What if we could bring extinct species back to life? It may sound like science fiction, but it is actually becoming a reality. De-extinction is the process of bringing an extinct species back to life using modern technology. De-extinction is a new word thrust into the lexicon of the 21st century as no longer a science fiction term but a potential scientific fact.
Engineers have always been at the forefront of medical advancement and have often invented technologies that improve quality of life. This is particularly true in regenerative medicine, where new therapies are developed to help restore function to tissues and organs. In this blog post, we will explore some of the current regenerative medicine therapies and discuss how they are improving patient care. We will also discuss some of the challenges associated with regenerative medicine and look at ways these can be overcome. Finally, we will provide an overview of some of the upcoming advances in this field that promise to improve patient outcomes even further.
We've long been fixated on using our bodies to control devices and software, from video game joysticks to iris-scanning security tools. You may only recently have gotten the hang of your voice-activated speaker, but now it's time for the next frontier: controlling devices with your mind.
Virtual Reality (VR) is one of the most discussed and anticipated technologies in recent years. With increasing advancements in hardware and software, VR is moving closer to becoming a mainstream technology. This blog post looks at the current state of VR, its future potential, and some challenges that need to be addressed for it to reach its full potential.
Most people would say that in order to be a successful leader, you must have years of experience and intimate knowledge of the business world. However, modern leaders don't need to fit that mold. They can be anyone – from CEOs to first-time entrepreneurs – as long as they possess the right skill set and mindset. If you're looking to become a successful leader in today's rapidly changing world, here are seven books that will help set you on the right path.
As countries continue to vaccinate people against COVID-19 and provide booster vaccinations to achieve herd immunity, it has become clear that economic recovery will take longer than most people probably expected and, in some cases, much longer. One obvious cause of the delay was the discovery of the Delta variant, and now the Omicron variant.
Recent research published by several different scientific teams suggests that there is hope for dealing with our problem of plastic waste. More than 300 million tons of plastic waste is generated each year and the issue of "micro-plastics" permeating the oceans is a growing concern.
Motors and Controllers' roles in advancing and increasing areas of operation are vast. In this infographic, you will find the top five advantages that motors with controllers can have on your company ranging from saving time to saving money.
The evolution of the human species is accelerating at a pace never before seen in history. We have gone from being hunter-gatherers to farmers, to factory workers, and now we are on our way to becoming cyborgs by connecting not just our anatomy directly with our machines, but our minds.
Innovation in drone (a/k/a/ unmanned aerial vehicle or “UAV”) technology has occurred at a rapid pace in the last 5 years. Cheaper and faster delivery has been one major catalyst for the heightened interest, especially among customer-centric, internet-based companies. Amazon made its first drone delivery in 2016 and other companies are getting in the game. According to research from Intelligent Automation, customers can expect 620,000 drone shipments by 2022. Package deliveries are not the only use for UAVs, by any means. Drones are in use currently in fire-fighting to reduce the risk to human firefighters, in remote surgical centers to transport supplies, and in medicine to meet an immediate need. Some healthcare providers are even experimenting with drone transport of human tissue. UAVs are of keen interest to the military as well. The U.S. Navy, for example, presently deploys drone submarines. Here, we take a look at some current and potential future applications for UAVs and the intelligent automation technology behind this ever-expanding field.
