The future of stem cell technology is superconductivity

The future is superconductor technology, according to MIT researchers.The research, published online today in the journal Nature, suggests that superconductors are a possible alternative to carbon nanotubes, the technology behind the world’s most powerful superconducting magnets.The superconductive material, called supercondensate, has many of the properties of carbon nanotsheets, which are also used in many electronic […]

How to make a superconductor from scratch

In the 1960s, an American inventor named Josephine Folsom invented a metal that could be turned into a superconducting conductor, or a magnetic field, by adding a chemical substance called “electron-capture.”Folsam’s method worked well, but the metal was fragile and would not conduct electricity at the speed it was supposed to.A solution was to use […]

What’s going on with Google’s Ricebran and Rice’s latest project?

Ricebrans are software-based sensors used to collect data from objects around a room, but they have a history of being abused.The sensor has been used to record people’s movements in the house, and to collect body temperature.This month, a Brazilian man died in his home from hypothermia, after Ricebrains found him asleep on a couch […]
