Sensing bionic limbs are here — and they work New research from Johns Hopkins University and DARPA shows how far sensing bionic limbs have come, proving that the technology is well on its way to offering real limb replacement. The breakthrough comes by way of patient interaction as much as advanced engineering, as work with real amputees shows how natural bionics sensing can really be. The researchers recount an episode in which they decided to trick the participant by stimulating two fingers, rather than just one — the patient immediately asked if someone was playing a trick on him, by changing the rules of the test. That convinced them that the sensing is both genuine and, more importantly, natural-feeling. The patient had responded to the novel input very quickly, without stopping to interpret the meaning of the signal in the brain.

Robotic surgery now used for sleep apnea in Austin clinic AUSTIN, Texas - Waking up all night, snoring, tiredness in the morning, being easily distracted and crankiness are all signs that you have sleep apnea. While you may think it’s just a matter of insomnia, you’re wrong. It’s actually a physical condition that can cause more than a bad mood. Dr. Matt Meigs, an ear, nose and throat physician at the Austin Regional Clinic said sleep apnea and lack of sleep are contributing factors in many deaths.

Plymouth robotic-surgery company snapped up by UK orthopedic giant - London-based orthopedics devicemaker Smith & Nephew is jumping into the growing field of robotically assisted knee surgery by acquiring Plymouth’s Blue Belt Technologies for $275 million. The debt-funded deal is expected to close by year’s end. Blue Belt, which had revenue of $19 million in 2015, makes a computer-assisted surgical drill called the Navio that is approved for partial-knee replacement surgeries. The computer allows a doctor to treat a partly arthritic knee by precisely drilling out a compartment in a patient’s lower femur bone to make space for a new metal implant. Blue Belt is already working to get approvals for other surgeries involving knees and hips, which could greatly increase the market for the device.

Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty to grab attendees by the thousand Much has been said and written recently about both the salacious aspects of Alexander McQueen’s lifestyle and about the complex, densely referenced mind which conceived some of the most beautiful dresses of our times. Both these angles miss the point. The Savage Beauty exhibition, which opens at the V&A on Saturday, doesn’t. Which is why it is not just an accomplished show or a beautiful one, but – much more importantly – a brilliant and absorbing experience.

Ex Machina Movie Review & Film Summary (2015) Real science fiction is about ideas, which means that real science fiction is rarely seen on movie screens, a commercially minded canvas that's more at ease with sensation and spectacle. What you more often get from movies is something that could be called "science fiction-flavored product"—a work that has a few of the superficial trappings of the genre, such as futuristic production design and somewhat satirical or sociological observations about humanity, but that eventually abandons its pretense for fear of alienating or boring the audience and gives way to more conventional action or horror trappings, forgetting about whatever made it seem unusual to begin with. "Ex Machina," the directorial debut by novelist and screenwriter Alex Garland ("28 Days Later," "Sunshine"), is a rare and welcome exception to that norm.

Channel 4 Gemma Chan as Anita in Humans Or perhaps you’re waiting for Charlie Brooker to write the next instalment of Black Mirror?

Cicret Bracelet Review I’ve been optically discerning some people reblogging a set of gifs or video of the ”Cicret Bracelet” some equipment that sends out an image projected from the bracelet to the skin of your arm. I don’t take too long to authentically read about the “product”, read about the group and visually examine the video to come to the overall conclusion that it’s most likely a sizable voluminous scam. The group is asking for 700,000 euros in order to make a prototype, just for 1 bracelet, though the first 300,000 euros is going towards an app.

World faces challenge as technologies lengthen life expectancies, biologist says Stanford Report, March 1, 2006 By Melissa Fusco Shripad Tuljapurkar In the 21st century, state-of-the-art anti-aging technologies may extend human lifespans at an unprecedented rate, bringing with them a host of social and economic challenges, says biologist Shripad Tuljapurkar of Stanford University. The combined impact of these medical advances would have major implications for the global community in the new century. Tuljapurkar, the Dean and Virginia Morrison Professor of Population Studies, will give a talk Feb. 17 on the demographic and economic consequences of anti-aging therapies at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in St. Pins 'obsolete within five years' - and pay with mobile or fingerprints instead So-called "personal identification numbers" were invented in the 1960s with the introduction of cash machines and there are around 10,000 different variations but because it can be written down or guessed, criminals are able to exploit this weakness. Customers who write down their Pin, even in a disguised form, will be considered "negligent" under banking rules which means their bank does not have to return stolen money.
