Rescooped by ManufacturingStories from Random, as it comesonto Innovation in Manufacturing Today
The latest in that line is GE’s Revolution* CT scanner, which was just cleared for use in the U.S. Where Roentgen and Coolidge could see just shadowy outlines of bones and organs, the new machine can image the heart in just one heartbeat...More....
Nanocomp’s manufacturing process creates CNT macro-structures (e.g. sheets, tape and yarn) made from trillions of multi-millimeter carbon nanotubes (see Part 1, above). Products sold in these forms are used in a wide array of applications, with particular impact where weight savings, reliability and improved system performance are desired...more..
By combining the powers of two single-atom-thick carbon structures, researchers at the George Washington University's Micro-propulsion and Nanotechnology Laboratory have created a new ultracapacitor that is both high performance and low cost.
An Irish research team has reportedly developed a breakthrough method of manufacturing of the ‘wonder material’ graphene on an industrial scale, something scientists have been unable to achieve until now.
For years, companies have been adding whiteners to laundry detergent, paints, plastics, paper and fabrics to make whites look "whiter than white," but now, with a switch away from incandescent and fluorescent lighting, different degrees of whites may all look the same, according to experts in lighting.

PI's P-763 XY nanopositioning stage is a new, more affordable addition to PI's wide range of piezo stage positioners.
Investors may be about to buy a bigger stake in SpaceX. Elon Musk's 12-year-old venture is in discussions with investors to see if they're interested in sinking fresh cash into the space transportation company, Quartz has learned. The Hawthorne, California-based company, known more formally as Space Exploration Technologies, has reached out to venture capital funds who invested money during...
Hot foam may soon send criminals running if they damage ATM. ETH researchers have developed a special film that triggers an intense reaction when destroyed. The idea originates from a beetle that uses a gas explosion to fend off attackers...more..
uniPi Raspberry Pi Aluminium Case Now Available For $35 - The Raspberry Pi uniPi case has been designed by David Pazdan, who originally launched it on the Kickstarter crowd funding website to raise enough funds to make the jump from concept to production. | Geeky Gadgets
Amazon has finally hit the market with its own over-the-top streaming video box.Amazon Fire TV is joining an increasingly crowded market for OTT set-tops, all offering access to pretty much the same set of services and apps, such as Netflix, Pandora, and Amazon's own Amazon Prime streaming service. The Fire TV arrives with a $99 price tag, the same at the AppleTV, and the most expensive Roku box.
Researchers led by Hyung Gyu Park of the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at ETH Zurich have produced a stable porous membrane that is thinner than a nanometer. This is a 100,000 times thinner than the diameter of a human hair. The membrane consists of two layers of the much exalted graphene, a two-dimensional honeycomb-like film made of carbon atoms, through which the researchers shot tiny pores of a precisely defined size. The membrane can thus permeate tiny molecules. Larger molecules or particles, on the other hand, can pass only slowly or not at all...more...
Graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the carbon material graphite, has been hailed as a wonder material--strong, light, nearly transparent and an excellent conductor of electricity and heat--and it very well may be. But a number of practical challenges must be overcome before it can emerge as a replacement for silicon and other materials in microprocessors and next-generation energy devices.One particular challenge concerns the question of how graphene sheets can be utilized in real devices...more...
The 15nm technology will ramp on both two bits-per-cell (X2) and three bits-per-cell (X3) NAND flash memory architectures with production ramp to begin in the second half of 2014.
Grant to investigate how carbon nanotubes in everyday products might affect human health
Researchers discover new method to produce large volumes of high quality graphene
An open innovation program seeks to significantly lower the cost of seawater desalination using innovative renewable energy processes or new materials.
The Innovation Enterprise. Most manufacturers would tell you that innovation is one of their most important activities. Without innovation, growth is stymied, the future becomes uncertain. Yet, according to a new Manufacturing Leadership Council poll on innovation- primarily focused on small and medium-size companies-most manufacturers approach innovation less than rigorously and sometimes with a surprising informality.
NASA Kennedy Space Center's historic Launch Complex 39A, the site from which numerous Apollo and space shuttle missions began, is beginning a new mission as a commercial launch site.
A technique using anesthesia-containing nanoparticles -- drawn to the targeted area of the body by magnets -- could one day provide a useful alternative to nerve block for local anesthesia in patients, suggests an experimental study in the April issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia ("Nanoanesthesia: A Novel, Intravenous Approach to Ankle Block in the Rat by Magnet-Directed Concentration of Ropivacaine-Associated Nanoparticles"), official journal of the International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS)."We have established proof of principle that it is possible to produce ankle block in the rat by intravenous injection of magnetic nanoparticles associated with ropivacaine and magnet application at the ankle," write Dr Venkat R.R. Mantha and colleagues of University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. With further study, the nano-anesthesia technique might allow more potent doses of local anesthetics to be delivered safely during local anesthesia in humans...more
Until yesterday, the world record for fastest time in solving a Rubik's Cube was 5.27 seconds, which was set in the fall of 2011 by a Lego robot named
The two dimensional material was first isolated by Professor Andre Geim and Professor Kostya Novoselov at The University of Manchester. It is the thinnest material known and yet also one of the strongest. It conducts electricity as efficiently as copper and outperforms all other materials as a conductor of heat. Graphene is almost completely transparent, yet so dense that even the smallest atom helium cannot pass through it.
When the Raspberry Pi was released earlier this year, the credit-card-sized Linux machine became an instant hit. The night it became available to order,
