The Orion is a new implant that uses a small camera and video processing unit to help blind patients regain some of their sight. Renderings of the Orion device. (Image credits: Second Sight)   After a car accident left him completely blind, Jason Esterhuizen thought he would never see again. But a new bionic eye has helped Esterhuizen regain some of his sense of sight. He’s just one of six people who are currently testing out Second Sight’s new experimental device called the Or ...
The new technique could allow engineers to create new materials with desired properties for applications in data storage, quantum computing, and energy storage. (Image credit: UCI)   Researchers from the University of California (Irvine) have developed a new scanning transmission electron microscopy technique that allows them to view materials at sub-angstrom levels. The platform is capable of seeing electron distribution between molecules and atoms, giving insights into the roots of ferro ...
Introduction Unboxing and Overview Performance Tests and Comparison Winding Simulator Tests Motor Tests DMM CheckPlus Tests Software Build Quality Conclusions Introduction  Following in from the Sonel MIC-30, which turned out to be a very respectable and capable insulation tester, I have moved over to a manufacturer well known to me in Gossen Metrawatt. Whilst they offer numerous insulation testers, I was particularly attracted to the MetraHit Coil unit t ...
A powerful lightning sprite that was visible from the International Space Station in 2014. (Image Credit: NASA/ESA)   Sometimes thunderstorms are so severe that they produce immense lightning strikes and intense thunderclaps that may keep you wide awake at night. Here’s a tidbit of information about lightning bolts that may shock you: some are so massive that they can spread over multiple states. By analyzing data from satellites and ground stations, scientists have discovered a ligh ...
Researchers have developed a method that allows three people to work together to solve problems using brain signals. (Image credit: University of Washington)   Researchers from the University of Washington have developed a method that brings humans one step closer to telepathy, by allowing three people to work in concert to solve problems using nothing but their brain signals and an internet connection.   Their BrainNet non-invasive interface allowed three researchers to play the vid ...
