MIT Engineers program Human Cells to store complex Histories in their DNA

MIT biological engineers have devised a way to record complex histories in the DNA of human cells, allowing them to retrieve “memories” of past events, such as inflammation, by sequencing the DNA. This analog memory storage system — the first that can record the duration and/or intensity of events in human cells — could also … Continue reading “MIT Engineers program Human Cells to store complex Histories in their DNA”

Light-Driven Soft Robot Mimics Caterpillar Locomotion in Natural Scale

Researchers at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw, using the liquid crystal elastomer technology, demonstrated a bioinspired micro-robot capable of mimicking caterpillar gaits in natural scale. The 15-millimeter long soft robot harvests energy from green light and is controlled by spatially modulated laser beam. Apart from travelling on flat surfaces, it can … Continue reading “Light-Driven Soft Robot Mimics Caterpillar Locomotion in Natural Scale”

Interscatter Communication enables Smart Contact Lenses and Credit Cards that ‘talk’ Wi-Fi

University of Washington researchers have introduced a new way of communicating that allows devices such as brain implants, contact lenses, credit cards and smaller wearable electronics to talk to everyday devices such as smartphones and watches. This new “interscatter communication” works by converting Bluetooth signals into Wi-Fi transmissions over the air. Using only reflections, an … Continue reading “Interscatter Communication enables Smart Contact Lenses and Credit Cards that ‘talk’ Wi-Fi”

Intel Unveils Project Alloy, a Cord-less VR Headset providing “Merged Reality”

During the opening keynote of the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich unveiled Project Alloy, an all-in-one virtual reality solution leveraging Intel RealSense technology. The computing power is located in the Alloy Head-Mounted Device (HMD), which allows the user to experience VR untethered. That means you can “cut the VR … Continue reading “Intel Unveils Project Alloy, a Cord-less VR Headset providing “Merged Reality””

KOMBOS: This Modular keyboard enables you to carry Keyboard easily anywhere

Current keyboard options are limited to either large, bulky keyboards that are impractical for travel or portable keyboards that don’t have professional quality. A company named Kombos has comeup with a new kind of keyboard that gave you the same quality as a professional set of keys, but that allowed you to work with as … Continue reading “KOMBOS: This Modular keyboard enables you to carry Keyboard easily anywhere”
