The wonders of 3-D printing have only tapped the surface of possibilities, especially in the field of medical applications. Read all about the world's first 3-D printed titanium rib cage and the cancer patient whose life has been given new meaning.

Can New Blood Test Detect Breast Cancer's Return?

Read on to learn more about the innovative blood test still undergoing research in England that may be able to detect breast cancer DNA  months before it would appear on medical scans.

Artificial Chameleon Skin Promises New Developments In Wearable Tech

As scientists get better and better at making lightweight and flexible electronics, artificial “e-skin” is becoming increasingly viable. E-skins find application in a variety of industries including wearable tech, health monitoring, prosthetics, and smart robots by mimicking some of the key properties of the natural organ. Now scientists have developed an artificial skin that actually surpasses natural human skin by incorporating the color changing capabilities of a chameleon.

Smog-Sucking Vacuum Eases Pollution, Creates Jewellery

A new public structure just opened in the forward-thinking European city of Rotterdam is being described as a vacuum cleaner for the air. The remarkable air purifier is 23 feet tall and can clean 30,000 cubic meters of air per hour while utilizing just 1,400 Watts of electricity – about the same as a water boiler. The installation is just the first step in its designer’s proposed worldwide Smog Free Movement and has already attracted over $90,000 in crowdfunded investment thanks to an innovative product: smog jewellery.

New Sensor Based On Human Nose Could Have Multiple Applications

According to a recently published study, a team of researchers in South Korea has developed an advanced bioelectronic sniffer for detecting stinky molecules in water that could one day be practically applied to multiple safety and consumer-based applications.

Art-Inspired Solar Cells Track The Sun

Unsurprisingly, solar panels that can track the sun as it arcs across the sky show much higher efficiencies than those fixed at a given angle; on the order of 40%. However, for standard home installations, the energy expended to rotate the heavy panels counteracts the potential gains. Scientists this week report that cells based on the Japanese art of kirigami are able to circumvent this problem. Read on to find out how an old art-form is being used for thoroughly modern technology.
