The printed material managed to cling to the rounded surface and convert light into electricity.Eventually, a scaled-up version of the device could restore vision to the blind, or even improve the vision of sighted people.
    Wow,thats crazy

    More innovations tex as you seem interested more than most other members. Sorry so many of these are Aussie based.. not being biased mate.

    Venetoclax is a potent new anti-cancer drug, co-developed and trialled in Australia, and based on a landmark research discovery made at Australia's famed Walter and Eliza Hall Institute For medical Research.

    Clinical trials of Venetoclax have delivered remission in patients with an advanced form of leukaemia, for whom conventional treatment options had been exhausted. The super drug's latest success is against against advanced breast cancer.

    Australia's Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health may have found a way to reverse severe brain injury in stroke victims. The work is being carried out by Dr Carli Roulston using the Institute's own drug Fasudil. Watch this space.

    Australian scientists from the Australian National and Macquarie Universities will spearhead the design of an ambitious $32 million telescopic optics system which will produce images of space three times sharper than the Hubble Space Telescope.

    The Aussie boffins will lead the design phase of a new adaptive-optics system, called MAVIS, for one of the eight-metre telescopes at the ground-based Very Large Telescope facility in Chile.

    Currently, bubbles of hot and cold air mixing in the atmosphere distort light waves and blur images captured from telescopes, producing a phenomenon exactly like "looking at the horizon through a desert," says ANU Associate Professor Francois Rigaut, who is leading the international consortium


    The new technology will counteract this and produce images 10 to 20 times clearer than images captured without the technology, and three times more detailed than images captured by the Hubble telescope.

    Australian Green technology company Star 8 Solar is leading the push for a less polluted South East Asia with their innovative solar powered transport. Since its inception in 2013 the company has built solar powered vehicles for Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines and Thailand, some South American and African markets. I have travelled in most of these Asian countries and I can tell you first hand that massive pollution from burning fossil fuel from mass transit vehicles such as Jeepneys and Tuk Tuks is appalling and very unhealthy. It is also a downside to tourism in these countries.

    Reassuring to know that research in the fight against cancer goes on across the globe and that Australian science is at the forefront. Perhaps this would of been better in the fighting cancer forum?

    I'm all for any innovation that contributes to a cleaner environment, we are lucky here in Blighty as we have relatively clean air. Ofcourse solar powered transportation would not and could not work in a country that is notorious for rain and cloud for 51 weeks of the year, plus ofcourse sunlight is free and that would not sit well within the British taxation system. That said electric cars are growing in popularity so who knows where we may be in a few more years?

    The very large telescope facility, i love the "does what it says on the tin" mentality. As exciting as space research may be i do look around sometimes and think how better spent all that money may be. Scary to think for example that a country with so much poverty as India has its own space programme, dont get me wrong i understand why space exploration is a good thing but surely saving our own planet and humanity should be paramount to searching out its origins

    I agree about priority of saving our green planet. There will always be people that want to explore far away regions. It is the human DNA. India used to have a lot of poverty but she now boasts the worlds largest middle class if not mistaken.

    yes I notioned that after posting. I will transfer it.
