This is fun, cool (I think anything that can manipulate individual cells is cool), and it looks like a major breakthrough in non-invasive technology.

This is great stuff - it is so wonderful to see the progress being made on non-invasive techniques. The benefits are wonderful - less blood lost, less time for recovery, more accurate surgical techniques. I hope this wonderful work continues to move forward. The ability to clear blocked blood vessels in this way would be such a blessing!

It's really interesting to see how much less invasive many procedures are today. When I got arthroscopic surgery on my knee over 20yrs ago, many were amazed by the fact my surgery scars were only small three dots.  Before that, the scars were a large Y shape or Z shape.

It would be great to see an update here when this continues with trials on live specimens.

It's encouraging to see additional, non-contact techniques and methods being developed to clear blocked blood vessels.

Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
