08/12/2013, GE as well as the University of Washington have teamed up, working on a “Diagnostics-on-Demand” medical device that is meant for use in the realm of infectious disease detection. This particular DARPA-backed program will focus on the creation of an instrument-free, paper-based, fully-disposable device which can see action in remote areas, considering how access to medical diagnostic equipment in those areas are extremely limited due to numerous reasons. With the […]
08/12/2013, Another day, and yet another robot comes to save the day. This time around, we have the help of the GuideIN Tube, which so happens to be a self-guided intubation robot that you can see in action in the video above. It would be interesting to see just how much easier life would get for those in the medical line and are in the business of saving lives. Just about […]
08/09/2013, Somehow when you take inflation into consideration, the six million dollar man does not sound so hot anymore – if you were to give him the moniker of the six billion dollar man, now that is another thing to consider altogether. Still, the idea of having enhanced body parts, such as a bionic eye is definitely enticing, especially when that bionic eye of yours is capable of doing so much […]
08/09/2013, Robots do come in pretty handy if they are programmed in the right manner and are headed in the correct direction of course, such as the SkySweeper which is 3D printed and intends to help lower the cost of inspecting power lines, while there is also a shark tracking robot that will do its bit to help scientists with a heart for the environment to keep track of the world’s […]
08/06/2013, When it comes to art, this can be described as one relative topic which is always open and subject to personal interpretation. Personally, I do not have the kind of eye for modern art as deep down inside, I feel as though it lacks the kind of skill required by the Renaissance masters of old, but feel free to disagree with me wholeheartedly. Having said that, we now have the […]

07/28/2013, Robots are most definitely helpful, and they have certainly assisted in ensuring the industrial revolution has moved at a breakneck pace. Most factories these days have robots do all the heavy lifting at assembly lines, although these robots are more of machines than the common bipedal form factor that science fiction movies employ. Robots in the realm of medicine, too, have helped surgeries be more efficient than ever before. Well, […]
07/25/2013, Let’s just say that you have always wanted to get a tattoo simply because you think it is cool, but never really got round to doing so due to so many reasons – the lack of time, you have not stumbled upon the tattoo design that you like, or even the potential stick you would get from your mate due to different ideological paths. Well, how about a temporary tattoo? […]
07/25/2013, Cleopatra reportedly committed suicide by having an asp bite her, as she felt that life is no longer worth living, and since getting a poisonous snake to do the job of an assassin is not a surefire plan that will succeed (just check out Sherlock Holmes as he beat back the “speckled band”), how about taking a more nefarious route? Gift your most bitter rival a 3D printer and have […]
07/18/2013, We did talk about the Scanadu Scout at the end of last year, but back then, it was more or less just a pipe dream. Well, fast forward to July this year and we bring you word that the Scanadu Scout will soon be able to usher in an era of Star Trek-like scenarios, where some might even call it a real-life tricorder. Coming in a sleek yet square form […]
07/17/2013, If you are a diabetic or are living with one, you would know that synthetic insulin and blood glucose meters are extremely important to ensure that life goes on as normal as possible. Despite such tools, however, diabetics tend to experience abnormal blood sugar levels simply because it is near impossible to monitor glucose levels continuously and to inject insulin in real-time with the right amount of precision. Wearable glucose […]
