Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

Thanks to tumblr user im2pac for putting this in the sixpenceee tag and bringing it to my attention. 

There is now a particle that enables humans to live without breathing.

As said by Huffington Post

The report states the “microparticles” are made of a single layer of fatty molecules, or lipids, that surround pockets of oxygen gas and are injected into the bloodstream via a liquid solution.

This was inspired by a case of a redhead girl who had severe pneumonia. Her lung tissues became severely damaged and she went into cardiac arrest. 

Dr. John Kheir of Boston’s Children Hospital says that this particle helped an animal which had damaged airways and kept it alive for 15 minutes without breathing.

The implications of this particle is profound and can help in many cases such as drowning. 

It works like this in case you didn’t get it: if someone couldn’t breathe at all (lungs damaged, bad airways) then putting an oxygen mask over their face would be ultimately useless. Oxygen gas is inserted into the bloodstream of the person itself this way, enabling them to live on.

This is so amazing

I know right, I wish something like this got more attention than Kim Kardashian’s outfit of the day, but sadly that’s not how the world works. 

Oh God. That last comment. Exactly. We care about all of the wrong things.

People of tumblr, let’s not be like the rest of the world. Let’s get this the attention it deserves.

MIT Finger Device Reads to the Blind in Real Time
“Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are developing an audio reading device to be worn on the index finger of people whose vision is impaired, giving them affordable and immediate access to printed words.
The so-called FingerReader, a prototype produced by a 3-D printer, fits like a ring on the user’s finger, equipped with a small camera that scans text. A synthesized voice reads words aloud, quickly translating books, restaurant menus and other needed materials for daily living, especially away from home or office.”
