Google working with Tri-alpha Energy on nuclear fusion

Google is helping the Tri-alpha energy nuclear fusion project with improved algorithms, sensor data analysis and simulations. Google developed a new computer algorithm that significantly speeds up progress. The team achieved a 50% reduction in energy losses from the system …

Energy harvesting bracelet

A bracelet harvests energy from the wearer’s wrist movements. This energy can be converted into electricity and used to extend the battery lifetime of personal electronics or even fully power some of these devices. An energy harvesting bracelet (EHB) based …

Carbon Superconductivity raised from 11 kelvin up to 57 kelvin

Researchers at North Carolina State University have significantly increased the temperature at which carbon-based materials act as superconductors, using a novel, boron-doped Q-carbon material. The previous record for superconductivity in boron-doped diamond was 11 Kelvin, or minus 439.60 degrees Fahrenheit. …
