Medusa Drone Fly Dive
MEDUSA is not designed for lethal payloads like Elbit Systems’ LANIUS, but this dual-mode drone, developed by researchers at Imperial College London, can both fly through the air and land on bodies of water to collect samples. There are many practical applications for Multi-Environment Dual robot for Underwater Sample Acquisition (MEDUSA) including monitoring and maintaining offshore infrastructure such as underwater energy pipelines as well as wind turbines.

UMass Biofilm Sweat Electricity
There are passive cooling systems that don’t require electricity, and then this biofilm capable of turning sweat into continuous power. Created by researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, this innovative biofilm is capable of harvesting energy in evaporation and converting it to electricity, thus potentially revolutionizing the world of wearable electronics.
