Researchers develop a path to liquid solar cells that can be printed onto surfaces
Scientists at USC have developed a potential pathway to cheap, stable solar cells made from nanocrystals so small they can exist as a liquid ink and be painted or printed onto clear surfaces.
From ventriloquist's dummies to turkey dinners, 3-D printing is heading home
When the ventriloquist Jeff Dunham wanted to make a new dummy for his show, he designed the character's head on his home computer and then printed it out in his workshop.
The social life of ink
Contrary to popular belief, the true genius of Johannes Gutenburg was not the printing press for which he is most often given credit. Both the Chinese and the Koreans had come up with versions of the press ...
Scientists learn how to 'out run damage' with imaging technique
Over the decades X-ray crystallography has been fundamental in the development of many scientific fields. The method has revealed the structure and function of many biological molecules, including vitamins, drugs, proteins ...

Hydrodynamics of writing with ink
For millennia, writing has been the preferred way to convey information and knowledge from one generation to another. We first developed the ability to write on clay tablets with a point, and then settled ...
Silicon ink is spot on, NREL experiments show
Ink can cause a mess, but the Silicon Ink developed by Innovalight behaves itself so well that when it is added to a solar cell it doesn't clump or spill, instead it boosts the cell's power by a startling, ...
Smartphones help world's winemakers foil fraudsters
