This week on Txchnologist, we looked at a wide world of advances, from better ways to predict earthquakes to insect-inspired computing. First, University of Illinois engineers announced they developed a technique to create 3-D images of living cells without disturbing them.
Next, we covered an impending energy revolution on the tiny Caribbean island of Nevis courtesy of its extinct volcano. This former British colony is set to produce enough geothermal power for the country and possibly even neighboring islands, all using the heat right beneath them.
Finally, if you’re concerned about the mounting cost and environmental impact of your printing habits, this story is for you. Txchnologist investigated a new printing method developed by Chinese researchers that replaces ink with water. The method uses rewritable paper that, when wet, changes colors. According to the researchers, the paper can be erased and reused at least 50 times.
Now we’re bringing you the news and trends we’ve been following this week in the world of science, technology and innovation.
This week on Txchnologist, we looked at atypical forms of power generation. First, a team of scientists reported a breakthrough in powering medical implants by harvesting energy from moving internal organs like the heart, diaphragm and lungs.
Then, we saw a breakthrough from Duke University where researchers made a breakthrough in transmitting electricity wirelessly. The space between the transmitter and receiver was only about a foot away, but it’s still a step in the direction of a potentially wireless future.
