Plant Nanobionics or ePlants aim to turn plants into sensors detecting explosives, warn of pollutants and environmental conditions such as drought

nanobionics

MIT engineers have created sensors that can be printed onto plant leaves and reveal when the plants are experiencing a water shortage. This kind of technology could not only save neglected houseplants but, more importantly, give farmers an early warning when their crops are in danger, says Michael Strano, the …

New technologies being developed to detect and predict cognitive stress that can result in failure of military Missions

cognitiveoverload

Soldiers often have to perform complex tasks in extreme conditions, sometimes approaching or exceeding the limits of their capabilities. Some of the missions the soldiers perform can take weeks, away from in difficult terrain like deserts and mountains which requires maintaining an incredibly high level of physical fitness. Around the …

Quantum Biology taking first steps to lead to fundamentally new technologies, including bio-inspired sensors

quantumbiology

Quantum biology refers to applications of quantum mechanics and theoretical chemistry to biological objects and problems. Over the past decade, growing evidence suggests that certain biological systems might employ quantum mechanics. In recent years progress in experimental technology has revealed that quantum phenomena are relevant for fundamental biological processes such …

Researchers at the University of Zurich have identified the brain mechanism that governs decisions between honesty and self-interest. Using non-invasive brain stimulation, they could even increase honest behavior. The results of their research highlight a deliberation process between honesty and self-interest in the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (rDLPFC). Researchers at Stanford …
