The ever-growing tech allows us to fabricate objects we never could with traditional manufacturing. Here are some of the incredible things we can print now, which were nearly impossible to make before.
As batteries chargecand discharge cycles, their electrodes expand and contract, whic leads to gradual battery degradation. Now, a team of researchers has a new kind of nanoparticle that may ease the problem.
Right now they use heavy aluminium masking tape to cover up surfaces during production. Now, engineers at BAE Systems have created a new kind of tape that leaves the surface clean when it’s peeled away
