DARPA plans on building Brain Machine Interfaces (BMI)

DARPA wants to build Brain Machine Interfaces (BMI) with a form factor of 2 nickel placed on top of one another.

DARPA has announced its interest in pursuing research and development activities resulting in the development of wetware, i.e., an interface that can connect implantable brain-machine interfaces (BMI) which will allow operators to control thoughts with their thoughts. 232 more words

New surgical sensor could revolutionise brain surgery

“The ultimate strategy is to have a device that you can place in the brain — or in other organs in the body — that is entirely implanted, intimately connected with the organ you want to monitor and can transmit signals wirelessly,” explained Murphy.That way it can provide information on the health of that organ, allowing doctors to intervene if necessary to prevent bigger problems.“And then after the critical period that you actually want to monitor, it will dissolve away and disappear.”

Adaptable brain-machine interface looks like a step forward

Nature Nanotechnology last week reported an injectable electronic mesh that overcomes the main problems with existing neural interfaces.

The flexible mesh is rolled up tight and injected with a tiny needle, only 100 microns in diameter. 297 more words


Endonovo Therapeutics (ENDV) Is UnderValued

Endonovo Therapeutics (ENDV) is a biotechnology company developing off-the-shelf regenerative products that no longer require the injection of stem cells. Our first platform, Cell Free Therapeutics, harnesses the biological secretions of cells to create therapies that can be immediately administered following injuries or to treat acute and chronic diseases. 231 more words


Seen At 11: Could A Microchip Replace Prescription Medications?

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — CBS2 has learned that prescription medications as we know them may soon be a thing in the past.

As CBS2’s Kristine Johnson reported, they could be replaced with tiny, implantable microchips that can treat, and potentially cure, dozens of chronic diseases with “high-tech healing.” 341 more words


Repair? Replace? Upgrade? The spare body part market is heating up.

Nature writer Heidi Ledford got all het up last week about a 3D printing conference featuring customised body parts. They had ears, dissolving splints, bones, a skull implant, a living kidney, and the now-obligatory 3D printed… 716 more words
