Ordinarily, cycling power meters are mounted on the crank, pedal, or sometimes even the rider's shoe. The AroFly, however, takes a different approach – it threads onto the rear tire's Schrader or Presta valve stem. It's also claimed to be the world's smallest power meter...

New research reveals that parents’ lack of confidence in subjects such as Science and Maths is discouraging the younger generation from pursuing those subjects at school and beyond. The study, commissioned by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), found that 43% of parents have heard their children say ‘I’m rubbish at Maths’ and 32% of parents […] The post Are parent
With the ability to be coaxed into different kinds of mature cell types, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) hold all kinds of potential in the world of regenerative medicine. One of the many possibilities could be repairing damaged hearts, something that will soon be put to the test for the first time ever in newly approved clinical trials in Japan... Continue Reading Japan moves to fa
Whether naturally or through IVF, conception usually requires an egg and a sperm to get things started. But now, researchers from the Netherlands have managed to skip that step and grow model mouse embryos by combining stem cells instead. The technique can help us better understand the early days of life, and may lead to more effective ways to treat infertility or genetic diseases... Conti
A lot of cyclists now use smartphone-based navigation systems, which means their phones are up and running the whole time they're riding. So, what if they want their phone to still have some battery life left upon reaching their destination? Well, that's where the Battery Stem comes in...

An intriguing new study has found that a single dose of human mesenchymal stem cells administered to rats bred to be high alcohol drinkers significantly reduced their voluntary alcohol intake. The research bolsters the growing hypothesis that stem cell treatments may be effective therapies to battle a variety of addiction disorders...Continue Reading How stem cell therapy could be a future cu
Researchers at the University of Georgia have developed a new stem-cell-based treatment for strokes. When tested in animal models, the technique was found to reduce brain damage and help the brain heal itself faster, and the results have been promising enough that human clinical trials may follow as soon as next year...Continue Reading Stem cells help patch up brain damage in stroke victimsCa
An impressive new study from researchers at Stanford University has found that mice injected with inactivated induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) display significant immune system responses to a variety of cancers. If the study can be replicated in humans this research could pave the way for a groundbreaking personalized cancer treatment that essentially vaccinates patients against many ty
Back in 2015, a team at Duke University made a world-first breakthrough, growing functioning human muscle tissue in a laboratory using cells from muscle biopsies called myogenic precursors. Now the research has leapt forward with working muscle being successfully grown from scratch using pluripotent stem cells...Continue Reading Working human muscle tissue grown from skin-derived stem cellsCa
Stem cells have incredible potential for regenerative medicine, but getting hold of them in large enough numbers can be tricky. Amniotic fluid may be a plentiful source, and now scientists from Lund University in Sweden have developed a method and device that can collect the fluid during delivery of a baby by caesarean section, to safely harvest large amounts of stem cells...Continue Reading
