Tim Cook admits that iPhones use Sony camera sensors

Posted by in categories: electronics, mobile phones

It’s a rare confirmation of the components that go into the iPhone. ‘We’ve been partnering with Sony for over a decade,’ Cook said.

Tim Cook has tweeted an admission that Apple uses Sony image sensors in its iPhones as part of the CEO’s supplier tour of Japan. “We’ve been partnering with Sony for over a decade to create the world’s leading camera sensors for iPhone,” Cook tweeted, and thanked Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida for showing him around the Kumamoto facility. A photo shows Cook being shown his company’s own smartphone, which is objectively very funny.

The partnership looks set to continue.

Scientists Reveal 3 Keys to Keeping Your Brain Healthy

Posted by in categories: electronics, neuroscience

No surprises, but confirmation that what we think we should do actually does make a difference. Your brain is really rather amazing. Around 100 billion nerve cells collaborate to keep you nimble and quick-thinking. However, like with the rest of the body, as you age your brain may not be nearly as sharp. You may need to write things down, miss appointments, or have trouble watching TV without straining to understand the dialogue or action.

New biosensor allows you to diagnose and kill oral cancer quickly before it’s too late

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, electronics

Detect and kill oral cancer quickly; otherwise, it’d be too late.

In January 2022, a report from the American Cancer Society predicted 54,000 new oral cancer cases in the US. The same report also suggested 11,230 deaths.

This is why early diagnosis is critical for patients suffering from oral cancer. A team of researchers realized this and developed a point-of-care bio-sensor that could allow easy, quick, and accurate detection of oral cancer in humans. Commons.

The Illustrated Man: How LED Tattoos Could Make Your Skin a Screen

Posted by in categories: computing, electronics

Year 2009 This is awesome 👌 👏

The title character of Ray Bradbury’s book The Illustrated Man is covered with moving, shifting tattoos. If you look at them, they will tell you a story.

New LED tattoos from the University of Pennsylvania could make the Illustrated Man real (minus the creepy stories, of course). Researchers there are developing silicon-and-silk implantable devices which sit under the skin like a tattoo. Already implanted into mice, these tattoos could carry LEDs, turning your skin into a screen.

This tattoo-like sensor measures blood glucose levels non-invasively

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, electronics

Diabetes tracking can be a scary and tedious task, but University of California at San Diego researchers have developed a needless glucose monitor tattoo sensor that measures insulin levels through sweat on the skin.

There are approximately 30.3 million people living with diabetes in the U.S., according to the American Diabetes Association. Monitoring blood sugar levels is an important part of managing their condition. For people like Angela Valdez, that daily task is avoided because of the traditional pricking of the finger.

“I don’t handle monitoring my diabetes as I should,” said Valdez in a press release. “I have the diet down a lot better now and I take my medication as I should, but the finger pricking is a struggle for me. I only test if I feel bad. If I don’t feel my blood sugar level is high, and I’m taking the pill every day, I think I’m alright. Which is really bad thinking, but the pin prick is terrifying.”

What’s more, it can simultaneously capture information about the orientation, or “polarization,” of the waves in real-time, which existing devices cannot.

This information can be used to characterize materials that have asymmetrical molecules or to determine the surface topography of materials.

Algae-filled panels could generate oxygen and electricity while absorbing CO2

Posted by in categories: electronics, sustainability

Greenfluidics, a Mexico-based startup, promises newer, greener bio panels that can provide fresh oxygen and considerably bring down your power consumption while also delivering biomass-based fuel to you, New Atlas has reported.

With the world trying to reduce carbon emissions, algae have taken quite the center stage in capturing the carbon dioxide being released. From using algal blooms as large carbon capture sites to even powering electronic devices using algae, researchers are trying to use these green organisms everywhere.

Sensors Deep Under Antarctic Ice Located a Source of ‘Ghost Particles’ from Space

Posted by in categories: electronics, particle physics

Scientists used the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a special telescope that extends for more than a mile under the Antarctic ice at the South Pole, to capture roughly 80 astrophysical neutrinos from a galaxy known as NGC 1,068, or Messier 77, which has an extremely active galactic core. The finding suggests that these active galaxies provide “a substantial contribution” to the abundance of astrophysical neutrinos, and therefore cosmic rays, that permeate through the universe, according to a study published on Thursday in Science.

“This is a very exciting result because for the first time, we actually understand that astrophysical neutrinos can be related to this very special type of galaxy,” said Theo Glauch, an experimental physicist at the Technical University of Munich and a co-author of the new study, in a call with Motherboard. “We physicists call them active galaxies because they’re very different from, for example, our Milky Way.”

Unlike our own galaxy, which is currently dormant, NGC 1,068 contains “an extremely bright environment which we can only study in neutrinos,” Glauch added. “Neutrinos are the only particles that can directly escape from the processes that drive this extremely high luminosity in the core of those galaxies.”
