A battery that recharges in just 15 seconds has been developed using graphene by Estonia-based Skeleton Technologies and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany. Named the SuperBattery, the groundbreaking power source will revolutionize the world of electric vehicles, which has been suffering from slow charging, battery degradation, and range anxiety.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invented a miniature thermometer that can measure temperatures below 1 kelvin (-272.15 °C or -457.87 °F), down to 50 millikelvins (mK). The new mini-thermometer can be attached in all kinds of places to provide quick and accurate temperature measurements where needed most.
Project on FloatGen unit off France aims to develop lighter-weight and lower-cost floating turbine designs
The first laser-guided wind reading technology has been installed atop a floating turbine, with a nacelle-mounted Lidar unit now operating on the FloatGen demonstrator turning off France.
Solar panels are a cornerstone of the clean energy revolution. And yet, they have one great flaw: when the clouds roll in their productivity dives. A new type of solar panel has been developed by an electrical engineering student at Mapua University that harvests the unseen ultraviolet light from the sun that makes it through even dense cloud coverage.
Organizations are using the internet of things and a constellation of smart devices to drive business change. It’s a technological shift that will ultimately have worldwide implications.
New technologies can optimize the way people work. When implemented thoughtfully, such innovations can improve overall business processes. Those changes are accepted as part of progress.
