Videos: Engine on a Chip

 

 

 

MIT Researchers are putting a tiny gas-turbine engine inside a silicon chip about the size of a quarter. This device could run 10 times longer than a battery of the same weight--powering laptops, cell phones, radios, and other electronic devices.; alternative energy; alternative fuel; micro turbines; MIT; R&D; turbine; turbines; MIT Researchers are putting a tiny gas-turbine engine inside a silicon chip about the size of a quarter.
