Cheaper, plant-based carbon fiber could be used to make lighter cars that consume less fuel.
Using two types of "designer" quantum dots, researchers are creating double-pane solar windows that generate electricity with greater efficiency and create shading and insulation for good measure. It's all made possible by a new window architec
If every window in the United states was converted to transparent solar cell windows with 10% solar efficiency then researchers claim it would produce 80% of the electrical needs of the USA.
It's getting to the point where it seems like adding a dash of graphene can improve just about anything.
Hi Folks, here is the book I bought to build the gasifier, this one is relatively small, Much larger ones are used in co-gen applications and for chemical refining, this one is suitable and scalable for small displacement engines and up to 4-5 litRead Letter
A Canadian company, Leckie Studio Architecture + Design, based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada has created a design for an incredible off-grid home that can be assembled, pretty much anywhere by a team of four in less than a week. If you h
Between manufacturing technologies like 3D-printing, CNC routers, lost-whatever metal casting, and laser and plasma cutters, professional quality parts are making their way into even the most modest of DIY projects.
Boron nitride nanotubes could be used to make hypersonic planes.
Even more impressive is their commitment to create the house with the latest technologies to make sure that the structure uses as little energy as possible.
The process combines a common mineral, serpentinite with compacted carbon.
First off, what is Hempcrete?
Leave modern concrete structures in the ocean, and a few decades later they'll be in need of replacing, or at least a serious patch job.
Godot is here and operational

It looks like chain mail, but unlike the ancient armor, NASA's fabric isn't welded together. Instead a 3-D printer extrudes stainless steel as a continuous sheet of material with different properties on each side.
Consumer Reports, which six months ago was skeptical about the viability of Tesla's Solar Roof product, has once again "done the math" using newly announced pricing estimations.
Waterjet cutting is a proven method for creating intricate and precise cuts with nearly any kind of material, although the machines are big and expensive.
Sometimes it would be useful, or even just cool, to be able to illuminate a whole wall.
The first commercially-available 3D Concrete Printer will be available for purchase soon - www.totalkustom.com
While Tesla itself still needs to figure out how to produce and prepare the production line for it Solar Roof products (a pilot validation line will be established at the company's Fremont facility in June before moving to volume production at the
