Wearable-flexible-Technology

How about elastic gadgets that one can wear? Sounds amazing right? It would be feasible in the near future.

Elastic technologies could make flexible garments and robotic components that human might wear to interact with computers and healing purposes in case of any health problems.

Rebecca Kramer, an assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at “Purdue University”, said that new techniques manufacturing such devices must be developed before making it  commercial. She further said that we want to create stretchable electronics that might be compatible with soft machines like the robots that we have seen in many science movies, when Hero pass through narrow and irregular spaces with ease with the help of tech wearable gadgets. This wearable stuff doesn’t restrict motion hence the person can move without any problem.

On an interview, she also said, “Conductors made from liquid metal can stretch and deform without breaking.” It’s worth noting that scientist have already made closely related components that we are using already commercially like flexible solar panels and computer accessories.

Recently a technique was developed, that focus making components by using a mixture of alloys in an inkjet printer. That means, it use liquid metal instead of ink and can be printed according to the need on a flexible fabric or elastic material.

The printing ink is made by dispersing the metal in a non-metallic solvent. This is done by the use of ultrasound. The sound breaks up metal into nanoparticle. The good news is that it is fully compatible with the inkjet printer. The nanoparticles thus rejoined by applying light pressure. This is crucial as the metal previously is coated with oxidized gallium and  acting as a skin,  preventing electrical conductivity.

The only drawback is, it’s fragile and breaks on applying pressure resulting into uniform flat film. Kramer said, “we can do this either by stamping or by dragging something across the surface, such as sharp edge of a silicon tip.”

published in “Science Daily”

A research paper about the method will appear on April 18 in the journal Advanced Materials. The paper generally introduces the method, called mechanically sintered gallium-indium nanoparticles, and describes research leading up to the project. It was authored by postdoctoral researcher John William Boley, graduate student Edward L. White and Kramer.

It would be astonishing to see how they are going to make I happen and we as a user be using it.

 Lightening Fast Computers On the Way

How about using light to make your gadgets work not with the electricity but with the light? Seems impossible right? Probably not because within the next ten years you would be using light instead of electricity to run your computer. It’s probably not the joke but a fact. Computers would use photons for processing than the current carrying electrons.

Type scientists have produced a material that permit computers to store and transfer information adopting the light instead of electricity.

This research surmounts a major hurdle in the goal to achieve optical computers capable of processing data at the speed of light.

Presently gadgets and computers process information by the transfer of positive and negative charge particle which constitute current. The quantity of the charge corresponds to the binary codes which are used to store information. This whole data is saved in the memory storage devices and moved around microprocessors via nano wires.

This technology might seem small to the non-technical people but it is a giant step towards increasing the efficiency of computers. It challenges the Moore’s law which describes that it is impossible to make computers much faster than they are now i.e. we physically cannot shrink the components much further.

The next researches are in progress in which computers can process information via practical of the light i.e. photons and not on electrons.

Currently information in the internet is transferred via photon by the use of optical fibres but scientist and researches are yet notable to make that happen in computers.

Chalcogenide is a type of glass which is used in CDs and DVDs presently, have such properties and can be modified to achieve that technology.

They are capable of conducting light across a wide range of spectrum of light. Though they can only transfer positive i.e. p-type conductivity traditionally. But now with the modification it is able to transfer both positive and negative charges and is used in p-n junction devices. This directly means that now scientists are able to speed up the computers. Scientists unlocked the potential, by doping the Chalcogenide with Bismuth ions.

  This would enable the material to behave like a light guide, light source and light detector. This is something which can carry and interpret optical information and enable the computer process faster.

Presently they are using the glass in producing the next generation computer memory technology called as CRAM and the next step would be creating computers entirely with optical fibres

Its time for you engineers. Help them achieve that soon. And last but not the least do share it.
