Tech Tuesday

Tab clearing. Had these building up since the last time I did one and now I have a bunch.

http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/quadriplegic-man-uses-thoughts-move-his-limb Bypassing damage to get the brain to control parts it's lost connection with. Having that capability also means that a similar capability with prosthetics isn't far behind.

http://www.iflscience.com/technology/researchers-develop-muscle-powered-biorobots biorobots. We'll see where this goes, it's mostly just interesting. Too tired to ramble about applications and stuff.

http://sploid.gizmodo.com/scientist-creates-new-flu-virus-that-can-kill-all-of-hu-1599174385 It ignores the human immune system, from the sounds of it. Made for study, because science.

http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/remote-controlled-contraceptive-implant-lasts-16-years Birth control with a remote control on/off. Handy, if it works.

http://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/dna-scissors-can-perform-surgery-your-genes Genemods. The potential uses and abuses are both significant.

http://gizmodo.com/googles-smart-contact-lenses-are-going-to-become-a-real-1605173326 Not the video lenses that I predict will be the real proto-cyberbrain interface, but health monitoring contacts are probably more useful for people that need them.

http://www.iflscience.com/technology/3dtouch-works-3-dimensions-could-replace-computer-mouse Touch seems to be a big thing interfaces are moving towards. 3D touch will be interesting.
