Yesterday, I wrote about the Electrolux Design Lab concept for 2050, Heart of the Home. To give you an idea of how out there Heart of the Home is (and I mean that lovingly), the kitchen's pots and pans are traced into existence with an index finger, and they don't need to be washed or stored, just erased!
Now, wait until you see what Philips Design has cooked up for 2050!
The large helmet is the ExAblate 4000, a magnetic resonance guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) device, by Israel's Insightec. ExAblate 4000 has been tested successfully to isolate and destroy the smallest of tumors in the brain, without affecting the surrounding tissues or bones. Now, researchers are looking at the technology to do the same with blood clots that can lead to stroke.
