Microscopic Devices That Control Vibrations Could Allow Smaller Mobile Devices
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.

Engineers build smart power outlet
Engineers build smart power outlet
Have you ever plugged in a vacuum cleaner, only to have it turn off without warning before the job is done? Or perhaps your desk lamp works fine, until you turn on the air conditioner that's plugged into the same power strip. These interruptions are likely "nuisance trips," in which a detector installed behind the wall trips an outlet's electrical circuit when it senses something that could be an arc-fault - a potentially dangerous spark in the electric line.

Turning up the heat on thermoelectrics
Imagine being able to power your car partly from the heat that its engine gives off. Or what if you could get a portion of your home's electricity from the heat that a power plant emits' Such energy-efficient scenarios may one day be possible with improvements in thermoelectric materials - which spontaneously produce electricity when one side of the material is heated.

Conductive Paint Transforms Walls Into Sensors, Interactive Surfaces
Smart walls react to human touch, sense activity In room Walls are what they are - big, dull dividers. With a few applications of conductive paint and some electronics, however, walls can become smart infrastructure that can sense human touch, detect gestures and detect when appliances are used. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Disney Research found they could transform dull walls into smart walls at relatively low cost - about $20 per square meter - using simple tools and techniques, such as a paint roller.
