Technology took a quantum leap in 2018, quite literally. # 1 Plane with no moving parts Developed by researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a plane with no moving parts -- no turbines, propellers or even fans -- took flight in November. The prototype was powered by 'ionic wind' --the flow of ions produced by the plane that creates enough thrust to push it through air. # 2 Wood stronger than titanium Researchers at the University of Maryland found a way to make wood more than 10 times times stronger and tougher, creating a natural substance that is stronger than many titanium alloys. #3 A font to help you remember Technology also found its way into the written word.
