            An article titled “E-whiskers: Highly sensitive tactile sensors developed for robotics and other applications" by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory was published on Science Daily on January 21st 2014. This article discusses the potential benefits of using extremely sensitive, mechanical whiskers as a means to better understand certain environments.  This idea is taken from the hypothesis that whiskers on animals, such as cats, are extremely sensitive, and that similarly the mechanical whiskers could be used to create better sensors.

          There has been a new invention recently in the USA. Some researchers from the Virginia Technology College of Agriculture and Life Sciences have created a new kind of battery: a sugar battery. The sugar-powered battery could replace the traditional lithium-ion batteries that have been used for decades. The scientists who created it claim that this new technology can store 10 times more energy than traditional equivalent size batteries found in smartphones. Moreover, the sugar batteries are cheaper, refillable and environment friendly, as they are biodegradable.
