Wearable Sensor Helps Map Environment
2012-09-25 21:22:56

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online MIT researchers have developed a prototype sensor array that can be worn on the chest to automatically map out an environment surrounding the wearer. The wearable sensor system can create a digital map of the environment that the person who is using it is moving in. During experiments, students wore the sensor system while wandering halls at MIT. The sensors wirelessly relayed data back to a laptop in a conference room, and...

Battery-powered devices could soon be a thing of the past thanks to a group of UK researchers who have created a novel energy harvester to power some of the latest wearable gadgets. By strapping the energy harvester to the knee joint, a user could power body-monitoring devices such as heart rate monitors, pedometers and accelerometers by simply walking and not have the worry of running out of power and replacing batteries. Soldiers may find this device particularly useful as they often...

Tronics invests in a joint venture in China to strengthen its commercial activities in the region and provide local support to its customers. Grenoble, France (PRWEB) May 21, 2012 Almost ten years back, Tronics identified China as a potential high growth opportunity for MEMS. At that time, the Chinese MEMS market was in its infancy and there were few customers with good technical competencies in MEMS technologies. Meanwhile the Chinese MEMS community has grown fast and has developed...

Active Sports Video Games Not Increasing Exercise In Children
2012-02-27 09:09:40

A new study, published in Pediatrics, calls into question the health benefits of so-called active video games, in which players use their bodies to simulate sports or dancing, reports Jennifer Warner for WebMD. Previous laboratory studies showed initial promise in allowing children to increase physical activity in children with sports and motion-oriented video games, but researchers say the new study offers no reason to believe that children actually increase their physical activity more...
