  • Transparent loudspeakers and mics that let your skin play music September 19, 2018
    An international team of researchers affiliated with UNIST has presented an innovative wearable technology that turns the user's skin into a loudspeaker. This breakthrough was led by Professor Hyunhyub Ko in the School of Energy and Chemical Engineering at UNIST. Created in part to help the hearing and speech impaired, the new technology can be […]
  • Musical sensor shows bad medicine plays false note September 12, 2018
    What if a single musical note could mean the difference between life and death?
  • At last, a simple 3-D printer for metal September 4, 2018
    Used to produce three-dimensional objects of almost any type, across a range of industries, including healthcare, aviation and engineering, 3-D printed materials have come of age during the last decade. Research published in the journal Materials Today demonstrates a new approach to 3-D printing to fuse metallic filaments made from metallic glass into metallic objects.
  • Optogenetics – controlling neurons with light – may lead to cures for PTSD, Alzheimer's August 21, 2018
    Through the emerging field of optogenetics, a technology that allows genetically modified neurons in living tissue to be precisely controlled by means of light, scientists are attempting to gain a better understanding of how the brain works in hopes of discovering cures for debilitating neural disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Alzheimer's disease.

  • Microchips can permanently link patients with clinical samples June 29, 2018
    You watched the blood flow from your arm into a vial. The technician capped the vial and secured with a rubber band the scrap of paper containing your name and patient information. When you call to get the results of the test, you learn that it wasn't done because the paper had slipped off the […]
  • Printing microelectrode array sensors on gummi candy June 22, 2018
    Microelectrodes can be used for direct measurement of electrical signals in the brain or heart. These applications require soft materials, however. With existing methods, attaching electrodes to such materials poses significant challenges. A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now succeeded in printing electrodes directly onto several soft substrates.
