Holy &%$! inventions

“Engineers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee have developed technology for embedding in a highway electric coils that transfer powerto similar coils that could be built under cars. Passing over a single coil at 60 miles per hour won't amount to much, but a long stretch of them could give a car battery significant juice.” Sign me up!

Electron microscope draws nano-sized patterns in metal ink

Electron microscope draws nano-sized patterns in metal ink One of the greatest challenges in designing electronics is drawing very fine details. You normally need lithography which complicates the process by requiring masks. However Oak Ridge National Laboratory has now found a way to write at an extreme... via Engadget Gadget News Tech News
