Performance enhancing sensor ready for commercialisation
A wearable device being developed by the University of Strathclyde will provide real-time data analysis of fluid loss during exercise to enhance the performance of fitness enthusiasts and elite athletes.
The rise of wearable health tech could mean the end of the sickie
Now that the sun is shining and the temperature is rising, it's officially sickie season: go to work, or get struck down with "flu", a "24-hour virus", or that faithful stand-by, the dodgy prawn takeaway.
Wireless devices go battery-free with new communication technique
(Phys.org) —We might be one step closer to an Internet-of-things reality. University of Washington engineers have created a new wireless communication system that allows devices to interact with each other ...
Research shows smartphone sensors leave trackable fingerprints
Fingerprints—those swirling residues left on keyboards and doorknobs—are mostly invisible. They can affirm your onetime presence, but they cannot be used to track your day-to-day activities.

Wearable sensors gather lots of data—now to make it useful
It's not just about how many steps you've taken or how many calories you've burned in a day. Wearable fitness trackers and health monitors are becoming more commonplace and diverse, but just what do you do ...
Trapping a rainbow: Researchers slow broadband light waves with nanoplasmonic structures
A team of electrical engineers and chemists at Lehigh University have experimentally verified the "rainbow" trapping effect, demonstrating that plasmonic structures can slow down light waves over a broad range of wavelengths.
