Hydrogen fuel cells may have just taken a giant leap forward. Indiana University scientists just announced they’ve managed to create a highly efficient biomaterial that takes in protons and “spits out” hydrogen gas. Called “P22-Hyd,” this modified enzyme can be grown using a simple room temperature fermentation process — making it much more eco-friendly and considerably cheaper than the materials currently used in fuel cells, like platinum.

Comments Off on Stanford engineers develop a Star Trek-style tricorder to detect early stage cancer

Science fiction television shows like Star Trek made popular the tricorder concept—a handheld device that can scan a person, object, or atmosphere and report on its health or makeup. Now, a team of Stanford electrical engineers have taken a giant leap for mankind toward a real device that can do just that. The team’s research theorizes that microwaves and ultrasound working together in a portable device could be capable of detecting hidden objects , be they plastic explosives or deadly tumors.
