Lobsters, Hydrogel and Tissue Engineering

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have devised a hydrogel-based substance which imitates the structure of a lobster’s underbelly. The paper, “Strong fatigue-resistant nanofibrous hydrogels inspired by lobster underbelly.”, suggests that the nanofibrous hydrogel-based material has the potential strength and stretch to be used to replace robust tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage.

Drone Technology in Engineering

Drone Technology in Engineering Because engineering and construction are risk aware industries, safety is monitored through judicious regulation, inspection, and upkeep of equipment. Climate change, with the concomitant consequences regarding the loss of ecosystems, extreme weather events, and rising temperatures and sea levels means that we need to find ways to stop releasing carbon into the atmosphere and remove quantities of what is already there to mitigate these effects.
