"I think you're on mute." This was the most-used phrase of 2020, according to Human Resources Online.
( Cranfield University ) Cranfield University researchers in partnership with Meditech Gloves, one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality examination and surgical gloves, have shown how energy savings can be made with the development of more sustainable, biodegradable, protein-free, natural rubber gloves.
Metals such as iron and calcium play a crucial role inside the human body, so it's no surprise that bioengineers would like to integrate them into the soft, stretchy materials used to repair skin, blood vessels, lungs and other tissue.
Cementex, the safety tool specialists, announces the availability of its insulating rubber apron, now available with a new belt strap and is ideal for working on or around battery storage systems. The apron is a good choice for technicians who have to reach over energized conductors to perform standard maintenance. The new belt strap allows for easy cinching at the waist to help decrease the risk of the apron dragging across batteries.
Researchers at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, used the liquid crystal elastomer technology to demonstrate a series of micro-tools grown on optical fibers. The 200-micrometer gripers are controlled remotely, without electric wiring or pneumatic tubing, with green light delivered through the fibers - absorbed light energy is directly converted into the gripper jaws' action.
Biological tissues have evolved over millennia to be perfectly optimized for their specific functions.
Imagine a self-repairing rubber, or super-adhesive made entirely from waste materials.
