Gut Check by e-Pill

Electronic Capsule Potentially Big Diagnostic and Dietary Tech RMIT University's e-Capsule New e-Pill In Australia, RMIT University scientists have developed an ingestible electronic capsule.  It provides a potentially powerful diagnostic technique and unique information on the effects of diet and medical supplements. The pill is loaded with highly advanced sensors that monitor and measure. Individualized, Precision Diets The e-capsule could help to develop individualized, precision diets.  It precisely monitors what's present in the stomach and intestinal track, including oxygen, CO², hydrogen and microbes.  According to the RMIT scientists, it safely and accurately measures the effects of diet - what's working and what isn't.  The e-pill also has the potential of working as a powerful diagnostic tool. 24/7 Info On Cell Phone The e-capsule monitors 24/7.  It sends the data real-time to a monitor that displays on a cell phone. Every 5 minutes it also displa

Laser Breakthrough

Lasers on Active Military Duty Source:  Stock Image of Military Jets Laser Aircraft Repairs Engineers at RMIT University in Australia are developing laser technology to manufacture and repair steel and titanium parts for defense aircraft. The process sends metal powder into a laser beam, scans the powder across the surface and adds new material in a precise, web-like formation. It's basically a high tech welding process that makes or rebuilds metal parts layer by layer. The bonded metal has similar properties to the original metal and in some cases superior. Laser Tech Being Tested The process is being tested on defense aircraft in Australia.  The value could be two-fold: saving time and money.  Onsite repairs on military aircraft would save time as opposed to waiting for days for parts to be delivered from a warehouse.  Also it saves money as the part is fixed instead of being replaced. The RMIT researchers say that by enabling on-site production and repair of parts,
