ThermalTech A patented lightweight smart fabric made of 100% stainless steel mesh that is coated with a solar selective coating, ThermalTech could be a boon to makers of athletic gear. The fabric excels at absorbing heat in the form of ultraviolet light, then dispersing it throughout the entire material to dissipate. Imagine athletic gear that keeps you as warm as wool without the bulk and you've got an idea on why companies like Nike might be interested in ThermalTech.

Help Me, Obi-Wan! New Hologram Technology Mimics 'Star Wars'

Princess Leia's holographic plea in the classic film "Star Wars" inspired researchers to work toward a device that could project real-life sci-fi holograms. Now, the futuristic imaging may be one step closer to reality.

Self-Folding of Polymer Sheets  Michael Dickeyfrom North Carolina State University developed a technique where polymer sheets self-fold when exposed to light. Polymer sheets (also known as Shrinky Dinks) were run through a desktop printer to get a pattern of black lines (crease pattern). When the polymer sheets are exposed to light, they automatically fold along the black lines.
