Study: BitTorrent music piracy increases album sales

05/18, 11:16am

Leaked album piracy raised sales by 60 on average

A recent study has found that raised BitTorrent piracy may be related to higher album sales. North Carolina State University assistant professor Robert Hammond monitored prerelease albums being downloaded through BitTorrent and compared the numbers with actual album sales. The investigation is said to have uncovered a direct correlation between the two, albeit minor.

Scientists send first wireless neutrino message

Scientists and researchers at the University of Rochester and North Carolina State University have sent a wireless message using neutrinos through nearly 800 feet (240m exactly) of solid stone. The almost massless particles travel at the speed of light and can pass through nearly any matter they encounter. The message transmitted just read "Neutrino" and was sent in binary code.

Fiber nanocoatings being developed by NC State

Researchers at the North Carolina State University are hard at work developing an ultra-thin conductive nanocoating that they hope can eventually be used to produce electronics integrated into clothing. The material is thinner than the human hair by a factor of thousands and the technique to develop is called atomic layer deposition. An inorganic, conductive layer is grown on top of materials like woven cotton.

NC State patents high-power GaN computer sensors

Researchers at North Carolina State University have found a way to put gallium nitride (GaN) sensors and related devices onto silicon computer chips. The finding will pave the way for high voltage and high current devices critical for the development of energy distribution devices in smart grid technology and military communications. Co-holder of the patent and Professor of Materials Science and Engineering says GaN can support more power than conventional transistors and do so faster.
