Flexible wearable sensor enables 24-hour blood flow monitoring

flexible sensor

The best medical devices for measuring blood flow today require the patient to first show up at a clinic or hospital, then stay very still during the imaging procedure. But an experimental sensor that clings to skin like a temporary tattoo could enable 24-hour monitoring of blood flow wherever a patient goes.

A 2D material that generates electricity from movement could someday be woven into our clothes

Model Release-YES

The 2D material is known as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2).

A transparent, flexible material only as thick as an atom could one day power our electronics, according to a paper published to be published in Nature. And the best part is it could generate electricity from walking, running and other everyday motions.

Future leaders will be flexible, selfless, and more collarborative: Study

 

81% of people in the surveys said that “power today is about influence rather than control.”

When people around the world were surveyed about the ideal modern leader, 64,000 people in 13 countries–from China to Canada–wished their leaders were slightly less polarizing and more collaborative.

Transparent, flexible ‘3-D’ memory chips may be the next big thing in small memory devices

memory chips 2323

A flexible, transparent memory chip created by researchers at Rice University.

New memory chips that are transparent, flexible enough to be folded like a sheet of paper, shrug off 1,000-degree Fahrenheit temperatures — twice as hot as the max in a kitchen oven — and survive other hostile conditions could usher in the development of next-generation flash-competitive memory for tomorrow’s keychain drives, cell phones and computers, a scientist reported March 27…

The Coming Era of Flexible, Frictionless Money

Two months after PayPal opened its platform, 15,000 developers
had used it to create new payment services

The banks and credit card companies have spent 50 years building a proprietary, locked-down system that handles roughly $2 trillion in credit card transactions and another $1.3 trillion in debit card transactions every year. Until recently, vendors had little choice but to participate in this system, even though — like a medieval toll road — it is long and bumpy and full of intermediaries eager to take their cut. All of that is about to change.
