Complete design of a silicon quantum computer chip unveiled

Research teams all over the world are exploring different ways to design a working computing chip that can integrate quantum interactions. Now, UNSW engineers believe they have cracked the problem, reimagining the silicon microprocessors we know to create a complete design for a quantum computer chip that can be manufactured using mostly standard industry processes and components.

Amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's and diabetes: Novel leads for inhibitors

When proteins change their structure and clump together, formation of amyloid fibrils and plaques may occur. Such ‘misfolding’ and ‘protein aggregation’ processes damage cells and cause diseases such as Alzheimer’s and type 2 diabetes. A team of scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) headed by Professor Aphrodite Kapurniotu have now developed molecules that suppress protein aggregation and could pave the way for new treatments to combat Alzheimer’s, type 2 diabetes and other cell-degenerative diseases.

Ekocycle 3D printer uses recycled plastic bottles as component in filament cartridges

Cubify has announced that it will be selling a $1199 printer later this year called the Ekocycle Cube 3D Printer-it will be using recycled PET plastic bottles as one component in its filament cartridges-a single cartridge will hold the equivalent of three 20oz. bottles, making up 25 percent of its content.
