Txch This Week: A Windowless Plane With A View

image

by Norman Rozenberg

This week on Txchnologist, we looked at new innovations improving current technologies.

First, we looked at a temporary tattoo that can improve workouts. The sensor sticks on skin like a tattoo and monitors athletes’ bodies as they exercise, generating real-time information about performance.

Then, we saw how a GE physicist has created a new way to scan for breast cancer. Her advance, inspired by her own brush with the disease, is designed to more accurately tell if an abnormality is malignant or benign to eliminate the unnecessary stress caused by inconclusive testing.

Ever wonder how figure skaters can glide on the rink so gracefully? The National Science Foundation and NBC Learn have teamed up again, this time to explain the science of ice

Finally, on our radar were the researchers who created the first accurate 3-D model of a strand of curly hair. Understanding how gravity and curly hair interact is important for both engineers and movie animators.

Now we’re bringing you the news and trends we’ve been following this week in the world of science, technology and innovation.

Txch This Week: Futuristic Food and Earth Through Alien Eyes

image

This week on Txchnologist, we looked at how researchers are working on methods to harness electricity from footsteps and saw how NASA’s Robonaut 2, the robot currently aboard the International Space Station, is getting legs of its own. We also examined how soft-bodied robots may soon be wriggling through our bodies in the name of healthcare and saw the state of U.S. manned space flight at a glance.

Now, we’re bringing you the stories, trends, and news we’ve been following this week in the world of science, tech, and innovation.
