In fact, I'm amazed that no one has built it. This device, which I call a "disease sniffer," detects cancer and other diseases by simply sniffing the...|
|7/19/2006 - There's a lot of talk about anti-aging research today, but with all the promises of longevity and even immortality, almost no one has apparently considered the consequences of human beings living forever. The more you think about it, the scarier the idea becomes.
Think of the people who currently...|
|6/29/2006 - A group of researchers at the University of Alberta in Edmonton have filed a patent for a low-intensity pulsed ultrasound tool that can re-grow teeth and bones.
The device is smaller than a pea, and massages gums and stimulates tooth growth from the jaw when placed in the mouth. According to Jie...|
|6/29/2006 - Astronauts aren't known to be arbiters of style, but their suits and accessories are having a stellar impact on the textile industry.
"The space program has, over the years, provided a catalyst for a lot of the progress we are seeing today in textiles," said David Raitt, technology transfer...|
|2/15/2006 - I've been reading news reports about how technology is advancing so rapidly that by the year 2050, we're supposed to be able to download our entire consciousness into our laptop computers. That right, just plug in your brain, and apparently you can download your memories and all the data in your head.
|1/12/2006 - Here's the latest science news that's worth noting:
My clone did it
Our faith in science is now restored! It turns out that Korean stem cell researcher Hwang Woo-suk actually didn't fake his research. His clone did. "The fact that my clone faked this research on stem cells," explained Mr. Hwang,...|
|5/22/2005 - In this article, we'll take a closer look at some of the more interesting products and issues we're uncovering these days. There’s a product that I highly recommend for those that want a nutritious food bar made with real food, and not a bunch of processed or manufactured ingredients. It's called LaraBar,...|
|11/10/2004 - Biomimetics is a fascinating -- and fast-emerging -- field of research. Simply stated, it's the science of looking for solutions that have been engineered by nature. Previous biomimetics efforts lead to the development of velcro, and now an entire expo called "Nature's Wisdom" is dedicated to showcasing...|
|8/6/2004 - Every once in a while, new technology emerges in the field of food manufacturing that offers the potential for a real breakthrough in the delivery of fresh, nutritious food products to consumers. Such is the case with a new edible food film that has been developed by researchers from the Oregon State...|
|8/6/2004 - NASA is developing new technology known as the wearable augmentable reality prototype, or WARP. It's a wearable personal computer very similar to the concept I have described in the report called The Ten Most Important Emerging Technologies For Humanity. These augmented reality wearable computers would...|
|8/3/2004 - Twenty years from now, when you're driving your fuel cell vehicle, you may be able to earn money by plugging it into your city's electrical grid when you're not driving. That's the promise of V2G technology, or vehicle-to-grid.
V2G technology takes advantage of the fact that gas/electric hybrid...|
|7/14/2004 - One of the greatest problems now facing humanity is the worrisome lack of quality education for each new generation. In industrialized nations, a quality education is attainable by very few people, and public schools -- especially in the United States -- suffer from a chronic lack of funding and education...|
|7/14/2004 - You probably noticed that nanotechnology isn't on the top 10 list. This is no oversight. Nanotech isn't on the list because nanotechnology has been so distorted by the popular press and researchers who add "nano" to their projects in order to get funding that, today, it essentially means "anything that's...|
|7/14/2004 - Vibrational medicine is a promising area of "technology" (it's difficult to call it that) that covers a variety of pioneering healing modalities now known to be far more powerful than drugs and surgery in improving the lives of patients. These modalities include:
Phototherapy: harnessing the healing...|
|7/14/2004 - There's no mistaking the significant influence of personal computers and the Internet on our modern way of life. Many of us have so quickly adapted to regular use of search engines and web surfing that it's difficult to imagine life without the Internet.
The Internet allow us to research products...|
|7/13/2004 - If you enjoy the thought of having a military robot running around your house, go buy a new Roomba. It uses the same technology found in the manufacturer's military robots that are right now helping the U.S. military function as more efficient killing machines in the Middle East. Althought I own an...|
|6/11/2004 11:50:24 AM - A researcher at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey has
created breakthrough new medical technology based on sound waves. The
use of sound for healing dates back thousands of years and is considered
a branch of vibrational medicine, but this new technology does something
|11/3/2003 7:38:22 PM - I chose this article because it offers a well grounded summary of the fundamental issues facing nanotechnology. As the article states, the requirement for social acceptance of each new technology isn't that the technology works, it's that the society believes in it.
Do people believe in nanotechnology?...|

|11/3/2003 7:33:30 PM - This article is a good, quick read on a new technology by Xerox that promises to manufacture LCDs at a fraction of today's price and cost. Simply put, the technology uses inkjet printers to "print" LCD circuits rather than etching them with far more expensive chemical processeses.|
