  • New haptic arm places robotics within easy reach
    on October 20, 2019 at 4:00 am

    (University of Bristol) Imagine being able to build and use a robotic device without the need for expensive, specialist kit or skills. That is the vision that researchers from the University of Bristol have turned into reality, creating a lightweight, affordable and simple solution for everyday users.

  • Artificial skin creates first ticklish devices
    on October 19, 2019 at 4:00 am

    (University of Bristol) A new interface developed by researchers in Bristol and Paris takes touch technology to the next level by providing an artificial skin-like membrane for augmenting interactive devices such as phones, wearables or computers.

    (Dartmouth College) Project uses high-tech tools and time-tested techniques to understand where, when, and how cyanobacterial blooms develop.

  • All plastic waste could become new, high-quality...
    on October 18, 2019 at 4:00 am

    (Chalmers University of Technology) A research group at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, has developed an efficient process for breaking down any plastic waste to a molecular level. The resulting gases can then be transformed back into new plastics - of the same quality as the original. The new process could transform today's plastic factories into recycling refineries, within the framework of their existing infrastructure.

  • Lifestyle is a threat to gut bacteria: Ötzi...
    on October 18, 2019 at 4:00 am

    (Università di Trento) The evolution of dietary and hygienic habits in Western countries is associated with a decrease in the bacteria that help in digestion. These very bacteria were also found in the Iceman, who lived 5300 years ago, and are still present in non-Westernized populations in various parts of the world. The depletion of the microbiome may be associated with the increased prevalence, in Western countries, of complex conditions like allergies, autoimmune and gastrointestinal […]
