After investing millions of dollars in state-of-the-art technology, CYRO Industries (Rockaway, NJ) has introduced a "new generation" of abrasion-resistant acrylic sheet. The product, which incorporates 3M Co.'s 906 coating, features "unsurpassed quality and optics, with 40 times the mar resistance of uncoated sheet," according CYRO's Elizabeth A. DiGiose. In addition, the Acrylite(reg) AR sheet resists chemicals, is easy to fabricate, weighs 50% less than glass, and has more impact strength than glass. Most glass cleaners can be used to clean the sheet without harm. These qualities, says DiGiose, make the sheet ideal for applications subjected to heavy public contact and cleaning, including transportation and architectural glazing, hockey rinks/sports arenas, electronic display screens, store fixtures, security glazing FAX (973) 442-6117.

If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors. Robots we see on the big screen in recent years include Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Eddie Murphy. Top star of the era, Will Smith, takes a spin as a robot investigator in I, Robot. Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
