Recycling on the microscale has macro advantages

Growing populations and technological advances are driving consumption,using up raw materials,and creating a crisis in waste management.What can we do with the ever-growing volume of obsolete electronics or ‘e-waste’,for example,which will reach 50 million tons by 2021? A large proportion is currently transported to developing countries to be processed,while the rest is stockpiled or sent …


Investors Still Betting on Next Big Energy Storage Technology: Solid-State Batteries

The U.S.may have fallen behind Asia and Europe in battery manufacturing,but a number of well-funded companies are looking to get the country back in the game with a technology that could supersede today’s lithium-ion chemistries. Companies including Ionic Materials,QuantumScape,Sion power and Solid Power are developing all-solid-state batteries (ASSBs) that are expected to be safer and more energy-dense than the lithium-ion products …


Upcycling plastic waste toward sustainable energy storage

What if you could solve two of Earth’s biggest problems in one stroke? UC Riverside engineers have developed a way to recycle plastic waste,such as soda or water bottles,into a nanomaterial useful for energy storage. Mihri and Cengiz Ozkan and their students have been working for years on creating improved energy storage materials from sustainable sources,such as …


Exploring the interactions between sound,action and vision in robotics

In recent years,researchers have developed a growing amount of computational techniques to enable human-like capabilities in robots.Most techniques developed so far,however,merely focus on artificially reproducing the senses of vision and touch,disregarding other senses,such as auditory perception. A research team at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have recently carried out a study exploring the possibility of using …

Miniature robotic camera backpack shows how beetles see the world

After creating tiny sensor backpacks for bees, researchers from the University of Washington have built a more advanced model for beetles. Dubbed “a GoPro for beetles,” the robotic packs carry a tiny steerable camera that can stream video at 1 to 5 fps and pivot up to 60 degrees. On top of getting an impressive bugs-eye …
