Bone membrane inspires fabric with smart stress-strain properties [feedly]


Bone membrane inspires fabric with smart stress-strain properties
// Gizmag Emerging Technology Magazine



Periosteum is a membrane of soft tissue that covers the outer surface of most bones in the body. Consisting of a complex combination of collagen, elastin and other structural proteins, it is an incredibly resilient material that gives bones extra strength under high impacts. Now, for the first time, researchers have mimicked these properties in a "smart" fabric that could serve as the basis for advanced functional materials with applications in everything from safety and transport, to medicine.

// Gizmag Emerging Technology Magazine



We've covered more than a few crowdfunding campaigns for drones in the last few years, but none have garnered quite the fanfare nor the cash of the much-hyped Lily camera drone. Promising autonomous flight and shooting modes after simply being tossed into the air, its makers are set to deliver on neither after today announcing they will be winding down operations.

Airbus Considers More Range, Higher Weights For A330neo

TOULOUSE—Airbus is studying another maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) increase for the Airbus A330neo that will enable the aircraft to fly several hundred miles further.

Both the A330-800 and the -900 are now offered at a 242-ton MTOW, but Airbus is looking at raising it to 245 tons or higher, according to sales chief John Leahy. That would allow for more range. The A330-900 currently has a range of 6,550 nm according to its manufacturer. The smaller A330-800 flies up to 7,500 nm. That compares to 7,355 nm for the 787-8 and 7,635nm for the 787-9.
