Wearables are the next big thing in technology but the creations we have seen so far implement electronics from the present generation which cannot bend or contour with our body which makes them bulky and cumbersome to use on a daily basis. Even if wearables use flexible electronic material they are not strong enough to cope with daily wear and tear and once broken they cannot be put together again. Researchers from the Penn State University have come to the rescue by creating a flexible...

In December 2013, Akshat Singhal, who is pursuing Msc Physics and B.E(Hons.) in Civil Engineering from BITS Pilani, started Legistify (previously known as GetLegal), as an online forum where you could ask questions and get answers about your legal queries from lawyers and law students. He thought of this idea because he faced several issues related to legal formalities while running his earlier startup. Soon his idea bloomed and he pivoted to building an "Online Legal Facilitation Platform"...
Adam Savage from Mythbusters once said that the difference between screwing around and science is writing stuff down. Google seems to have noted things down and is now helping you note stuff down with the help of its new Android app. The Google Science Journal app was launched a few days ago on Android with the aim of helping kids as well as adults conduct simple experiments. With the Google Science Journal app you have access to a digital science notebook that can measure and record data...
Catalyst- a common expression which appears in almost every chapter of a chemistry textbook holds a key role in deciding the fate of a chemical reaction. Be it organic or inorganic, catalysts are used everywhere. It is basically a chemical element or a compound that either accelerates or retards the rate of a chemical reaction without participating in it. However, they are often very pricey as most of them contains one or more noble elements like platinum, palladium etc. The supply of these...

How far can a battery sustain itself in extreme conditions? This is one of those challenges for which scientific minds are putting all their efforts to find a practical solution where a battery, either that of a smartphone or a car charging source could adapt to environmental changes. Improved Lithium batteries could withstand up to 110 degrees Celsius whereas the new concept of mushroom batteries can run at full swing even at 700 degrees centigrade. These examples are the possible citations...
