3:53 PM | Lab Grown Organs and Artistic Computers in Fifty Years?
The Pew Research Center released the 2014 survey of U.S. adults (1,001 participants, surveyed by land-line or cell phone interviews) regarding their views on technological advancements in the next 50 years. Over eighty percent of the participants said that "People in need of an organ transplant will have new organs custom made for them in a lab" and roughly half of the participants felt that "Computers will be as effective as people at creating important works of art such as...

1:14 AM | Will These Gloves Designed By A Famous Musician Revolutionize How We Make Music? (Video)
Imogen Heap is probably best known for her 2005 hit “Hide and Seek”. It’s one of my personal favorites and the song that introduced me to her music. But her newest creation is just as much related to digital technology as it is music. Seeking to create a more organic and human musical creation experience, […]

5:04 PM | Magical modular furniture
#MIT #design #furniture #technology #Milano Transform is a magical, modular furniture developed by MIT: The work is comprised of three dynamic shape displays that move more than one thousand pins up and down in realtime to transform the tabletop into a dynamic tangible display. The kinetic energy of the viewers, captured by a sensor, drives the wave motion represented by the dynamic pins.The motion design is inspired by the dynamic interactions among wind, water and sand in nature, […]

2:25 PM | Are The Netherlands’ Glow In The Dark Roads The Future?
On a half a kilometer stretch of highway in the Netherlands, glow in the dark roads have replaced streetlights for the first time. The idea, which won Best Future Concept at the Dutch Design Awards, was first promised by design firm Studio Roosegarde in 2012. The road markers have been re-painted using a photo-luminising powder (co-developed with Heijmans, a road construction […]

11:17 AM | New agricultural trends to feed the world
The agriculture sector needs to double food production by 2050 to meet growing global populations – a tremendous feat considering the challenges posed by climate change, water shortage and how the increase in farming land is not catching up with demand. That’s why scientists are up to their ears looking for ways to sustainably increase production of crops capable of withstanding different environmental stresses.  Read more

7:05 PM | Herding Cells With Electrcity Could Lead To Smart Bandages
Researchers have used an electrical current to orchestrate the flow of a group of cells, an achievement that could establish the basis for more controlled forms of tissue engineering and for potential applications such as "smart bandages" that use electrical stimulation to help heal wounds.In the experiments, the researchers used single layers of epithelial cells, the type of cells that bind together to form robust sheathes in skin, kidneys, cornea and other organs. They found that by applying […]

12:00 PM | A Parasitic Amoeba Kills Cells by Eating Them
Amoebas are fascinating single-celled organisms. They typically move about by having their internal fluid (their cytoplasm) flow around and they eat their food by surrounding and digesting it with their body, in a process called phagocytosis. Some amoeba are parasites, such as Entamoeba histolytica, which can infect people and cause a potentially fatal diarrheal disease … Continue reading »

11:00 AM | Why Captain America’s Shield Is Basically a Star-Spangled Supercapacitor
Captain America’s shield is famous for absorbing tremendous amounts of kinetic energy, from an artillery shell to a punch from the Hulk – keeping Cap not only safe, but on his feet.  What’s going on here? It’s tough to explain how the shield works, in part because it behaves differently under different circumstances. Sometimes the

My Science Fair project this year involved ferrofluids so this blog will talk a bit about these interesting fluids and what they can be used for. Ferrofluids (FFs) are liquids that respond to magnetic fields. They are colloidal suspensions made up of tiny ferromagnetic particles (usually ferric oxide, also known as iron III oxide), about […]
