Electronic Tattoos For Monitoring Brain And Muscle Activity

John A. Rogers , who is a professor of materials science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has developed a flexible electronic device known as electronic tattoo that make it feasible for the doctors to monitor the heart, brain, and muscle activity of the patient. This new ultra-thin electronics resembled to a tattoo which can stick to skin for sometime and during this time doctor can diagnose and monitor the health condition of the patient.

Actually, Rogers was trying to make a flexible device that can replicate the bulky electrocardiograms and some other monitoring machines and for this purpose he did some research. He made a device that is composed of incredibly thin silicon which can be deformed without breaking.
This electronic tattoo has electrodes which help the doctors in measuring the electric signals produced by muscles and brain.

Introducing Broadband in a Box – Three Web Cube

This week we’ve introduced a brand new product to our broadband range. It’s the first time it’s been launched in the UK, and it’s designed for the significant chunk of the population, especially renters and students, that have told us they want Wi-Fi at home, just without the phone line and the lengthy contract.

So we’ve designed Web Cube, and it’s something that we’re really excited about.

The Web Cube’s Wi-Fi signal is powered by our 3G network, so it comes ready-to-go with a mobile broadband SIM card. It’s really easy to set up – just plug it in, turn it on and connect using the name and password supplied in the box. You don’t need a phone line to get going, as long as it’s plugged into the mains and your SIM is inserted, our network will do the rest.

The Web Cube is HSPA+ enabled to the 21.1Mbps technical standard, to deliver typical download speeds of 2-5Mbps, comparable to those of entry-level fixed-line broadband solutions, with the potential to reach a maximum download speed in excess of 10Mbps. Up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices can be connected at any one time, including smartphones, laptops and tablets, and it has a range of up to 30 metres.
