Scientists Have Developed a Material So Dark That You Can’t See It

If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to peer in to the inky blackness of the sky and catch a sneak peek at a black hole you’ll know that you can’t ‘see’ it in the conventional sense. Since everything that wades in to the... 

This Device Can Recharge Your Smartphones in 30 Seconds

How many of you are tired of having to spend hours on recharging your smartphone devices each time they run out of juice? I am guessing all of us absolutely hate to spend that much time on devices that are hardly going to last treble the time of the recharge.... 

Scientists Built an Impossibly Small Engine That Creates Torque But Don’t Know How It Works

What if you accidentally invented something one day and had no clue what it was and how it worked? Would that be a recipe for disaster or a challenge that you would gleefully accept? Well, there’s certainly one such invention by scientists of late.... 

Nanoparticles Cause Cancer Cells To Die And Stop Spreading

We have all known cancer to be a seriously deadly disease. However, what makes cancer deadlier is the spread of the primary tumour. Primary tumours can be treated using radiation or surgery but they make life a lot tougher if they remain untreated and... 

Hepatitis C Can Now Be Totally Cured By New Nanoparticle

While Americans worry every year about getting a flu shot or preventing HIV/AIDS, the deadlier silent is actually Hepatitis C; killing over 15,000 people yearly in the U.S. since 2007 and the numbers continue to increase as the carriers increase in age.... 

Micro-Machines To Start Making Medicine Inside Our Bodies

We have all seen nanotechnology in movies and television shows over the years, from the nanoprobes in Star Trek to the Nanomites in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Now these are some examples of nefarious uses of nano tech but a group of scientists from... 

Silicene May Be The Next Best Thing After Graphene

When Graphene was discovered a few years ago it was hailed as the next big thing for the manufacturing of computing and electrical devices, mainly because of its single atom layer of Carbon that is known as the ‘most conductive material in the entire... 

New Nanotechnology ‘Power Felt’ Can Convert Body Heat Into Power For Charging iPhones/iPods

Seems like the battery version of the humans seen in Matrix, generating electricity for the machines isn’t that far fetched. PhD student Corey Hewit from Center of Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials, Wake Forest University has devised an easy... 

3D Panorama View To Be Offered By Virtual Reality Contact Lenses

Contact lenses that aid in improving eyesight with the help of MP 3D Panorama images are mostly being designed with funding from military. A new research has stated that, for people who do not want to rely on contact lenses can go for lenses that will... 

World’s Smallest Battery Is 6 Times Thinner Than A Bacterium

Researchers at the Rice University have developed the world’s smallest battery that is just 150 nanometers in width — makes it six(6) thinner than a bacterium, hundreds of times thinner than a human hair and about 60,000 times smaller than a...
