V-Master vortex-shredding flowmeter can measure liquid, gas, and steam, and measures process flow by detecting the frequency at which vortices are alternatively shed from a bluff body within the unit. The vortices create a differential force across a sensor wing, flexing it at a frequency proportional to the flow rate. To ensure maximum safety, the flowmeter features fully welded construction in the shredder bar and sensor area. This type of construction makes the unit as strong and safe as a standard pipe of the same wall thickness.

Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
