Darpa & Venter Launch Assembly Line for Genetic Engineering

The military-industrial complex just got a little bit livelier. Quite literally. That’s because Darpa, the Pentagon’s far-out research arm, has kicked off a program designed to take the conventions of manufacturing and apply them to living cells. Think of it like an assembly line, but one that would churn out modified biological matter — man-made […]

Scientists switch mouse’s genes off and on with radio waves

Scientists switch mouse’s genes off and on with radio waves

Some laboratory mice were given specially engineered insuling-producing genes. These genes were then remotely activated using radio waves. This could mean a whole new field of medical procedures in which we turn genes on and off at will. This breakthrough is the work of geneticists at New York’s Rockefeller University. It’s a pretty circuitous path […]

New Printable Antenna Can Harvest Ambient Energy To Power Small Electronics

New Printable Antenna Can Harvest Ambient Energy To Power Small Electronics

A new ultra-wideband antenna printed on paper or plastic can harvest ambient energy, enabling wireless sensors to tap into electromagnetic currents in the air around them. The device captures energy from a wide spectrum of frequencies, converts it to direct current, and stores it in capacitors or batteries. Researchers at Georgia Tech scavenged sufficient microwatts […]
