Philips aims to relieve persistent pain with Smartphone-controlled Devices

Philips aims to relieve persistent pain with Smartphone-controlled Devices | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Philips will soon launch a couple of iPhone- and iPad-controlled devices, but they're not the company's usual phone docks or Hue smartlight models -- they're gadgets designed to help suppress persistent pain.

What’s next for wearables

What’s next for wearables | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Sensors might soon be embedded into everything from our socks to our hospital stretchers, which could be good for collecting data but will certainly change consumers' interactions with technology.

In the future, sensors could actually be woven directly into textiles. That could be a big deal because clothes that are smart by default would eliminate what Vigano calls a “baby treasure hunt” for devices every morning, (let alone having to wash them). “Any time you actually ask a consumer to change his behavior, that’s super challenging,”  “There are some senses that have not been explored completely,”

With the promise of swappable parts, and knowing Google is working on things that aren’t memory or cameras or other normal smartphone spec-sheet fodder, we’re starting to see that Ara can be much more than just a phone.  Though it may not take the place of every medical device in a hospital, swappable modules are a great concept for consumers — especially those with blood oxygen issues, now. It’s not hard to envision a thermostat module, or other home devices you might have. With a block of memory, you could keep track of all your info, and even store it locally if you like.

Not the 1st time we've seen robots be used for this type of work, robots were used on the 9/11 pile of  the WTC. However “The goal is to use BioBots with high-resolution microphones to differentiate between sounds that matter- like people calling for help- from sounds that don’t matter- like a leaking pipe. Once we’ve identified sounds that matter, we can use BioBots equipped with microphone arrays to zero in on where those sounds are coming from.”

Des scientifiques ont réussi à altérer le virus du SIDA pour guérir totalement des personnes atteintes du cancer !

Des scientifiques ont réussi à altérer le virus du SIDA pour guérir totalement des personnes atteintes du cancer ! | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it
Le SIDA est l’une des maladies les plus dangereuses et l’humanité est toujours à la recherche d’un remède efficace. Pourtant, grâce à la génétique, des chercheurs ont trouvé une utilité à ce virus. Il est aujourd’hui modifié et utilisé pour se débarrasser d’une autre pathologie mortelle : le cancer. DGS vous en dit plus sur cette méthode ahurissante.Le VIH tue environ un 1,5 million de personnes par an dans le monde. C’est pourtant lui qui est aujourd’hui injecté dans le corps de patients pour les guérir d’un cancer. Depuis le séquençage de notre génome en 2001, de nombreuses innovations concernant notre ADN ont vu le jour. Surtout la compréhension de ce qui pouvait causer des maladies a beaucoup évolué. Le cancer est dans absolument tous les cas causé par une anomalie d’ADN, qu’elle soit provoquée par la cigarette ou toute autre raison. Beaucoup d’entre elles peuvent être la conséquence de petites erreurs copiées dans nos cellules. Souvent, les scientifiques utilisent des échantillons provenant de personnes atteintes d’un cancer pour trouver d’où vient la cause mais ces cellules meurent rapidement dans le laboratoire, hors du corps. Pour remédier à ce problème, les chercheurs possèdent un arsenal de « cellules immortelles » qui ne font que se diviser et grandir avec le temps. Elles ont un ADN modifié qui leur permet de vivre dans des conditions artificielles qui miment l’organisme humain.
