A crazy-cool new printer could change the way we print human tissue

TwitterFacebook

Researchers at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences developed a new printing technique that allows them to manipulate the size of liquid drops with sound waves. That may not seem revolutionary at first glance, but it actually opens the door to a world where human tissue manufacturing is easier than ever. Here’s how it works. Read more…

Amazing new robot arm can catch and release deep sea creatures without harm

TwitterFacebook

Being able to snag the gelatinous or otherwise soft creatures of the deep ocean for study without harming them in the process provides researchers with a bit of challenge, a challenge Harvard’s Wyss Institute may have overcome.

The new RAD sampler (RAD stands for rotary-actuated device) is an origami-style robotic claw-like machine that can track down the deep-sea creatures and close around them to create something like a globe that fully encapsulates and then releases the creature without…

The death count for Hurricane Maria, currently at 64, may be off by thousands

TwitterFacebook

The Puerto Rican government has a list of 64 dead from Hurricane Maria, the tropical cyclone that hit the island in September 2017.  

This number, however, is “highly uncertain” notes the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). A new study published Tuesday in The New England Journal of Medicine puts that number at an estimated 4,645 — 70 times higher than the official estimate. 

“Our results indicate that the official death count of 64 is a substantial underestimate of…
