An internet “walkie talkie” that’s useful in an emergency

fire-2704064_1280 (1)

Zello is a free internet “walkie-talkie” app that’s very useful in regional emergencies such as a hurricane, fire or flood. In a few seconds of hearing your voice, an operator can guess what part of the country you’re from, if you’ve been drinking, what mood you’re in and whether you’re afraid or in distress. www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/08/31/the-cajun-navys-secret-weapon-for-saving-lives-the-human-voice/?

3D printing to produce car and truck parts

IMG_2211

Daimler, the world’s largest truck manufacturer, will use three-dimensional printing (3D) to produce spare parts, the latest example of how digital technologies are radically reshaping automotive manufacturing and its supply chain. Rather than shipping vehicle parts across the globe, carmakers including BMW and Volkswagen are experimenting with so-called additive manufacturing. This relies on sending a digital blueprint of a component to a printer which creates parts by using lasers to melt powders into plastic, glass, metals and even ceramics. https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/279090

Plates that trick you to eat less

mirrored-tableware1 (1)

A UK startup has come up with an idea that makes your plate look twice as full with food. Studio Playfool are hoping their creation could help a global challenge in relation to many people who overeat. Using visual trickery, the mirrored tableware, Half/Full, shows a mirrored image of exactly what is on the plate, tricking your mind into thinking you’ve eaten double what was originally there. As well as a mirrored plate, there’s also a cup and cutlery featured as part of the range, so you’re able to take part in any meal of the day. https://www.springwise.com/mirrored-tableware-tricks-brain-change-eating-habits/?

A brain-computer interface to treat stroke victims

IMG_2183

A preliminary study at the University of Adelaide in South Australia has shown the promise of brain-computer interfaces in treating stroke victims. The research, conducted by the University of Adelaide, showed that a stroke victim experienced a 36% percent improvement in a stroke-damaged hand, after 5 hours of treatment. Brain-computer interfaces are devices which can translate signals from the brain into computer commands. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05dq3hx?
