11/07/2013, While thermometers are handy if you want to measure your body’s temperature to see if you have a fever, it doesn’t really tell you much or what you might be potentially suffering from, and that’s what the Kinsa tool is hoping to do. As you can see in the image above, Kinsa is a thermometer that can be attached to your iPhone via the headphone jack and it will be […]
11/01/2013, We learned a long time ago people love their technology, with some even going as far as implanting them into their bodies. Earlier this year, we saw a man implant headphones into his ears, and today we’re seeing a man who put a computer inside of his arm.
11/01/2013, We’ve seen a number of ways modern technology can help the blind as well as those with limited vision get around a little easier. Just this week, we saw a robotic cane that can help its user make their way past obstacles, but a new pair of smart glasses could actually help that person with limited vision see obstacles for themselves, as well as other things around them.
10/31/2013, Your local blood bank could very well one day start carrying something other than human blood as the Balkan News Agency is reporting a team of scientist from Romania have successfully created artificial blood. The artificial blood has been successfully tested in mice as they didn’t experience any negative symptoms at all as the blood was able to perform exactly how organic blood does.
10/31/2013, We’ve seen stories of people creating their own prosthetics in the past, but Leon McCarthy’s story is one that certainly is one of the most interesting as he and his father have been working together to not only build him a low-cost 3D-printed prosthetic, but to also modify the original design in order to create a new one when he outgrows the previous hand.
10/30/2013, People with eyesight often times have trouble making their way through the world as tend to trip, stumble or bump into things, even though we see them coming. Blind people probably have a much more difficult time getting around as they often need to seek the guidance of a cane to get them around safely. That’s why something like the robotic cane needs to be turned into an actual consumer […]
10/30/2013, Facial hair is something the majority of men are both gifted and cursed with as many of us can take a quick nap to find a full bush sitting above our upper lip, while there are those who have tried for several years, but can’t even achieve a short stubble. That’s why Istanbul, Turkey has become the hot spot if you want to obtain a mustache implant.
10/25/2013, According to the numbers, for every minute it takes for first responders to reach a person suffering from cardiac arrest, their odds of survival drop by 10% and this is one of the reasons why Sweden has come up with an interesting and potentially life-saving method of helping those with cardiac arrest as quickly as possible. This is done through the help of volunteers and text messages. For instance when […]
10/24/2013, Unless you live in a jungle somewhere, we’re sure you’ve gone through the experience of visiting a doctor. You’re forced to sit among other sick patients for hours just to get poked and prodded, sometimes resulting in the doctor telling you “Just walk it off.” You could have spent your time doing something better, which is why American Well is launching a new service that allows you to see a […]
10/24/2013, The intensive care unit of any hospital is probably one of the most important areas considering patients need some serious care in order to survive their ailment. Medicine, surgeries and other forms of interventions are common for those in the intesive care unit, making trying to find comfortable surroundings rather difficult. Philips is looking to change that as they’re looking to improve patient care by simply using LEDs.
10/23/2013, Samsung Electronics is not all about profit, as they too, have a sense of corporate social responsibility, which is why they have decided to roll out their very first Digital Villages initiative in the continent of South Africa. This initiative’s mission is to integrate African communities’ hospitals, schools, lighting systems and energy infrastructure using solar power. The entire project will deliver comprehensive support to improve health standards, bolster education opportunities […]
10/22/2013, We’re sure you’ve all been in this situation before. You’re on a first date with someone you’ve really had a crush on for quite some time, so you want things to go well. But suddenly, your rump needs to expel some extra gas, but you hold it in for fear the smell would drive your potential partner away, never to talk to you again. Now you won’t have to worry […]
10/21/2013, Robots are meant to help humanity in their very own way, which is a good thing. We are just keeping our fingers crossed that robots do not gain that kind of self awareness that would enslave us all, just like all those apocalyptic scenarios that we have seen in science fiction movies. Well, here is a robot that knows the value of a life. Robotena, as “she” is called, is […]
10/15/2013, Telepathy, now that is certainly a kind of power that we would love to have. As a guy, I sometimes end up with this blank look on my face, wondering just what went wrong with my conversation with the missus. It is moments like those that I wished I could read her mind so that everything would end up hunky dory. No matter, at least it is an opportunity to […]
