Heart disease and heart-related illnesses are a leading cause of death around the world, but treatment options are limited. Now, one group reports in ACS Nano that encapsulating stem cells in a nanogel could help repair damage to the heart.
Before she joins Heroes of the Storm next week, Blizzard has a spotlight video for Ana. There are a lot of familiar elements here, from healing and sleep darts to grenades and a Nano Boost ultimate. The two things I'm most down with:...Show More Summary
In the future, we’ll commute on electric skateboards, eat apples that never go brown, and drink, like, a lot of Soylent. Or so it would seem from the vision of the future on display this past weekend at the Worlds Fair Nano. [ more ...
It's always amazing to see what tire manufacturers are dreaming up for the future. Most of the time, it's a concept based in the distant future when nano bots are able to repair your self-healing tires as your autonomous pod whisks you to an AI-controlled beachfront home. This time, however, Continental is looking a bit closer in the...
For today’s edition of Deal of the Day, here are a few great deals we stumbled on while browsing the web this morning: –Eufy BodySense Smart Scale with Bluetooth, Large LED Display, Weight/Body Fat/BMI/Fitness Body Composition Analysis,...Show More Summary
People build dams and huge turbines to turn the energy of waterfalls and tides into electricity. To produce hydropower on a much smaller scale, Chinese scientists have now developed a lightweight power generator based on carbon nanotube fibers suitable to convert even the energy of blood flowing through vessels into electricity.

While there is quite an array of Arduino boards to choose from, the Nano is a versatile board suitable for almost all DIY electronic projects. These tiny micro controllers make compact DIY hardware development available to more people than ever before. Show More Summary
Scientists at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) in San Diego, California have devised a way to optically image tumors with unprecedented clarity using quantum dots. These nano structures are tiny particles, only a few nanometers wide, that generate light of a specific wavelength when they’re themselves stimulated by a light beam. On […]
Apple this week has added another product to its obsolete category: the sixth-generation, Apple Watch-esque iPod nano. In being obsolete, the device is no longer supported by Apple customer service for repair or servicing. more…
Amazon’s Alexa is perhaps better known for her ears and dulcet tones inside the company’s own range of products, such as the Echo smart speaker or Fire TV. But courtesy of the Alexa Voice Service (AVS), which launched for developers back in 2015, the voice-activated digital assistant has shown up in a number of third-party devices […]
(The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) Researchers at the Hebrew University have created a nanophotonic chip system using lasers and bacteria to observe fluorescence emitted from a single bacterial cell. The novel system paves the way for an efficient and portable on-chip system for diverse cell-based sensing applications, such as detecting chemicals in real-time.
Those of you in the market for small but powerful gaming PC will be interested in Shuttle’s Gaming Nano X1 line of mini PCs.
(Lehigh University) Aerosol particles, says Xiaoji Xu, assistant professor of chemistry at Lehigh University, are among the many materials whose chemical and mechanical properties cannot be fully measured until scientists develop a better...Show More Summary
They may be tiny and invisible, says Xiaoji Xu, but the aerosol particles suspended in gases play a role in cloud formation and environmental pollution and can be detrimental to human health.
Insta360 is one of the companies in the 360 camera space that has been on an absolute tear. Last year it announced the Insta360 Nano, which is a popular iPhone-attached 360 camera capable of doing Periscope and Facebook livestreaming. Since last year, it also released an Android variant called the Insta360 Air and a professional […]
Swordplay on the nano level.
Imagine being able to see the signs of cancer decades before we can now. URI Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Daniel Roxbury and researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center have invented a technique that could detect a wide range of biomarkers that signal the start of cancer—many years before symptoms surface.
With their remarkable electrical and optical properties, along with biocompatibility, photostability and chemical stability, gold nanoclusters are gaining a foothold in a number of research areas, particularly in biosensing and biolabeling.
Are you someone who still uses an iPod every day? We're chatting iPods in the year 2017 in the iMore forums! We've recently had to say goodbye to a couple of iPod models (RIP Nano, we hardly knew ye), but that doesn't mean that there...Show More Summary
(World Scientific) Livia F. Rodrigues and the Nanoneurobiophysics research group from the Federal University of São Carlos, Sorocaba, SP, Brazil, have published their studies on nanomechanical sensing possibilities in NANO: Brief Reports and Reviews. Show More Summary
