Serving counterfeit liquor is not only unethical, but depending on the contents of that liquor, can also be dangerous to the people consuming it. It was with this in mind that scientists from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign recently developed a portable device that can tell fake booze from the real thing...Continue Reading Portable device detects bogus boozeCategory: ScienceTag
It's just a simple pair of earbuds and some stick-on electrodes, but this device could be what millions of people worldwide have been waiting for – an effective treatment for tinnitus. Human trials have shown precisely timed sounds and weak electrical pulses delivered by the device can reduce or even eliminate that ringing in your ears...Continue Reading Tinnitus reduced or even eliminated by
In our everyday experience, if you push something, it moves away from you. But objects with negative mass would turn that basic principle on its head and accelerate towards you instead. It sounds like science fiction but the idea is theoretically possible, and its effects have been observed in recent experiments. Now, scientists from the University of Rochester have developed a device that ca
‘the decoy’ is a spatial sound device that gradually transforms a self-contradictory message into an immersive sound experience, an experimental music composition that results from collective engagement.The post nuno pimenta creates a deceptive sound device that transforms its audio content over time appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
It seems like a big deal for the studio, and a significant bellwether for mobile game devs, so Gamasutra quickly talks with Simogo cofounder Simon Flesser to find out more about the decision. ...
Needles are usually seen as a necessary evil, but maybe they don't have to be. Plenty of painless alternatives are in the works, like microneedle patches, a laser-based device that pushes drugs through the skin as microjets of liquid, and a refined hypodermic design based on a mosquito's proboscis. Now, a pain-free jet-injection device has emerged from development limbo with a commercializati
Affecting approximately 60 percent of newborns, jaundice can cause brain damage or even death if left untreated. In sub-Saharan Africa, where doctors often don't have access to expensive diagnostic equipment, babies are 100 times more likely to die of the condition than are infants in the US. A new low-cost device, however, could drastically reduce that number...Continue Reading Handheld devi

The health-tracking potential of the Apple Watch might just be one of the device's stronger selling points. These capabilities are now set to expand with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today clearing the first medical device for the Apple Watch, in the form of a sensor that tucks into the band to detect irregular heartbeats...Continue Reading Heartbeat tracker becomes first FDA-app
Often in cases of failing hearts, it's actually one side of the heart that doesn't work properly. A ventricular assistive device (VAD) is sometimes implanted, to help pump blood through the ventricle (chamber) on that side of the heart. There can be problems with conventional VADs, however, which a newly-developed soft robotic device may be able to address...Continue Reading Soft robotic devi is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
