The dark side of electronic waste recycling

– [Jim] They had a place where they’d store it right under our noses. They just thought they could get away with it forever, and they could have if it hadn’t been for those trackers. (Jim laughs) – [Reporter] Right now, you’re watching this on an electronic device. Do you ever think about where it’ll […]

How batteries work – Adam Jacobson

You probably know the feeling. Your phone utters its final plaintive “bleep” and cuts out in the middle of your call. In that moment, you may feel more like throwing your battery across the room than singing its praises, but batteries are a triumph of science. They allow smartphones and other technologies to exist without […]

Could Magnonics Spark the Extinction of Electronics?

Electronics work by shuffling electrons through circuits and logic gates to perform calculations, but in doing so they have to overcome resistance, which wastes energy and generates heat. So instead of forcing electrons to push each other along, what if we just made them do the wave? Electrons have a negative charge; it’s a fundamental […]
