Concrete is the second most-consumed product in the world, after water, but the material is prone to cracking and wear, which is also a problem. However, it becomes difficult when it comes to repairing damaged parts. In 2010, a student at the University of Rhode Island created smart concrete that automatically heals the cracks that form. There are sodium silicate capsules in the concrete, which break when cracks form.
Carbon nanotubes are formed when larger particles combine with millions of smaller particles, increasing the surface area of the bulk particles. It is light, strong and strong. Can be combined with building materials such as wood, metal, concrete and others. Sensors can be added to this material to monitor voltage and voltage changes.
Scientists are trying to create a material that is strong and transparent. In their recent search, they have come up with transparent aluminum, a material that has all the properties of aluminum but is crystal clear like glass. The material is named ALON and its manufacture requires a long process of molding, heating and cooling.
Aerated concrete is very helpful in cleaning water from roads when it rains. It consists of 15 to 35% grain and sand, which takes up a lot of space, so when water collects on it, it seeps in and then flows from there into the sewer. This technique is very effective and reliable.
Airgel is a light substance, even lighter than air, but retains an intact and indestructible form. Airgel is almost fifteen times heavier than air. This removes the liquid part of the gel, leaving only air. It has super-insulating properties and is therefore used in various fields.
Temperature Reactive Plate
Now, when I say that every time you touch the tiles in your living room or living room they change color to match your body temperature, it seems impossible, but one company has made it possible. It coats a thermoelectric paint on these decorative glasses which animates them when they sense a temperature difference. It is shiny black in color at normal temperatures but becomes light or dark to the touch.
Build a swarm of robots
We all know the power of termites and how these creatures build such structures when they are the size of a grain. Scientists have built a four-legged robot capable of building solid walls by laying bricks and stacking them on top of each other to make the structure stronger. They have sensors to detect various changes in their surroundings.
With a 3D printer you can make everything yourself, it just has to fill the machine with the desired design and the printer does its job to give the user the desired result. It will be very useful in the future as it helps to minimize costs and work accurately with 100% accuracy.
Roads have also gotten smarter of late, as a New Zealand company is designing a road that will serve as a charger for all electric cars. The technology is wireless and appears to be the future of smart infrastructure.
Build from CO2
Institute researchers have discovered a technology that modifies yeast; This is used to convert CO2 into solids. This will be a technology that can be used to convert harmful gases into something useful and allow us to control the levels of CO2 in our atmosphere.
