Nothing is more depressing than seeing your smartphone run out of juice at the moment you need it the most. Doesn’t matter if you have a ridiculously expensive phone with a huge battery it still lets you down time and again. Even if you switch off battery sapping features such as GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and your data connection your phone manages to run out of charge because it has been claimed that your display consumes nearly 50% of your charge. We know that the Russians found the solution to...

If the title makes you remember T-1000, the antagonist of the sci-fi movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day, you aren't alone. Made of liquid, T-1000 was able to squeeze itself into tight spaces and could repair itself when harmed. MIT et al have managed to create something in the similar vein, but much less evil than the T-1000. Low cost material, made of wax and foam which can change states from soft to hard and vice-versa have indeed become a reality. These materials will be primarily used...

Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are developing a sensor which can be easily connected to the smartphones that will measure the levels of pollutants suspended in the air. As most of the cities have high level of particulate matter, this new novel device can be helpful in detecting the level of pollutants emitted by vehicles in the area nearby. The objective of developing this sensor is to track the pollution level in different parts of the city in real time and to form...
