Carbyne could be stronger that Graphene (pictured above). (cc) AlexanderAlUS/ CORE Materials A new research paper published on Arxiv describes in detail the properties of Carbyne, a supermaterial that is stronger than graphene and diamond, and can be synthesized and stabilized at room temperature. Carbyne is stiffer than anything that scientists have seen before, and could potentially have a wide variety of applications in nanomechanical systems and electromechanical devices.

Comments Off on KAIST Displays Tiny Electric Vehicle That Folds Down to Just 5 Feet

A team of Korean researchers has unveiled a tiny electric vehicle that folds down to just 5.24 feet, which is one third of the space that makes up a standard parking spot. Urban centers around the world are set to become increasingly polluted and crowded as populations explode and people flock to cities. In response to a need for smaller, compact and clean-running vehicles to mitigate the environmental harm and personal discomfort that comes with such overcrowding, the team from the Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) built the Armadillo-T to roll up into its shell quite like the South America animal does when it is threatened.
