A novel technique to manage diabetes non-invasively using static electric and magnetic fields has been developed by a team of scientists at the University of Iowa. Their new discovery has already successfully managed “2 major hallmarks of type-2 diabetes” in mice.
A team of scientists have built a circuit that converts graphenes thermal motion to harness limitless clean energy. The study proves an idea that generated a few years ago, which suggested that graphene being a single layer of carbon atoms may have the ability to generate power.
Researchers from Washington State University has just identified a genetic factor that enables mature skin to regenerate like a newborn skin. The discovery is said to be a major breakthrough in regenerating ageing skin and healing skin wounds!
A team of scientists have discovered that stem cells can regenerate nerves to support old damaged nerves and repair their motor functions in Parkinson’s disease. Although their study was based on a mouse model with Parkinson’s, it gives a solid direction as to how stem cell treatment could tackle this unfortunate degenerative disease.
Named as ‘the roof of the world’, Tibetan plateau has been an attraction to countless expeditions, adventures of spiritual and scientific alike. Adding to its long list of marvels, researchers recently found that Tibetan Plateau is very much active geologically from underneath, in the first-ever study of its kind.
A team of scientists from the University of Tokyo has developed a biodegradable paper patch that has microneedles to painlessly diagnose abnormal blood glucose levels in conditions such as prediabetes.
This is Stan, one of the most complete, largest and broadly studied Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons. Stan had been a very popular exhibit at the Black Hills Institute in the USA for decades and it is now being listed to auctioned by Christie’s the Art company.
The newly unveiled cargo ship design, ‘Oceanbird’ from Wallenius Marine is going to be wind-powered with reduced emissions by up to 90%. Taking a lesson back from the beginning of voyages, Oceanbird will carry a cargo of up to 7000 cars at a time with the help of wind.
A team of scientists have developed the world’s smallest ultrasound detector which is about one-hundredth of a human hair strand. It is built upon a silicon chip that has mini photonics circuits on the top. And this micro gadget can also get super-high-resolution images in the smallest scale which was thought to be impossible before.
Accurately diagnosing and treating patients who are halfway around the world is going to be an easy task with the latest Medical robotic hand that has special skin. A team of researchers has made this possible with a new generation robotic hand that has smart electronic skin.
Anthropologists have discovered a 1.8 million years old early hominin settlement in Olduvai Gorge in northern Tanzania with some interesting evidence. The place has enough proof to say that some of our early ancestors settled and hunted there.
Using novel gene-editing techniques, a team of scientists successfully turned infertile livestock into carrying fertile sperms of other animals in the same species by becoming, ‘surrogate sires’. In their study sterile mice, pigs, goats and cattle were made to produce sperm that has only the donor’s genetic traits.
Imaging the very complex web of nerves in the brain has been made possible by a team of scientists at Harvard Medical School. The new technique is called, “X-ray holographic nano-tomography (XNH)” and can map neural circuits in high-resolution imaging.
Netherland born, Stella Era is a new smart Solar-powered car, that powers itself and can charge other electric vehicles. This latest adding to the solar-powered automobiles was proudly presented by the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) yesterday.
A team of material scientists in Australia has given defence drones the chameleon effect, letting it change colour matching the background. The drones are made of lightweight panels that are able to change colour on demand, giving a solution for one of the main issues any surveilling drone has, which is the changing background.
