Traditional 3D printing has limits that have negatively impacted its usefulness. For one, almost all 3D printers use plastic as the medium, and that plastic needs to be supported during the printing process. An experimental printer developed by Harvard’s Wyss Institute and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) uses nanoparticles and lasers to make metallic 3D printing feasible in midair.

La Niña Is Kicking El Niño's Ass | #Climate #ClimateChange 

La Niña Is Kicking El Niño's Ass | #Climate #ClimateChange  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Move over, El Niño. You may be the strongest such climate pattern humans have ever recorded, and you may have given California crabs this week, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration can see right through you, and you’re losing ground.

That’s right: the El Niño phenomenon that fueled endless weird weather, hot months, and Chris Farley jokes this past year is on the downswing. And if the latest NOAA data is any indicator, La Niña is liquored up and ready to rage. The Hot Blob that’s been cooling its heels over the Pacific for the past year—a constant reminder that we’re in the steamy clutches of a monster El Niño—is now being undercut by a deeper pool of colder water.

MIT researchers invented an origami robot that will unfold in your stomach

MIT researchers invented an origami robot that will unfold in your stomach | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

Researchers have invented an origami robot that, true to its name, unfolds in your stomach.


If that sounds gross to you, that's because it totally is, but it could be a game-changer in the medical community due to its ability to remove batteries from the human body, according to a paper recently presented at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation.

THEY don’t drink, they don’t get tired and they don’t go on strike. To hospital managers, the idea of robots operating on patients without human intervention is an attractive one. To patients, though, the crucial question is, “are they better than human surgeons?” Surgery is messy and complicated. A routine operation can become life-threatening in minutes.

Such considerations have meant that the role of robots in operating theatres has been limited until now to being little more than motorised, precision tools for surgeons to deploy—a far cry from the smart surgical pods and “med-bays” of science fiction. But a paper published this week in Science Translational Medicine, by Peter Kim of the Children’s National Health System in Washington, DC, and his colleagues, brings the idea of real robot surgeons, operating under only the lightest of human supervision, a step closer. Though not yet let loose on people, it has successfully stitched up the intestines of piglets.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved an injectable pacemaker that doesn’t require wired leads, which often lead to complications.


Image: Medtronic
The one-inch long Medtronic-built device, called the Micra Transcatheter Pacing System, is about a tenth the size of traditional pacemakers—making it the smallest in the world.

It’s intended for patients with atrial fibrillation (an irregular or rapid heart rate) and other dangerous arrhythmias, including bradycardia-tachycardia syndrome. The FDA approved the device in light of a Medtronic clinical trial involving 719 patients who were implanted with the device. After six months, around 98 percent of the patients experienced adequate heart pacing. A small fraction (7 percent) of patients experienced major complications, such as cardiac injuries, device dislocation, and blood clots.

Chronos: MIT's new Wi-Fi tech is eerily accurate

Chronos: MIT's new Wi-Fi tech is eerily accurate | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Wi-Fi could soon have a very detailed geofence, if MIT researchers have their way. They’ve introduced a new project named ‘Chronos’ that helps Wi-Fi signals locate you within “tens of centimeters.”

The team managed this by monitoring several Wi-Fi bands, then cobbling the data together to find out how long a signal takes to find the end user. In knowing the time and distance it takes for a Wi-Fi signal to travel, MIT can create advanced geofencing.

A biomimetic 'bridge' to precision medicine

(Nanowerk News) Nanotechnology has led to better diagnostic techniques and treatments for a variety of illnesses. Tiny devices that enable scientists to observe cell activity and deliver drugs to individual cells promise to revolutionize precision medicine for treatment of diseases such as cancer.
One obstacle to fulfilling nanomedicine’s promise is the inability to observe cell-to-cell interactions in an environment that closely simulates the dynamic environment inside the body. A micro-fluid environment that mimics blood flow is key to learning how cells become damaged by disease—and how they might respond to treatment.
Now a team of researchers at Lehigh and the University of Pennsylvania has developed a technique that uses antibody-coated nanoparticles as imaging probes to watch cell-to-cell interactions under micro-fluid conditions.

Graphene patch monitors blood glucose and auto-injects treatment | #Research #Medicine | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
If you were sitting around worrying that graphene might not be able to live up to its potential in electrochemical bio-sensing (and that has to be at least half of you), then worry no more: All we have to do to make graphene practical for every-day use is mix it with gold! By employing just a tiny amount of the precious metal to offset some of graphene’s least helpful properties, it turns out that we might be able to fully exploit its best ones. A new study published in Nature Nanotechnology uses this hybrid to create a flexible skin patch to monitor blood glucose and, more importantly, automatically administer drugs as needed.
