Researchers have used off-the-shelf components to create a sensor device that is not only cost-effective but can quickly detect 32 different pathogens and has sensitivities on par with the state-of-the-art biosensors used in pathology labs. The novel device could have a range of applications, from monitoring the effectiveness of cancer therapies to predicting the course of viral illnesses.Continu
Researchers have developed a battery-free sensor that reacts to sound waves, such as particular spoken words, producing enough vibrational energy to power an electronic device. The novel sensor would not only reduce battery waste but could also power medical devices like cochlear implants or monitor buildings for faults.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Battery, Battery Technology, M
Researchers have used a novel manufacturing technique to create a minimally invasive, customizable sensor that can wirelessly record deep brain activity down to a resolution of one or two neurons. The device has potential applications in a wide range of neurological conditions such as treatment-resistant epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and chronic pain.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTag
Soft robotic devices often need to sense both mechanical deformation and changes in temperature, requiring multiple integrated sensors. ChromoSense technology, however, combines both functions in one simple, robust, color-changing device.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: EPFL, Sensors, Soft Robotics, wearable electronics, Colors
