A Look Back at the 2017 i.Lab Incubator

The i.Lab Incubator, housed at the W.L. Lyons Brown III i.Lab and operated by the University of Virginia Darden School of Business‘ Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, recently wrapped up its intensive, 10-week 2017 program. More than 20 ventures, founded by students from schools across UVA as well as members of the local community, completed the program.

One Step Closer to Lifelike Robots

Researchers at Columbia Engineering have developed a 3D-printable synthetic soft muscle that can lift 1,000 times its own weight. The muscle has intrinsic expansion ability and, unlike previous artificial muscles, it does not require an external compressor or high voltage equipment, signaling a breakthrough in the creation of soft robots that can move independently. The new material also has a strain density – an ability to expand – that is 15 times larger than natural muscle.

Optical and Electrical Bistability Study Sheds Light on Next-Gen High Speed Data Transfer

Today, electrical bistable devices are the foundation of digital electronics, but the bandwidth of these electronic computers is limited by the signal delay of time constants important to electronic logic operations. In an attempt to mitigate these problems, scientists have considered the development of an optical digital computer. This week, in the Journal of Applied Physics, researchers present their findings regarding the optical and electrical bistability of a single transistor operated at room temperature.
