Gene therapy altered the electrical properties of the tadpoles' cells, boosting tissue regeneration, with long-term implications for human healing. ... This is important because electrical fields can apparently guide the growth of nerves, such as those in the spine within the tadpole tail. People have shown that cells 'crawl' in an electric field...

Imagine a future in which wireless electricity makes everyday products more convenient, reliable, and environmentally friendly. Cell phones, game controllers, laptop computers, mobile robots, even electric vehicles capable of re-charging themselves without ever being plugged in. Flat screen TV’s and digital picture frames that hang on the wall—without requiring a wire and plug for power. Industrial systems and medical devices made more...

Battery-powered motor scooters are popping up in cities right across China. But in Guilin, they have been given an extra boost by the decision of the local authority to stop issuing licences for conventional motorbikes, which were sullying the city's green reputation with their pollution and noise...

Green cars powered by alternative fuel sources have become more visible on the roads in recent years. One cause could be the introduction of legislation and higher taxes to penalise drivers of gas-guzzling vehicles by governments around the world. But another factor is an increase in the range of eco-friendly cars on offer. These include hybrids with a combination of petrol engines and electric motors, fully battery-powered electric...

Solar thermal energy has the potential to supply a significant fraction of the world’s energy needs if we learn to harness it effectively and to store its energy for use when we have times of high demand. An Australian company has been working on a technology that may be able to do just that. Solar Fusion Power has designed a complete system which can absorb the sunlight during the day and produce continuous, cost competitive, electricity...

Fuel cells - a technology that has been around for more than 100 years - convert fuels such as hydrogen and natural gas into electricity through an electrochemical reaction. The resultant heat generated also warms buildings in gas-boiler-sized boxes known as cogeneration fuel cells.

Minuscule tubes coated with a chemical fuel can act as a power source with 100 times more electrical power by weight than conventional batteries. As these nano-scale "fuses" burn, they drive an electrical current along their length at staggering speeds. The never-before-seen phenomenon could lead to a raft of energy applications...
