knows your touch
recognition isn’t the only way for your smartphone to be sure it’s
really you without bothering you for a passcode. A set of machine
learning algorithms lets a phone identify
you from the way you swipe
and poke it.
makes graphene transistors
process aligns DNA strands on a silicon chip and then forms
strips of graphene. The graphene is narrow enough to form
transistors, opening a route to ultra-fast, ultra-efficient computer
skin could augment humans
|University of Tokyo researchers are applying
robotic skin, which consists of pressure and temperature
the human body to serve as health monitors and prosthetics. The team
has been working on the technology for the better part of a decade (see
it some skin, TRN, August 22, 2005).
cancer drugs move to the next level: humans
A growing number of cancer therapies packaged in infinitesimal
particles are making their way to patients.
nanotech beat cancer?
Cancer will always be with us in some form, but the fear and
devastation it causes could be history within a generation. We'll have
the tiniest of things to thank for it.
