People With Complete Color Blindness Given Their First Sight of Color

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, electronics

A small selection of volunteers who were completely color blind can now faintly detect a splash of color following retinal gene therapy.

Following the trial by researchers in Israel, three adults and one child who could only sense brightness of light found that after gene therapy they were able to tell a red object apart from its darker background.

Achromatopsia is caused by defects in genes that control cone cells, our eyes’ color-sensors. The approximately 1 in 30,000 people affected see all the vibrant colors of the world as blurry shades of gray.

Dissolving electronic device to monitor and treat heart dysfunction gets FDA approval

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, electronics

New gadget can map electrical activity and deliver electrical stimuli to stop atrial fibrillation, before dissolving into the body.

Nearly 800K people fall victim to a heart attack in the US each year. A recent study undertaken by a team of researchers at Northwestern and George Washington (GW) universities has developed a new device to monitor and treat heart disease and dysfunctions in the aftermath of heart-related incidents.

The device seems to hold promise for providing critical support during the days, weeks, or months following heart problems. According to the researchers convey that the new technology harmlessly dissolves inside the body and skips the need for extraction.

Neural wavefront shaping camera overcomes light scattering problem in optical imaging

Posted by in categories: electronics, neuroscience

Engineers from Rice University and the University of Maryland have created full-motion video technology that could potentially be used to make cameras that peer through fog, smoke, driving rain, murky water, skin, bone and other media that reflect scattered light and obscure objects from view.

“Imaging through scattering media is the ‘holy grail problem’ in at this point,” said Rice’s Ashok Veeraraghavan, co-corresponding author of an open-access study published today in Science Advances. “Scattering is what makes light—which has lower wavelength, and therefore gives much better spatial resolution—unusable in many, many scenarios. If you can undo the effects of scattering, then imaging just goes so much further.”

Safran, Terran Orbital to explore joint production of satellite propulsion systems

Posted by in categories: electronics, satellites

WASHINGTON — Satellite manufacturer Terran Orbital has signed an agreement with French aerospace giant Safran to explore U.S.-based production of satellite propulsion systems, the companies announced June 23.

Under the agreement, Safran Electronics & Defense and Terran Orbital will investigate opportunities and prerequisites for the production of electric propulsion systems for satellites based on Safran’s PPSX00 plasma thruster.

The PPSX00 is a hall effect plasma thruster, recently introduced by Safran for the low Earth orbit satellite market.
