A catalytic flying carpet

Chemical engineering researchers develop self-powered microfluidic sheet that wraps, flaps and creeps

04-Jan-2019

The "magic carpet" featured in tales from "One Thousand and One Nights" to Disney's "Aladdin" captures the imagination not only because it can fly, but because it can also wave, flap, and alter its shape to serve its riders. With that inspiration, and the assistance of catalytic chemical ...
