Focus, while I display flows ferocious about science, technology, creativity, and innovation. I'm very interested in how all of the above impact culture and society. I believe that the most scientifically literate among us will move society forward at a speed we've never seen before. I also believe that the most creative among us will make that trip forward a fun one. This is my personal blog, filled with wondrous things from across the Universe, which will hopefully inspire you to go change the world, or at least, your seat.
Researchers have cleverly devised a way to make paper that is waterproof, bacterial resistant, and magnetic. By wrapping certain nanoparticles around the fibers of the paper, it’s properties can be changed. The researchers point to using iron oxide nanoparticles to make the paper magnetic, and using silver nanoparticles to repel bacteria. The implications this technology has on the future of food packaging and medical applications are astounding.
