Ingrid Fritsch, a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Arkansas, developed a new method—called magnetohydrodynamics—of using magnetic force to move fluids down small channels the width of a human hair. It is unlike current methods using electrokinetic pumping, centrifugal force, and mechanical pumping with microfluidic devices. Fritsch found that when the electromagnetic field is reversed in magnetohydrodynamics, the fluid flow reverses without need of mechanical manipulation. The finding may help researchers develop so called "lab on a chip" medical devices.
Machine vision and video streaming systems are used for a variety of purposes, and each has applications for which it is best suited. This denotes that there are differences between them, and these differences can be categorized as the type of lenses used, the resolution of imaging elements, and the underlying software used to interpret the data.
Comic books long have appealed to kids as a fun way to introduce reading and art without being overly didactic. Now a software engineer and project manager from Oklahoma thinks the medium can be used to get them interested in STEM careers.
