Bracelet works as personal safety alarm

Bracelet works as personal safety alarm
A bracelet with a unique ”panic grip” - featuring a built-in mobile phone and GPS system - has been developed by a former industrial design student at Lund University in Sweden. The device doesn’t require a base station in your home. The mobile bracelet can be programmed with up to seven phone numbers. When activated, the microphone and speakers are switched on, phone calls are made to the chosen phone numbers, and your GPS location is sent by text message to the recipients.

Devices help study how kids with cochlear implants learn

Devices help study how kids with cochlear implants learn
At the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center scientists are working on figuring out how young deaf kids adjust to their new cochlear implants and how they utilise the technology to study the world around them. While the devices liberate the hearing sense, children with cochlear implants are not as quick to learn new words as children with normal hearing. The research team has setup a special play room that has a bunch of cameras that capture what’s going on from many angles.

Jack interface lets smart ANC headsets run battery-free

Jack interface lets smart ANC headsets run battery-free
ams AG has announced the launch of a technology which enables noise-cancelling headsets with a four-pole 3.5mm jack to operate for the first time without a dedicated battery power supply. The new Accessory Communications Interface (ACI) invented by ams uses the microphone (MIC) wire – one of four wires in a standard 3.5mm audio cable – to carry power and bidirectional data with a rate of up to 16 Mbit/sec, as well as digital audio signals.

Providing a 'voice' to the voiceless

Providing a 'voice' to the voiceless
  For children who are deaf quite often communicating and interacting can be extremely difficult, however PhD Arts and Computational Technologies candidate Hadeel Ayoub has designed and created a glove that will translate sign language. By doing this, the words can be read off of a screen on the glove, or the glove can speak the words out loud.

'Lab-on-a-glove' can detect nerve-agents

'Lab-on-a-glove' can detect nerve-agents
There's a reason why farmers wear protective gear when applying organophosphate pesticides. The substances are very effective at getting rid of unwanted bugs, but they can also make people sick. Related compounds—organophosphate nerve agents—can be used as deadly weapons. Now researchers have developed a fast way to detect the presence of such compounds in the field using a disposable "lab-on-a-glove." The report on the glove appears in the journal ACS Sensors.
