Comments Off on Tesla promises automated robotic snake charger

Tesla Motors is developing an automated metal ‘snake’ that would emerge from the wall and connect itself to the battery port on Tesla cars. Such an advancement would essentially create a hands-free car charging system for owners of the sleek electric vehicles .

Comments Off on Thought-Controlled Robotic Arm Returns the Sense of Touch to Amputees

A team of Italian and Swiss researchers have developed the LifeHand 2 , the first artificial hand that restores a sense of touch to patients with a missing limb. The limb is wired up to electrodes implanted into the nerves at the point of amputation to allow easy control with no more than a thought . While still in the experimental stages, this new type of prosthetic could allow amputees to more easily lift and manipulate objects without having to carefully watch their every move.

Easton LaChappelle shows off an earlier version of his robotic arm [via Popular Science] Combining a Nintendo Power Glove with 3D-printed parts, 17 year-old Easton LaChappelle has designed an incredible robotic prosthetic arm . As a young teen, the designer still played with his LEGO bricks, but instead of LEGO fortresses, the 14 year old built his first foray into robotics. Made from LEGOs, fishing wire, and surgical tubing, LaChapelle built version one of his robotic arm, which earned him 3rd place in the Colorado Science Fair of 2011, and inspired him to go even further with the 3D-printed design.

Comments Off on Wind-Powered Car Travels 3,000 Miles Across Australia for $15 Worth of Electricity

A lightweight carbon-fiber car that runs on lithium-ion batteries and a portable wind turbine has just traveled 3,000 miles across Australia—and it used only $15 worth of electricity. The car, dubbed Wind Explorer, was designed by New Jersey-based Evonik Industries to demonstrate the potential of the company’s developments in battery power and lightweight materials .

Comments Off on PureMadi Uses Ceramics and Nanoparticle Technology to Purify Water in Developing Nations

In developing nations, access to clean water is a major humanitarian issue, so much so that numerous non-profits and foundations are dedicated specifically to the mission to provide access to basic sanitation. PureMadi , an organization of the University of Virginia, has invented two simple ceramic technologies that repeatedly disinfect water and are currently being developed for use in South Africa. The PureMadi filter and MadiDrop use ceramics treated with silver and copper nanoparticles to cheaply and efficiently eliminate a majority of pathogens.

Comments Off on MIT’s New Glucose Fuel Cell is Powered by the Human Body

A team of engineers from MIT has developed a new glucose fuel cell that runs on the same sugar that powers the human body. The team believes that the device will be able to “drive highly efficient brain implants” that would enable paraplegics to regain control of their limbs. The device, which is detailed in the June 12 edition of the journal  PLoS ONE , strips electrons from glucose molecules in order to generate a small electric current.
