How to make a profit from rotting garbage

Landfills can make a profit from all their rotting waste and a new patent explains exactly how to make the most out of the stinky garbage sites. Decomposing trash produces methane, a landfill gas that can be used to produce electricity or heat. Since methane is a greenhouse gas and Read Full Article Here For…

Rodeo in liquid crystal: Unprecedented level of control over defects

Scientists have achieved an unprecedented level of control over defects in liquid crystals that can be engineered for applications in liquid matter photonics. Sitting with a joystick in the comfort of their chairs, scientists can play “rodeo” on a screen magnifying what is happening under their microscope. They rely on Read Full Article Here For…

Intelligent neuroprostheses mimic natural motor control

Neuroscientists are taking inspiration from natural motor control to design new prosthetic devices that can better replace limb function. Researchers have tested a range of brain-controlled devices — from wheelchairs to robots to advanced limbs — that work with their users to intelligently perform tasks.

Wearable technology can help with public speaking

Speaking in public is the top fear for many people. Now, researchers have developed an intelligent user interface for ‘smart glasses’ that gives real-time feedback to the speaker on volume modulation and speaking rate, while being minimally distracting.

Super sensitive measurement of magnetic fields

There are electrical signals in the nervous system, the brain and throughout the human body and there are tiny magnetic fields associated with these signals that could be important for medical science. Researchers have just developed a method that could be used to obtain extremely precise measurements of ultra-small magnetic Read Full Article Here For…

Scientists convert microbubbles to nanoparticles

Biomedical researchers have successfully converted microbubble technology already used in diagnostic imaging into nanoparticles that stay trapped in tumors to potentially deliver targeted, therapeutic payloads. Read Full Article Here For more great articles: Matter & Energy News

‘Google Maps’ for the body: A biomedical revolution

Scientists are using previously top-secret technology to zoom through the human body down to the level of a single cell. Scientists are also using cutting-edge microtome and MRI technology to examine how movement and weight bearing affects the movement of molecules within joints, exploring the relationship between blood, bone, lymphatics Read Full Article Here For…
