Biosensors Printed Directly On Skin Bring Wearable Tech To Next Level

Scientists have developed an innovative technique to print biosensors, which can measure temperature, electrical heart signals and blood oxygen saturation, directly onto the skin at room temperature. This advance, which was developed by US and Chinese researchers and led by... Continue Reading →

New electronic skin can react to pain like human skin

Researchers have developed electronic artificial skin that reacts to pain just like real skin, opening the way to better prosthetics, smarter robotics and non-invasive alternatives to skin grafts. The prototype device developed by a team at RMIT University in Melbourne,... Continue Reading →

Neuralink…the future is weird

Elon Musk has showed off his company Neuralink’s brain-computer interface for the first time. In an announcement on 28 August, Neuralink unveiled prototypes of its device and showed off pigs with the devices implanted in their brains. The device resembles... Continue Reading →

NASA’s Mars Helicopter

This summer, NASA plans to launch its next Mars rover, Perseverance, which will carry with it the first aircraft to ever fly on another planet, the Mars Helicopter. As the first of its kind, the Mars Helicopter will carry no... Continue Reading →

Electronic skin fully powered by sweat can monitor health

One of the ways we experience the world around us is through our skin. From sensing temperature and pressure to pleasure or pain, the many nerve endings in our skin tell us a great deal. Our skin can also tell... Continue Reading →

Assembling the X-59 QueSST Wing

The X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology, or QueSST, wing assembly is lifted by a crane and moved to another area of the manufacturing floor in preparation for wing skin installation. The aircraft is under construction at Lockheed Martin in Palmdale, California, and will... Continue Reading →

Design of inorganic materials for brain-like computing

Ever wish your computer could think like you do or perhaps even understand you? That future may not be now, but it's one step closer, thanks to a Texas A&M University-led team of scientists and engineers and their recent discovery... Continue Reading →

New Green Technology from UMass Amherst Generates Electricity ‘Out of Thin Air’

Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed a device that uses a natural protein to create electricity from moisture in the air, a new technology they say could have significant implications for the future of renewable energy, climate... Continue Reading →

Are electric vehicles more damaging than diesel?

Trying to figure out just how green electric cars are, can be problematic, as it partly relies on the fuel mix that generates the electricity. Germany for example still relies heavily on coal-fired power plants. Financial Times reporters Claire Jones... Continue Reading →
