An Untethered, Globally Controllable MEMS Micro-robot

We present a steerable, electrostatic, untethered, MEMS micro-robot, with dimensions of 60 µm by 250 µm by 10 µm. This micro-robot is 1 to 2 orders of magnitude smaller in size than previous micro-robotic systems. The device consists of a curved, cantilevered steering arm, mounted on an untethered scratch drive actuator. These two components are […]

Nano Solar

Nano-solar — This is a company that as the potential to change the world. It has developed proprietary technology that makes it possible to simply roll-print solar cells that require only 1/100th as thick an absorber as a silicon-wafer cell (yet deliver similar performance and durability). It has so far raised over $1Bn US and […]

Nanotechnology Smart Surface Treatments

This cork was treated with one of our Nanotechnolgy Smart Surface Treatments. There are millions of tiny structures attached to each molecule of the cork grown from self- embling nano-particles. Nanotechnology Smart Surface Treatments work by way of science not polymers. Duration : 0:0:15

Respirocytes: An Artificial Red Blood Cell Replacement

Animation of a respirocyte (an artificial red blood cell) being injected into the bloodstream. We created the animation for the PBS / Devillier Donegan production “Beyond Human.” It has gone on to win the IMM Computational Nanotechnology Prize (Simulation), has appeared in lectures by AI pioneer Ray Kurzweil and nanotechnology pioneers Robert Freitas, David Forrest […]
