Crab Shells and Trees Combine to Create New Food Packaging

– Approximately, one-third of the food that comes from farms for example, gets wasted before it gets to a consumer’s table. One of the ways that this problem is going to be solved as the population of the planet grows is using packaging. What our research is trying to do is to create sustainable solutions […]

Beyond the Metal: NASA Investigating Soft Robots for Space Exploration

There’s a lot of things that you need to do on the surface of another planet such as exploring a site or maybe correcting an instrument or creating a temporary shelter to shield from dust or wind on Mars. We are looking into a swarm of soft robots that can move around the surface of […]

Cheaper and greener electricity at home

Our days are regulated by the use of appliances that weigh on our electricity bills. But machines like air conditioning, water boilers or refrigerators could be less expensive if used in a clever way. To help us save money, experts from the EU-funded project ADDRESS have developed this Energy Box, currently tested by Spanish households. […]

Using Microbes to Generate Electricity

HUMANITY IS RUNNING ON FULL POWER. FROM INDOOR PLUMBING, TO THE LIGHTS IN OUR HOUSES, TO OUR CARS, DEVICES WE’RE AN ENERGIZED SOCIETY. IN A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE LIVE IN FEAR OF RUNNING OUT OF ENERGY, A TEAM OF UNIQUE RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND A POTENTIALLY INFINITE POWER SOURCE. MEET DOCTOR LENNY TENDER. HE IS A […]

Welcome to the G1 reactor head assembly tutorial. This is Bibianne, she is going to show you how to assemble the reactor head of the G1 nanoparticle generator. Assemble the reactor in a few mode, place left end cap on mounting tool. Place left KF clamp, place electrode in left end cap. Place KF part […]

Innovation Awards Winners 2017 – Boron doped diamond electrodes

What Zoe’s doing behind me is recording a pH measurement. It’s really important in water quality and health monitoring It’s based on technology that’s over 100 years old. I’ve always been interested in trying to develop a sensor material that would be extremely robust; the one that really kept coming back to me that had […]

Penn State: Inspiring Research – Electricity

V.O.: Electricity. Most Americans think of Ben Franklin and his kite when they hear that word. The rest of the world thinks of a valuable resource that can be impossible to find. Nearly a fourth of the world’s population is still without the simple luxury of electricity. Dr. Dabo: If you look at the situation […]

Improving Flow Battery Electrodes HD 720p

Hi, I’m Alex Oliveira. I’m a junior chemical engineering major at University of Connecticut, and this summer I’m working on redox flow batteries with the Brushett lab group. So redox flow batteries are a very promising technology for large-scale energy storage, and, in particular, the work that Alex is doing with us over this summer […]

My Research: using Machine Learning to detect electricity theft

Hi, I’m Patrick, and I’m a PhD candidate I’m in my third year and I work on the detection of electricity theft using machine learning. Electricity theft is an issue all over the globe but in particular in emerging markets. If you look at Brazil, India, Pakistan, Nigeria – it’s a huge issue and what […]

DNA in the Electric Universe | Electricity of Life

Welcome to the Electricity of Life brought to you by The Thunderbolts Project™ at Thunderbolts.info In 2011 Jacqueline Barton was awarded the National Medal of Science for the discovery that DNA conducts electricity and that DNA damage can be sensed as a loss of electrical conduction. Some errors such as a mismatch between base pairs […]
