Parker Hannifin’s Runwise technology is based on an energy recovery system that collects energy when brakes are applied and when the engine is idling, storing this energy in a hydraulic accumulator. The hybrid technology was developed in conjunction with Autocar, a garbage truck developer, but Parker is also examining systems that can be used in wheel loaders and other vehicles that often start and stop.

With a surface composed of tightly packed nanostructures that resemble tiny nails, thus the term “nanonails,” University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers and their colleagues from Bell Laboratories have created a material that can repel almost any liquid. But with a jolt of electricity, the liquid on the surface slips past the heads of the nanonails and spreads out between their shanks, wetting the surface completely.
