A new artificial skin provides robots with a sense of touch

Modern robots are becoming increasingly significant in security, agriculture, and manufacturing. Researchers are now attempting to imbue these robots with a human-like sense of touch.

Using high-rise buildings as gravity batteries

Researchers at IIASA have developed a new energy storage concept that could convert high-rise buildings into batteries to improve power quality in urban areas. Lift Energy Storage Technology (LEST) is a novel gravitational-based energy storage solution that stores energy in lifts and empty apartments in tall buildings.

New biobattery for hydrogen storage is being developed by scientists

The search for carbon-neutral energy sources is becoming more vital as the struggle against climate change intensifies. Green hydrogen is a promising fuel in a carbon-neutral economy, and initiatives to manufacture it are now underway. One of the difficulties is safely storing and transporting the potentially explosive gas.

Bombardier’s Global 8000 is the world’s fastest and longest-range jet

The Global 8000 aircraft, the world’s fastest and longest-range purpose-built business jet, has been unveiled by the Canadian business jet manufacturer Bombardier. It has been innovatively designed with the industry’s healthiest cabin for safety, comfort, and performance without compromise.

Power per unit volume can be increased by 740 percent thanks to new electronics cooling technology

A team of researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) has developed a new cooling method that offers a significant increase in device power per unit volume over conventional approaches.

By 2027, smart traffic systems will save 205 million metric tons of CO2 emissions

According to a new Juniper Research study, global CO2 emissions savings from smart traffic management systems will be 205 MMT (Million Metric Tons) by 2027, a 41 percent increase from 145.7 MMT in 2022. According to analysts, this figure is nearly twice the CO2 emissions from UK domestic transportation in 2019.

The humidity in the air is used to power the self-charging battery

The idea of harvesting green energy from everyday wetness to power wearables and portable electronics is gaining traction. Fabricating high-performing moisture-electric generators (MEG) with high and stable output remains a challenge.

Full-scale eVTOL prototype for personal flight unveiled by AIR

At the Kentucky Derby, Israeli startup AIR unveiled the full-scale prototype of its first electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle, AIR ONE. The AIR ONE, which we discussed in October of last year, is a two-person electric fixed-wing aircraft powered by eight vertical lift rotors. Its eight electric motors can produce a maximum of 771 horsepower (575 kW).
