A Flexible, Transparent Lithium-ion Battery

Stanford scientists used a grid-structured electrode, which is fabricated by a microfluidics-assisted method, such that the feature dimension in the electrode is below the resolution limit of human eyes, and, thus, the electrode appears transparent. By aligning multiple electrodes together, the amount of energy stored increases readily without sacrificing the transparency. In addition, the battery […]

KPN goes back to stone age of internet, charges mobiles per MB

This should cost them a lot of customers. People will probably change to other providers which do offer them unlimited mobile internet for a reasonable price. This comes as a response to the Dutch parliament not allowing mobile internet providers to cut off certain services, such as whatsapp, viber and skype from mobile internet. KPN […]

An interesting article who’s main premise is that feminists thought being a man was better because they were all over the place in top jobs, but forgot that men were also all over the bottom of society (in jail, being junkies, etc). Now there’s a load of anti-man / men are worse than women literature […]

First Demonstration of Time Cloaking

Time cloaking is possible because of a kind of duality between space and time in electromagnetic theory. In particular, the diffraction of a beam of light in space is mathematically equivalent to the temporal propagation of light through a dispersive medium. In other words, diffraction and dispersion are symmetric in spacetime. That immediately leads to […]

The fanless spinning heatsink: more efficient and immune to dust

There’s a fundamental flaw with fan-and-heatsink cooling systems: no matter how hard the fan blows, a boundary layer of motionless, highly-insulating air remains on the heatsink. You can increase the size of the heatsink and you can blow more air, but ultimately the boundary layer prevents the system from being efficient; it’s simply a physical […]
