Kirigami cools electronics

Scientists from SANKEN (The Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research) at Osaka University, Oita National College of Technology, and Tokyo Polytechnic University demonstrated enhanced passive convective cooling using cellulose nanofiber films designed based on kirigami, a traditional paper design form similar to origami. The difference when compared with origami is that, in addition to folding, kirigami involves cutting the paper as well. This work may enable small flexible electronic devices to operate without overheating.

3 Things You Didn’t Know 5G Could Enhance

If there’s one thing that’s consistent about technology, it’s that it is constantly evolving. As tech standards develop and innovations emerge, the way people live their lives also changes. 5G is no exception. The transformations everyone can expect from the fifth generation of wireless technology standards are only just beginning.

Amazon credited with intent to release wall-mounted Echo with 15-inch display

Citing a Bloomberg publication, the source said Amazon is working on several new additions, including an Echo smart speaker with a 15-inch display, a soundbar, a new version of the Echo Auto device and wearable devices. According to Bloomberg, some of them may be presented as early as September 28th.

New material system resetting the standard in orthopedics

Each year, roughly 6 million Americans break a bone and head to their doctor for a plaster or fiberglass cast. After six long weeks of keeping the cast dry and resisting the urge to scratch the skin underneath, the patients return to their doctor to have the cast removed and tossed into the trash, unable to be used again. Mohammad Islam, Lining Yao and Carmel Majidi have created a new material system that could change this standard in orthopedics—ExoForm.

Digital-First Experiences to Pave the Way to the Future of Connected Healthcare in SEA

According to VMware, Inc., digital-first patient services and experiences are paving the way for Southeast Asia's future healthcare landscape. In VMware's Digital Frontiers 3.0 Study, VMware discovered Southeast Asian consumers' enthusiasm for digital-enabled healthcare services, with 66 per cent preferring remote, video-call consultations with medical professionals over face-to-face consultations. With more patients expecting improved healthcare accessibility, timeliness, and accuracy no matter where or when they are, emerging digital healthcare innovations such as robotics and telehealth will be critical in shaping the future of digital healthcare in Southeast Asia.

Part-funded by Innovate UK,...

MIT developed a toolkit used to create 3D-printed muscle-sensing wearables

In a nutshell: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed tools that allow users to create wearable devices capable of sensing muscle tension. The technology uses "electrical impedance tomography" (EIT), which detects the electrical impulses in muscles to determine if they are flexed or relaxed. MIT's Science and Artificial...
