First 5G-Connected Cars

Researchers have long thought that if cars can communicate with one another they can navigate and respond to road conditions without human intervention. Until recently, this was only a theory because wireless technology was too slow to provide the necessary data speeds required but thanks to a new 5G network this theory is being put […]

Composite Wing Morphing

Aviation Partners Inc., in partnership with FlexSys, recently developed an innovative jet wing capable of morphing its shape during flight. These Flexfoil wings use composite materials that provide high strength, heat resistance, and low weight, making it the perfect option for aircrafts. Traditionally, aircrafts use a combination of mechanical flaps, spoilers and ailerons to alter […]

New Technology Repels Ice

Researchers say the development of a new ice repelling technology could revolutionize safety for aviation and other industries operating in extreme low temperatures. The material, called magnetic slippery surface (MAGSS), prevents ice from building up on surfaces at subzero temperatures. One side of the surface is coated with a magnetic material while the other is […]

Desktop Waterjet Cuts Through Anything

A group of engineers from the University of Pennsylvania recently developed WAZER, a small, desk-sized waterjet cutter capable of through extremely tough materials. Similar to industrial waterjet cutters, the WAZER is powerful enough to blast through materials such as steel, ceramic tile, and titanium, however costs a fraction of the price. Waterjet cutters have been […]
