Scientists Give Mice Infrared Night Vision

According to Extreme Tech –

Like us, mice can’t see in the infrared. Well, most mice can’t. There are a few rodents in a laboratory that can see infrared light after being enhanced with special nanoparticles. The team thinks a similar procedure could work on humans, giving you night vision without any bulky goggles. You just need to be willing to get nanoparticles injected into your eye

Interesting Fast 3D Printing Technique

From TechCrunch –

3D printing has changed the way people approach hardware design, but most printers share a basic limitation: they essentially build objects layer by layer, generally from the bottom up. This new system from UC Berkeley, however, builds them all at once, more or less, by projecting a video through a jar of light-sensitive resin.

No One Violates The Universal Law of Urination

According to SmithsonianMag.com –

The team filmed rats, dogs, goats, cows and elephants urinating and gathered footage from YouTube of others relieving themselves. Combining this with data on mass, bladder pressure and urethra size, they were able to create a mathematical model of urinary systems to show why mammals take the same time to empty their bladder, despite the difference in bladder size.

Electronic Bandages Could Speed Up Healing

According to Engadget –

Scientists have known for a long time that electricity can speed up healing for skin wounds, but the necessary power has usually tied patients to electrotherapy machines. In the future, though, it might not be much more complicated than treating a wound the old-fashioned way.

World’s Fastest Camera – 10 Trillion Frames Per Second

According to Phys.org –

. . . nothing beats a clear image, says INRS professor and ultrafast imaging specialist Jinyang Liang. He and his colleagues, led by Caltech’s Lihong Wang, have developed what they call T-CUP: the world’s fastest camera, capable of capturing 10 trillion (1013) frames per second (Fig. 1). This new camera literally makes it possible to freeze time to see phenomena—and even light—in extremely slow motion.
