Clothes that grow with your child

19693701_389152281481796_7868323668108422138_o (1)

Petit Pli creates advanced technical children’s clothing . Children grow 7 sizes in their first 2 years and this equates to wasted clothing. The versatile waterproof clothes made by Petit Pli are pleated in such a way that they can grow bi-directionally to custom fit a range of sizes. The continuous size adjustment is a new way of approaching garment design, one suitable to high growth rates and discrepancies in children’s sizes. Petit Pli uses technical materials that are ultra-lightweight, waterproof and breathable because children are very active. http://petitpli.com/

Art classes make medical students better clinical observers

IMG_2289

Penn-CHOP researchers have found that students who took a course in art observation significantly improved their clinical observation and professional development skills. The art sessions were taught by professional art educators using the “Artful Thinking” teaching approach, which emphasizes introspection and observation before interpretation. In a post-study questionnaire, students who received the art training indicated that they had already begun to apply the skills used in the course in clinically meaningful ways as first-year medical students. Following the success of the study, The Perelman School of Medicine will be offering this Philadelphia Museum of Art course to first-year medical students during the 2017 fall semester. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2017-09/uops-acc090617.php

A 10 sec check for cancer

IMG_2288

Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin have developed a pen called the “MacSpec pen” that can screen and analyze tissue samples for cancer in just 10 seconds when the process usually takes weeks. The pen, which looks like a white permanent marker with a cord down its back, is made with a 3D-printed surgical-ready plastic tip and uses water instead of gases and other harming solvents. The tool works by releasing a small water droplet onto a tissue sample and sucking the water, with some residual tissue, into a mass spectrometer to analyze the tissue samples in real time. With 93 percent accuracy, the researchers identified lung, ovary, thyroid and breast cancers using both mice and human tissue samples. https://www.google.com.au/amp/newatlas.com/macspec-pen-cancer-healthy-tissue/51238/%3famp=true

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/?

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/
