An electric car that actually goes far?

July 20, 2012 The performance of new lithium-air batteries is nearly unchanged after 100 charge and discharge cycles, which could bode well for their future use in electric vehicles. (credit: (car) Tony Hisgett/Wikimedia; (graph) Adapted from Z. Peng et al./Science) Researchers have made the first stable lithium-air batteries, Science NOW reports. They may one day give electric cars a driving range similar to today’s gas guzzlers. http://www.kurzweilai.net/an-electric-car-that-actually-goes-far?utm_source=KurzweilAI+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=ee51cc3209-UA-946742-1&utm_medium=email

Got A Decade To Spare?

Toward achieving 1 million times increase in computing efficiency July 11, 2012 Magnetoresistive spin-transistor (credit: Joseph S. Friedman et al./Northwestern University) Northwestern University researchers may have found an alternative to CMOS (current computer processor chips) that would allow for highly efficient computer logic circuits that generate much less heat: an entirely new logic circuit family based on magnetic semiconductor devices that could lead to logic circuits up to 1 million times more power-efficient than today’s. http://www.kurzweilai.net/toward-achieving-1-million-times-increase-in-computing-efficiency#comments
