Data on stolen mobile can be destroyed remotely

Data on stolen mobile can be destroyed remotely

Scientists have developed a tiny embedded system that could remotely destroy the memory of stolen or hacked electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops and pen drives to prevent data theft1. “This system could be integrated with state-of-the-art high-performance silicon chips, making it potentially useful for protecting data in various fields such as intelligence, nationalRead more about Data on stolen mobile can be destroyed remotely[…]

Liquid biopsy to hunt down deadly tumours

Liquid biopsy to hunt down deadly tumours

Researchers have developed a system that can detect, capture and remove tumour cells circulating in the peripheral bloodstream, making it potentially useful for diagnosing and treating cancers. Primary tumours shed cells which circulate in the bloodstream, eventually forming masses in organs, a process known as metastasis. Circulating tumour cells are promising cancer biomarkers. Using magneticRead more about Liquid biopsy to hunt down deadly tumours[…]

Flexible sensors to track vital signs of the human body

Flexible sensors to track vital signs of the human body

Vertically stacked three-dimensional sensors exhibit low resistance, and consume less power and space1. The sensors are implantable and potentially useful for monitoring activities of brain cells, heart rates and body temperature. Current techniques stack sensors horizontally with a lot of wiring. Besides taking up space, they generate noise that attenuates desired signals. Researchers from KingRead more about Flexible sensors to track vital signs of the human body[…]
