Swiss researchers at EPFL are working hard on telepresence robots that may someday help disabled patients control untethered robots, enabling them to travel if they’re unable to on their own. The robot itself isn’t terribly complicated, but there are some great ideas here, and it’ll be exciting to watch these kinds of projects unfold.
A team of researchers from UCLA recently presented their work at a conference for the American Physics Society. It’s an ultra-realistic computer model of a human leg that can be programmed to show various types of bleeding from gunshot and shrapnel wounds. It’s a great way to teach both doctors and combat medics how they could potentially respond to serious injuries before they have to treat living patients in the field.
Our featured story today is from artist Kelli Anderson. You might know her previous work, a paper record player, and this time, she’s crafted a pinhole camera inside a pop-up book, appropriately titled “This Camera Is a Book.” It takes small, light-sensitive film and requires some dark room developing, but it’s a fun little project and she’s got instructions on her website if you want to try your hand at building one (or you can just buy a complete book on her site).
