A Ban on Human/Animal Hybrids Has Been Lifted

The National Institute of Health recently lifted a moratorium on the creation of human/animal hybrids, which are known as chimeras. While meddling human and animal DNA could have the capacity to help with things like organ transplants and disease research, many people seem to be taking issue with the nebulous ethics surrounding chimera creation.

Need a Hand? This Prosthetic Limb Can Move on Its Own.

Newcastle University researchers have developed a prosthetic limb that performs certain actions on its own. All the wearer has to do is look at an object, and the hand does the rest. Using its onboard camera to evaluate the shape, size, and distance, the hand performs the appropriate action – like picking up a coffee cup. This makes complex actions much easier for prosthetic wearers, who otherwise have to perform complex muscle actions to manipulate their limbs.

A New Vaccine Could Bring a Permanent End to Ebola

A new Ebola vaccine is on the horizon. Researchers at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) recently took a sample of 349 antibodies from an Ebola survivor and were able to isolate 2 of these that have been shown to effectively neutralize the deadly virus. This incredible breakthrough will likely lead to a highly effective vaccine that could be widely accessible in the near future.

This Supersensor Knows More About Your House Than You Do

This complex sensor can monitor pretty much all of the activity in your home, by sensing temperature fluctuation, electricity use, sounds, movement, and duration of events. It’s a foundation on which to build truly “Smart” homes, where activities are tracked, remote-controlled, and automated as the user sees fit. For now, it’s a great way to monitor the events in a busy home, workshop, or business. The SuperSensor secures all user data and doesn’t transmit it to the Cloud.
