You Can Now Monitor Autism, Epilepsy & Melanoma On Your iPhone | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Apple’s ResearchKit, an app initiative that enables scientists to (consensually!) gather data from iPhone users and use them in clinical research studies, has added three new research projects to its roster. 

Despite some initial skepticism about personal data security, researchers have embraced this technology as an inclusive, data-rich avenue for advancing study on chronic conditions, health behaviors and more. 

 

Consumers are embracing it too: Jeff Williams, Apple’s senior vice president of operations, noted that in the six months since ResearchKit has launched, over 100,000 people have opted in to these studies.

Tiny robotic scallops can swim through blood and eyeball fluid to fix you up

Tiny robotic scallops can swim through blood and eyeball fluid to fix you up | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

For years now, scientists have been trying to develop microscopic robots that can swim through bodily fluids and repair damaged cells or deliver medicine. Now, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Germany believe they've got the perfect design -- in the form of scallops so small, they can barely be seen by the naked eye. These micro-robo-scallops move back and forth to swim through blood, eyeball fluids and other liquids inside our body. The scientists believe mimicking the way a true scallop swims is ideal, due to a number of reasons.

Also, what else is interesting, is "telepathy," i.e., that "thoughts" (electromagnetic impulses) can travel any distance, know no barrier, and can be received at any distance - faster than the speed of light - in the twinkling of an eye.
