Following the devastating 2011 tsunami , Japan’s Fomm designed an electric vehicle that can protect people in areas susceptible to flash floods or tsunamis. The Concept One electric car is not only the “world’s smallest class four-seater electric vehicle,” but it can also can float like a boat.

Comments Off on MIT Engineers Create New Hybrid Materials That Could ‘Grow’ Electronic Devices

A team of MIT engineers have created ‘living cells’ made from bacteria that could be used to ‘grow’ electronic devices. The cells are then used to produce biofilms that incorporate nonliving materials, such as gold nanoparticles and quantum dots. The resulting ‘living materials’ could produce complex biological molecules, which could be utilised in solar cells, self-healing materials, diagnostic sensors and even smartphones.
