Energy From Air

Engineers at University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed a method to generate electricity from air using two porous nanofilms that create an imbalance of charge between water droplets. Stacking this air-gen device could allow the technology to scale up to the kilowatt level of electricity generation.

Near Silent Drone Delivery

The autonomous drone delivery company Zipline released details of their impressive new delivery platform. A whisper quiet drone with specially designed propellers based on hummingbirds hovers overhead and lowers a shuttlecraft looking storage box that uses its own propeller fans to guide its descent to the ground, where it opens a hatch and delivers your package. Zipline already deliver medical suppliers across Rwanda as part of the 600,000 deliveries they have made so far. Check out the Irish connection at 34:30 in their latest keynote.
