Researchers Breathe New Life into Paper Books with the Magic Bookmark

Researchers Breathe New Life into Paper Books with the Magic Bookmark

Researchers have developed a new, cost-effective, ecological solution for augmenting the printed page with rich, up-to-date digital content. The development overcomes one of the most significant advantages e-books have over paper books, helping paper maintain its strong position in its competition with electronic media.

A Dissolvable Smartwatch Makes for Easier Electronics Recycling

A Dissolvable Smartwatch Makes for Easier Electronics Recycling

Small electronics, including smartwatches and fitness trackers, aren't easily dismantled and recycled. So when a new model comes out, most users send the old devices into hazardous waste streams. To simplify small electronics recycling, researchers have developed a two-metal nanocomposite for circuits that disintegrates when submerged in water. They demonstrated the circuits in a prototype transient device — a functional smartwatch that dissolved within 40 hours.

New Soft Electronics Don't Break Even When Punctured

New Soft Electronics Don't Break Even When Punctured

Want a smartphone that stretches, takes damage, and still doesn't miss a call? A team of researchers has created a new type of soft electronics, paving the way for devices that are self-healing, reconfigurable, and recyclable. These skin-like circuits are soft and stretchy, sustain numerous damage events under load without losing electrical conductivity, and can be recycled to generate new circuits at the end of a product's life.

Recycling Next-Generation Solar Panels Fosters Green Planet

Recycling Next-Generation Solar Panels Fosters Green Planet

Tossing worn-out solar panels into landfills may soon become electronics waste history. Designing a recycling strategy for a new, forthcoming generation of photovoltaic solar cells - made from metal halide perovskites, a family of crystalline materials with structures like the natural mineral calcium titanate - will add a stronger dose of environmental friendliness to a green industry.
