This week on Txchnologist, we learned about advances in transparent electronics that could one day lead to implantable devices that give us real-time status updates on our health.
We also examined the development of algae biofuels after researchers announced they could create crude oil from the plants in under an hour, and saw what happens when you unleash YouTube’s Slow Mo guys at GE laboratories.
Now, we’re bringing you the top science, tech and innovation news we’ve been following this week.
