In the future, nanoparticles may self-assemble themselves into chips and other definite structures

Chips assemble themselves

Dr. Eric M. Furst of University of Delaware and his postdoctoral researchers are imbued in making scalable forms of technology a reality. The findings of the group of scientists were published on September 17th in the Proceedings of the National Academics of Science (PNAS). The findings are titled ‘Multi-scale kinetics of a field directed colloidal phase transition’. The article elucidates the team’s research on colloids which are microscopic particles, a hundredth in diameter of a human hair. It is illustrated in the article how these microscopic ‘building blocks’ can be instructed to autonomously assemble on their own, into specific structures.

Wearable sensor network to control body postures in the most nervous situations

RISR

New techy products are launched every day to make your life easy and better and we believe that RiSR would do the same. Wearable technology is the new hit in the market and RiSR is based on the same thought. RiSR is a blessing for those introverts who always feel shy interacting with new faces. The product has been designed in form of a network of sensors synchronized with an infrared camera and it works by sending vibrations to your body pose to make it correct. So in short, you can define this product as a body correction device. It helps in improving your social life by teaching you how to control nervousness while on date or grasp respect in the office.

NASA funding a weird plane that flies sideways to go supersonic

SBiDir-FW

NASA is financially supporting a concept plane that can be weird for us while we imagine it. The concept plane can fly sideways and can go supersonic by rotating 90 degrees. A researcher at University of Miami named Gecheng Zha along with his team is developing a similar plane funded by NASA with $100,000. The team will get $100,000 more when they show remarkable progress in its development. The name of this concept plane is SBiDir-FW.

A credit card sized device ‘electronic nose’ can detect every odour in the air

Electronic nose

Engineering prof. Nosang Myung who is based at University of California is working with Nano Engineered Applications, and has developed a device that can sniff presence of any kind of substance around it. Nosang says that the device is just a prototype and includes a computer chip, USB ports, and temperature and humidity sensors. The device would be very useful in every sector. It would detect presence of gas leaks in industrial sectors, pesticide levels in agriculture sectors, chemical conflicting agents in military sector and will also be helpful for police to empty drugs from pockets of drug dealers.
