Drexel's Microscale 'Transformer' Robots Are Joining Forces to Break Through Blocked Arteries

June 25, 2015

Swarms of microscopic, magnetic, robotic beads could be scrubbing in next to the world's top vascular surgeons--all taking aim at blocked arteries. These microrobots, which look and move like corkscrew-shaped bacteria, are being developed by mechanical engineers at Drexel University as a part of a surgical toolkit being assembled by the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) in South Korea.

Drexel Engineers: To Save Water, Cool Power Plants With Wax

June 23, 2015

The towering plumes of steam emanating from power plant calderas that have come to symbolize the massive and, at times, menacing nature of the energy industry might soon have their natural dissipation into thin air preempted by a figurative one. A team of researchers from Drexel University, in concert with experts from academia and industry, are creating a new technology that replaces the voluminous amounts of steam-producing water used to cool the plants with trillions of tiny wax beads—and could be the end of those fluffy, yet ominous, white clouds.
