Available February/March next year. The “Lytro”:http://www.Lytro.com features a technology they call “light field” — they grab sufficient photon data at capture time to allow refocusing, zooming, etc as a post-capture option. The Lytro is a simple step on the way […]
“Paper and Lignin-based RFID tags”:http://www.physorg.com/news200760151.html. “Silk electronic metamaterials”:http://www.physorg.com/news200841751.html. Seems like we are not far away from having processing power embedded in damn near everything. Not lots of processing power, but enough to do identification and limited sensing. Interesting times.
Continuing my educational adventure this spring: ME 568 Active and Sensing Materials: Fundamental knowledge of the nano-structure property relations of active and sensing materials, and their devices. Examples of the active and sensing materials are: shape memory alloys (SMAs), ferromagnetic […]
* Solar nanoantenna energy collectors — highly effective sunlight receptors based on nanoscale antennas. Now onto nanoscale rectifiers… * Another step towards cloaking devices
Flexible CNT circuits move on – nanotechweb.org. Just one of many efforts to implant circuits onto papers, plastics, etc. We are going to have processing power embedded in pretty much everything. Work on nanonet circuits — ok this stuff is […]
