Eight incredible nanotechnologies that actually exist today
io9    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The trouble with the word "nanotechnology" is that it refers mostly to an idea from science fiction and futurism: nanoscopic, self-replicating machines that can turn any piece of matter into another piece of matter in seconds. These do not exist. In the real world, materials scientists, physicists and biology researchers are working at the nanoscale to build everything from stretchy circuit boards and self-healing plastic to supercondoms and cancer medicines. Here are eight innovations that actually exist at nanoscale, and could soon change your life. More

UTA research team working on robotic smart skin
MidcitiesOnline.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Imagine a humanlike robot with skin and clothes embedded with sensors that could help machine accurately perceive the environment and better assist human owners. Such “smart” robots are at the heart of a new $1.35 million National Science Foundation project led by Dan Popa, a University of Texas, Arlington, associate professor of electrical engineering. Popa is the principal investigator of a collaborative effort to advance robots and robotic devices, improve prosthetics and enable those devices to perform tasks that people can no longer do themselves.

Ten medical robots that could change health care
InformationWeek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Robots aren't new to health care. Remember the da Vinci Surgical System, the surgical assistant the FDA approved back in 2000? Since then, the system has conducted more than 20,000 surgeries and has paved the way for robotic advancements in health care. In fact, vendors have introduced a number of new robots to better provide care to remote patients, help with various physical therapies and — similar to the da Vinci system — help perform surgery.

Senate cybersecurity measure worries contractors
POLITICO    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Critical Pentagon programs to protect classified data from cyberattackers and state-sponsored spies hang in the balance as lawmakers begin to confer on competing House and Senate defense authorization bills. The two chambers approved measures that make different cybersecurity requirements for companies that sell software to the government, and they set forth competing visions for how federal contractors should respond if their networks have been breached. In addition, the House and Senate specify different roles for the Defense Department to conduct clandestine operations in cyberspace. More
