Bendable recording device

Scientists at the ICMAB-CSIC have developed a new magnetic recording device where information is cloaked, virtually unerasable and bendable. The device can store information like a magnetic band of a credit card or a barcode, or even like other more advanced magnetic memories. Once written the information is unalterable and safe.

New refrigerating machine with an efficiency comparable to the electric ones

Researchers at the CSIC have developed a refrigerating machine suitable for bromide lithium-water absorption, air-air, direct expansion and Split, with a high energy efficiency. It is a sustainable and efficient alternative designed for home cooling. It is condensed by air, has less environmental impact, is easy to build and it does not generate contamination by Legionella.
