One of the biggest breakthroughs in the field of prosthetics has been made recently.The researchers could develop artificial limbs which are controlled by the brain user. Researchers are working to increase the flexibility of their prostheses.Their latest invention works in the following way: the user must consider the motion, after which the brain signals detected by sensors and transmitted to the prosthetic limb. it is impossible not to note that most amputees have lost control over the nerves. However, for restoring this control, Mr. Sullivan can use the new prosthesis. At present, the researchers at Northwestern University in the U.S.are studying different models of the brain to find out whether they can be used artificial limbs or not, according to Tech2.0.
Have you ever thought about charging the battery by using a simple spring force?EnomHwaang and Ming Ho Kahn developed a new device for recharging batteries anywhere and at any time, regardless of the electrical network. Device uses a purelymechanical energy and has high efficiency. The recharging batteries is very simple. It is just creating a device like a clock and insert the battery into the slot. The operation is similar to the old clockwork toys. Device installed inside the spring which is gradually unwound, driving the shaft of the generator and producing a current. Spring and rechargeable batteries are connected to each other via the internal circuitry.
