Wireless sensors that stick to the skin

Wireless sensors that stick to the skin

Stanford engineers have developed experimental stickers that pick up physiological signals emanating from the skin, then wirelessly beam these health readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing. It's all part of a system called BodyNet.

Towards smart packaging that detects the presence of salmonella

Towards smart packaging that detects the presence of salmonella

When food is recalled due to contamination from bacteria such as salmonella, one may wonder how a tainted product ended up on store shelves. New technology being developed could give retailers and regulators an earlier warning on dangers in food, improving public health and giving consumers peace of mind.

SAFI-Tech's No-Heat SAC305 Receives Investment

SAFI-Tech's No-Heat SAC305 Receives Investment

The electronics manufacturing world has long been searching for a low-heat or no-heat solder solution. Advanced electronics designs with lightweight flexible substrates or sensitive miniaturized components require a dramatic reduction in processing heat while still meeting high operating temperature requirements.
