Could the Teeny Tiny Tic Tac Lightbulb Be The Light Of The Future?

 

Sometimes smaller is better, if it performs better than the rest. No I’m not talking about men. I’m talking about a tiny little light bulb from Luxim, a Sunnyvale, California Company.

Company Promises $1-Per-Gallon Ethanol at US Pumps

If all goes to plan, ethanol may be appearing at US pumps at $1 per gallon, according to an article at Energy-Daily.com.


Tornado Power - A Future Energy Source?

Retired scientist Louis Michaud has plans to generate tornadoes near power plants that could provide a 40% increase in the plants' power output. If the concept works, it could dramatically cut down on the need for building new power plants, instead creating energy from the waste heat of existing plants.


Researchers Creating Camera With 12,616 Lenses

Researchers from Stanford are developing a camera with thousands of tiny pixels, where clumps of 256 pixels act like an independent lens. The lenses can capture images from different angles, producing a high-res, 3-D "depth map" where every object in the image is in focus.


Botox is Answer to Excess Salivation

Researchers Pinpoint Gene That Spreads Breast Cancer

Researchers have found that a single gene is responsible for controlling more than a thousand other genes that together cause breast cancer to spread to the rest of the body. Identifying this mastermind gene could enable patients to better understand treatment options, and potentially stop the spread of breast cancer.

Test-tube Baby Whales? Cow-Whale Hybrids?

Japan's annual hunt for hundreds of whales under the guise of "scientific research" has long been castigated as a sham. Now, a new analysis of published research papers has exposed a long-running litany of frivolous, esoteric, even bizarre experimentation including "attempts at cross-breeding cows with whales".

Bionic Eye Could Restore Sight to the Blind

For the past 20 years, researchers working for the Boston Retinal Implant Project have been developing a bionic eye implant that could restore sight for individuals who have age-related blindness.
