Bill Gates recently wrote the foreword for Edison and the Rise of Innovation, a new book about one of the great inventors ever. Read the foreword and view photos of some of the Edison-related items he owns.

The Nanodoctor Will See You: Tiny Particles May Help Fight Disease

The Nanodoctor Will See You: Tiny Particles May Help Fight Disease | Interesting Innovation | Scoop.it
Researchers are designing tiny particles to act as medicine.

 

The particles are coated with waterlike molecules that allow them to travel inside the body without being detected by the immune system, Farokhzad said. Their surfaces contain molecules that provide them with a "GPS" to seek out abnormal cancer cells.

 

Once they find a cancer cell, the particles stick, and like a Trojan horse, the cancer cells take them inside where they can release medicine that's toxic to the cell, Farokhzad said. [Watch the World Science Festival Live.]

 

In a study published last year in Science Translational Medicine, Farokhzad and colleagues showed that, in people, the nanoparticles delivered a much higher dose of medicine to cancer cells than to other cells in the body. Follow-up studies will test the effectiveness of the drug at treating tumors.

Thanks for sharing, this is a good piece. Apart from nanoparticles, nanorobots are also on the rise in cancerology: http://www.paristechreview.com/2013/04/26/cancer-treatment/

Quantum invisibility cloak could hide objects from reality | ExtremeTech | Interesting Innovation | Scoop.it
Researchers believe it is possible to create a quantum invisibility cloak. Anything hidden in it would be shielded from reality on a quantum level.

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.

If only we could discover the secret of magnifying those impulses we would be half-way to sending parcels by teleporting...
