Physicists at the University of California, Berkeley, have built the smallest radio yet - a single carbon nanotube one ten-thousandth the diameter of a human hair that requires only a battery and earphones to tune in to your favorite station.
European researchers looking into bone implants believe that the future could lie with natural plastics which, they claim, can better adapt to the skeleton, thereby eliminating the need for repeated operations.
