Wearable implants or more precisely ingestible implants are the new way doctors could evaluate a patient’s condition. ReMix: A bucket of animal tissue containing a marker and some tracking implants placed in front of a camera-looking device that will read the signals from the trackers. (Image via MITl) Why wear the GPS when one can ingest it? At least it seems to be the thought process of the engineers who created ReMix. A revolution in the industry of medical implants, ReMix carries a lot ...

The size of the devices on the market make them easier to carry, but nothing beats a camera-contact lens. Drawing of a possible design of the lens, photo from the patent application (Image via Sony)   Every time the term “machine” is uttered, it used to refer to a non-organic, unnatural entity made by mankind, and which functions through a set of mechanisms. In the past, machines had no personality and really felt lifeless, at least until they are powered on. Today, machines ha ...
In this tutorial, we will go over how to create a weather station using a raspberry pi and send events to Wia. This is an updated version of our old tutorial. There have been several changes to the Wia dashboard and code since our last tutorial. What You Will Need Raspberry Pi 2 or Model 3 B+ Raspberry Pi Sense HAT Node.js and NPM must both be installed on the raspberry pi. If you do not have it already installed, learn how to install node.js here. Setting up the Raspberry PiFirst, you have to ...
