About the size of a handheld stopwatch, the 37-cc Virtuoso typically is implanted in the area of the shoulder. Leads to the heart enable it to watch for a racing heartbeat.Wireless implantable defibrillators are now able to wake themselves and send RF-based data to a bedside monitor, across an analog phone line, and, finally, to an Internet server that can alert a physician.

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
