Researchers in Liverpool have developed a computer virus that spreads via Wi-Fi like the "common cold." Now, when nearly every home has wireless Internet, it means that the virus can go from network to network exploiting weaknesses. The virus, once...
Proving that looks aren’t everything, the AirMule UAV, developed by Israel’s Urban Aeronautics, is designed for cargo transport, medical evac, and troop supply missions. The vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) UAV was unveiled in 2008, completed its maiden flight in 2010, and is scheduled for deployment this year.
Because I needed another reason to be skeptical of flying.... The newly installed LED lights in Terminal B of Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey don’t just provide clean, bright light for people waiting to catch their flights. They’re part of another installment in the “things that watch us without our knowledge” saga....
I can’t wait to live in GE’s home of the future. (Last week, I talked about the car I must have, so it seems fitting that my next topic be about my dream house. As with the car, this is assuming an unlimited budget and available technology.) Last week, I headed to Allentown, PA to the Da Vinci Science Center in order to see an exhibit called Home 2025.
An observational study from UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has found that prostate cancer patients who undergo robotic-assisted prostate surgery have fewer instances of cancer cells at the edge of their surgical specimen and less need for additional cancer treatments like hormone or radiation therapy than patients who have traditional "open" surgery.
Cornell Dubilier Electronics (Liberty, SC) announces the release of type HZA Hybrid Polymer-Aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Combining the advantages of each technology, type HZA has the ultra-low ESR characteristics of conductive aluminum polymer capacitors packaged in a V-chip....
Three dimensional imaging of two different mouse models of Apert Syndrome shows that cranial deformation begins before birth and continues, worsening with time, according to a team of researchers who studied mice to better understand and treat the disorder in humans.
Transducers USA (Elk Grove Village, IL) has introduced their new piezo ceramic MLCT (Multilayer Ceramic Transmitter) series. Its unique simple acoustic multi-layer ceramic construction produces a high output of 80 Db with only 16V low driving voltage.
Small, wireless monitor provides long-term remote monitoring to help physicians diagnose and monitor irregular heartbeats: Scripps Green Hospital has become the first hospital in the United States to implant the world's smallest implantable cardiac monitoring device. Scripps Clinic cardiologist John Rogers, M.D., successfully completed the first implant of the Reveal LINQ™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) on Saturday.
Generating electricity is not the only way to turn sunlight into energy we can use on demand. In a study published last week in the journal Science, Choi and postdoctoral researcher Tae Woo Kim combined cheap, oxide-based materials to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gases using solar energy with a solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency of 1.7 percent, the highest reported for any oxide-based photoelectrode system.
RFMW (San Jose, CA) announces application and sales support for a new line of Low PIM (Passive Intermodulation) coaxial switches from Radiall. The rapid growth of 4G/LTE networks has led to the need for better-performing Low PIM devices. As a result, Radiall developed a broad series of switches....
Learning an instrument, dancing ballet or reading braille – the golden rule for acquiring skills such as these is: practise, practise, practise. However, there are some things that the brain learns without any training at all. RUB researchers have demonstrated in several studies...
TRUMPower (Santa Clara, CA) launched the TMP65 Series of low cost medical grade AC/DC desktop power adapters, which has both Class I and Class II models availability. The TMP65 Class II units, furnished with an IEC 320/C8 AC inlet without a ground pin, are
Earlier this month, NJIT formalized an agreement with Chinese partners that will advance the university's research on thin-film solar cells, an alternative energy technology with the potential to make buildings and other infrastructure substantially more energy-efficient.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory are revealing the mysteries of new materials using ultra-fast laser spectroscopy, similar to high-speed photography where many quick images reveal subtle movements and changes inside the materials. Seeing these dynamics is one emerging strategy to better understanding how new materials work, so that we can use them to enable new energy technologies.
