Rotex Introduced a biotechnology based ‘Smart Tattoo’ that have soft sensors that sense the skin and slight muscle movement to measure real-time, ECG, respiration, hydration, temperature, blood pressure.. and control devices.

US-based Rotex Incorporation, a biotechnology firm has upped the stakes when it comes to wirelessly controlling devices, as they have unveiled a disposable electronic tattoo that can be used to give instructions and pass information to systems. The electronic tattoos are actually sequences of ultra-thin and soft sensors that can form to the skin and respond to slight muscle movement. 'Smart Tattoo' can measure in real-time, ECG, respiration, hydration, temperature, blood pressure, blood ox...

Electronic sensors that monitor temperature and pressure within the skull

Researchers have developed a new class of small, thin electronic sensors that monitor temperature and pressure within the skull – crucial health parameters after a brain injury or surgery – then melt away when no longer needed. This eliminates the need for additional surgery to remove the monitors and reduces the risk of infection and haemorrhage. Similar sensors can be adapted for postoperative monitoring in other body systems as well, the researchers say. Led by John A. Rogers, a professor ...

ASCII – Computer alphabets

ASCII abbreviated from American Standard Code for Information Interchange, is a character-encoding scheme (the IANA prefers the name US-ASCII). ASCII codes represent text in computers, communications equipment, and other devices that use text. Most modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII, though they support many additional characters. ASCII was the most common character encoding on the World Wide Web until December 2007, when it was surpassed by UTF-8, which is fully backward compa...

Freespira a new, non-pharmaceutical treatment for panic disorder

A novel non-drug treatment, the Freespira Breathing System, can train individuals with panic disorder to adjust their breathing, reducing the number of panic attack occurrences substantially—all at home. Individuals with panic disorder have a different breathing pattern than others, even during times when they are not having a panic attack. Scientists have proved this difference through research that has shown varying respiration rates and exhaled CO2 levels between those with panic disorder ...

MIT’s Cheetah Robot Leaps to New Heights

MIT has created a robot cheetah that is futuristic, innovative, and is pushing the boundaries in robotics. Technology is evolving at a rapid pace. Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a particularly interesting field. Many important innovations and breakthroughs arguably are in this area. MIT researchers have created a robot cheetah which has the ability to jump over obstacles (almost like humans jump over hurdles for track and field). "I really wanted to... The cheetah uses a sy...
