bloodstream robotsProgress to human cell sized transforming robots made from atomically thin paper

Microscale machines – equipped with electronic, photonic and chemical payloads – could become a powerful platform for robotics at the size scale of biological microorganisms. * prototypes three times larger than a red blood cell have been made * they …

bloodstream robotsFast, Efficient bloodstream robots

The unique swimming strategies of natural microorganisms have inspired recent development of magnetic micro/nanorobots powered by artificial helical or flexible flagella. However, as artificial nanoswimmers with unique geometries are being developed, it is critical to explore new potential modes for …

bloodstream robotsGeneral Atomics doubles the energy density in power supply for railguns

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) announced today that it has developed a High Energy Pulsed Power Container (HEPPC) that provides twice the energy density than existing railgun pulsed power solutions. The HEPPC can reduce the number of pulsed power containers …

bloodstream robotsPulse-radio technology design for 1-terabit wireless

Rice University wireless researchers are taking a page from radio inventor Guglielmo Marconi to create the first laser-free, wireless system capable of delivering 1 terabit of data per second. Such a speed would be more than 20,000 times faster than …

3dLockheed 360 degree laser turret compensates for supersonic air turbulence in 60 flight tests

A prototype turret developed by Lockheed Martin for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the Air Force Research Laboratory controls and compensates for air flow, paving the way for laser weapon systems on tactical aircraft. The Aero-adaptive Aero-optic Beam …

bloodstream robotsLPP Fusion closes last of $2 million stock offering and slogs away on Tungsten electrode work

LPP Fusion again worked on the details of getting inpurities from the firing of the Tungsten electrode for their dense plasma focus nuclear fusion project. They have cleaned the Tungsten. There was a lot of non-trivial engineering needed. LPP fusion …

bloodstream robotsMach 3 naval guns are double the speed of standard shells and brings some benefits expected from hypersonic railguns

A guided HVP (Hyper Velocity Projectile.) round from a standard Mk 45 deck gun could bring a significant margin of the railguns promised capabilities to the fleet sooner, USNI News understands. The HVPs from a traditional deck gun will be …

bloodstream robotsThorium Tech Solutions is a japanese company working towards small thorium molten salt reactors

Kazuo Furukawa (inventor of the miniFuji and Fuji molten salt reactors),and Masaaki Furukawa set up “Thorium Tech Solutions” (TTS) in 2011 to make Thorium molten salt reactors. Since smaller thorium molten-salt power plant are easier to construct, TTS will develop the …
