Of the many people who receive artificial hips, approximately 10 percent will require replacement surgery within 10 to 15 years. This is due to a condition called osteolysis, in which the adjacent bone deteriorates, causing the implant to loosen. Soon, however, it may be possible to determine who will develop the condition, via a urine test... Continue Reading Artificial hip problems could
Bone marrow tissue functions like a conveyor belt for our bloodstream, pumping out billions of blood cells each day to keep our bodies in healthy, working order. Scientists have now made a promising advance in the effort to recreate this effect with an artificial version, a tool that could be weaponized in the fight against leukemia and other diseases of the blood. ..

Skylum Software, formerly known as MacPhun and the developers of the Luminar photo editing application, today announced the creation of a research and development division dedicated to artificial intelligence in imaging. The division is called the Skylum AI Lab, and it is a collaboration between Skylum and its sister company, Photolemur, makers of an AI-powered image editor.The team at Skylum AI
In the late 1950s and early 1960s, chemists Robert Bunsen and Henry Roscoe and showed that burning magnesium produces artificial light that’s similar to daylight. A man named Edward Sonstadt then brought the technology into the world of photography, and thus the idea for the photographic flash was born.The Atlantic made this 2-minute video that provides “A Visual History of Light.R
In a move that could one day lead to artificial transplant organs and sophisticated regenerative therapies, a UCLA team led by bioengineer Ali Khademhosseini has developed a new technique for printing complex bio-tissues using multiple materials. Using a specially modified 3D printer, it promises to one day create complex therapeutic biomaterials on demand... Continue Reading Breakthrough
the unusual staircase is covered in flexible, bouncy polyurethane foam that sinks under pressure and then resumes its original shape. The post artificial architecture creates translucent, flexible staircase made of polyurethane foam appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Although artificial hips allow many people to remain mobile, the things do wear out after a while, often requiring replacement surgeries. The need for such operations may soon become less frequent, however, thanks to research being conducted at the University of Arkansas...

this interactive object embodies the movement of the sun in real time as the earth orbits around it. The post sunny side up, an artificial sun reproducing the archaic typology of sundial developed by AATB appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Located on the back of the eye, the retina is a layer of nerve cells that convert incoming light to electrical signals – allowing us to see. Now, scientists have developed a rudimentary artificial retina, that could conceivably one day restore sight to the blind...

As the days get longer in the northern hemisphere, that means that the sun will be higher in the sky for longer periods of time, leading to more powerful and harsher light for outdoor shooting. How can you overpower the sun with flash (or monolight) and capture nicer-looking portraits? Tony Northrup shows us in the video below. You can use artificial light to complement or overpower natural lig is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
