UC Berkeley professor’s ‘slaughterbots’ video on killer drones goes viral

A UC Berkeley computer science professor helped to create a video that imagined a world where nuclear weapons were replaced by swarms of autonomous tiny drones that could kill half a city and are virtually unstoppable.

The first fully-2D, wonder-material graphene-molybdenite transistor could be the future of fast electronics

Flexible graphene circuit
Researchers at Berkeley Lab, using a trio of single-atom-thick wonder materials — graphene, boron nitride, and molybdenite — have created the first all-2D field-effect transistor. This FET could also be the first in a new class of electronic devices that are held together with the van der Waals force — the same force that geckos use to walk up a piece of glass. According to Berkeley Lab, these 2D, wonder-material FETs could be the key to a ‘faster electronics future.’
