IDTechEx caught up with Sky Labs, a company based in South Korea. It was showcasing a ring-type wearable device for non-invasive continuous heart and ECG monitoring.
Robotic thread is designed to slip through the brain's blood vessels
Engineers have developed a magnetically steerable, thread-like robot that can actively glide through narrow, winding pathways, such as the labrynthine vasculature of the brain.
New battery gobbles up carbon dioxide
A new type of battery could be made partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. Rather than attempting to convert carbon dioxide to specialized chemicals using metal catalysts, which is currently highly challenging, this battery could continuously convert carbon dioxide into a solid mineral carbonate as it discharges.
A new generation of artificial retinas
Scientists report they have successfully developed and tested the world's first ultrathin artificial retina that could vastly improve on existing implantable visualization technology for the blind.
Flexible organic electronics mimic biological mechanosensory nerves
Researchers have developed artificial mechanosensory nerves using flexible organic devices to emulate biological sensory afferent nerves. They used the artificial mechanosensory nerves to control a disabled insect leg and distinguish braille characters.
Origami-inspired self-locking foldable robotic arm
A research team has developed an origami-inspired robotic arm that is foldable, self-assembling and also highly-rigid.
Five Hot Trends with Printed and Flexible Electronics
Europe's leading event on printed and flexible electronics, Printed Electronics Europe 2018, opens its doors in less than three weeks to over 2,500 global visitors.
Battery material with 5x faster charging speed
Recently, a team of researchers at the developed a "graphene ball," a unique battery material that enables a 45% increase in capacity, and five times faster charging speeds than standard lithium-ion batteries.
