The BioPen and the Scientific Community

The advent of BioPens, “handheld surgical pens” that can bioprint artificial tissues for implantation, now provides surgeons with unprecedented control in correcting structural defects (1).  Rather than printing entire tissues and surgically implanting them into the recipient, these pens enable surgeons to add layers upon layers of tissue, each of...

 
 

Storing digital data in DNA

Storing digital data in DNA

From 80 kilobyte floppy disks, developed in 1971, to 1 terabyte portable hard drives, introduced in 2007, data storage has increased exponentially over the past decades. Now, researchers at the University of Washington, in collaboration with Microsoft, have come up with a new technique for storing data that could further...

Implementing Gestures in Robots Assists with Communication

Researchers in London have discovered that they can improve humans’ communication with robots by including hand gestures in their programming. Paul Bremner and Ute Leonards, research associates who work at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory at the University of The West of England, published a study examining the humanization of the...

 
 

A brief history of deep sea exploration

A brief history of deep sea exploration

 What Do We Really Know? Scientists know more about the surface of the moon than the depths of the oceans. Oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth, but less than five percent of their depths have been explored to date (1). Although it appears that little progress has been made,...

Past Visions of Transportation and Communication In this day and age, instant messaging really is instantaneous; it only takes minutes to send data from Mars to Earth (1). Communication has come a long way since the 1830s, when the first telegraph was invented in the United States; 1876, when the...
