New supertetrahedral aluminum is potentially four-times lighter than its regular counterpart

The third most abundant element in our earth, while also being the most abundant metal in the crust, aluminum has its fair share of property-based advantages, ranging from durability, malleability to corrosion resistance and conductivity (along with superconductivity). And now, one can potentially add intrinsic lightness to the list of 'assets', beyond the foil form…


Nanogenerator could potentially harvest electricity from the blood flow inside our veins

Throughout the history of mankind, people have used the potential and kinetic energy of flowing water to 'fuel' mechanical contrivances, ranging from the rudimentary watermill to massive turbines. One of the primary reasons for such a technological pattern spanning over millennia relates to the intrinsic advantage of flowing water that is independent of other parameters…


Finnish researchers have created edible protein from electricity

An incredible collaborative effort from scientists at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, has resulted in a batch of single-cell protein. And while this achievement may seem redundant, we must clarify that this protein was created by simply utilizing energy and matter like electricity and carbon dioxide. In essence,…
