Top Emerging Tech to Watch in 2021

Top Emerging Tech to Watch in 2021
Following a turbulent 2020, organisations should re-visit their outlook on which emerging tech innovations will be key for future opportunities. Tech research firm, Lux Research, has published its latest annual report on the top tech innovations that will have the biggest impact over the next decade, based on expert insight and proprietary data science tools. 12 key overall technologies are identified in the new report, which are expected to reshape the world. Additionally, this year's report ranks the top five technologies across five key industries: chemicals and materials, automotive, food and agriculture, electronics and IT, and energy. The top three...

Physicists Build Circuit that Generates Clean, Limitless Power from Graphene

Physicists Build Circuit that Generates Clean, Limitless Power from Graphene
A research team at the University of Arkansas has successfully created a circuit capable of capturing the thermal motion of graphene, and turning it into an electrical current. “An energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices or sensors,” said Paul Thibado, lead researcher in the discovery. The recently published findings prove a theory, developed three years ago, that freestanding graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms – ripples and buckles in a way that shows promise for energy harvesting. The theory of harvesting energy from graphene...
