The new coating will get rid of fingerprints on the touch screen

And since we are talking about the touch screen and newtechnologies allow us to solve old problems, I just can not ignore the development of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for PolymerResearch. They managed to create a coating that makes the screen is unresponsive to the bold footsteps of his fingers.

As a basis covering was used by conventional carbon black andsilica. The fact that black has excellent hydrophobic and oleophobicproperties (in other words, repels water and oils), and silicon dioxide useful to keep a layer of soot particles together and allowthem to remove the color by heat treatment.

Paper books are quickly dealt positions, giving way to audiobooks, and electronic versions for book readers. And as a man who lovesreading, I think one of the major shortcomings of the existing book readers (with screen-based electronic ink, or mirasol) the need forextra lighting for reading in the dark. And Flex Lighting offers an elegant solution to this problem.

Novelty is a thin transparent film that could evenly distribute the lightof a pair of LEDs. Thus, we are able to integrate into virtually anylighting display with minimal additional cost of energy.
