Light, thin VR gloves put wearers in touch with virtual objects

Virtual reality motion controllers work pretty well at syncing up the movements of digital digits with your real ones, but they aren't all that good at recreating the sense of touch. Scientists from EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed new haptic gloves that could help users get in touch with virtual objects.

MIT combines several vaccines in a single injection

Someday, kids might only have to endure a single jab to get the benefits of several vaccines, thanks to a new technology by a team of MIT engineers. They've created a method that allows a single injection to carry enough doses for the first one to two years of a child's life, with each dose released at a specified time. Their secret? Microscopic coffee cups made out of PLGA, a biocompatible polymer used in prosthetics and implants.

The Future Of Health Care: From Implantable Sensors To Bionic Exoskeletons

The Future Of Health Care: From Implantable Sensors To Bionic Exoskeletons

In the near future, we’ll be able to do a lot of basic health care for ourselves. We’ll have apps and devices like Fitbit for our general wellness; household equipment like smart thermometers, digital stethoscopes, and the like, for tracking our vital signs; and even diagnostic kits for serious disease, like this EU-funded SniffPhone that diagnoses cancer.
