New Polymeric Material can Replace Antibodies for Disease Diagnostics

Biotechnology experts at the University of Leicester have revealed that their team have developed polymeric materials that exhibit the capability to recognize molecules much more efficiently than natural antibodies, which may prove to be a boon for the disease diagnostic applications going forward. Working in association with an independent company called MIP Diagnostics Ltd., scientists at the U.K. University announced that their team have successfully managed to demonstrate that molecular

Heat to Generate Electrical Current

Heat is generated by a lot of electronic devices every single day and that generated heat is wasted in most of the cases. Physicists at Bielfeld University, Germany have come up with a way to make use of the heat that is generated everyday by many of the electronic devices. Magnetic signals termed as ‘spin currents’, are generated through the application of heat. It is hoped that in near future,

New Algorithm to Enhance Performance of Robots

A speedy collision detection algorithm is likely to improve the performance robots that would now act more like a human assistant at home or in operating rooms. Electrical engineers of the University of California San Diego have come up with a program called ‘Fastron’. This algorithm, Fastron, runs 8 times faster than the prevailing algorithms of collision detection. Applications of Fastron The team that is led by a computer and

New Robotic Hand takes Prosthetics to New High

Have you wondered how it feels not be touched at all? We often tend to take the very feeling of touch for granted. However, loosing that feeling of touch is quite traumatic for those who are left without hands and limbs. Despite the availability of sophisticated prosthesis that are able to imitate each and every motion of hand through its complex yet technically-advanced moving joints and fingers, it remains an

ISRO Develops Satellite-based Technology to Track Train Movements

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has developed a satellite-based system that can track the movements of trains on the real-time, providing information to passengers and their kin, as well as alerting road users at unmanned railway crossings. To deploy this technology, ISRO has developed integrated circuit (IC) chips that will be installed on ten thousand locomotives of trains across India, which has one of the largest railway infrastructure in

Researchers Create New Façade that Improve Energy Efficacy of Buildings

‘Two researchers at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) have recently created a ventilated façade equipped with a double chamber and a flow control device, which ensures less energy consumption in buildings. This efficient and sustainable solution can be utilized in both new buildings and renovations due to its simplicity and ease of application. In a building, the facade is the key constructive element in order to meet the needs of

Researchers Develop Optic Device to Measure Formation of Soot

A team of researchers at Sandia National Laboratories and the Technical University of Denmark have developed a new optical device that can create an image of pollutants in combusting fuel sprays. This device can measure the formation of soot, the particulate matter that primarily consists of carbon, as a function of space and time for a selection of combustion procedures. At first, the researchers concentrated on the combustion of the

Blending of Oil and Water is Possible Now

The property of oil and water to not combine and remain as such is so notable that it has turned into a platitude for portraying any two things that don’t go together well. Presently, another finding from analysts at MIT may turn that articulation on its head, giving an approach to get the two substances to blend and stay stable for long stretches – no shaking required. The procedure may

Researchers Attain Milestone for Ultra-fast Communications

  In yet another move for the furtherance of computing and communication technology, research conducted at the University of Utah has culminated into a milestone achievement. A special kind of perovskite has been discovered, which is a combination of an inorganic and organic compound and is structurally similar to the original mineral. The distinct feature is that this substance can be arranged in layers on a silicon wafer so as

Planet Nine – A Super Earth for Our Solar System

It might be enduring bashfully on the cold frosty outskirts of our solar system, concealing itself in the dark, but delicately pulling the moves behind the scenes: elongating the orbits of the distant celestial bodies, perhaps even bending the complete solar system on one side.  If such planet is present, it is extremely far off and is expected to remain that way with no possibility coming anywhere near to our

James Bond’s Most Loved Introduces Project Neptune

Aston Martin recently uncovered its outlines on driving its range a long ways past James Bond’s most loved device loaded autos – by uncovering gets ready for a multi-million-pound greetings tech submarine deserving of 007. What’s more, in a joking wisecrack to Sir James Dyson’s anticipates a ‘radical’ new electric auto, for which he has been poaching top Aston Martin architects and directors, the association’s supervisor likewise uncovered an outline

Celestial Phenomenon ‘Diamond Rain’ Induced in Laboratory

Researchers from the United States, Japan, Germany and the UK experimented at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to mimic the diamond rain within the interior of icy giant planets. This phenomenon, carried out at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), included the recreation of celestial climates is termed as lab astrophysics. It is a method of simulation of grand galactic events on smaller temporal and spatial scales wherein the physical

Underwater Probe on Fukushima Initiated

The 2011 disaster in Fukushima has largely been deemed as the second largest nuclear meltdown in the history of mankind. The radiation emitted from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant has already massively contaminated the surrounding soil and has pushed nearby civilians to leave the location. The actual extent of damage at the site of the power plant has so far been unclear, and scientists have sent a robot to find

Discovery of Unfound Molecules at the Center of an Exploded Supernova

A team of scientists studying at Cardiff University have discovered an inventory of previously undetected molecules for the first time at the center of an exploded star. Located 163,000 light years away, the cooling aftermath of Supernova 1987A showed the scientists two previously undetected molecules, Formylium (HCO+) and Sulphur Monoxide (SO). The explosion of this star was first observed in February 1987 and thus the star was named after it.

Cocoa and Chocolate Boost Cognition, Concludes Italian Researchers

In a recent review published in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition, researchers at the University of L’Aquila, Italy, examining at length the available literature on the intake of cocoa flavanols in participants revealed cocoa to have beneficial effects on their cognitive abilities. The review included studies on the impact of acute as well as chronic administration of cocoa flavanols on various cognitive functions. The revelation by scientists, first of its

SpaceX First Re-Flown Spacecraft Successfully Returns to Earth

With being the first to re-fly a commercial spacecraft to and from the International Space Station, SpaceX now has another achievement under its belt to boast about. In this mission, it used the Dragon capsule, which was also used during a previous trip to carry materials and supplies to the orbital facility for scientific experiments. This Dragon capsule was originally launched in September 2014. On June 3, it was refurbished
