New Tech Keeps Your Smart Phone Charged for 30 Percent Longer

New technology developed at The Ohio State University makes cell phone batteries last up to 30 percent longer on a single charge. The patented circuitry converts some of the radio signals emanating from a phone into direct current (DC) power, which then charges the phone’s battery.

New Computational Technique Advances Color 3D Printing Process

Columbia Engineering professor Changxi Zheng has developed a technique that enables hydrographic printing, a widely used industrial method for transferring color inks on a thin film to the surface of 3D objects, to color these surfaces with the most precise alignment ever attained. His new computational method, which simulates the printing process and predicts color film distortion during hydrographic immersion, generates a colored film that guarantees exact alignment of the surface textures to the object.
