    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… 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… 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… Read More
