  • 13-05-2021   Interactive typeface for digital text Researchers have developed a computer font that adapts its appearance based on the user's interaction with the text. ''AdaptiFont'' measures a user's reading speed and interactively changes the font's shape seamlessly and continuously to allow the user to read text more easily. By employing an artificial intelligence algorithm, new personalized fonts are generated on the fly in such a way that they increase an individual reader's reading speed.
  • 12-05-2021   A long-lasting, stable solid-state lithium battery Researchers have designed a stable, lithium-metal solid state battery that can be charged and discharged at least 10,000 times - far more cycles than have been previously demonstrated -- at a high current density. The battery technology could increase the lifetime of electric vehicles to that of the gasoline cars - 10 to 15 years - without the need to replace the battery. With its high current density, the battery could pave the way for electric vehicles that can fully charge within 10 to 20 minutes.
  • 12-05-2021   Brain computer interface turns mental handwriting into text on screen Researchers have, for the first time, decoded the neural signals associated with writing letters, then displayed typed versions of these letters in real time. They hope their invention could one day help people with paralysis communicate.
  • 12-05-2021   Brand new physics of superconducting metals refuted by physicists Scientists have demonstrated that other physicists' recent 'discovery' of the field effect in superconductors is nothing but hot electrons after all. A team of scientists have found new and compelling evidence that the observation of the field effect in superconducting metals by another group can be explained by a simple mechanism involving the injection of the electrons, without the need for novel physics.
  • 12-05-2021   AI learns to type on a phone like humans To really understand how people type on touchscreens, researchers have created the first artificial intelligence model that predicts how people move their eyes and fingers while typing. The AI model can simulate how a human user would type any sentence on any keyboard design. It makes errors, detects and corrects them, and also predicts how people adapt to a new auto-correction system or keyboard design.
  • 12-05-2021   Gold leaf could help diagnose viral infections in low-resource settings Gold leaf - gold metal hammered into thin sheets - is used by artists and crafters to gild picture frames, artwork and clothing. Despite its luxurious appearance, the material is affordable and available at most craft stores. Now, researchers have developed gold leaf electrodes that, in combination with a CRISPR-based assay, could sensitively detect human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA in human samples. The method also could be modified to diagnose other viral infections.
