Innovating alternative for cargo delivery
Is this the contact lens to augment troops’ visual capabilities in the field?
The Optics Department at IMT Atlantique is headed by Professor Jean-Louis de Bougrenet de la Tocnaye and the Flexible Electronics Department at the Centre Microélectronique de Provence Georges Charpak (Mines Saint Etienne) is headed by Professor Thierry Djenizian. The two departments are currently working together to design an oculometer embedded in a scleral contact lens.…
Drones for organ transport
Drones could get donor organs to recipients more quickly than traditional transport methods, increasing the likelihood that the organs will still be “viable” by the time they reach their destination. The test: On April 19 a drone delivered a donor kidney to surgeons at the University of Maryland Medical Center, ferrying it from a hospital…
