Local Colleges’ Valedictorians Make the Grade

It’s that time of year again when college students don their caps and gowns, move their tassels from right to left, and toss their hats high in the air in celebration of ended phase of their lives and moving onto the next. For these graduates at local universities, hard work has paid off in...

Metal composite floats on water

RESEARCHERS have created a new metal matrix composite so light that it floats on water while retaining its strength and heat resistance. The team, from Deep Springs Technology and the New York University (NYU) Polytechnic School of Engineering, made the composite from a magnesium alloy matrix...

NYU Researchers Develop Rugged Composite Lighter Than Water

A team of researchers from Deep Springs Technology (DST) and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering have developed the first lightweight metal matrix syntactic foam. The matrix composite, made with a magnesium alloy and silicon carbide hollow spheres, can float on water and withstand thousands...

Artists take residence in Times Square

When people imagine an artist residency, they usually picture an idyllic, isolated studio in the woods. A new programme in Times Square offers artists a very different setting for creative contemplation: one of the world’s most famous—and crowded—tourist attractions. The year-long...

The metal that can float on water: Radical new material could lead to 'indestructible' warships and ultralight cars

Researchers have demonstrated a new type of metal so light it can float on water. The radical new material, called a metal matrix composite, was developed with the US Army. A boat made of such lightweight composites will not sink despite damage to its structure. The radical new material, called a...

Unsinkable boats now closer to reality

Boats of the future may not sink despite damage to their structure, thanks to a new light weight composite material developed by researchers from Deep Springs Technology ( DST) and the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering, including one of Indian-origin. Researchers said a boat...

A metal composite that will float your boat

Researchers have demonstrated a new metal matrix composite that is so light that it can float on water. A boat made of such lightweight composites will not sink despite damage to its structure. The new material also promises to improve automotive fuel economy because it combines light weight with...

BotFactory Wins 2015 MakerCon Launch Pad Competition

MakerCon’s Launch Pad competition culminated Tuesday in a grand prize awarded to Brooklyn-based startup BotFactory and their desktop circuit printer Squink. With Squink, BotFactory is hoping to simplify and streamline electronic prototyping by offering a single machine capable of printing...

Kids Put in Danger by Parents' Online Oversharing

Parents will do just about anything to keep their children safe. Ironically, parents may also be the primary reason their children are vulnerable online. A new study suggests that parents' social-media postings can put young children at risk, due to what seem like fairly innocuous activities....
