In this week's episode of the Engineering Update:

A guide to charging your phone in 30 seconds
Israeli startup StoreDot is taking the lead on shortening the amount of time it takes to charge your phone from a few hours to about 30 seconds by creating chemically synthesized bioorganic peptide molecules—called nano dots—that—as the name suggests—are really tiny.

Working with high-precision wearable sensor technology, the Mi.Mu gloves track hand motion, recognizing postures and detecting sharp movements that allow musicians to play with their hands.

Deploying electromagnetic railguns
Earlier this week, the Navy announced plans to install and test an electromagnetic railgun aboard a joint high-space vessel by fiscal year 2016. The railgun was capable of launching a 7 pound projectile at hypersonic speeds up to 2.4 kilometers per second, and the final operational system will be able to fire munitions up to 110 nautical miles.
