Off the shelf, on the skin: Stick-on electronic patches for health monitoring (4/4/2014)

Off the shelf, on the skin: Stick-on electronic patches for health monitoringWearing a fitness tracker on your wrist or clipped to your belt is so 2013. Engineers at the University of Illinois and Northwestern University have demonstrated thin, soft stick-on patches that stretch and move with the skin and incorporate off-the-shelf electronics for sophisticated wireless health monitoring. The patches stick to the skin like a temporary tattoo and incorporate a unique microfluidic construction with wires folded like origami to allow the patch to bend and flex. ...> Full Article


A robot walks into a bar... (4/2/2014)

The image of a joke-telling robot, that can tailor its repartee while performing a stand-up comedy routine, has won the overall prize in a national science photography competition organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.Comedy Lab: Human vs Robot, by Toby Harris, a Ph.D. student at Queen Mary University of London's Cognitive Science Research Group, stole the show ahead of many other stunning pictures, featuring research in action, which were entered into EPSRC's inaugural competition. ...> Full Article


New gel to promote bone growth on implants used in surgical procedures (4/1/2014)

New gel to promote bone growth on implants used in surgical proceduresA research group at Uppsala University, Sweden has developed a new responsive coating for implants used in surgery to improve their integration into bone and to prevent rejection. Neutron scattering experiments at the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France have shown how a protein that promotes bone growth binds to this surface and can be released in a controlled way. ...> Full Article
