Scientists at EPFL in Switzerland have found a way to turn liquid metal, an alloy of gold and gallium, into a circuit that is flexible and can be stretched up to four times its original size.
Generally electronic circuits are very sensitive to bending and twisting because they are made from brittle metals, this can therefore lead to problems in several applications in the industry. The possibility of flexible electronic circuits could potentially solve a lot of these woes, and hopefully make for more reliable electronic products in the future.

The demand for more bandwidth on existing connections has been increasing rapidly the past few years and an explosion of new services depend, more then ever before, on a constant connection and higher amounts of data. Existing connection methods is becoming bottlenecks, and the cost of replacing them is starting to hold back development.
Now a new approach to understanding a basic concept in graph theory, known as “vertex connectivity,” could lead to future communications protocols that pushes as much bandwidth as possible from existing networks solutions.
Nokia this week announced the new In-Location Alliance that will be working on the innovation and promotion of a new standard-based short-range wireless technology, that will make it possible to locate objects or positions indoors with extremely high accuracy, using mobile devices.
