Smart Packaging for Dairy Products

Smart Packaging for Dairy Products

Researchers have developed a test to reveal bacterial contamination in dairy products well before they have a chance to reach anyone's lips. Researchers have proven a method that will allow producers, packagers and retailers to detect bacterial contamination in milk products simply by reading a signal from a test printed inside every container.

Electronic Nose on a Drone Sniffs out Wastewater Treatment Plant Stink

Electronic Nose on a Drone Sniffs out Wastewater Treatment Plant Stink

Researchers have engineered a portable electronic nose that's almost as sharp as a human nose at sniffing out the stink of wastewater treatment plants. Coupled with a drone, the lightweight e-nose can measure the concentration of different smells, predict odor intensity, and produce a real-time odor map of the plant for management.

A New 3D Printing Frontier: Self Powered Wearable Devices

A New 3D Printing Frontier: Self Powered Wearable Devices

When most people think of wearable devices, they think of smart watches, smart glasses, fitness trackers, even smart clothing. These devices, part of a fast-growing market, have two things in common: They all need an external power source, and they all require exacting manufacturing processes. Until now.

Flexible Sensors Slide Into the Future with Electronic Printing

Flexible Sensors Slide Into the Future with Electronic Printing

A new method of 'sliding' delicate high-performance electronics onto flexible surfaces could enable future developments in electronics, scientists say. Engineers claim they have found a way to solve one of the key problems of contact printing - a method of planting electronics onto bendable plastic surfaces to create flexible electronic circuits and devices.

3D Printed, Personalised, Wireless Wearables That Never Need a Charge

3D Printed, Personalised, Wireless Wearables That Never Need a Charge

Engineers have developed a type of wearable they call a "biosymbiotic device," which has several unprecedented benefits. Not only are the devices custom 3D-printed and based on body scans of wearers, but they can operate continuously using a combination of wireless power transfer and compact energy storage.

New Class of Human-Powered Bioelectronics

A team of bioengineers has invented a novel soft and flexible self-powered bioelectronic device. The technology converts human body motions — from bending an elbow to subtle movements such as a pulse on one's wrist — into electricity that could be used to power wearable and implantable diagnostic sensors.
