Cyborg: Human organs could soon merge with computers to monitor health

A new ‘cyborg-like’ technology has been developed to safely merge electronic devices with human tissue to better monitor health and track tumours.

Scientists from the University of Delaware found a way to attach devices inside a human body by connecting it to tissue using a coating that is more energy efficient. 

Connecting electronics to tissue is a ‘huge challenge’, researchers say as materials used in technology like gold and silicon cause scarring that can interrupt data flow.  

For applications inserted into muscle or brain tissue, electrical signals need to flow for them to operate properly, but scars interrupt this activity, the team explained. 

The US researchers have developed new coatings for ‘human-machine’ devices that counteract issues from scarring caused by materials used in microelectronics.

Vouch4Vets, which helps connect veterans with white-collar jobs, is switching gears to help connect teachers with larger monitors meant to make their jobs easier come the start of the school year.

“Just imagine trying to manage 25 7-year-olds on a 13-inch screen,” wrote Executive Director David Brennan. “Impossible.”

Brennan initially put a call-out on his Facebook page and sought to recruit a web of donors throughout the region. As the idea gained traction, he got his nonprofit involved.

So far Vouch4Vets has collected more than a dozen monitors and computers, thanks in large part to donations from Alamo IT company Portable CIO. It’s a great

Vissles 15.6 inch portable touchscreen monitor

If the global pandemic has taught us anything (apart from how important it is to be nice to people and how often we should wash our hands), then it is just how different our work lives can turn, quite quickly.

Strangely then, this year has been a really good time to look at gadgets i.e. a video doorbell is no longer ‘just a video doorbell’, it’s a way of being able to answer the door safely when you’re in quarantine.

The Inspect-a-Gadget elves felt kind of the same way about the Vissles Monitor i.e. it was a way of taking a laptop on holiday and actually being able to create a dual-screen office experience… and for those of us that ‘never turn off’, that is a good thing.

The Vissles-M, 15.6-inch Portable Touchscreen Monitor is priced at $199.00 USD, which (at the time of writing) should translate to £152.03 in
