[Our lab uses] a desktop inkjet printer, but instead of using ink, we’re using cells. — Anthony Atala Synopsis Surgeon Anthony Atala demonstrates an early-stage experiment that could someday solve the organ-donor problem: a 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney. Using similar technology, Dr. Atala's young patient Luke Massella received an engineered bladder 10 years ago; we meet him onstage. Talk recorded 3 March 2011.

Gloves turn gestures into speech: Ukrainian students built a set of electronic gloves to translate movement from signing into signals that a computer converts into speech. Cool!

Smart Gloves Turn Sign Language Gestures Into Vocalized Speech --- A team of Ukrainian of students has done just that in order to translate sign language into vocalized speech via a smartphone. Team QuadSquad came in first place for their glove prototype in the Software Design Competition of the 2012 Microsoft Imagine Cup,
Ukrainian Students Develop Gloves That Translate Sign Language Into Speech. Using gloves fitted with flex sensors, touch sensors, gyroscopes and accelerometers (as well as some solar cells to increase battery life) the team has built a system that can translate sign language into text and then into spoken words using a text-to-speech engine. The whole system then connects to a smartphone over Bluetooth. The idea came from interacting with hearing-impaired athletes at the groups’ school.

Twisting Light Signals into a Vortex, Researchers Create Fastest Wireless Connection Ever: Twisting radio waves into a threaded vortex, researchers have beamed data through the air at 2.5 terabits per second, creating what has to be the fastest wireless network ever created. The technique used to create this effect has no real theoretical ceiling. In theory an infinite number of these vortex beams could be threaded together to add infinite capacity to conventional transmission protocols.

This car runs on the ultimate emissions-free fuel: air. In 2007, Mumbai, India-based Tata Motors signed a licensing deal with Motor Development International, a French design firm. The idea was to build a car that could run on compressed air. Now Tata says it has tested two cars with the engines. The next step is setting up the manufacturing plants to actually build them. -Discovery News

The Tata AirPod is a city car running on compressed air (as well as a battery-powered electric motor). The ease of converting air into an energy source using simple compressors means charging stations can be placed anywhere, and they require no provisioning — no trucks delivering gas, ethanol, or hydrogen — and they produce no emissions, just discharge of the air. The AirPod can run 125mi (200k) at a top speed between 28 to 43mph (45 to 70kph).

Thanks for eye sight, even though mine is impaired
A retinal implant - or bionic eye - which is powered by light has been invented by scientists at Stanford University in California. Implants currently used in patients need to be powered by a battery. The new device, described in the journal Nature Photonics, uses a special pair of glasses to beam near infrared light into the eye. This powers the implant and sends the information which could help a patient see.
Wonderful news! Light-powered bionic eye invented to help restore sight
Cool technology: Two blind men have their vision partially restored after surgery to fit pioneering eye implants.
