The experiment shows 3D bioprinting could be used to create body parts for patients who need them. Somewhere in Sweden, a few lab mice have human cartilage cells living and growing within their bodies.
The "flow" battery could be used in solar cells that store their own power. Scientists from IBM and ETH Zurich university have built a tiny "flow" battery that has the dual benefit of supplying power chips
It could power a fuel-cell car while capturing CO2. Here's the dilemma with hydrogen: fueling your car with the stuff is faster than charging an EV, but making and distributing it is inefficient and polluting.
