LLNL Researchers Develop New Class of 3D PRINTED METAMATERIALS that Strengthen “On Demand” – Applications for armor that responds on impact; car seats that reduce whiplash and NextGen Neck braces
This unique class is the next step forward in metamaterials that can be tuned “on-the-fly” to achieve desired properties, and applied to make intuitive objects: e.g. armor that responds on impact; car seats that reduce whiplash; and next generation neck braces.
Artificial synapses made from Zinc-Oxide nanowires – ideal candidate for use in building bioinspired “neuromorphic” processors
” …. Systems with neuromorphic chips that imitate the way the human brain works offer significant advantages. These types of computers work in a decentralised way, having at their disposal a multitude of processors, which, like neurons in the brain, are connected to each other by networks. If a processor breaks down, another can take over its function.
What is more, just like in the brain, where practice leads to improved signal transfer, a bioinspired processor should have the capacity to learn.”
There is a lot more new technology beyond antimicrobial nanoparticles coming from the field of nano-fabrics. Other desirable clothing characteristics that could be achieved with nanotechnology include self-cleaning fabrics, water-repelling textiles, and clothing that can reduce odors by chemically changing the compounds that cause bad odor.2 These innovations would take advantage of nano- specific properties, particularly the high surface area per volume ratio of nano-sized materials that increase the exposure of active surfaces to the surrounding environment.
