A solar system that follows the sun like a flower

IMG_2277

Smartflower is a fully integrated, all-in-one solar system that can be installed anywhere. If you ever have to move it, smartflower can be packed up and moved to a new site. Its smart tracking makes the most of the sun’s rays to generate energy. When the sun rises it automatically unfolds and starts producing electricity for you. When the sun sets it automatically folds itself back into a secure position and waits for sunrise. http://smartflowersolar.com/

A chocolate breakthrough

IMG_2267

The new Ruby chocolate offers a whole new flavour. Unlike milk, dark and white, Ruby chocolate is silky and fruity, not sweet, bitter or milky. The berry flavour is all natural, as is the colour. It’s made from the ruby cocoa bean through a unique processing that unlocks the flavour and colour naturally present in the ruby bean. No berries,  berry flavour or colour are added. It has already been tested by global research agencies who have validated Ruby as a fourth type of chocolate. This discovery is regarded as a breakthrough for the chocolate and confectionery industries. https://www.springwise.com/leading-manufacturer-reveals-new-flavour-chocolate/?

A 3D printed device that could help you sleep better

IMG_2266

Sleep apnoea is a condition where the air passage in your throat becomes blocked during sleep and causes you to stop breathing. A new CSIRO-made solution can help. It’s a 3D-printed titanium mouthguard that lets air flow freely for you while you sleep. A clinical trial showed that 100% of patients experienced a significant reduction in snoring with 82% eliminating snoring completely. www.oventus.com.au

Using AI to detect diabetic eye disease

IMG_2264

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a serious eye condition that can cause vision loss or even blindness. It affects about one in three people with diabetes. CSR researchers have just finished trialling a world-first, artificial intelligence-driven technology that enables GPs to scan people for DR. This technology detected signs of DR as effectively as the ophthalmologist. It could reduce unnecessary referrals, potentially reduce waiting periods for patients, and help ophthalmologists focus on patients who need treatment and surgery. https://blog.csiro.au/eyes-using-ai-detect-diabetic-eye-disease/

New cancer treatment- gene therapies

IMG_2263

Scientists are researching ways of deactivating or repairing faulty DNA within people’s bodies, another pathway that could lead to breakthrough cures. Specialists take a patient’s immune cells and reprogram them with a new gene that instructs them to detect and kill specific cancer cells. They then inject those reprogrammed cells back into patients’ bodies, where they go to work destroying deadly malignancies. In a clinical trial, 83 percent of patients saw remission within three months. This technique is one of several classified as “gene therapies.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/a-new-cancer-drug-may-be-the-first-in-a-line-of-revolutionary-treatments/2017/09/10/d1526d92-8e82-11e7-8df5-c2e5cf46c1e2_story.html?

Melanoma breakthrough

IMG_2261

Australian researchers believe they have made an important step toward curing melanoma after its spread from the skin to the lymph nodes. Two international drug trials – led by investigators at Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) – have proven successful in preventing the spread of the disease in Stage III melanoma patients whose tumours had been surgically removed. If identified early, melanoma is easily cured via surgical removal from the skin surface. However for about 15 per cent of melanoma patients the disease has spread to the lymph nodes which is classified as Stage III melanoma. Australia has one of the highest incidences of melanoma in the world.  http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2017/09/11/we-now-have-ammunition-breakthrough-fight-against-melanoma

An office under a bridge

imrs (1)

With space at a premium, particularly by the water, this is a novel solution. A designer in Spain has built a minimalist office between the girders of a large, concrete bridge. At one end of the rails there are items that adorn a typical office — shelves, plants, framed pictures, a desk and a chair. Doors fold outward, giving you the option of opening up the office to the outside world. At night, the doors can be closed and bedding stored on the shelves above you to spend the night. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/09/08/this-man-created-a-mysterious-office-suspended-underneath-a-bridge/?

A smarter private prison

IMG_2251

The New Zealand government is experimenting with a private prison model designed to discourage inmates from returning. The Auckland South Correctional Facility, known as Wiri, is the largest privately run prison in New Zealand. But what sets it apart is its bold application of an approach called payment-by-results, which links payments to outcomes. For Wiri, those outcomes include a 10 percent reduction in the rate of recidivism. This model contrasts with others in the US where private prisons gain revenue the more people are imprisoned. This year, Geo Group, the second-largest prison operator in the U.S., will begin operation of another prison using the Wiri model—in Australia. https://www-citylab-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.citylab.com/amp/article/538506/

AR to help you adjust to driverless cars

unnamed3

With fully driverless cars expected to be available to regular consumers by 2025, augmented reality (AR) will play an important social role by helping you adjust to the new reality. You will have to learn to trust driverless cars. You’ll want to know what is happening in the car: why it chooses the specific lane, which cars are around, how busy one or another road is, how the route is being calculated. AR is a natural way to visualize the decision processes in the car so you feel safer and more comfortable. Automotive AR  could use a combiner glass with a holographic film on it, which works as a lens and reflects only certain wavelengths. You will be able to look through the combiner glass in front of the windshield and see the projected video or interactive interface. https://venturebeat.com/2017/08/23/ar-will-drive-the-evolution-of-automated-cars/
