  1. A team of mechanical engineers at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore has found a way to electronically control cockroaches without injuring them. In their paper published in the journal npj Flexible Electronics, the group describes the new technology they used to remotely control the cockroaches and the benefits of doing so.
  2. In a study published in Engineering, researchers have developed a revolutionary method for data storage using DNA. The paper titled "Engineering DNA Materials for Sustainable Data Storage Using a DNA Movable-Type System" introduces a novel approach that utilizes DNA fragments, referred to as "DNA movable types," for data writing, thereby eliminating the need for costly and environmentally hazardous DNA synthesis.
  3. In virtual meetings, it's easy to keep people from talking over each other. Someone just hits mute. But for the most part, this ability doesn't translate easily to recording in-person gatherings. In a bustling cafe, there are no buttons to silence the table beside you.
  4. As research into photonic computing progresses, scientists seek to optimize the performance of optical computing devices by making purpose-specific changes to their design. A team led by Bo Wu and Shaojie Liu at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China designed and tested a kind of Mach-Zehnder interferometer mesh that is more efficient at performing real-valued matrix-vector multiplication.
  5. A research team led by Professor Sanghyun Park from the Department of Robotics and Mechanical Engineering at DGIST announced that they have developed a few-shot learning model capable of accurately classifying brain waves using a small amount of information.
  6. The semiconductor industry today is working to respond to a threefold mandate: increasing computing power, decreasing chip sizes and managing power in densely packed circuits.
  7. 3D printing can produce highly complex shapes. But printing ceramic objects with the help of a laser is a more difficult challenge. Now researchers at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI have for the first time taken tomograms revealing what happens at microscopic level during this fabrication process. The findings will help improve this very promising technology.
  8. Protonic ceramic electrochemical cells (PCECs) are emerging energy technologies containing electrolytes based on proton-conducting oxides and oxygen-ion conductors. These devices could contribute to the ongoing shift towards sustainable energy solutions by aiding the global production of green hydrogen and electrical power.
  9. As 3D printers have become cheaper and more widely accessible, novice makers within a rapidly growing community are fabricating their own objects. To do this, many of these amateur artisans access free, open-source repositories of user-generated 3D models that they download and fabricate on their 3D printers.
  10. Devices that can detect, track and decode movements in their surroundings can have countless valuable applications in fields ranging from robotics to health care, the entertainment industry, sports, and more. Wearable sensors can be particularly effective in detecting and recording the movements of human users, as they can be strategically placed and may pick up subtler movements with greater precision.
