Objects Invisible

Making objects invisible has always existed as a fantasy-based scenario. However, a recent research performed by UEx has thrown light onto the possibility of making certain materials by utilizing their electromagnetic properties. Key Insights Into the UEx Research Work With invisibility gaining a lot of research interest, the work undertaken by UEx promises is a key addition in this obscure domain. This research was published in Scientific Reports by the

Biofuel

A new study suggests that glucose-powered biofuel cells could help power implantable medical devices. This research was carried out by researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology in collaboration with Korea University. Pacemakers and other sensor components are prime examples of such implantable devices that can be powered with cotton fibers.
