Scientists: Human Proteins to Power Tech Gadgets

Researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel have successfully created man-made, biodegradable transistors derived from proteins found in a mixture of blood, milk and mucus. Mixed together, the concoction is able to self-assemble into a ... semi-conducting film. This could revolutionize the tech industry by helping manufacturers produce devices that are both more flexible and biodegradable. According to the science behind the substances, the different proteins contain unique properties that combine to make a better transistor. The oxygen storing ability of blood, for example, helps mix chemicals ... (view more)
