https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z45mU5BfpcY A Virginia Tech research team has developed a battery that runs on sugar and has an unmatched energy density, a development that could replace conventional batteries with ones that are cheaper, refillable, and biodegradable. The findings from Y.H. Percival Zhang, an associate professor of biological systems engineering in the College of Agriculture and Life... Continue Reading →
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8-8FveMieM A new approach to harvesting solar energy, developed by MIT researchers, could improve efficiency by using sunlight to heat a high-temperature material whose infrared radiation would then be collected by a conventional photovoltaic cell. This technique could also make it easier to store the energy for later use, the researchers say. In this case,... Continue Reading →

The results have been published in Proceedings of the IEEE. Generating... Continue Reading →
The U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will cost taxpayers $4 trillion to $6 trillion, taking into account the medical care of wounded veterans and expensive repairs to a force depleted by more than a decade of fighting, according to a new study by a Harvard researcher. Washington increased military benefits in late 2001 as... Continue Reading →

Park, working with collaborators at Harvard University, the University of Southern California, MIT... Continue Reading →
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsD3uTUtPks Your iPhone is a facade. Its apps may sparkle with color--some even seem to pop from your screen in 3-D--but they’re illusions with real tactile qualities. More and more, interface designers are attempting to break this fourth wall and make information something that you can really feel and move with your own two hands.... Continue Reading →
Netflix Roulette will help you decide what to watch tonightSure, Netflix has a seemingly endless library of content and a neural network specifically built to recommend content that you’d be interested in. Does that make it any easier to choose what to watch? Not always. Netflix Roulette is a much simpler randomizer for all of the content... Continue Reading →
