Very encouraging technology development and trend that could have a valuable impact in the future of health care. Targeting specific cells could dramatically reduce the collateral damage on surrounding healthy tissue and provide a new break-through in disease treatment.
Elizabeth, I sincerely hope this is a very fast-growing field.
Beyond the molecular robots you've described, I've hopes to see true nanobot technology, ones that can be directed to a specific location in the body. Inoperable brain tumors would be a thing of the past.
For that matter, incurable wouldn't mean unbeatable. Such technology would permit going after the tumors each time they appear. Visits for treatment would be similar to weekly dialysis trips.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
