Since the neurons only need one-billionth the power of a microprocessor, they’re ideal for medical implants (Image credit: University of Bath)   The quest to design artificial neurons has been an ongoing one. It’s been a major goal in the medical field since it opens up the possibility to cure conditions where the neurons aren’t working properly. One team of scientists may have achieved this goal with their new artificial neurons on silicon computer chips. Their study was ...
Tomato plants could possible let out an ultrasonic scream whenever they’re under stress from water deprivation or from cutting a stem. (Image credit: pixabay) You may think that humans and animals are the only living things that let out a sound, like a scream or a squeal, to express their distress, but what about plants? It seems they do. I heard about this story a bit ago, so I dug into the story for more info.   Researchers from Tel Aviv University in Israel have discovered that ...
Researchers used underwater loudspeakers and played sounds associated with healthy reefs to lure in fish. Researchers say fish play a vital role in maintaining healthy coral reefs (Image credit: James Cook University)   A team of researchers from Australia’s James Cook University and the Australian Institute of Marine Science, alongside researchers from the UK’s University of Exeter and University of Bristol, recently used underwater loudspeakers in an attempt to entice fish ba ...
I don’t normally talk about this level of finished products, but I liked the concept. I think it could easily be replicated. On Thursday, November 21st, Amazon unveiled the Dash Smart Shelf, a smart scale that’s connected to WiFi, uses Amazon’s shopping services and automatically re-orders office supplies when they’re running low. Amazon is also offering 15% discounts on items like Bic pens, 3M Post-it Notes, Scotch tape, Keurig and Folgers coffee, and more for businesses ...

(Image Credit: Yamagata University)   A group of scientists has uncovered 143 unknown “geoglyphs” in Peru by using artificial intelligence and satellite imagery. The ancient drawings, discovered in the Nazca desert, dated between 100BC and 500AD and were created by removing the rocky black topsoil of dark stones to reveal light-colored sand underneath that depict different geometric shapes, people and animals. ...
Introduction Unboxing and Overview Build Quality Performance Tests and Comparison Winding Simulator Tests Motor Tests Conclusions Introduction  I have been utilising the Brymen BM877 alongside the recent MetraHit Coil unit, and with all the extra testing required on the MetraHit, the BM877 was mostly finished testing at the same time, just leaving this blog to write. Previous Insulation Testers Reviewed;   Keysight Insulation Multimeter Failure   Megge ...
Researchers from the University of Bristol have developed stretchable, multi-layer, skin-like robots that can be rolled up and inserted into your pocket. The robots, known as ElectroSkin robots, contain dielectric elastomer actuators (DEAs) and soft electroadhesives (EAs). Led by Professor of Robotics Jonathon Rossiter, the researchers published their paper in the journal of Soft Robotics. This new study could allow scientists to develop thin and light-weight robots that could be deployed in dan ...
