Researchers Breathe New Life into Paper Books with the Magic Bookmark

Researchers Breathe New Life into Paper Books with the Magic Bookmark

Researchers have developed a new, cost-effective, ecological solution for augmenting the printed page with rich, up-to-date digital content. The development overcomes one of the most significant advantages e-books have over paper books, helping paper maintain its strong position in its competition with electronic media.

3D Printed, Personalised, Wireless Wearables That Never Need a Charge

3D Printed, Personalised, Wireless Wearables That Never Need a Charge

Engineers have developed a type of wearable they call a "biosymbiotic device," which has several unprecedented benefits. Not only are the devices custom 3D-printed and based on body scans of wearers, but they can operate continuously using a combination of wireless power transfer and compact energy storage.

Low Cost, Portable Device Could Diagnose Heart Attacks in Minutes

Low Cost, Portable Device Could Diagnose Heart Attacks in Minutes

Researchers have developed a sensor that could diagnose a heart attack in less than 30 minutes. Currently, it takes health care professionals hours to diagnose a heart attack. Initial results from an echocardiogram can quickly show indications of heart disease, but to confirm a patient is having a heart attack, a blood sample and analysis is required. Those results can take up to eight hours.

Competing Short-Wavelength Infra-Red Sensing Technologies

Competing Short-Wavelength Infra-Red Sensing Technologies

The widespread adoption of machine vision makes image sensors that can detect light outside the visible spectrum increasingly useful, since the aim is to augment human sight rather than duplicate it. For example, imaging in the short-wave infra-red (SWIR) spectral region, which spans from 1000 to 2000 nm, offers multiple benefits that can supplement conventional cameras.

New Class of Human-Powered Bioelectronics

New Class of Human-Powered Bioelectronics

A team of bioengineers has invented a novel soft and flexible self-powered bioelectronic device. The technology converts human body motions — from bending an elbow to subtle movements such as a pulse on one's wrist — into electricity that could be used to power wearable and implantable diagnostic sensors.

Sony to Release Two Types of Stacked Event-Based Vision Sensors

Sony to Release Two Types of Stacked Event-Based Vision Sensors

Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation announced the upcoming release of two types of stacked event-based vision sensors. These sensors designed for industrial equipment are capable of detecting only subject changes, and achieve the industry's smallest pixel size of 4.86µm.

New Sensor Uses Photonics to Spot Killer Fruit & Veg

New Sensor Uses Photonics to Spot Killer Fruit & Veg

A recent study shows pesticides in fruit and vegetables kill 11,000 people every year and unintentionally poison 385 million worldwide. Monitoring these foods for microscopic chemicals and harmful bacteria can take days of sending small batches off to laboratories for testing and analysis. But now, a new detector is being developed to spot minute traces of these poisonous elements with photonics to give a result in minutes.

Tracking Muscle Activity with Clothes on Your Back

Bioelectrical sensors on the skin can be used to measure electrical signals in the body, like heart activity and muscle contraction. While that provides valuable information for clinicians, current bioelectrical sensor technology can be ineffective, uncomfortable, expensive, and difficult to manufacture.
