3D printed scaffolds to support bone regeneration in horses
In a collaborative project scientists have made 3D printed scaffolds that can be used to turn induced pluripotent stem cells into bone in the laboratory.
New legislation needed to regulate police facial recognition tech
Facial recognition technology, being trialled by two major police forces in Britain, should be subjected to more rigorous testing and transparency, according to new research.
Revolutionising animated characters' speech
Animating the speech of characters such as Elsa and Mowgli has been both time-consuming and costly. But now computer programmers have identified a way of creating natural-looking animated speech that can be generated in real-time as voice actors deliver their lines.
Rotating molecules create a brighter future
Scientists have discovered a group of materials which could pave the way for a new generation of high-efficiency lighting, solving a quandary which has inhibited the performance of display technology for decades.
Robotic ocean gliders aid study of melting polar ice
Using robotic ocean gliders, researchers have now found that swirling ocean eddies, similar to atmospheric storms, play an important role in transporting warm waters to the Antarctic coast—a discovery that will help the scientific community determine how rapidly the ice is melting and, as a result, how quickly ocean levels will rise.
Clean energy bio batteries a step closer
Researchers from are a step closer to enhancing the generation of clean energy from bacteria.
New graphene-type material created
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have created a new material, related to graphene, which has the potential to improve transistors used in electronic devices.
Breakthrough in race to create 'bio-batteries'
Proteins on the surface of bacteria can produce an electric current by simply touching a mineral surface.
'Rock-breathing' bacteria could generate electricity
A discovery by scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) could contribute to the development of systems that use domestic or agricultural waste to generate clean electricity.
