The drone industry is witnessing a revolution with the advent of gecko-inspired adhesives and butterfly-like wings. These drones can now perch anywhere, fly like champions, and conquer tough conditions. Gecko-inspired adhesives use van der Waals forces to provide an adhesive force between the adhesive and a substrate. They permit attachment and detachment with very low forces and without highly constrained kinematics for approach and departure. Butterfly-like wings can vary their shapes as freely as birds’ wings, which could have advantages for small aircraft in built environments. These innovations are opening up a whole new world of possibilities for drone technology.
A distributed information technology (IT) architecture known as “edge computing” processes client data as close to the original source as feasible at the network’s edge.
Sunflowers don’t exactly “see” the sun in the way humans do with eyes, but they exhibit a fascinating behavior known as heliotropism. In the bud stage, young sunflowers face east in the morning to catch the first rays of the rising sun. As the day progresses, they slowly track the sun across the sky, following […]
Researchers achieved a breakthrough in bladder cancer by identifying novel biomarkers that detect the disease at an early stage. They utilized advanced genomic techniques to pinpoint genetic mutations linked to bladder cancer. Additionally, innovative immunotherapies targeting specific molecular pathways exhibited promising results in clinical trials, enhancing treatment efficacy and patient outcomes. This multifaceted approach has […]
