    3D-Printed Microfish May Soon Inject Themselves In Your Body

    Not unlike those fortune-telling fish you used to get at joke shops a new form of 3D-printed microfish – fish, not fiche – can wiggle and jiggle and wriggle inside you, dropping off medicine and cleaning up toxins as they go. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have created nano-sized fish out of materials that can react to their environment, allowing them to… Read More

  • Forget BPA and asbestos, watch out for silver nanoparticles

    Especially around your junk. Now, silver nanoparticles are one of these technologies where the benefits have been proven (they’re antibacterial when mixed in fabrics, for instance) but not the risks, and there’s a good chance that there are serious risks. When bringing a new product like this to market, usually the entity bringing it has to show proof that it’s not… Read More

  • HP creates atomic memory

    HP Labs has built a “memristor,” a nanoscale component that can store data without power. It is far denser than current hard drives and faster than RAM memory. The components can function in digital model, on/off, or analog mode in which they’re set to a specific value. The unlikely invention of the memristor took about 40 years. It started in the early 1970s when… Read More
