Stanford Inventors Designs Safe Way to Transfer Energy to Medical Chips in The Body

A very interesting video was published by Stanford University in which inventors describe how they re-designed batteries not to be bigger than a grain of rice therefore medical devices implanted into the body could be much much smaller.

Is This The Superhuman Robot?

Are we getting closer to a really humanoid robot? Here is a new step:

Larry Page Talks About Medical Records And Where Google Is Heading

Here is Larry Page, CEO of Google, describing the directions Google is heading at the moment including the issues of electronic medical records or artificial intelligence.

In an era when IBM Watson, the supercomputer, tries to tackle brain cancer, everything is possible:

This morning, IBM and the New York Genome Center announced a partnership to test whether Watson, the computer that won on Jeopardy, can sift through the genomes of cancer patients and help doctors pick drugs. This effort could hold the key to making DNA sequencing for cancer affordable, but there is a vast amount of work to do that will take years at a minimum.

How To Take a Moonshot Literally?

Recently, I’ve been coming across plenty of news articles and posts about the moonshot for health. It might be a coincidence but I just visited a team that is competing in the Google Lunar X Prize challenge. The Puli Space Team is based in Hungary but their moonshot is to get a probe on the moon which takes 500 meters and transmits HD video and images back to Earth.

With access to information, resources and expertise, as well as with crowdfunding now everything is literally possible.

The mission of Puli Space Technologies is to develop the new techniques required to routinely send spacecraft to the Moon, to explore new frontiers and to provide quality services for forward-thinking investors interested in commercializing space.

As the project has to be funded privately (90%), please feel free to help them through the Small Step Club.

A new way to grow bone: TED Talk

Molly Stevens had a great TED talk about a new way to grow bone.

What does it take to regrow bone in mass quantities? Typical bone regeneration — wherein bone is taken from a patient’s hip and grafted onto damaged bone elsewhere in the body — is limited and can cause great pain just a few years after operation. In an informative talk, Molly Stevens introduces a new stem cell application that harnesses bone’s innate ability to regenerate and produces vast quantities of bone tissue painlessly.

PillCam from The Jetsons Got Approved by the FDA

The Pillcam, a swallowable tiny camera that takes a lot of pictures while it goes through the digestive system, got approved by the FDA. Do you remember The Jetsons? They predicted it many many years ago.
