DNA to Face, a new method of facial recognition

Nano-Camera, the size of a grain of salt

Stretchable and Washable Batteries, may soon power a wearable electronics boom

Clarus fibers, cotton without the shedding plastic microfibers

Tufted Rugs, the handmade craze du jour

Gas Marbles, bubbles that last up to 465 days

IZ Metal, a three-dimensional paint for tattooing your car

Contactless Thermal Drilling Robot, cuts through the hardest rocks on Earth
