Researchers use jiggly Jell-O to make powerful new hydrogen fuel catalyst
A cheap and effective new catalyst developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, can generate hydrogen fuel from water just as efficiently as platinum, currently the best - but also most expensive - water-splitting catalyst out there. The catalyst, which is composed of nanometer-thin sheets of metal carbide, is manufactured using a self-assembly process that relies on a surprising ingredient: gelatin, the material that gives Jell-O its jiggle.

Microscopic Devices That Control Vibrations Could Allow Smaller Mobile Devices
To make modern communications possible, today's mobile devices make use of components that use acoustic waves (vibrations) to filter or delay signals. However, current solutions have limited functionalities that prevent further miniaturization of the mobile devices and constrain the available communication bandwidth.  Now, a research team led by Chiara Daraio , Caltech professor of mechanical engineering and applied physics, has developed new versions of these components with abilities previous incarnations did not possess.
