Tiny, Shapeshifting Robots Could Aid Nanoscale Manufacturing

Tiny, Shapeshifting Robots Could Aid Nanoscale Manufacturing

The sculpture-like objects in Bas Overvelde's laboratory at the Netherlands' Atomic and Molecular Physics (AMOLF) Institute are not as simple as they appear. Made of multiple prism-shaped building blocks, each face connected by flexible hinges, they can easily flip from shapes such as 3-D stars into cylinders, balls, and more.Think of a classic slap bracelet, Overvelde says: a structure that has two stable positions, one straight and one curled up. But his lab's objects can fold along their many hinges to pop into dozens of predictable positions when pressure is applied. Beyond building a...

It could even piggyback the existing work Tesla has done to make heaters for its newest vehicle, the Model Y.The first few Tesla vehicles used an electric cabin heater to replace a traditional fuel vehicle’s reliance on internal combustion engine heat. Trying to find the right kind of heater has been challenging at times for Tesla, which was faced with reinventing the wheel, so to speak. Before now, engines made the heat as a secondary effect of combustion. Tesla’s first...

Elon Musk Tesla Battery Farm Australia

Elon Musk Tesla Battery Farm Australia

It's the bet that saved Australia tens of millions of dollars. The battery backup Elon Musk built to win a bet has saved South Australia tens of millions of dollars. The record-setting "battery" is made of Tesla PowerPacks and helps stabilize the local grid. Rural South Australia experiences bad blackouts each summer. More than two years after winning an electricity bet, Elon Musk’s resulting Australian solar and wind farm is an almost total success. The facility powers rural South Australia, whose population density falls between Wyoming and Alaska, the two least dense U.S. states. In...
