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 […]
