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 the future may in fact lie in manufacturing. Aalto University researchers have found a way to shape 3D objects by …

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 talked the talk, and now he’s walking the walk. You may have heard that the next big thing to worry …

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 researchers demonstrate BIND-014’s ability to effectively target a receptor expressed in tumors to achieve high tumor drug concentrations, as well …

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 a gram, and a proton weighs about 1.7 yoctograms, meaning the scale is sensitive enough to measure a single proton. …

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 in the industrial production of soluble enzymes and biodrugs, they were recently recognised to have large amounts of functional proteins …

Spray-On Antennas Unveiled at Google’s Solve For X Event

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 a tree or a pole to make an antenna. The “paint” also can boost an existing antenna’s signal by over …

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 of light and metal in which the light flows across the surface of the metal in waves, like water on …
