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.

A Tattoo That Monitors Your Sweat [VIDEO]

A Tattoo That Monitors Your Sweat [VIDEO] | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Researchers at UCSD at developing technology that will create a tattoo that monitors your sweat to provide an assessment of metabolic health.

 

A team at the University of California-San Diego are looking into sensors applied to the skin, much like a temporary tattoo. In the journal Analytical Chemistry, researchers explain these thin strips of adhesive can monitor an athlete’s chemical balance to gauge their physical activity.

Yes, For Real, It’s An Invisible Bicycle Helmet And It IS Awesome | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
I love smart design, when you can just look at a product or service and be able to see the methodical, thorough, detail-oriented thinking process that went behind it, aimed at solving a problem, innovating, and disregarding convention.

Bionic City's curator insight, March 28, 2014 6:04 PM

"In searching for sustainable strategies for the Leapfrog Project for Central Philippines rebuilding program, I came across the Global Innovation Science Handbook. The volume, compiled by the International Journal of Innovation Science, contains 50 chapters, each one of which tackles innovation within a variety of industries. The book's ninth chapter, "Biomimetics: Learning from Life," focuses on biomimetics and suggests ways that the built environment can learn from the natural world. The text, written by design scientist and futurist Melissa, grips you with insights on two great fields of human endeavor: leading-edge science and technology. While it has a sense of otherworldliness bordering on “[a] science fiction film set far in the future,” as Sterry describes, it’s delivered in an accessible prose that will be appreciated by practicing architects, designers, and even casual readers. The text provokes thought about biomimetics as the intuitive part of our natural self and environment."

Renault's Off-Roader Concept Launches a Drone Out of Its Roof

Renault's Off-Roader Concept Launches a Drone Out of Its Roof | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Forget taco-copters or same-day shipping -- drones are the perfect companion for off-roaders. They can scout locations, keep tabs on terrain, and when you're back on paved roads, give you a heads up about that tool that flipped his pickup on your morning commute. And that's exactly what the Renault Kwid concept is promising.
