3D Printed Nanomachines May Soon Be A Reality

3D printing is usually used to create visible objects. It’s very rare that we get to see people experimenting in the creation of nanoscale objects. The few experiments in the field thus far have been used in medical applications, but …

Pee: Bill Gates’ Latest Investment To Save The World Pee: Bill Gates’ Latest Investment To Save The World

Do you recall a Time article last year that featured Bill Gates’ latest idea to improve sanitation in the developing and poorer areas of the world with the bold idea of turning human waste into a usable natural resource? He …

Nanotechnology Leaps Forward With New Cancer Drug

A team of scientists, engineers and physicians have found promising effects of a first-in-class targeted cancer drug called BIND-014 in treating solid tumors. BIND-014 is the first targeted and programmed nanomedicine to enter human clinical studies. In the study, the …

Carbon Nanotube Scale Can Weigh a Single Proton

A group of scientists at the Catalan Institute of Nanotechnology in Barcelona, Spain have succeeded in creating a scale so sensitive that it can measure accurately to the smallest unit of mass – the yoctogram. A yoctogram is one-septillionth of …

Nanopills Release Meds Inside Cells

UAB researchers developed a new vehicle to release proteins with therapeutic effects. The vehicles are known as “bacteria inclusion bodies”, stable insoluble nanoparticles which are found normally in recombinant bacteria. Even though these inclusion bodies traditionally have been an obstacle …

At Google’s Solve for X fest, Chamtech Operations unvelied thier new nanotech-based spray-on antenna kit, for use on existing antennas, as well as relatively antenna-shaped, upright builds. The science is basically nano-capacitors in a can, that can be sprayed onto …

Nanowelding With Light – Amazing Possibilities Nanowelding With Light – Amazing Possibilities

A team of engineers at Stanford has demonstrated a promising new nanowire welding technique that harnesses plasmonics to fuse the wires with a simple blast of light. At the heart of the technique is the physics of plasmonics, the interaction …

Nanotechnology Meets Yahweh

They set out to recruit young, would-be scientists, not necessarily to break records. But the next-smallest Bible is 50 times bigger. For context, that’s about 50 grains of sugar. This one has been printed on a gold-plated silicone chip less than 1/1000th of an inch.
