Engineers turned a sheet of paper into a stand-alone electronic controller

T775 Setup Researchers have found a way to turn ordinary paper sheets into electronic control and information input devices that work without a permanent power source.   A team of engineers from Purdue University has developed a highly fluorinated molecule coating that repels water, oil and dust. This omniphobic material allows multiple layers of circuits […]

Scientists have turned an ordinary brick into a device for storing electricity

Scientists turn ordinary brick into a device for storing electricity Chemists have developed a substance that, when applied to the surface of ordinary red brick, turns it into a supercapacitor.. For several thousand years, bricks have been used in building construction and are rarely used for other purposes. However, researchers at the University of Washington […]
