Researchers at NUS have created aerogel that extracts water from air without external power sources. Given that atmospheric water is continuously replenished by the global hydrological cycle, it offers a promising solution for achieving sustainable freshwater production at minimal energy cost.
Somatosensory light-driven robots (SLiR) is an embodied sensory system manufactured using soft thin film. The miniaturized robots exhibit untethered reflex-like stimulus-responsive motility and multi sensing capabilities. This work is selected for ‘Women in Materials Science’ featured article.
To meet the world’s rising energy demands, Associate Professor Ho Ghim Wei is leveraging solar technologies for a brighter and more sustainable future.
A facile and versatile strategy to directly print hydrogels into biomimetic soft robots has been reported by Yin Cheng and Ho et al. Biocompatible alginate rheological modifier of hydrogel allow straightforward manufacturing into arbitrary 3D topologies using direct-ink-write (DIW) 3D printing.
