An international team of researchers has used 3D-printing technology to produce individually-tailored model organs. These dummy organs could one day improve your chances of surviving surgery, by allowing doctors to plan and practice a lifesaving procedure on a realistic replica before putting you to the scalpel.
Back in July we reported on the Amabrush, a motorized mouthpiece that reportedly cleaned all your teeth in just 10 seconds. For those who felt that was still way too much time to be wasting cleaning your teeth we introduce the Unico, a smartbrush mouthpiece that is claimed to brush your teeth in just three seconds.
Samsung is set to reveal its Galaxy S9 handsets in January at the CES show, it has been claimed.

Bell Helicopter isn’t known for indulging in concept aircraft, but it’s dipped its toes in the concept waters for the first time with the FCX-001. Unveiled at Heli-Expo 2017 in Dallas, Texas, the rotorcraft concept features an airframe crafted from sustainable materials, a hybrid power system, an artificial intelligence co-pilot, and morphing rotor blades that change to suit different flight conditions.
Keeping safe and comfortable in arctic conditions is a precarious balancing act between protecting one’s self against the cold without overheating. This is particularly true of a soldier’s hands and feet while working in the cold, so scientists from Stanford University and the US Army Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center are working on energized fabrics that heat up when powered, yet wick away sweat and dry easily.
There’s no doubt that nostalgia sells, and both the iconic Volkswagen Kombi and timeless Back to the Future movies have it in spades.
In a step towards creating a new class of electronics that look and feel like soft, natural organisms, mechanical engineers at Carnegie Mellon University are developing a fluidic transistor out of a metal alloy of indium and gallium that is liquid at room temperature. From biocompatible disease monitors to shape-shifting robots, the potential applications for such squishy computers are intriguing.
