Medicine & TechnologySpinach, the green leafy vegetable full of nutrients, might have found its new purpose aside from providing energy in humans - providing a clean alternative for fuel cells and batteries.
Traditional biometric authentication only uses 2D imagine—increasing the chances of false acceptance or rejection of identity. Researchers develop a new system using photoacoustic tomography for more accurate 3D finger vein biometric authentication.
This year's Beijing Auto Show included impressive car concepts, electric vehicles, new systems, and a flying car. All other major auto show events on other continents have been canceled due to the pandemic.
Chinese scientists develop a tiny wind turbine that can harvest energy from a light breeze. The developers hope that someday it can be used to power electronic devices, provide electricity for communities where energy is scarce, and even compete with traditional wind turbines.
Endoscopies have evolved from taking images of the esophagus, intestines, and organs, using bulky equipment to minimally-invasive procedures using precision lasers. A new endoscopy technique, however, involves an even smaller device, one that is measured in microns, with the ability to record pixel-by-pixel images of red blood cells.
Whenever there is a discussion about the best way to throw a football, people will often focus on the grip, the footwork, and even the arm motion before release. What you may not hear as much is the physics involved.
Using nanotechnology and silicon-on-insulator technology, scientists develop a tiny ultrasound detector that can create images of cells and small fragments of tissue. The developers hope the technology can also be expanded outside medical applications such as industrial uses.
Desalination processes to produce potable water are essential for all communities, especially in areas where water is scarce. However, traditional methods go through multiple processes resulting in additional costs and energy. Scientists developed artificial carbon nanotubes as an efficient filtration system.
Chitin, an organic substance commonly found on Earth, can be used to create tools and shelter for future space explorations on the Moon and on Mars. Scientists have been developing technology that efficiently manufactures chitin-derived materials.
The Korean electronics manufacturer LG has finally unveiled the LG Wing - its first Explorer Project device that has a T-shaped design, featuring a 3.9-inch dual-display screen and a gimbal motion camera.
