Scientists 3D Printed Self-Assembling Wood and Carbon Fiber

For the most part, our wood and carbon fiber objects are solid, inert, and boring lumps. They don't bend or curl—or at least, they aren't supposed to. But MIT researchers have created wood and carbon fiber specially designed to be dynamic, conjuring up visions of wood furniture that self-assembles out of the flat pack… »10/14/14 4:13pm10/14/14 4:13pm

Self-Assembling Chips First Step Towards Extra-Bendy Evil Robots

It may look all innocent, but this little logic circuit is made from organic molecules that lined themselves up to form 300 transistors, without the need for machine production. This kind of chip-in-a-test-tube approach to creating semiconductors, demonstrated as effective for the first time by Philips Research, could… »10/19/08 5:30pm10/19/08 5:30pm
