If any of you have ever played the Metal Gear Solid series, you'll remember that a lot of the soldiers had microscopic robots known as nanites in their bloodstream, which served to keep them healthy-recycling waste, destroying bacteria, all that fun stuff. That sounds like some absurd pipe dream from the realm of science fiction, doesn't it?
Tell that to IBM. They just took the first step in developing the technology.
Unless you're a professional gamer who's optimized their rig to the extreme, there'll always be someone faster. Maybe they've got a better mouse. Maybe they've trained harder. Maybe they're just naturally adept at computer games. At the end of the day, all that matters is that, when faced with a foe like them, the traditional keyboard-mouse interface just seems...clunky.
Razer can help.
The collaboration of a Harvard bioengineer and an MIT aeronautical engineer has led to the development of a device that can detect as little as a single nanogram-size cancer cell in a blood sample. This microfluidic device is essential for the earliest identification of a spreading cancer.
Did you know that our eye color fades as we age? Well, it does, and that's another dirty trick nature pulls on us. But more, or just as, important as our dimming eye color, the same pigment reduces its eye protection features. Here's a pair of sunglasses which can't restore the protection, but can substitute the protection, and you can get them without even having a prescription.
After the Tsunami that devasteted the coast of Japan, there's a lot of people in the field of robotics who have shifted their research in a different direction. Rescue workers put their lives in great danger every time they enter the field, and there's a lot of places they can't go, situations they can't be in: the risk is simply too great.
What if we could just send in a robot instead?
