nspired by the way lizards are able to stick to almost any surface, University of Massachusetts Amherst researchers have invented a new material called Geckskin that could beat common adhesives like Blu-Tack and sticky tape. The research, headed by Prof Alfred Crosby of the Polymer Science and Engineering Department, is published in an article entitled "Creating Gecko-Like Adhesives for 'Real World' Surfaces" in the Advanced Materials journal.

Recycling of acrylonitrile–butadiene–styrene and high-impact polystyrene from waste computer equipment.

(Phys.org)—A team of researchers working at the University of Bristol in the U.K. has found a way to build supermicelles from simple polymers. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes their 3-step process and the types of supermicells they were able to build. In-Hwan Lee, ...

New Rochelle, NY, March 31, 2016--Combine the principles of weaving with the high-tech properties of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer and the computationally driven process of robotic winding and you get rolyPOLY. The fields of design, architecture, and materials science converged to produce this 20-pound, single-occupant, prototype structure, which is described in an article in 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers

Seahorse’s Armor Gives Engineers Insight Into Robotics Designs The tail of a seahorse can be compressed to about half its size before permanent damage occurs, engineers at the University of California, San Diego, have found. The tail’s exceptional flexibility is due to its structure, made up of bony, armored plates, which slide past each other. Researchers are hoping to use a similar structure to create a flexible robotic arm equipped with muscles made out of polymer, which could be used in…
