Materials and microfabrication processes for next-generation brain-machine devices

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

Transfer printing microstructures onto novel hydrogel interfaces and customised composite electrodes could increase the compatibility and information transfer between body tissue and electronic devices.

Implantable devices such as pacemakers, cochlear implants, and deep brain stimulation devices enhance the quality of life for many people. Improving the integration of such devices with the body could enable the next generation of brain-machine interfaces (such as, implantable devices that can record and modulate neurological function in vivo) to monitor physiology, detect disease, and deploy bioelectronic medicines.

Tracking the flow of quantum information

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

If objects in motion are like rainwater flowing through a gutter and landing in a puddle, then quantum objects in motion are like rainwater that might end up in a bunch of puddles, all at once. Figuring out where quantum objects actually go has frustrated scientists for years.

Now a Yale-led group of researchers has derived a formula for understanding where quantum objects land when they are transmitted. It’s a development that offers insight for controlling open quantum systems in a variety of situations.

“The formula we derive turns out to be very useful in operating a quantum computer,” said Victor Albert, first author of a study published in the journal Physical Review X. “Our result says that, in principle, we can engineer ‘rain gutters’ and ‘gates’ in a system to manipulate quantum objects, either after they land or during their actual flow.”

An Eerie Landscape Becomes a Hunting Ground in Cyberpunk Concept Short Lost Boy

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, entertainment

A punky warrior races across a barren wasteland, pursued by a hulking cyborg. There’s not much more to go on in the visually stunning Lost Boy, but since it’s a proof-of-concept film, mood and style are the main attraction. It’s by PostPanic Pictures, whose visually-rich short Sundays received feature interest last year.

Colonizing the Solar System, part 2: the Outer Solar System

Posted by in categories: engineering, environmental, habitats, space

This is a nice vid but there are two things to note.

1. he does not mention Callisto in place of Europa. Europa gets enough radiation to kill you in a day where on Callisto you would not even get the radiation you get here on Earth.
