Doctors have successfully implanted KPro on a 78-year-old bilaterally blind patient. Professor Irit Bahar and Dr. Gilad Litvin celebrate a successful procedure with the first recipient of KPro. (Image credit: CorNeat Vision)   The cornea is essential when it comes to eyesight. It protects the iris and the pupil, and once it's damaged beyond repair, it can lead to blindness. While cornea transplants are possible, there are fewer donors than people needing new corneas. This has led to resear ...
From using drones to transmit quantum particles to new quantum algorithms, quantum communication could be closer than we think. Could drones be the next method for quantum communication? (Image credit: XIAO-HUI TIAN, HUA-YING LIU AND ZHENDA XIE)   Scientists have been researching how to apply the quantum phenomena to build quantum computers and even new methods of communication. A recent breakthrough using drones may get us one step closer to a quantum internet. Researchers from Nanjing Un ...
Researchers have developed a new sensor that monitors a plant’s health for early nitrogen deficiency diagnosis. The portable Raman leaf sensor can be clipped on plants to monitor their health. (Image credit: Nature)   Believe it or not, plants do experience stress. They’re not worrying about bills to pay or political corruption. Rather, plants get stressed due to negative effects on their environment. This can cause them to get sick and put crops at risk. Researchers at Singapo ...
IKIN demonstrated a buzzing bee in a holograph. The device is expected to be released for consumer purchase later this year. (Image Credit: IKIN)   Many filmmakers and other creators have found inspiration from the original “Star Wars” film.   “Episode IV: A New Hope.” R2D2 projected a holographic broadcast of Princess Leia to Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker - this motivated scientist Taylor Scott to bring holograms to smartphones. The San Diego-based compa ...
The new version of the Battery Chassis add-on for the Wio Terminal has added an On-Off button and a Texas Instrument's BQ27441 Battery Fuel Gauge https://wiki.seeedstudio.com/Wio-Terminal-Chassis-Battery(650mAh)/  .   The fuel gauge is a great feature that measures your battery's voltage to estimate its charge percentage and remaining capacity. The chip is also hooked up to a current-sensing resistor, which allows it to measure current and power.  The fuel gauge interfaces using ...
