Researchers at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology in Korea have developed, what they claim to be, the world's first imprintable and bendable lithium-ion battery. The move should hasten the adoption of mobile devices with flexible displays, such as Samsung’s Youm flexible OLED, and potentially other flexible devices that are beginning to emerge.
Well I thought you might want to know, Mydesign...all it took was a simple rebooting of my iPad to get it to like the wireless network. So I am now able to use it with my WiFi! I remember always being snarky when an IT person at a company would tell me to "reboot" when I had a computer problem at work...however, it sometimes is the simplest fix that gets things working properly again.
I do use it, Mydesign, when I can actually download books! I just have a big problem with my iPad not connecting to my Internet at home...but sometimes it works. I will troubleshoot and see if I can make it happen...thanks for the nudge! :)
Yes, I do know some people who swear by their iPads, but for me, the most helpful application I found was iBooks (because of my love of reading--I liked that I could have books on my device). But then the device for some reason is incompatible with my home WiFi network here in Portugal (and I'm not exactly techie enough to figure out how! Have had similar problems with Apple products and WiFi in Europe)...so I can't even download books! Quite an expensive toy not to be using it..
Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
