SynDaver Introduces Engineering Kit that Allows STEM Students to Build Function Human Mannequin with 3D Printer

SynDaver, an advanced biotechnology company that specializes in in developing synthetic animal and human stimulators for medical testing as well as training, is all set to debut its advanced engineering kit for STEM students during the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. The engineering kit includes electronics, pneumatics, hydraulics and associated templates, enabling students in STEM education

social influence

In a new study, a research team found evidence that indicates children are likely to be susceptible to social influence when they reach the age 12. Findings of the study, which involved 155 children between the ages of 6 and 14 (some of whom were acoustic), were detailed in a paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It is understood that humans are generally vulnerable to social

Waterproof Skin Patch

A team of international researchers has recently created a skin patch that enables monitoring an individual’s biometrics and also functions underwater. Working mechanism and uses of the new patch have been described in a research paper published in the journal Science Advances. The patch has small holes on its underside to pull in sweat, easily attaches to the skin, and continuously takes small sweat samples throughout the day. After absorbing,

Hierarchical Porous Titanium Nitride

A team of researchers at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has recently created high-rate, ultra-stable lithium-sulfur batteries (LSBs) by employing hierarchically porous titanium nitride (h-TiN) as a host material for sulfur. It achieved high-rate performance and excellent cycle stability for LSBs. The control of massive amounts of energy is needed for use in smart grid systems and electric vehicles. To that end, there had been an increasing

Electric Vehicle

China’s electric vehicle maker NIO Inc., among rivals to Elon Musk’s Tesla, launched a convertible bond worth $650 million on Wednesday, nearly four months after it listed in New York, according to Reuters’ news. The company’s move to raise capital through an equity-link bond is equivalent to that of iQiyi, China’s Netflix-like video streaming platform which sold a convertible bond valued $750 million in November last year. Reuters reported that
