    Mind melding to become a reality

    Scientists at Duke University have created the first brain-to-brain interface, allowing two rats located thousands of miles apart to cooperate on a shared task.

    The first of its kind, Dr. Miguel Nicolelis and his team engineered a system for the rats to communicate via electrodes implanted in their brains. Nicolelis hopes that the technology could aid future rehabilitation techniques for both physical and language restoration.

    MAN CAN 3D PRINT EMBRYONIC CELLS

    Scientists have for the first time 3D printed stem cells that could be used to produce entire organs. That means we’re headed toward a future where kidneys and livers can be mass produced…pretty exciting stuff.

    The greater the symmetry the more beautiful the face says scientific theory.  Artist Julian Wolkenstein has challenged the idea- taking portraits, halving them down the middle, and creating two entirely symmetrical faces derived from the same one person.  

    As evidenced above, some look very similar while others are strikingly different.  Those curious about their alter(ed) egos can download the Echoism app where Julian has collected over 40,000 symmetrical sets since the launch.

    WEARABLE ELECTRONICS SENSORS COULD BE THE FUTURE OF SURGEONS GLOVES

    A U.S.-China team has developed a ‘stretchy’ electronic sensor that can be worn on a finger, which could enable doctors to feel electric activity and cut tissue.

    CROWDFUNDING MEETS THE LAB

    A new start-up still in beta is giving hope to scientific institutions facing drastic budget cuts and a lack of capital by reaching out to the public for help.  Using crowdfunding, Petridish has helped to finance research projects and expeditions around the globe.  Users who donate become ‘a part of the team’ and receive insider updates, field souvenirs, and even mentions in academic journals.

    The InaTrap is a wonder of design innovation. Much more elegant than the typical bug zapper, and smarter too! The trap emits CO2 to imitate a human breathing, luring unsuspecting bug victims into its lair.

    Never struggle with a ketchup bottle again. MIT has created a non-stick coating called LiquiGlide to keep thick condiments flowing. The spray-on coating can be used on the inside of plastic or glass packaging to eliminate wasted product, not to mention frustration.

    The Tokyo University of Science has developed a lightweight exoskeleton which allows you to carry up to 88 pounds with little to no effort. The device is set for commercial release next year, just in time for anyone moving into a 5th floor walk-up in NYC.

    The iPhone may soon be able to read sodium and blood oxygen levels to monitor dehydration and anemia respectively. The phone would read a “tattoo” on your skin of injected nanoparticles that glow when exposed to sodium or glucose. http://bit.ly/nXZPrM
