This video now represents an exceptional training tool, to the extent that students and surgeons can for the very first time visualize a surgery and live it as if they were the surgeon....

Many modern technologies wouldn't be possible without recent advances in semiconductor materials—but even the tiniest, fastest, most advanced semiconductors have their limits. S.-K. Hwang et al. present a proof-of-principle for a new class of electronics that are designed to degrade and completely disappear over a prescribed period of time. Such devices could be used not only for biomedical and environmental monitoring but also as a strategy for reducing electronic waste....

Inocencio travels to Seattle to watch a needle-injection process and to witness what one pioneer can do with a wave of his hand....
