3D-printed microneedles that can dissolve in your skin created by researchers

Taking medicine intravenously can sometimes be a painful and arduous task. And apart from simply being a little dangerous, most people are simply afraid of the needles used to administer intravenous medicine as well.

The solar energy industry is exploding with new technologies, including “solar paint”

Solar power has come a long way from when Bell Labs presented the first photovoltaic cell in 1954. Researchers are brainstorming all kinds of ways to improve the collection of solar energy, reported Green America.

Demand for a “dumb phone” is on the rise; Light Phone 2 is a minimalist’s dream

Smartphones have taken over the world. They’re with you when you wake up, you keep them close by throughout the day, and they are often the last thing you interact with before you go to sleep.

Physician, protect thyself: healthcare cybersecurity circling the drain

No one knows you better than you do. But thanks to technology advances and the continued digitization of healthcare data accumulation and sharing processes, we can also honestly say the same about your healthcare provider.

“Smart” homes of the future replacing role of biological PARENTS, thanks to creepy new Google patent for Big Brother system

The latest idea from Google goes beyond mere Orwellian Big Brother into full-blown automated robotic parenting. The company is planning a series of smart home technologies that will keep an eye on children and discipline them in lieu of their actual parents, warned an article from The Daily Mail.

Doctors SHOCKED as children no longer able to hold pencils due to endless use of mobile devices

Today’s children have more technology at their disposal than any generation before them, and it’s a bit of a double-edged sword.

Could Engineered Bacteria Implanted into Human Skin Produce Insulin?

Microscopic organisms can do amazing stuff. Yeast is instrumental in baking bread and brewing beer. Bacteria make yogurt. And now, thanks to synthetic biology, they might be the key that unlocks a revolutionary treatment for type 1 diabetes.

“Bacteria are excellent at doing things, and we understand these things,” says Dr. Yo Suzuki, a synthetic biologist at the J. Craig Venter Institute. “And one of those things we are exploring is if we can get bacteria to produce insulin.”

Wild new microchip tech could grow brain cells on your skin

A simple zap from a small chip could be enough to reprogram skin cells to perform other valuable functions, like carrying blood or even helping you think.

Researchers demonstrate a process known as tissue nanotransfection (TNT). When it comes to healing, this TNT is the bomb. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

It's usually bad news to have something growing on your skin, but new technology uses that all important layer as a sort of garden to "grow" whatever types of cells your body might need to treat an injury or disease, be it in a limb or even the brain.
