Scientists developed a mobile desalination device capable of creating clean drinking water without pumps or filters, weighing less than 10 kilograms and requiring only a small solar panel to be powered.
Technology is improving at a rapid pace, and so is artificial intelligence. We may one day create a virtual world similar to our own. The ethics surrounding such a proposition make for an interesting topic.
Being a far more eco-friendly alternative to the internal combustion engine doesn't mean that there isn't still room for improvement for EVs. Swedish scientists developed a clever way to improve battery recycling.
DNA is over a million times more effective in saving information than our best current methods of data storage. Sadly, slow read and write speeds make it unsuitable for real-world applications. That is why scientists are shooting for a breakthrough proposing a faster technique for encoding data to synthesized strands of DNA
While silicon is currently still the most efficient material for solar panels, it is not transparent. Researchers have therefore been looking into organic or carbon-based materials for window-friendly solar panels
Scientists have developed a longer-lasting, lighter, and more ecologically responsible alternative to the familiar lithium-ion batteries. On top of that, they should be able to store far more energy at the same weight.
Access to clean and safe drinking water is becoming more and more of an issue for millions of people around the globe. Scientists from the University of South Australia devised an affordable technology to solve this issue.
