The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, being developed by the Department of Defense is being likened to the one worn by the lead character in “Iron Man” for its qualities of near-invincibility. It can not only to monitor when a soldier has been injured, but also potentially heal a wound by applying treatment. The US Special Operations Unit, which is developing the suit, also is planning to include an exoskeleton framework with hydraulics around the joints to give soldiers extra movement, power, and strength beyond what they normally would have. A prototype of TALOS is expected in June, but this photo of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) WHAT is a sneak peek of what the technology may look like. (Source: DARPA)
Thanks, Debera. Yes, that would definitely be helpful technology to people who have lost their memories for whatever reason. i also know some people who would like their memories erased like in that film "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." I think I have actually seen technology that could make this possible, too!
Elizebeth no doubt its an excellent post and what can i do I am really getting fascinated by majority of the technologies I also liked the process of getting back the memory its an awsome one . Those who have lost there memories in any accidents or shocks now they can recover their ost thats great hatsoff :)
Elizebeth apart from the cancer cure genetically modified children is also a good idea and thougt if this is possible it will help to improve the living and lives of many people who inheret diseases . It can make lives easier no doubt a very good thought .
Indeed, Debera, this is the goal of targeted drug therapies--to treat only the areas that need to be treated so other areas are not affected. I think it's a bit of a Holy Grail of this type of treatment. Scientists are getting close.
Yes, Debera, I think that's exactly the point. The artificial brain will give doctors and scientists insight into how the brain works, not necessarily be something that will be used to replace a real brain in a human. That seems a bit too scifi and creepy! But you never know--with the way medicine is progressing, perhaps that will someday happen as well. I don't think I want to be around to see it, though.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
