More Realistic Simulated Cloth for More Realistic Video Games and Movies

More Realistic Simulated Cloth for More Realistic Video Games and Movies

Computer scientists at the University of California, San Diego, have developed a new model to simulate with unprecedented accuracy on the computer the way cloth and light interact. The new model can be used in animated movies and in video games to make cloth look more realistic.   Existing models are either too simplistic and […]

Electronics Comes to Paper: Paper, Being Light and Foldable, Works Well for Electrically Conducting Structures

Electronics Comes to Paper: Paper, Being Light and Foldable, Works Well for Electrically Conducting Structures

Paper, being a light and foldable raw material, is a cost-efficient and simple means of generating electrically conducting structures.   Paper is becoming a high-tech material. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam-Golm have created targeted conductive structures on paper using a method that is quite simple: with a conventional […]

Faster Than Silicon: Redesigned Material Could Lead to Lighter, Faster Electronics

Faster Than Silicon: Redesigned Material Could Lead to Lighter, Faster Electronics

The same material that formed the first primitive transistors more than 60 years ago can be modified in a new way to advance future electronics, according to a new study.   Chemists at The Ohio State University have developed the technology for making a one-atom-thick sheet of germanium, and found that it conducts electrons more […]
