Scientists Showcase Iron Man Alike Class of Mechanical Devices

Do you hope to see Iron Man inspired mechanical gadgets in action one day? A new study has helped scientists close the gap on the imaginary genius, Tony Stark. According to study published in Science Robotics, ‘developable mechanism’ similar to missiles that pop out of Iron Man’s arms can become a ground reality soon. This new research claims that these mechanisms can operate with complex 3-D shapes without wear and

Scientists discover breakthrough mechanism to harvest energy

Scientists from the royal society have discovered an ideal method to harvest energy from water. Using virtualization, they have found the ideal wing shape for strong vortices or swirling flows. This research can pave way for improving current energy harvesting as well as for improving airspeed. The researchers relied heavily on our understanding of evolutionary biology. The 3-D virtualization technology allowed them to visualize different birds, their wing shapes and
