New Wearable Device Measures Changing Size of Tumors Below the Skin
Engineers a have created a small, autonomous device with a stretchable/flexible sensor that can be adhered to the skin to measure the changing size of tumors below. The non-invasive, battery-operated device is sensitive to one-hundredth of a millimeter (10 micrometers) and can beam results to a smartphone app wirelessly in real-time with the press of a button.

Robotic Motion in Curved Spaces Defies Standard Laws of Physics
When humans, animals, and machines move throughout the world, they always push against something, whether it's the ground, air, or water. Until recently, physicists believed this to be a constant, following the law of conservation momentum. Now, researchers have proven the opposite - when bodies exist in curved spaces, it turns out that they can in fact move without pushing against something.
