“Hope lies in dreams, in imagination, and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality” – Jonas Salk

Stretching the boundaries of neural implants

Money Quote: ” After the entire fabrication process, what’s left is the transparent fiber with electrically conductive, stretchy nanowire coatings. “It’s really just a piece of rubber, but conductive,” Anikeeva says. The fiber can stretch by at least 20 to 30 percent without affecting its properties, she says.

When Lightspeed Just Isn’t Fast Enough!

Light goes infinitely fast with new on-chip zero-index metamaterial

Best Quote – “Although this infinitely high velocity sounds like it breaks the rule of relativity, it doesn’t. Nothing in the universe travels faster than light carrying information — Einstein is still right about that. But light has another speed, measured by how fast the crests of a wavelength move, known as phase velocity. This speed of light increases or decreases depending on the material it’s moving through.”
