This electronic thermometer looks like a wafer-thin postage stamp with a barcode of sorts imprinted on it, and it continuously monitors the heat in your blood.
A world where we can all have nano-scale tech embedded in our bodies is right around the corner, thanks to two women at Tel Aviv University.
Researchers have devised a new approach towards brain-computer interfaces that could give us control over machines with a thought.
Electronic skin, or e-skin, could be used on prosthetics for increased sensory perception.
NC State researchers use motion sensors to steer cockroaches wherever they want. Because that's totally not gross or anything.
While it may look like the extendable ears that a certain boy wizard and his pals have been known to use, this ear is something even better.
This gripping breakthrough has broad-reaching implications for the world of prosthetics.
In what the brains at Duke University are calling the "first-ever demonstration of a two-way interaction between a primate brain and a virtual body," two monkeys have been wired up with implants that let them "move and feel virtual objects." This could mean big things for medicine, entertainment and VR anime holodecks.
Brain implants promise a lot of things, from combatting mental degradation caused by age and disease, to boosting the output of some already healthy gray matter. Far fetched as it sounds, researchers and Israel just took a step toward that glorious cyborg-filled future with the successful installation of a synthetic cerebellum in a rat.
Creating direct interfaces between humans and machines isn't easy, because our bodies use more than just electricity to send signals. We also rely on ions and protons, and the same material that makes up the insides of squids and the outsides of crabs can be used to tap into these channels to control our cells directly.
