How to shut a drone up with Phonix

How to shut a drone up with Phonix

Last month we featured an article about Dotterel Technologies using Phonix nanofibre in their drone propeller shrouds. Dotterel Technologies were awarded the NAB 2016 Most Innovative Product Award in Las Vegas.   They’ve been making headlines again, with a feature in www.insideunmannedsystems.com. Here’s an excerpt from the article: Nanofiber Shrouds Dotterel believes it has a solution. It’s […]

Keep rollin’, rollin’, rollin’

Keep rollin’, rollin’, rollin’

Nanofibre is technical stuff. It’s a miracle of modern science, made using our thoroughly modern, proprietary Sonic Electrospinning method, by scientists (that’s us) in white coats. Nanotechnology is associated with phrases like ‘cutting-edge’. But do you know what? At the end of the day, not under an Electron Microscope, it’s amazingly ordinary looking rolled goods. […]

Cool article on Phys.org –  fabrics clean themselves with sunlight

Here’s an interesting piece of nanonews from researchers in Melbourne, Australia, who have developed a way of growing nanostructures on fabric that degrade organic matter when exposed to sunlight. Here’s part of the article: A spot of sunshine is all it could take to get your washing done, thanks to pioneering nano research into self-cleaning […]
