A smart thermostat for central air-conditioning systems that can save more than 10% on power and improve indoor comfort levels has been developed and launched onto the market by a team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU). 
The seasonal typhoon prediction system to be developed by Professor Johnny Chan has the potential to protect lives and property more effectively.
A pioneering system for predicting with greater accuracy the landfall of seasonal typhoons to be developed by Professor Johnny Chan Chung-leung, Chair Professor of Atmospheric Science at the School of Energy and Environment, City University of Hong Kong (CityU), has received a grant under the European Commission (EC) and Research Grants Council (RGC) Collaboration Scheme. 
World’s strongest magnesium alloy developed Potential application as biodegradable medical implants
The new advanced material is 10 times stronger than conventional crystalline magnesium alloy and has super-deformation capacity two times higher than that of magnesium-based metallic glass. The magnesium-alloy system consists of nanocrystalline cores embeddedin amorphous glassy shells. The strength of the resulting dual-phase material is a near-ideal 3.3 gigapascals (Gpa) – making this the strongest magnesium – alloy thin film yet developed.
