For some time now, the eating of walnuts has been associated with feelings of fullness. Recently, a study conducted by scientists at the Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) uncovered what's actually going on in the brain to make this happen. The findings could lead to future treatments for obesity.

Smart soccer ball keeps its brains in your phone

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 18:05:11 +0000

(image)

We've already seen a couple of "smart" soccer balls with integrated sensors that track parameters such as the ball's spin and trajectory. Well, the DribbleUp takes a different approach to smart training. It doesn't feature any onboard electronics, but instead has markings that allow it to be tracked by a free iOS/Android app.

World's biggest underground bike parking center opens in Utrecht

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 15:30:39 +0000

(image)

Anyone visiting the Netherlands will immediately notice how crazy the locals are for two-wheeled transport. Bikes are everywhere, which can make finding somewhere to park up a bit of a problem. Cyclists in Utrecht started using a three-storey parking garage under the train station last week, ahead of the official opening on August 21. It already boasts thousands of spaces, but when complete, it will be the world's largest parking facility for bikes.

3D-printable robot arm is a sign language interpreter

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 10:17:36 +0000

(image)

A team from the University of Antwerp is developing a robotic sign language interpreter. The first version of the robot hand, named Project Aslan, is mostly 3D-printed and can translate text into fingerspelling gestures, but the team's ultimate goal is to build a two-armed robot with an expressive face, to convey the full complexity of sign language.

Double-barreled attack shows potential in quest for cancer vaccine

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 07:35:32 +0000

(image)

In experiments on mice, researchers at Duke University have found that combining two different techniques for fighting cancer is more effective than either treatment is on its own. In one case, the mouse's immune system not only destroyed the tumor, but stayed strong enough to ward off a later injection of cancer cells, raising hopes that the strategy could one day lead to a viable cancer vaccine.

Probiotic cure for peanut allergies shows long-term success

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 05:48:53 +0000

(image)

Sometimes the slow, measured pace of medical research is frustrating. On average it takes about 12 years for a new drug to move from discovery to general practice, but each step towards approval is important as it validates whether or not these new medicines actually work and are safe. A new four-year follow-up study on the efficacy of a probiotic-based peanut allergy cure has revealed the majority of the original participants are still displaying tolerance to peanuts, paving the way for the final phase of trials to bring the treatment to the public.

3-mile asteroid is the largest Earth-buzzing object NASA's ever seen

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 04:13:11 +0000

(image)

Asteroids whizz past Earth on a regular basis, and thankfully they're usually only a few meters wide. But next month we're due for a close encounter with a monster space rock measuring 4.4 km (2.7 mi) across, making it the largest near-Earth object (NEO) to come this close to the planet since NASA began tracking them almost 20 years ago.

BMW lets the California air in with Concept Z4 Roadster

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 03:19:31 +0000

(image)

A year after BMW ended production of the second-generation Z4, a new Z4 has made its debut at Monterey Car Week 2017. The striking Concept Z4 Roadster wears some of the creased, angular bodywork previewed on the Concept 8 Series on its compact roadster body, creating an open two-seater that begs equally for straight, open strips of traffic-free desert road and furious, bluff-hugging twists high above smashing waves.

Machine gun-toting drone threatens to change combat forever

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 02:26:04 +0000

(image)

In 2015, a video showing a semi-automatic handgun being fired from a custom-built drone went viral, raising concerns for authorities, including the FAA. The development of such a DIY device was only a matter of time, as was the commercialization of the technology. Now Florida-based startup Duke Robotics has unveiled the TIKAD, a custom-built multirotor that can carry and fire various military weapons, including semi-automatic rifles and grenade launchers.

Review: Kuickwheel Serpent-C is fun and easy, but don’t get cocky

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 21:16:53 +0000

(image)

The idea of a small, lightweight, portable, and electrified skateboard like the Kuickwheel Serpent-C is intriguing. We can all imagine ourselves going Tony Hawk all over the place on a board that propels itself. We'd be doing that, of course, on our daily commute to work on that "last mile." You know, to give a practical side to the deal. The reality is that most of us can't really board that well. Not like Hawk, anyway. But that doesn't mean we can't have fun. Lots of it.

Alzheimer's may be detected early, via eye exam

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 20:29:42 +0000

(image)

Presently, for a definitive diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, doctors have to perform a PET scan of patients' brains. Not only is it expensive, but it also requires the patient to be injected with radioactive tracers. Soon, however, a simple eye scan may be all that's required – and it could catch the disease sooner than ever before.

(image)

Those little plastic containers of coffee cream may not look significant on their own, but when you consider how many of them are used and discarded every day … it adds up to a lot of waste. That's why Martha Wellner, when she was a PhD student at Germany's Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, created milk-and-sugar capsules that dissolve completely when placed in hot liquid.

Remote-controlled rodents? Brain magnets make mice move on command

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:22:15 +0000

(image)

Directly stimulating the brain with magnetic pulses has been shown to help treat migraines and improve memory, but now scientists at the University of Buffalo have developed a technique that lets them directly control physical movements in mice. Using what they call magneto-thermal stimulation, the researchers activated sections of the brain that caused mice to run, turn or stop, in work that could eventually lead to new therapies for brain disorders or even mental illness.
