Concept Animation of Nanorobotic Atherosclerosis Plaque Removal

August 15, 2013 9:47 am | by Nanobotmodels Videos Comments

Atherosclerosis is a major cardiovascular disease involving accumulations of lipids, white blood cells, and other materials on the inside of artery walls. Since the calcification found in the advanced stage of atherosclerosis dramatically enhances the mechanical properties of the plaque, restoring the original lumen of the artery remains a challenge.

Ambient Backscatter Eliminates Power Needs for Wireless Device Communication

August 13, 2013 5:18 pm | by University of Washington Videos Comments

University of Washington engineers have created a new wireless communication system that allows devices to interact with each other without relying on batteries or wires for power. The new communication technique, which the researchers call “ambient backscatter,” takes advantage of the TV and cellular transmissions that already surround us around the clock.
