‘Electronic skin' equipped with memory

‘Electronic skin' equipped with memory | Creativity & Exploring the Unknown | Scoop.it

Researchers have created a wearable device that is as thin as a temporary tattoo and can store and transmit data about a person’s movements, receive diagnostic information and release drugs into skin.

 

Similar efforts to develop ‘electronic skin’ abound, but the device is the first that can store information and also deliver medicine — combining patient treatment and monitoring. Its creators, who report their findings today in Nature Nanotechnology, say that the technology could one day aid patients with movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease or epilepsy.

 

The researchers constructed the device by layering a package of stretchable nano-materials — sensors that detect temperature and motion, resistive RAM for data storage, micro-heaters and drugs — onto a material that mimics the softness and flexibility of the skin. The result was a sticky patch containing a device roughly 4 centimeters long, 2 cm wide and 0.3 millimeters thick.

MicrobeDB: a locally maintainable database of microbial genomic sequences

Analysis of microbial genomes often requires the general organization and comparison of tens to thousands of genomes both from public repositories and unpublished sources. MicrobeDB provides a foundation for such projects by the automation of downloading published, completed bacterial and archaeal genomes from key sources, parsing annotations of all genomes (both public and private) into a local database, and allowing interaction with the database through an easy to use programming interface.

Isaac Asimov on Science and Creativity in Education

Isaac Asimov on Science and Creativity in Education | Creativity & Exploring the Unknown | Scoop.it


Video of Bill Moyer's interview with Isaac Asimov. "Asimov shares invaluable insights on science, computing, religion, population growth and the universe, and echoes some of own beliefs in the power of curiosity-driven self-directed learning and the need to implement creativity in education from the onset...For more of Asimov’s cunning insight on the role of science and creativity in education, we highly recommend The Roving Mind."
