New class of electronics technology can conform to almost any shape

Instead of using a flat microchip as the light sensor for their new camera, a team of engineers has developed a sensor that is a flexible mesh of wire-connected pixels. The mesh is made from many of the same materials as a standard digital-camera sensor, but has the unique ability to conform to convoluted, irregular surfaces.

Now that's cool: Engineers out to thaw the mysteries of ice

'Ye canna change the laws of physics!' Scotty warned Captain Kirk on Star Trek. But engineers and physicists at the University of Maryland may rewrite one of them. The Third Law of Thermodynamics is on the minds of John Cumings and his research group as they examine the crystal lattice structure of ice and seek to define exactly what happens when it freezes.
