Quotes

“Advanced materials is one of the eight great technologies of the future with the potential to propel UK growth, " says Universities and Science Minister David Willetts.  "This investment will help us to develop further applications for metamaterials and reap the benefits of advanced materials for the wider UK economy.”"
...laptops become hot, limiting the amount of transistors and computer power which can be put in a chip; thermal transfer could overcome this issue. "If we can manage the power of maths to transfer this concept from electromagnetism to ultimately an equation system that describes the flow of heat then we have a very powerful application" said Professor Stefan Maier, Imperial College London
"Obviously being in hospital has got in the way of that, but I’d like to think I will go back and finish it. At the time being, I’m focused on my recovery."
"Driving represents a common activity in everyday life where the experience and expression of emotions like anger have implications for health and safety. But this can be reduced by environmental factors, including music which is one of the most potent techniques for mood regulation. The goal of this project was to develop the next generation of adaptive music players where the playlist can respond to negative mood states that have implications for health in the long-term."
