Painless Microneedle Tattoos That Can be Self-Administered

Painless Microneedle Tattoos That Can be Self-Administered

Instead of sitting in a tattoo chair for hours enduring painful punctures, imagine getting tattooed by a skin patch containing microscopic needles. Researchers have developed low-cost, painless, and bloodless tattoos that can be self-administered and have many applications, from medical alerts to tracking neutered animals to cosmetics.

3D Printing Soil with Embedded Seeds

3D Printing Soil with Embedded Seeds

Someday, maybe sooner than later, people building homes and offices may be able to 3D-print their roofs and walls using soil implanted with seeds thanks to new sustainability research. 3D-printing geometrically complex structures made of soil and seed is doable — introducing a key innovation in bio-based construction.

Spraying Robot Detects and Sprays Weeds in Crops

Spraying Robot Detects and Sprays Weeds in Crops

The new Solix Sprayer robot will provide autonomous and sustainable spot-spray applications on grower's fields. The spray robot is powered by four solar panels that control the drive system and the spray system while providing reports on crop populations, weed identification and densities, disease identification and thresholds, insect identification and thresholds, nutrient deficiency identification and densities, NDVI among other layers of maps for data analysis, and much more useful data to the grower virtually 24/7.

Wearable Lets Owners Know Exactly Where Their Dog Is

The pandemic gave people a lot more time with their dogs and cats, but return to the office has disrupted that connection. Pet cameras can help but are needed in every room and don't really tell owners what their furry friend has been up to without reviewing all footage. Now, researchers at the have created a new device that can put pet owners at ease.

Food Supply Challenge Addressed : 3D Printed Algae, Plants and Insects

Food Supply Challenge Addressed : 3D Printed Algae, Plants and Insects

As the global population continues to age and grow, the demand for protein-rich food is also expected to increase concurrently. This has also caused concerns on increasing greenhouse gases, land and water consumption associated with the conventional rearing of animals for food. In some parts of Africa, Asia and South America, people have already been turning to alternative sources of proteins from insects, plants and algae for sustainable, nutrient-rich food. However, the idea of consuming insects might be an uncomfortable concept to digest for the rest of the world.

VegSense Makes Sense for Forest Studies

Ecologists won't always need expensive and bulky equipment to measure vegetation in the wild. Scientists have discovered a modern heads-up display works pretty well. Researchers set up a Microsoft HoloLens as a mixed-reality sensor to feed VegSense, their application to measure understory vegetation, plant life that grows between the forest canopy and floor.
