer electrochromic inks

Anyone who has a rear-view mirror that automatically dims blue in reaction to annoying high-beam headlights glaring from behind has seen an electrochromic film in action. Chemists have developed a new method to more safely and, by extension, easily produce these shear films, which change their color with the help of a tiny electric current. This could make them available to many industries that have not been able to feasibly use them before.
