EU scientists develop  prosthesis

from Engadget by Joseph L. Flatley


We’ve seen plenty of developments in neurology and robotics over the years, including the Smart Hand prosthesis and targeted muscle reinnervation,
and now researchers at the Bio-Medical Campus University of Rome have
announced LifeHand. Connected via electrodes to an amputee named
Pierpaolo Petruzziello, the device is able to perform complex movements
and is controlled by thought alone. "It’s a matter of mind, of
concentration," said Petruzziello. "When you think of it as your hand
and forearm, it all becomes easier." The five year project, funded to
the tune of about $3 million by the European Union, is just the
beginning — they still have to figure out how to make the implants
permanent. Get a closer look below.

Life-sized Tachikoma loose on the streets of Tokyo (update: video!)

da Engadget di Joseph L. Flatley

You know, we see a lot of kick-ass vehicles ‘round Engadget HQ, so it’s easy to grow a little jaded. Who can forget that Batman Tumbler we saw tearing up the asphalt last summer? Or the Halo Warthog
— complete with UN Space Command BDUs? Sure, either of those would
make for a fun-filled weekend (or a lifetime of weekends), but what
about something a little more suited to urban environs? Next time
you’re in Tokyo, make sure you look up a gentleman named San Kougei,
who put together a joystick-piloted replica Tachikoma (of Ghost In The Shell
fame). Who knows? Maybe he’ll even let you take it for a spin. We’re
looking forward to seeing some YouTube video of this bad boy, but in
the meantime we present you with one more pic (after the break).

Update: Video found… from 2006. Hey, it’s new to (most of) you!

NASA’s new e-nose can detect scent of cancerous brain cells

da Engadget di Ross Miller

NASA’s recently developed electronic nose,
intended for air quality monitoring on Space Shuttle Endeavour and
later the International Space Station, has a rather fortunate and
unintended secondary role. In addition to being able to detect
contaminants within about one to 10,000 parts per million, scientists
have discovered it can also sniff out the difference in odor between
normal and cancerous brain cells — not a new use
for e-noses, but certainly one that helps to advance the field. Groups
such the as Brain Mapping Foundation, City of Hope Cancer Center, and
Jet Propulsion Laboratory have been testing the technology and hope it
one day leads to a new understanding of cancer development. We’d also
wager it can accurately detect what cologne or perfume you’re wearing,
another unintended side effect and probably not as fun of a party trick
as it seems.

Non più tardi di un anno fa, Futuroprossimo vi ha parlato della Cyberdyne e del suo progetto di costruire esoscheletri che potenziano le prestazioni umane:
Gli HAL, questo il loro nome, sono provvisti di sensori che si legano
ai nostri movimenti e li potenziano dalle 2 alle 10 volte, per una
durata (dipendente dalla batteria) fino a 2 ore e mezza.

Inizialmente previsti per il noleggio, gli HAL ora sono in vendita
per un prezzo che si aggira intorno ai 4000 euro: l’unico appunto è
sulla produzione, che per gli inizi sarà di 400 pezzi per anno, non
sarà facile averne uno a breve.

HAL
sarà disponibile inizialmente in Giappone, poi in Europa, e per la
vendità costituirà titolo di preferenza la disabilità. Una volta tanto.

Honda rilancia il sistema per la camminata assistita

Dai laboratori di ricerca Honda arriva un dispositivo robotico per la camminata assistita, adatto a pazienti con malattie neurologiche o con difficoltà motorie.

A differenza di precedenti modelli,
il robot targato Honda non fornisce solo l’energia necessaria a
camminare, ma è in grado di sopportare il peso del paziente e può
quindi “trasportarlo” agilmente su per una scala.

Il controllo del robot avviene in modo naturale: il passo viene regolato in base alle informazioni provenienti da sensori posizionati nelle apposite scarpe.

Il
dispositivo per la camminata assistita pesa 6,5kg (incluse batterie e
scarpe), monta due motori alimentati da batterie agli ioni di litio ed
è capace di operare per circa due ore ininterrottamente.
