10 Medically Approved Exoskeletons to Suit Up

Ekso Bionics

Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S. (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System) brings home the possibility of designing an intelligent exoskeleton. The latest advances in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, neurosensing technologies have shown promises of achieving this in the near future. Most existing exoskeletons are designed to serve two broad ranges of use, human strength augmentation and human […]

Hydroponic For Wastewater Management

Hydroponics for wastewater management

Conventional water treatment solutions have been criticized for their lack of sustainability. Researchers at KTH Royal University in Sweden had earlier proposed hydroponic cultivation as an effective ‘ecological alternative’ for wastewater treatment. Now, researchers from Hungary have reiterated their claims by using sewage sludge containing heavy metals like zinc for Szarvasi-1 energy grass cultivation. In […]
