World’s lightest sound insulator could radically reduce jet engine noise

This graphene-based aerogel is the lightest sound insulation material ever manufactured, say researchers at the University of Bath, who have demonstrated its ability to damp down noise by up to 16 decibels despite weighing just 2.1 kg per cubic meter (0.13 lb per cubic foot).Continue ReadingCategory: Materials, ScienceTags: Acoustics, Aerogels, University...

"Mosquito smoothies" streamline production of promising malaria vaccine

The pursuit of a vaccine for malaria has always been an important one, with more than 400,000 people dying from the disease every year. But with the parasite behind it becoming resistant to drugs and the mosquitoes that spread it becoming more resistant to pesticides, there is a need for new, advanced weapons in the fight. A new technology could give...

Porous membrane saves high-density lithium metal batteries from failure

By substituting graphite for high-density pure lithium metal, scientists may be able to dramatically improve the performance of battery technology, but there are hurdles still to overcome. Scientists at Germany's Friedrich Schiller University in Jena have now demonstrated how a finely tuned carbon membrane can prevent these types of batteries from failure,...

FDA Alzheimer’s call slammed as “Worst drug approval in recent US history”

Amidst concerns surrounding the drug’s efficacy and price, several expert advisors to the FDA have resigned in protest and calls for top officials to step down are growing.Continue...

IBM's autonomous Mayflower ship sets sail across the Atlantic sans crew

IBM's Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS400) has set sail across the Atlantic ocean without a crew or human control. Built and operated in conjunction with ocean research non-profit ProMare and industry partners, the autonomous trimaran left Turnchapel Wharf at Plymouth, England at 4 am GMT on June 15 and is in international waters en route to Plymouth,...

Flying bus: Braeden Kelekona elaborates on his staggering 40-seat eVTOL

eVTOLS, or electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, are a hot topic at the moment. Dozens, even hundreds of companies are working at fever pitch to create the new class of clean, quiet, cheap air taxi that many believe will fundamentally transform our cities in the coming decades. You could be forgiven for getting real tired of hearing about...

Phoenix guitar takes a modular approach to tone

Around this time last year, we featured an interesting prototype electric six string from startup Fern Guitars that allowed players to install pickup modules in a host body, without having to break out the soldering iron. Now the Phoenix guitar has launched on Kickstarter to raise production funds.Continue ReadingCategory: Music, TechnologyTags: Kickstarter,...

Airspeeder flying race car takes to the air over South Australian desert

We've been hearing about Matt Pearson's dream to race multirotor flying cars for a few years now, with startup Alauda Aeronautics making its international public debut in 2019 and an awesome-looking full-sized electric racer revealed earlier this year. Now the team has released footage of the Airspeeder Mk3's first flight tests.Continue ReadingCategory:...

Tunneling snake robot takes cues from nature to keep its head in the sand

Robots are great at exploring land, sea, sky and space, but one environment that’s trickier for them to navigate is through the ground. Now, engineers at UC Santa Barbara (UCSB) and Georgia Tech have developed a snake-like robot that uses a range of methods to burrow through soft sand or soil.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Robot,...
