Materials to make hard-wearing, bendable non-conducting substrates for wearables and other flexible electronics are essential for the next generation of integrated devices. In this vein, researchers at the University of Twente have reformulated ceramic materials so that they have the flexibility of paper and the lightness of a polymer, but still retain exceptional high-temperature resistance. The new material has been dubbed flexiramics... Continue Reading Multiple bends won't crack this lightweight, paper-like, flexible ceramic

People's Architecture Office (PAO) has a knack for designing thought-provoking – if impractical – housing ideas. The Chinese firm's latest project, Tubular Living, is probably its wackiest yet and suggests that people make their home in large metal ventilation shafts...
