Electronic ‘Smart Fingers’ Will Allow Doctors to O...

Someday soon, hospital patients won’t be hooked up to wires, large equipments and monitors, instead, electronic patches will be temporarily tattooed onto their bodies. Thanks to the invention of electronic circuits, doctors will be able to monitor their heart beat and vital signs without poking with instruments. Patients wearing neck patches will even be able to communicate with robots, who will translate throat muscle...

Meet the pioneers of remote-controlled medicine in...

At present, cells, drugs and even animals can respond to wireless signals thanks to the invention of Pralle’s nematodes. Since then, the confluence of nanotechnology, biology and radio physics – is proving to be a powerful research tool creating a new kind of science. Not more than a millimeter long, Arnd Pralle’s nematodes look just like small worms controlled by a magnetic field. When he switches on a...

Bacterial ‘wires’– the secret po...

According to a recent research conducted by microbiologist Derek Lovley at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, some species of bacteria may  possess the secret to more powerful electronic circuits to work underwater through their hair-like threads. The threads are known to connect with other bacteria and also conduct electricity. Bacteria uses pili to connect with each other.  Lovely and his team cut off some...
