In a move that could give a voice to the 300,000 people around the world who have had their larynx removed due to cancer, scientists at the MARCS Institute at Western Sydney University have tested a non-invasive artificial larynx and found it capable of generating a high-quality voice. Unlike existing prosthetics that rely on input from the nerves or muscles of the larynx, the Pneumatic Artif
Locals in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, got involved in the construction of this temporary structure called the People's Pavilion by donating their trash and lending building materials to Bureau SLA and Overtreders W. Once the project ran its course, the items were eventually returned unharmed. ..Continue Reading Something borrowed for something new: People's Pavilion constructed using loaned
Like other automakers around the globe, Kia is getting serious about electrification. In the coming years, the Korean automaker will build on its current collection to offer more than a dozen different electrified vehicles. A first look at what that electrified future might look like, the Niro EV concept is a fully electric crossover with a few other tricks up its sleeve...Continue Reading Ki
After patients have been under general anesthesia, they'll often require post-operative therapy in order to regain their full respiratory function. Although this typically involves using an analog device known as an inspirometer, a doctor from the Samsung Medical Center has created a more high-tech alternative called GoBreath...Continue Reading Samsung concept gets people breathing easierCate
Autonomous vehicles are getting much better at sensing their surroundings, but even they still need to be able to directly see a hazard to react to it. Now, a Stanford team is developing a laser-based system that may allow driverless cars to see around blind corners, and come to a stop before a child runs out or another car speeds by...Continue Reading Laser system may let autonomous vehicles
Last year, a study published in the journal Nature Methods caused controversy in the scientific community after claiming to find over 100 unintended large genetic deletions or insertions related to the CRISPR gene-editing process. Now the journal has officially retracted the paper after a thorough review found the main claims in the study were not sufficiently backed up by data...Continue Rea
A team of researchers at Imperial College London has developed a novel molecule that can block the development of multiple strains of the common cold. Early in vitro tests with human cells are showing exciting results and the team hopes to move to animal and human studies soon...

Amsterdam's Mokumono Cycles reckons that 97 percent of bicycles assembled in Europe actually use frames manufactured outside the EU. Brothers Bob and Tom Schiller are looking to bring back local production – to safeguard Europe-based manufacturing and to put a stop to the "unnecessary and extremely wasteful" shipment of millions of frames across the globe. Taking lessons from the auto indu
Scientists from ETH Zurich have developed what they claim is the "smallest and cheapest" electronic nose for sniffing out people, designed with earthquake and avalanche rescue in mind. The nose is an array of sensors to detect various substances which, when found together, would provide the crucial "chemical fingerprint" showing the presence of human life...

Here's a novel take on the tape measure: removing the tape. Rollova, as the name subtly suggests, is a digital measuring gizmo complete with OLED display that you roll along a surface or edge to measure its length. Its obvious strength is in measuring curved or uneven surfaces – whether you're dealing with up-and-down or side-to-side bends, or both. And it's digital, giving a read-out in y
