    Researchers Create Diamond “Wires” That Could Power Future Computers

    Physicists at Ohio State University have successfully sent an electron “down” a wire made of diamond, a first that could mean new methods of transferring data inside computer chips. As you can imagine, these aren’t wires in a traditional sense in that they conduct electricity. Instead, the physicists were able to pass a magnetic spin effect down the wire “like a row of… Read More

  • Free Lines: Power cables that snap into each other

    [photopress:free_lines3.jpg,full,center] Rather than “put up with” (because it’s so hard to do) a rat’s nest of cables, a designer has come up with a new way to think about electrical outlets. It’s called Free Lines and uses a system of modular blocks and cables to tidy up the whole cabling process. You plug one end into the wall and then snap in as much cable as you… Read More

  • Transmit TV Signals Through Electrical Wires

    Transmit TV Signals Through Electrical Wires

    A mighty German company has figured out a way to transmit television signals through the same wires that handle electricity. Devolvo demoed its creation a CeBIT, though for now the technology can only transmit one TV signal at a time. The technology is still in its infancy (even though companies have had ways to share a network connection via the very same wires for a while now) and uses IP to… Read More
