Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology may have created the ultimate green battery technology: They’ve engineered a virus that could potentially form a battery that would outlast and out power those available today. The batteries could be used to power small electronic devices such as cell phones and MP3 players. In the future, they could also be used to power automobiles. The M13 virus used to create the batteries infects only bacteria, so it is harmless to humans. The recent discovery builds upon research that was performed three years ago when an MIT team genetically engineered... Read more...

What makes the ball “green” is its 32,256 Philips Luxeon Rebel LEDs, which is more than three times the number of LEDS used last year. So how can this ball be considered green, you might ask? This year’s ball is 10-20% more energy efficient than last year’s Ball,... Read more...
