Electricity-creating fabric could be everywhere soon

David Carroll, nanotechnologist at Wake Forest University.

Nanotechnologist, David Carroll, is working on a simple material that he thinks will soon be a part of everything you own.  Carroll’s research group at Wake Forest University developed a flexible fabric that makes electricity from heat or movement. It could revolutionize cheap, renewable energy.

AMF measures self-cooling in graphene.

Graphene is a substance that scientists have been highly interested in as an alternative material for faster-charging batteries. We’ve been hearing for several years about its potential to replace silicone in computer chips, but for the first time, we’re hearing that graphene might also be self-cooling, a feature that might be a huge boon for more efficient and energy-saving devices.
