All people expensive reserving a 5-minute oral session that will permit our dental practitioner to regrow our organic tooth, right? This can all be extremely feasible soon thanks to the Harvard-led team that effectively utilized low-powered laser lights to coax stem cells to develop brand-new dentine – the difficult core of the tooth.

Police are having to investigate a fourfold rise in the number of crime reports involving shop bought drones – including allegations they are being used by paedophiles over children’s playgrounds, peeping toms spying through bedroom windows, burglars scoping out people’s properties, and even cash point scammers recording PIN numbers.
When we started this decade, the Internet of Things was a basically a buzzword, talked about by a few, acted upon by fewer, a challenge to save for the future, like 2015 or 2020.
In an episode of the British dystopian sci-fi show Black Mirror, titled “Be Right Back,” a man who dies in a car crash leaves behind enough social media and other data traces to be digitally recreated, first online and then as a creepily life-like robot. Turns out, that scenario is not so far-fetched.
Last May, researchers at ICD Stuttgart revealed the Elytra Filament Pavilion—a vast, carbon fiber structure woven with the industrial arm of a modified Kuka robot. Now, in a thesis project led by Maria Yablonina, the same lab has managed to shrink the scale, from massive industrial-line robots, to a pair of drones that can crawl up your wall […]
A battery-free electronic patch that sticks onto skin like a temporary tattoo can be powered wirelessly by smartphones to help monitor health, researchers say. A variety of wearable technology is on the market to monitor life signs, but these mostly possess hard components that have to be strapped onto the body. Scientists have been developing stretchable electronics that […]
3D Printing is changing the world of guns, souvenirs, medicine, and now food. 3D printed food may sound like sci-fi, but it’s already a reality in some capacity. A company called byFlow has created a 3D printer that utilizes pastes of any variety to build food items in a few smooth movements of a wand. The limitations of flavor and design […]
3D food printers have been able to create very basic food items, such as sugar sculptures and very simple pizzas — but now a team of researchers at Columbia University has developed a machine that can make more complex snacks.
Talk about an immersive dining experience. . At Food Ink, the main draw isn’t even the food, but the way in which it’s made. You see, everything at this London concept restaurant is 3D-printed. From the dishes to the dishes upon which they sit, you’re eating at the throne of technology. Because who wants hand-prepared […]
Scientists are working to take “wearable” technology to a whole new level. Or, more accurately, to new depths. A group of Tufts University-led researchers recently announced that it created a first-of-its kind “smart” thread that can be sutured into human tissues. The goal? To collect data on tissue health, as well as monitor wounds or infections, all of […]
