Implantable silk optics multi-task in the body (12/2/2012) | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
Dissolvable micro-mirrors enhance imaging, administer heat, deliver and monitor drugs...

-

Tufts University School of Engineering researchers have demonstrated silk-based implantable optics that offer significant improvement in tissue imaging while simultaneously enabling photo thermal therapy, administering drugs and monitoring drug delivery. The devices also lend themselves to a variety of other biomedical functions.

Biodegradable and biocompatible, these tiny mirror-like devices dissolve harmlessly at predetermined rates and require no surgery to remove them.

How to Use Twitter Friends As Sensors to Detect Disease Outbreaks

How to Use Twitter Friends As Sensors to Detect Disease Outbreaks | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

There is intense interest in studying the way information flows through the Twitter network and how this information can be used to measure and even predict public opinion or disease outbreaks. But all this work shares a common problem: the sheer volume of data that Twitter generates. It’s simply not possible to follow what everybody is doing all the time. New research suggests there’s a better way to track the spread of information on Twitter that is much more powerful.

FIELD × EF-4: Riots

FIELD × EF-4: Riots | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The fourth story in Energy Flow turns fragmented memories of the London Riots into digital paintings.

Over the last few years our world has been shaken up with the London Riots, Arab Spring, Occupy Movement and protests across Europe. Established systems that were a fixed part of our world view, be it the financial system and its absurd concept of infinite growth, or the polictical order in the Arabic countries, are failing, turned upside down or are coming to a halt.
