You can also imagine how odd and alienating it can be to see everyone else wearing masks which almost cover up their entire face. Two interesting fellows, Simone Rebaudengo and Paul Adams, decided to do something about this in a project named 'Unmask'.   T ...
A sticky 'organ sensor' keeping up the weight of a 100 yen coin (Sunwon Lee) A team of Japanese researchers have created the first sensor that can stick to organs and measure strain and electrical activity. It is weird science at its best and the future of this technology still has to be seen but it could change the engineering of devices like pacemakers. It could also be applied to just about any surface, so the possibilities are endless.   This sensor is gel-based and is made up of ...
Time-lapse shot of an osteoblast cell on the surface of a cantilever. (via EPFL & PNAS.org) French scientists from École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) have created a new nanosensor that can detect life forms as small as bacteria. They are currently planning on pitching their new technology to NASA and the ESA (European Space Agency) for development of a grid of nanosensors that can be launched with future probes to detect extraterrestrial life. The technol ...
Aramique, interactive director at Tool, debuts a new work called Heart Bot, creating pictures of your heartbeat (via Aramique) Aramique, an artist and interactive director at Tool, has debuted a new work created with his group of friends called Heart Bot. Heart Bot is an interactive Art installation that generates a collective drawing in realtime using heartbeat input via a pulse monitor inside of a podium, seen in the picture above.   Aramique, along with Jeff Crouse, Matt Mets, Ranj ...
