    An exotic material called gallium nitride (GaN) is poised to become the next semiconductor for power electronics, enabling much higher efficiency than silicon. In 2013, the Department of Energy (DOE) dedicated approximately half of a $140 million research institute for power electronics to GaN research, citing its potential to reduce worldwide energy consumption. Now MIT spinout Cambridge Electronics Inc. (CEI) has announced a line of GaN transistors and power electronic circuits that promise to cut energy usage in data centers, electric cars, and consumer devices by 10 to 20 percent…

  • How do you hack health care?

    Jay London | MIT Alumni Association
    20 Jul 2015 | 1:41 pm
    MIT doesn’t have a medical school, so it might seem unusual that so many students, researchers, and alumni are making a real-world impact in health care and medicine. But those two fields are rapidly evolving, and the need for MIT’s mindset of technology-focused solutions has never been greater. “MIT is kind of like Switzerland — it’s neutral ground,” says Lina Colucci, a PhD candidate in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Program. “You can’t get a medical degree from MIT, but it’s filled with designers, developers, and engineers. And everyone in the medical…

    In a world with constant streams of media covering everything from Hollywood to local news, research rarely gets a chance to tell its story. But on July 15, research leaders gathered at the National Press Club at the “All Things Research” media roundtable to tell stories of exciting opportunities on the horizon. They spoke of exploration beyond our solar system, advanced materials to enable clean and abundant fusion energy, the development of drought resistance plants to ensure a secure food supply, optical technologies to detect cancer, and more.

  • Toward cheaper water treatment

    Rob Matheson | MIT News Office
    15 Jul 2015 | 8:59 pm
    Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” produces a lot of wastewater. Drilling one well requires millions of gallons of water that’s injected into the ground to loosen rocks and release oil. While some is reused, much of the produced water is discarded into deep injection wells, and clean water is purchased again and again. But MIT spinout Gradiant Corporation is working toward making fracking a water-neutral process, by making water reuse more economical. Founded by Anurag Bajpayee SM ’08, PhD ’12, and Prakash Govindan PhD ’12, Gradiant has developed cost-effective systems to treat…

    27 Jul 2015 | 12:21 pm
    We all have those items that hang around our homes for months or years that collect dust untouched. Sometimes, however, we develop a sense of attachment to those items, and just don't want to see them discarded. Trying to sell pre-loved items to collectors, thift stores, or by holding a yard sale is a whole lot of effort with little payout. This inconvenience leads many of us to hoard things we wouldn't allow to take up valuable space in our homes. A new business concept uses technology to offer a whimsical solution.

Travel may not be in the budget, but that doesn't mean you can't have new experiences that make 2015 a memorable year. It's easy for adults to fall into the trap of "acting like grown ups" or putting all the focus on creating fun times for the children. But there's nothing wrong with letting loose, getting back to basics, and having the kind of fun you may have forgotten you can have as an adult. One business has made playtime happen.

    Every summer, many Americans flock to the drive in movie theaters to see their favorite retro flicks or new blockbuster releases. Although drive in movies are still popular today, there are far fewer operating theaters than there were a few decades ago, and some things have changed. Speakers no longer have to be pulled through your car's window as was once necessary (now, audio is available through a specified radio station), for example. What hasn't changed are the kids in pajamas or the pickup beds loaded with blankets and teenagers. But now, one concept could totally reinvent the drive in…

    Car seats are meant to keep our children safe, not to keep them cool. The same goes for strollers. Both are necessary and convenient when traveling with our kids, running errands, or trips to the park or beach. But our children’s body temperatures can heat up much faster than our own, and overheating is a very real and very scary concern for parents, especially on hot days and in hot cars. These products are inventive ways to help parents keep their children cool while in the car seat or stroller.

    Little by little, we're approaching a day and age where businesses that once relied on humans are using technology instead. I say "approaching" because we're not quite there yet; people are still valued in many fields, particularly where customer service is concerned. But that doesn't mean that many businesses aren't already embracing alternatives, and some of them happen to be a little strange.

    Beth Graddon-Hodgson
    8 Jul 2015 | 11:09 am
    Every summer, many Americans flock to the drive in movie theaters to see their favorite retro flicks or new blockbuster releases. Although drive in movies are still popular today, there are far fewer operating theaters than there were a few decades ago, and some things have changed. Speakers no longer have to be pulled through your car's window as was once necessary (now, audio is available through a specified radio station), for example. What hasn't changed are the kids in pajamas or the pickup beds loaded with blankets and teenagers. But now, one concept could totally reinvent the drive in…

Vegetables that are a little misshapen find themselves at the bottom of trash bags, and food nearing its best before date is considered unsavory before its time. There are some kind souls out there, however, that take pity on this unwanted food, and create businesses specifically to carve out a place in life for neglected eats.

My family of five is still a few years away from sitting down to a board game or the introduction to poker; but the idea that I will be able to play a game with them is thrilling. I will be adding Thumbs Up to our family’s rotation of games.

    Little by little, we're approaching a day and age where businesses that once relied on humans are using technology instead. I say "approaching" because we're not quite there yet; people are still valued in many fields, particularly where customer service is concerned. But that doesn't mean that many businesses aren't already embracing alternatives, and some of them happen to be a little strange.

If the portrayal in mainstream media has anything to say about it, you're probably envisioning being stretched out on a leather couch, sharing your darkest secrets while your therapist continues to provide you with a constant flow of new Kleenex as you deposit tear stained ones into the trash.

    Conquering Innovation Fatigue: Helping Inventors, Entrepreneurs and Leaders Find Innovation Success

  • Take a Broad Approach to Intellectual Property Strategy

    Jeffrey Lindsay
    20 Jul 2015 | 9:19 am
    I’ve noticed that many companies tend to emphasize patents in their IP strategy. Sometimes that’s almost all they consider. Sound IP strategy, however, requires applying a variety of tools. A broad approach to intellectual assets is more important than ever. Patents of various kinds, trademarks, trade secrets, copyright protection, and low-cost publications can all play a useful role. Utility patents can protect your products, their components, the machines for making them, the methods of making them, and methods of using them, among other things. Design patents can protect…
  • More Cold Water on the Fire of Innovation: Unnecessary Patent Reform

    Jeffrey Lindsay
    21 May 2015 | 7:23 pm
    Abraham Lincoln said that the patent system “added the fuel of interest to the fires of genius.” Today the fires of genius and the fire of innovation itself is getting doused with something less helpful than fuel. These fires are being cooled and, in some cases, extinguished with harsh attacks on the IP rights that once enabled and motivated lone inventors and small businesses to take the fruits of their genius to the market. The owners of small businesses, the people who generate most of the innovation and business growth in the United States have good reason to be worried. Their ability…
  • A Need To Save the US Patent System: A Warning from Dana Rohrabacher

    Many leading IP professionals working with the US patent system are growing increasingly concerned about the weakening of the IP system there. Some are so concerned that they are wondering what steps can be taken to save it. Save it from what, you might ask? Save it from erosion of the basic property rights that the Constitution sought to protect. Solve it from the capricious destruction of the incentives that inventors need to create and share their work. Save it from judges and politicians who see patents and property rights as problems. One man who wants to save our IP system is Rep. Dana…

    Decapitalizing IP value with our current revolution Many intellectual property practitioners worldwide are scratching their heads over what is happening to IP in the United States. There’s a revolution underway that over the past few years seems to have steadily eroded the value of patents and any semblance of predictability and order in the law. Patents can still be valuable, if you are lucky and have the right connections. For ordinary people and companies, patents, once the great equalizers against big companies, are now an unreliable tool. The erosion of IP rights is becoming a…
