PillCam – Medical Camera In A Pill

According to ExtremeTech –

Here’s how it works. There are three versions of the device: the PillCam ESO, for the esophagus, the PillCam SB for the stomach, and the PillCam Colon for the lower GI tract. All versions of the PillCam contain a little chemical battery that’ll give it eight to ten hours of recording time, plus a light source and two tiny CCD cameras. A patient who’s about to use it will strap on a belt containing a receiver and an SD card or equivalent storage medium. Then they swallow the tiny pill. The camera proceeds through the GI tract, takes between 2,600 and 57,000 pictures while it’s on its way through, and “produces no pain or even sensation as it moves through the colon” over a period of a few hours.

Spray Turns Nearly Any Surface Into A Touch Surface

TheVerge reported –

The world is full of touchscreens these days, but most of them are on flat, smooth surfaces made of glass. Now researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have come up with a way to add touch controls to any object, no matter what shape or material it is. The system is called Electrick, and it uses a software algorithm to read the press of your finger by measuring changes in the flow of electricity across a conductive surface.

A Server That Booted In 1993 Is Still Running

According to Computerworld –

In 1993, President Bill Clinton was in the first year of his presidency, Windows NT 3.1 and Jurassic Park were both released, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was signed, and Phil Hogan, an IT application architect, booted up a brand-new Stratus Technologies fault tolerant server. A lot has changed in 24 years, but one thing hasn’t: The Stratus server is still in operation and Hogan — who works at steel products maker Great Lakes Works EGL in Dearborn Mich. — continues to keep it that way.

According to The Verge –

A developer named Brian Kane has hacked his Alexa to speak through the avatar of a wall-mounted Big Mouth Billy Bass. It’s not clear exactly how he did it, but it’s probably related to the Alexa API — opened in April just after the release of the Dot — which allows developers to embed the smart assistant in third-party hardware.

Craving Gigabit Internet? Nokia Demonstrates Terabit Connection

ZDNet reports –

Researchers will this week demonstrate a newly-refined data-transmission technique that can deliver one terabit per second (Tbps) over optical fiber. Nokia Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom T-Labs, and the Technical University of Munich will be showing off how a technique called Probabilistic Constellation Shaping, or PCS, can deliver blistering 1Tbps speeds over a fiber connection. The work provides more momentum behind the push to bring terabit networks to reality. It follows another optical breakthrough earlier this year by researchers at University College London, who achieved speeds of 1.25Tbps. To put that in perspective, they noted it was fast enough to download an entire Games of Thrones series in high definition within one second.
