To those who have weak eyesight, the OrCam MyEye 2 would be a game changer. Often mentioned  as “talking glasses,”, the artificial intelligence device can attach to the frame of any glasses and can read text, verify currency, identify faces or read information from bar codes aloud. Putting all these 
power and features into such a small gadget is like “fitting an elephant into a small closet,” says the inventor of the technology. Amnon Shashua, 

OrCam MyEye 2 is also very helpful for those who are having reading difficulties like dyslexia. A latest version is scheduled to come out next year. That upgrade will allow its users to get even more specific. For example telling the machine to read only the headlines of a newspaper, or only the appetizer section of a menu. The OrCam MyEye 2 is currently available in more than 48 countries and it has also been used in Israeli elections, to help blind and visually impaired citizens cast their ballots.

There are tons of fitness bands that measure your heart rate and that sounds nothing new now. But, almost every research shows the variation in the accuracy of those devices. Especially when you depend on them to count your calories. If you are using them just for normal use and show-off that's ok but for professionals, accuracy is everything.

The new T-shirt created by smart materials company KYMIRA correctly measures one's heartbeats and stores them by uploading onto the cloud via Bluetooth. It uses a single lead ECG printed onto the fabric. After the data is uploaded to the cloud, the algorithms will process the heartbeats to correctly detect the disturbances or irregular heartbeats like arrhythmia heartbeats, which could be life saving.

Tim Brownstone, founder and CEO of KYMIRA says that this t-shirt is not just for sportspeople or for people from specific industry. This t-shirt is useful to everyone who concerns about their health and can also come as handy in clinical applications.

Yes. you read that right. A team of UK scientists have developed a "smart needle" that can speed up the process of cancer detection and diagnosis time.
Scientists believe that this needle can particularly be helpful in diagnosing lymphoma, which will also help in reducing anxiety of the patients as they wait for their test results. Currently, the people who test for lymphoma have to wait a long time to get the results as their are number of steps involved.
This smart needle uses Raman spectroscopy technique to shine a low power laser inside the part of the body currently being inspected. It has the potential to spot concerns within seconds.
The scientist from the University of Exeter have already shared their opinion about the smart needle.
They said that the Raman smart needle is able to measure and count molecular changes regarding the diseases in cells and tissues at the end of the smart needle. This needle is able to assess if the person's health

Car Batteries that charge in 10 Minutes!

Quick-charging of electric vehicles is seen as a key to their rise, so people can stop at a service station and charge their car completely in the time it takes to get a coffee or use the toilet, which makes it as a conventional break. But, researchers at Penn State University in the US say that quick charging of lithium ion batteries can degrade the batteries. This is due to the flow of lithium particles also called as ions from one electrode to another for charging the unit and holding the energy ready for use does not happen that easily with quick charging at lower temperatures.

However, they now have discovered that if the batteries could heat to 60°C for just 10 minutes, and then quickly cool again to ambient temperatures, lithium spikes would not form and heat damage would be avoided. They have come up with a self-heating battery design, using a thin foil that creates an electical circuit which heats in less than 30seconds to warm the inside of the battery. The fast cooling that is required after the battery is charged, can be done using the cooling system designed into the car.

As published in the journal Joule, their study showed they could fully charge an electrical vehicle in 10 minutes
