MIT/Berkeley’s water-harvesting device uses porous metal-organic frameworks and sunlight to transform air into water at a rate of about 3-liters a day. (Image credit MIT)   It’s all in the MOFs- transforming air into water isn’t some kind of alchemic wizardry, nor is it done with tech from the future but rather it’s an ingenious solution using compounds of metal clusters and organic ligands. Yep, that’s the wonders of chemistry or rather the magic of “me ...
Researchers from Swansea University are creating a smart bandage that will use 5G to transfer data to your doctor. Smart bandages can track your recovery process and may cut back on hospital visits (Image via BBC)   Ever look at a bandage dressing and wonder why it can’t be smarter? Probably not, but for the few of you who do, a team at Swansea University’s Institute of Life Science in the UK is finally answering that question. They are currently planning trials of smart, 3D pr ...
A team from Duke university uses computer modeling to help compile a list of materials with magnetic traces. A microscopic look at one of the new magnets made of cobalt, magnesium, and titanium (Image via Duke University)   Magnets are pretty common in our life; not just the ones on your fridge. We encounter them daily whether we realize it or not. So, you would think magnetic materials are easy to find. This isn’t the case. Magnetic materials are pretty rare – roughly five per ...
Researchers from Boston University successfully manipulated mammalian cells to carry out certain tasks. The cells can be programmed to target certain diseases (Image via Emaze)   Ever think your body can be programmed like a computer? And not necessarily by watching too much TV. We’re talking about cells in your body actually being programmed to carry out certain tasks. Sounds like something from a sci-fi movie, but a team of scientists actually made it happen. Scientists from Boston ...
