Stretchable Solar Skin

“Super skin” is what Stanford researcher Zhenan Bao wants to create. She’s already developed a flexible sensor that is so sensitive to pressure it can feel a fly touch down. Now she’s working to add the ability to detect chemicals and sense various kinds of biological molecules. She’s also making the skin self-powering, using polymer […]

HAIRS: Hydrogel-Actuated Integrated Responsive Systems Joanna Aizenberg, Harvard University Responsive behavior, which is intrinsic to natural systems, is becoming a key requirement for advanced artificial materials and devices, presenting a substantial scientific and engineering challenge. We designed dynamic actuation systems by integrating high{aspect-ratio nanocolumns or nanofins, either free-standing or substrate-attached, with a hydrogel layer. The […]

The Nano Suit

The Nano Suit – Life Without Architecture -Jon Bailey, …an abstract for an upcoming polemical text and architectural project. In this projected future, nanotechnology (specifically relating to that of autonomous nanorobotics) has the ability to self-replicate and assemble into complex molecular configurations, where the nano-structure can assemble and re-assemble from a solid to a gas […]

sea-mouse nanowires

THE shimmering sea mouse, Aphrodita aculeata, may hold a key to creating nanoscale electronics, making it possible to produce nanowires 100 times longer than existing methods allow – and for a fraction of the price. The sea mouse is a marine worm the length of your thumb and is native to the North Atlantic and […]
