The new polymer $20 now in circulation may look and feel fake, but it's designed to stop counterfeiting.
Polymer Vision is taking E Ink to rollable places with its Readius -- a device that rolls a 127mm (5-inch) screen into a compact form factor, making it far more portable than Sony's Reader
Novel engineering adds brief laser impulses to 3D, inkjet-printed blood vessels to form capillaries, resulting in a complete and functional artificial organ made of polymers and biomolecules.
Many uses in store for new polymers that change color when physically stressed, researchers say.
A brand new 3D printer has arrived on the scene with the biggest print bed of any consumer model -- large enough to print small pieces of furniture.
Researchers at South Korea's KAIST university have developed a flexible thermoelectric generator that can convert body heat to power.
Long an obstacle to treating diseases like brain cancer, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's, the blood-brain barrier might soon be unlocked thanks to a medical physicist in Canada.
Will the future bring self-healing car bumpers? Researchers create a type of plastic that can regenerate over cracks and holes.
