Materials

In this section, you will find all our articles to do with materials. When it comes to architecture or designing new products, materials are important. That’s why we are constantly searching for new types. Or ways to modify/improve existing ones. Some might even be for the purpose of energy or designing gadgets. New substances have their own unique properties and quirks. So, by harnessing these, we can use them to our benefit. As a result, they will open up new doors in the future.

The purpose of this category is to talk about new material products. Now, they might be in a testing phase or purely futuristic. In either case, we will try to post up relevant articles concerning them. We will look at these new materials in detail. After that, we will learn about their intended uses and even future applications. So, you can expect some cool, funky stuff over here. That includes anything from high-tech concrete to even bulletproof silk!! Please note that some articles here can also be found in other sections of the technology tab.
