Researchers in Singapore and the UK have developed a new blood pressure monitoring device that they claim is easier to use, more comfortable to wear, and more accurate than traditional methods. Scientists at the University of Leicester and HealthSTATS International, a medical devices company located in the Southeast Asian country, developed the measurement device, which has been dubbed the CASPal and is similar to a wristwatch. The CASPal uses a sensor to record central aortic systolic...

Leatherback turtles are remarkably versatile divers. Routinely diving to depths of several hundred meters, leatherbacks are occasionally known to plunge as deep as 1250m. The animals probably plumb the depths to avoid predators, search for prey and avoid heat in the tropics. However it wasn't clear how these mammoth reptiles regulate their buoyancy as they plunge down. Sabrina Fossette from Swansea University explains that no one knew how the turtles descended so far: do they swim down or...

A wetsuit, worn by divers, windsurfers, and others engaged in water sports, is a garment, made of foamed neoprene that provides thermal insulation, abrasion resistance, and buoyancy. The suit provides insulation through bubbles of gas enclosed within the material which reduces its ability to conduct heat. These bubbles also provide buoyancy in water. Contrary to popular belief the layer of warm water trapped between the suit and the skin provides very little thermal insulation. Wetsuits...

A barometer is an instrument that measures atmospheric pressure. The barometer measures pressure exerted by the atmosphere using water, air, or mercury. Through measuring the pressure one can forecast short term weather changes. Evangelista Torricelli is credited with the invention of the barometer in 1643. However, Gasparo Berti unintentionally built a water barometer around the same time. Rene Descartes was also noted as describing an experiment to determine air pressure but there is no...
