Electronic stickers to streamline Internet of Things

Researchers at Purdue have developed a new fabrication method that makes tiny, thin-film electronic circuits peelable from a surface. The technique not only eliminates several manufacturing steps and the associated costs, but also allows any object to sense its environment or be controlled through the application of a high-tech sticker.

RENEWW House aims for net zero energy, water, and waste

Is it possible to convert a 1920's bungalow into a 21st-century smart home with net zero water and energy usage? That's the goal of Purdue University's RENEWW House, in conjunction with Whirlpool Corporation. Purdue researchers have added solar panels for heat and electricity, filtered rainwater basins for most water usage, a biowall of plants to filter the air, energy-efficient appliances, and sensors to monitor every drop of water and energy usage.

Purdue SEDS launches its highest rocket ever

Purdue SEDS (Students for the Exploration and Development of Space) launched a solid rocket to 41,096 feet during the Spaceport America Cup in New Mexico. Their rocket, called "A Slightly Smaller Step," was a Cesaroni N5800. The rocket flew to 41,096 ft altitude, reached speeds up to Mach 2.4, and experienced 30 Gs of acceleration. At apogee the drogue successfully deployed and at 1,500 ft the main parachute deployed resulting in touchdown 2.5 miles away from the launch site. Using our Telemetrum telemetry system we were able to follow the GPS location directly to the landing site.

Purdue Electric Racing: 300 Volts of Speed

There's something unique about the high-pitched whine of a fully electric race car, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds, showing off insane amounts of torque instantly. "There's a lot of hype about electric vehicles taking over," says Matthew Flanagan, president of Purdue Electric Racing. "And after being involved with this car, I can say I totally believe it!"
