Long-theorized new form of matter, excitonium, finally discovered

An artist's rendition of excitonium, made up of excitations (yellow) moving through an otherwise ordered solid ...

Physicists from the University of Illinois have discovered a new form of matter called excitonium. This condensate, made up of excitons, was first theorized almost 50 years ago, and although evidence of this form of matter has been observed in that time it was difficult to be sure of what was happening. Now, the Illinois researchers have found a "smoking gun" that they claim is the first definitive proof that excitonium exists.

Stretchable fabric battery could power wearables with sweat

The twistable, stretchable textile-based battery developed at Binghamton University uses the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa as a ...

The bacteria-powered batteries of electrical engineer Seokheun Choi have taken on a number of interesting forms, including matchbooks, folding paper and ninja stars. For the first time, the Binghamton University researcher has now woven his innovative fuel cells into a flexible and stretchable piece of fabric that could one day power wearable electronics through our body's own bacteria.

All downhill from here: Has the human race peaked?

A study of 120 years worth of historical data suggest we've reached the biological limits of ...

Every four years, the world turns its attention to the Olympics to see competitors go "faster, higher, stronger." Additionally, average human height and life expectancy have increased significantly over the past couple of hundred years. But the human body obviously has biological limits, with a review of 120 years of historical records now suggesting they may have already been reached – and if we aren't careful they could start going backwards.
