New ultra-thin glass is just two atoms thick, earns Guinness World Record

A new record for the world’s thinnest sheet of glass has been set, and it comes in at just two atoms thick. The ultra-thin glass, now recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records, was an accidental discovery by scientists at Cornell University and Germany’s University of Ulm. As they were working to produce pure graphene, the researchers noticed a formation of “muck,” but closer analysis revealed a glass layer composed of silicon and oxygen. In other words, this major discovery was something of a stroke of luck. Scientists suspect that an air leak prompted a reaction between copper foils being used for the graphene work and a quartz furnace.

And despite the glass pane’s barely-there size, it’s providing scientists with a wealth of…

ClamCase Pro makes your iPad look like a thick MacBook Air

ClamCase Pro makes your iPad look like a thick MacBook Air

When we reviewed the initial ClamCase, we discovered a couple of defects that kept it from being a homerun: a cramped keyboard, an average plastic construct and a cumbersome power switch. It was suitable, but it might have been better. The peripheral’s makers appeared to agree– the ClamCase Pro addresses every one of our original grievances. Although the Pro is still a double-jointed iPad Bluetooth Keyboard at heart, it now includes a more widly spaced chicklet keyboard, aluminium and polycarbonate construction and automatic wake / sleep functions, to keep its battery life in check. Drop in your tablet, and the whole package deal looks a great deal like something that may come straight from Cupertino. Groundbreaking? No, however it’s constantly nice to see follow up item straight answer its predecessor’s flaws. The ClamCase Pro is compatible with the iPad 2 and up, too– so you won’t have to fret about purchasing different variations for multiple generations. The asking price sits at $ 170– but the company will toss you a $ 20 discount if you “like” them on Zuckerberg’s social network.

ZTE Grand S should be just 6.9mm inches thick, wield a 13MP camera

ZTE Grand S should be just 69mm inches thick, wield a 13MP camera

ZTE has been more than willing to spill the beans about the Grand S ahead of CES, and it’s not stopping with the mention that the phone exists. The Chinese phone maker has confirmed that its 5-inch smartphone measures just 6.9mm (0.27in) thick — that’s a sight slimmer than the Droid DNA and Nubia Z5. There’s also mention of a 13-megapixel camera that explains a slightly visible rear hump. While we don’t yet have confirmation of the rumored quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro and 2GB of RAM, ZTE has left clues that the flagship could undercut typical pricing with a ¥2,799 ($ 449) off-contract cost in China. We may only know the full details in Las Vegas, but there’s every indication that the Grand S hardware could justify a boast or two.

ADATA’s got an 8.9mm thick portable USB 3.0 drive, limbos under the competition by a millimeter

ADATAs got an 89mm thick portable USB 30 drive, limbos under the competition by a millimeter

When it involves your device being the “world’s thinnest” or not could be decided by a single millimeter. Just days after Toshiba unveiled its 9mm-thick 500GB external hard disk, ADATA has knocked a little even more off its very own enclosure and stated triumph. It’s releasing the DashDrive Elite HE720, a stainless steel USB 3.0 drive that measures in at 8.9mm-thick, and size is not the only division where it’s making an end-run around ol’ Tosh– it’s additionally $ 25 bucks cheaper, costing $ 90. In even more routine news, users who pick up the unit are entitled to snag a 60-day trial of Norton Web Security and it’ll be available soon.

Motorola Atrix HD for AT&T appears: 8.4mm thick with 4.5-inch 720p screen, Kevlar back

Atrix HD

Motorola has actually posted a complete page on the Atrix HD, the third-generation Atrix gadget that we first revealed last month as the “Dinara.” It features a 4.5-inch 720p screen, 1.5 GHz dual-core cpu, 1GB of RAM, 8BGB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera, and a microSD card slot. It’s running Android 4.0 and unlike several the othe significant Android 4.0 gadgets we have actually seen recently, this variation comes total with on-screen buttons. It even has the Kevlar back that we have actually seen on current Droid RAZRs and, in fact, doesn’t look all that different from a RAZR from the side perspective. Motorola has the measurements set at 69.9 x 133.5 x 8.4 mm and weighing 140 grams, and notes that the 720p screen is an appropriate TFT LCD with Motorola’s “ColorBoost” technology. It will …

This electric wire is four atoms thick, and you thought speaker cable was fiddly (video)

This should come as a great relief to anyone planning a quantum computer self-build: wires still conduct electricity and obey key laws of classical physics even when they’re built at the nanoscale. Researchers at Purdue and Melbourne universities used chains of phosphorus atoms inside a silicon crystal to create a wire that’s just four atoms wide and a single atom high — 20 times smaller than the previous record-holder and infinitely narrower than anything you’d find at Newegg. The video after the break almost explains how they did it.

Fujitsu Arrows ES IS12F coming to Japan next year: thick name, thin phone

KDDI‘s au network in Japan has revealed that it’ll be stocking the slender Fujitsu Arrows ES IS12F starting January 2012. Fujitsu fans may recall seeing a very similar handset with the same (mostly) 6.7mm profile when NTT DoCoMo’s version sashayed into those stuffy FCC offices. The phone runs on a single core processor, which is responsible for powering the image-stabilizing five megapixel camera and Gingerbread OS. The 4-inch, 480 x 800 AMOLED screen is cocooned in the same water resistant armor found on other Arrows devices, helping to protect those essential keitai functions like the One-Seg digital TV tuner and IR receiver. The skinny smartphone will go on sale in both black and red options on KIDDI, while NTT DoCoMo customers will have to settle for black.

ARROWS ES: Fujitsu’s Android Phone Is Just 6.7MM Thick And Waterproof, Boasts 4-Inch NEW AMOLED Display

arrows feat

No doubt, Japan is on its way to becoming Android country. The newest alternative for the 100+ million mobile subscribers in the country is Fujitsu-Toshiba’s ARROWS ES IS12F, which was announced [JP] by major telco KDDI au today. Their biggest selling point is that the handset is just 6.7mm thick.

Fujitsu-Toshiba is still a bit slow on bringing their (mostly) awesome Android phones to North America and other places, but my guess is next year, we’ll be seeing more handsets from Japan in the global market.

Looking at the feature set of the ARROWS ES IS12F, it may actually make sense:

  • Android 2.3.5 OS
  • 4-inch NEW AMOLED display with 480×800 resolution and 100,000:1 contrast ratio
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 CPU (1.4Ghz)
  • 512MB RAM
  • 1GB ROM
  • waterproof body (IPX5/IPX8)
  • 5MP CMOS camera
  • IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
  • DLNA support
  • e-wallet function (NFC)
  • infrared connection
  • digital TV tuner
  • microSDHC slot
  • English/Japanese menu
  • size: 64×127×6.7mm, weight: 105g

The ARROWS ES IS12F is expected to hit Japanese stores next month with an open price model.
