09/12/2013, With the recent release of Man of Steel as well as all of the cool RC Supermen flying through the air, we think it’s safe to say most people like Superman. Sure – he’s pretty much an alien who just so happens to look like a human being who has super powers thanks to our solar system’s yellow sun, but there’s just something about him many people enjoy. As big of […]
09/06/2013, Back in June, we published a story highlighting the amazing steps the A.C. Camargo Cancer Center in Sao Paulo are taking in order to help children cope with their chemotherapy treatments. Now we’re hearing a story of a children’s hospital in NYC who has made the process of getting a CAT scan way less scary by having the process take place in a pirate-themed room.
08/29/2013, Last month, we caught wind of a 3d-printed cast that is able to give your wounded area, such as your arm, some much needed ventilation as it helps heal your busted bones, and is also recyclable. We thought the concept was pretty neat, but the concept of the Comfort Cast makes us want to go play in traffic in hopes we’ll limp off with a broken bone or seven.
08/28/2013, Just in case there is such a thing as a zombie apocalypse happening sometime in the near future as popular culture has depicted in the movies, on the TV as well as in a comics series, perhaps having fantastic hand-to-hand combat skills, sufficient ammunition and the kind of strategic know-how in winning a battle against zombies and other opportunistic humans, perhaps a different approach might work better – by giving […]
08/27/2013, There’s no denying we all need a boost of energy every so often to get us through our work day or night. Caffeine seems to be the drug of choice for the majority of people who need that extra boost, which can be ingested in a number of ways, such as drinking coffee, red bull or by even chewing gum. The downside to ingesting caffeine is you’ll inevitably crash, but […]
08/26/2013, Heart attacks are definitely something that no one in their right mind would want to go through or experience, and it also has been known to be the “silent killer”. Well, we can do our part to make sure that we are all as healthy as a horse, through a proper diet and exercise regime, but at the end of the day, if you are going to be a heart […]
08/23/2013, As someone who wears glasses for the majority of my life, I can tell you just how important eye exams are, especially if there’s a small bit of change in my eyes. Being able to see the world with as much detail as possible is extremely important for me, especially when it comes to work. Unfortunately, not everyone can get to an eye doctor, especially if they live in remote […]
08/23/2013, We know that Apple’s iPad has been used in a variety of different ways, some for entertainment, some for productivity, some for medical use, and now it seems that the iPad has even been used as part of a surgery! This is thanks to the use of an augmented reality app that when used together with the iPad, allowed doctors to place a 3D vessel map on top of a […]
08/22/2013, Going to the doctor is no fun at all, unless you are the doctor yourself and clocking in for work. Bringing kids to see a doctor does take a special skill set for new parents, as seeing your little one receive an injection under the cloud of fear, pain and uncertainty is a gut-wrenching experience. Is there any other way to deliver a vaccine or medicine without having to go […]
08/19/2013, As you age and your friends start to push up daisies, you would find yourself surrounded by folk younger than yourself (some by a long mile) more often than not. It can get lonely at times however, when all the young whippersnappers have their own lives to run and be busy with, which is why robots might step in to take the place of human companionship. The MOBISERV project is […]
08/19/2013, It’s not uncommon for kids to get a broken bone at some point in their life as they live a dangerous life between snacks, multiplayer sessions of Call of Duty and nap time. Having your friends sign your cast is something we’ve all grown up doing, but that trend will soon be over if something like the cast we’re featuring in this story takes off. Instead of asking your friends […]
08/18/2013, AIDS is a disease that has yet to see a full, 100% foolproof cure – although modern medical technology has more or less allowed someone with enough means to live a long and full life thanks to a cocktail of ever changing drugs, while an extremely small percentage of folks out there do seem to be “immune” from infection. Well, assuming someone walked beside you and shared that you could […]
08/14/2013, Wearable technology is a category that looks all primed to explode across society – and I mean that in a good way, too, with a strong suspicion in my gut that Google Glass is the one which will spearhead this particular effort. According to LUMO Body Tech, a company that hails from Palo Alto, California, they have managed to come up with their very own posture monitoring technology, and over […]
08/13/2013, I am not quite sure just how many people you know who actually cut off their own ears by purpose, or have their ears removed from the sides of their head by accident, but in either case, the victim will have no cause for worry where spare parts are concerned, especially since there are no miracle workers around these days to simply speak healing of a hastily cut off ear, […]
