Soft robotics, typically inspired by octopuses, starfish, and squid, could get a boon from plants thanks to a new hydrogel out of Berkeley.
Researchers at the University of Maryland say a new gel made of water and a fibrous polymer kicks into gear a blood-clotting protein that can stanch deep wounds in minutes.
Working with the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, Big Blue has come up with a "hydrogel" that can beat back the bacteria that cause many deadly infections.
Harvard researchers create a heart patch using gels and 3D-printing technology that could someday lessen reliance on transplant surgery.
Rather than hydraulic actuators, springs or hinges, these tiny "bio-bots" are powered by living muscle tissue.
Spraying this liquid-repelling coating on a stencil provides a unique way for people to share messages that become visible after the design comes in contact with water.
Waterproof and water-resistant products have nothing on NeverWet. The superhydrophobic coating, now available in stores, repels liquids like you've never seen before.
A research team has been given a US$855,000 grant to start research on printing's next step: the fourth dimension.
Stanford researchers discover a way to make the brain completely transparent so they can study its structure without the need for slicing.
