Teenager Builds Homemade Nuclear Fusion Reactor

If somebody told you that a teenager built a nuclear fusion reactor in his garage, it would take quite some convincing until you believe...

New Mitochondria Fuel Cells Could Generate Electricity From Sugar or Fats

Mitochondria, also called "the cells' powerhouses", may one day replace batteries as we know them. Scientists from the University of Missouri invented and developed a new fuel cell based on these also called "organelles" (the internal organs of cells). The fuel cell is able to feed on sugars and fats, just like mitochondria in the organisms do.

How To Make a Low Temperature Differential (LTD) Stirling Engine

LTD stirling engines are interesting. They harvest the temperature difference of the environment versus a cold object, and using this they power some pumps. I...

Vibration-Powered Magnetostrictive Generator Invented By Japanese Researcher

Vibrations can drive your watch and other small appliances more easily, as one researcher from the Kanazawa University in Japan has developed a possible replacement for button batteries. His device works on vibrations and could one day power even bigger stuff, if put in a serial configuration.
