Lizard-inspired pens change ink color as you draw

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 23:00:52 +0000

(image)

A couple of years ago, a group of entrepreneurs successfully Kickstarted a little something known as the Chameleon Pen. In a nutshell, it's an art pen that changes color tone as you draw – for example, a green Chameleon Pen's ink progressively goes from light green to dark green as the ink is applied to the paper. The same group is now back with Chameleon Pens Color Tops, that change between two completely different colors.

Cancer researchers stumble onto drugs' fat-blasting powers

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 21:34:10 +0000

(image)

While the scientific inquiry process is generally linear and highly regimented, every once in awhile, happenstance works its way in. That's just what happened when researchers at the Mayo Clinic were studying the influence obesity has over cancer treatments and found, instead, that two popular cancer-fighting drugs melted fat off the bodies of morbidly obese mice.

Soft robotic heart sleeve helps pump blood

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 21:30:38 +0000

(image)

Heart failure is a multi-billion-dollar problem that affects 41 million people worldwide. While numerous promising studies, including novel therapies involving 3D printing and bionic heart patches, have been conducted to treat this condition, a commercially viable solution remains out of reach. Could a soft-robotic implant that mimics the natural motion of the heart bring us closer to one?

Guiding gadget shows cyclists where to go – but not how to get there

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:45:54 +0000

(image)

Many cyclists like to think that they're freer than motorists … better able to go where they want, when they want. If you share that mindset, then you might like the Beeline. It's a navigation device that shows the direction and distance of your destination, but leaves it up to you to figure out how to get there.

US Army's hoverbike takes flight

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 19:02:54 +0000

(image)

What started as crazy DIY project in an Australian backyard six years ago has now blossomed into a cutting-edge aircraft for the US Army. We've tracked the various iterations of the Malloy Hoverbike since inventor Chris Malloy first showed off a prototype in 2011, and now after teaming up the US Department of Defense the mechanical engineer has seen a military version of his little baby take flight, with officials hoping to use it for resupply missions to create an "Amazon on the battlefield."

"Green" plastic made from green needles

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:43:35 +0000

(image)

When pine trees are harvested, it's obviously the wood that people are after – the needles are simply discarded. Before too long, however, that may change. Scientists from the UK's University of Bath have recently developed a renewable plastic, made with a chemical derived from pine needles.

Material scientists untangle secrets of strong human hair

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:09:21 +0000

(image)

For material scientists scouring the natural world for inspiration, there may seem plenty of tougher customers than a human hair. But with a steel-like strength-to-weight ratio and an ability to endure stretching up to one and a half times its original length, our luscious locks actually have plenty to offer the development of tough new materials, like futuristic body armor, for example. Such ventures have just become a little more enlightened, with scientists studying the secrets of human hair discovering some of the key mechanisms that allow it such strength and durability.

Thync Relax: 10 days with the new "neuroscience" wearable

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:16:28 +0000

(image)

The original Thync was one of the most eyebrow-raising wearables of 2015. Sending electrical currents through your head to essentially zap your brain into either a calmer or more-energized mood, we saw it as a potential preview of a future where tech can replace drugs. While the new follow-up, Thync Relax, may be wrapped in a more consumer-friendly package, our experience with a beta version gave us plenty to be skeptical about.

Shiver me timbers: Fender plunders historic frigate for one-off amps

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 15:33:57 +0000

(image)

Fender's Custom Shop can pretty much always be relied upon to come up with something a little special for the National Association of Music Merchants show in California, which kicks off tomorrow. Its Master Builders bejeweled a bunch of guitars this time last year, and then hit the drink for limited edition Blues Junior amps that were skinned in cabinets made from Kentucky bourbon barrels. Now they've tapped into some naval history for a couple of amps encased in oak from the USS Constitution.

Pick-shaped acoustic mic gets its own preamp and DSP

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 11:16:30 +0000

(image)

Toward the end of 2015, IK Multimedia released a clip-on microphone/interface specifically made for acoustic guitars. The iRig Acoustic packed an omnidirectional microphone into a pick-shaped enclosure that clipped onto the soundhole of the instrument and paired with the company's AmpliTube Acoustic digital amp and effects app running on a mobile device to offer what was claimed to be ideally-placed, high-end studio mic performance. IK has now married the MEMS-type mic to a portable preamp and digital signal processing unit for the iRig Acoustic Stage package.

New laser surfs weird wave physics for improved efficency

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 08:11:51 +0000

(image)

A team at the University of California San Diego has developed a new type of laser that could improve a variety of technologies, making smaller and more efficient lasers for medical, computing and optical communication applications. The new laser makes use of an unusual physics phenomenon called bound states in the continuum (BIC), which keeps the light waves confined even when in an open system, and it can be adjusted to emit beams of different wavelengths and shapes.

Baffling, massive "wave" spotted on top of Venus' thick clouds

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 06:05:50 +0000

(image)

Something strange is going on in the atmosphere of Venus, where what looks like a massive wave was spotted among the planet's clouds. The Japanese Akatsuki spacecraft in orbit around our neighbor observed the baffling bow-shaped bright region stretching for 10,000 km (6,214 miles) across the tops of the clouds.

Caloric restriction increases monkey lifespan, benefits health

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 05:34:30 +0000

(image)

Can the lifespan of an animal be increased by restricting their intake of calories? The question has been the subject of study for decades, primarily through two concurrent long-term experiments using rhesus monkeys. Interestingly, these two studies came to conflicting conclusions, but by comparing their results and accounting for other variables, scientists have now determined that the answer is yes – caloric restriction does help monkeys stay healthier and live longer.

Lonely leopard shark learns to reproduce by herself

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 02:06:43 +0000

(image)

Sharks have been known to reproduce either sexually or asexually, but it's usually one or the other. Now, researchers have observed the first documented case of a zebra shark switching from sexual to asexual reproduction, which could have important repercussions for conservation of the sharks as an endangered species.

Ultra-slim camera inspired by bugs

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 22:54:39 +0000

(image)

Although smartphones may be getting thinner all the time, their cameras still present a bit of a problem. That's because they generally can't be made thinner than about 5 mm – after all, they've got that lens to accommodate. Scientists at Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering, however, have developed a flat camera that's just 2 mm thick … and it has 135 tiny lenses instead of one "big" one.
