Robotic thread is designed to slip through the brain's blood vessels

[ad_1] MIT engineers develop magnetically steerable robotic thread (in black), small enough to work through narrow spaces, such as the vasculature of the human brain. Researchers envision the technology may be used in the future to clear blockages in patients with stroke and aneurysms.

Building computers the way our brains work

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain We are approaching the limit for how much more microprocessors can be developed. Gunnar Tufte proposes building computers in a completely new way, inspired by the human brain and nanotechnology. Gunnar Tufte is a professor of computer technology, but his research has taken him in some surprising directions. He’s now […]
