An impressive new study published in Nature is pointing to a new kind of treatment to protect the vulnerable from COVID-19. The research revealed an old drug derived from bear bile and used for liver disease can block a crucial pathway used by SARS-CoV-2 to enter human cells.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Coronavirus (COVID-19), Liver disease, Cambridge Universit
Ordinarily, the microcircuit patterns used in microchips are printed onto flat silicon wafers, potentially limiting the chips' applications. A new technique, however, lets such patterns be more easily applied to curved surfaces – and it uses "candy" to do the job.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: NIST, Microchip, Sugar
A new technique has been added to the CRISPR gene-editing toolbox. Known as PASTE, the system uses virus enzymes to “drag-and-drop” large sections of DNA into a genome, which could help treat a range of genetic diseases.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: CRISPR, gene therapy, Genetics, Genetic engineering, MIT, DNA, Virus, Enzyme
The leads that connect external pacemakers to the heart can potentially cause problems, either if they're removed or left in place. German scientists are therefore developing an alternative, in the form of leads that get absorbed by the body.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Fraunhofer, Dresden University of Technology, Pacemaker, Biodegradable
While the field of printable electronics holds a great deal of promise, the printing of circuits onto curved surfaces is still very challenging. A new technique greatly simplifies the process of doing so, potentially allowing for new types of electronic devices.Continue ReadingCategory: Electronics, ScienceTags: North Carolina State University, Printable Electronics
While 3D printing technology does allow complex metal parts to be produced efficiently, such items often deform when stressed and heated. That may soon no longer be the case, however, thanks to a new technique developed at MIT.Continue ReadingCategory: 3D Printing, TechnologyTags: MIT, Metals, Heating
'radical landscapes' offers viewers an intimate look at one of the least known and yet most important radical collectives of florence in the 60s. The post new documentary traces florence’s radical design scene through the legacy of gruppo 9999 appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Just like many of the flowers in your garden, rice has traditionally been an annual plant – that means new crops have to be sown every year. A perennial version is now available, however, which comes back on its own over multiple growing seasons.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: University of Illinois, University of Queensland, Agriculture, Plants, Farming
The many cells that make up a lithium battery pack are not all equal; some will degrade and die faster than others. New research out of Stanford has found that the whole battery can live much longer if each cell gets an individual charging treatment.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Stanford University, Lithium-ion, Battery Technology, Charging
A team of engineers has developed a new type of camera that can detect radiation in terahertz (THz) wavelengths. This new imaging system can see through certain materials in high detail, which could make it useful for security scanners and other sensors.Continue ReadingCategory: TechnologyTags: Camera, Imaging, Terahertz, Radiation, MIT, Samsung, University of Minnesota, Sensor, Sensors is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
