Quetzal, The Microsatellite Developed by MIT and UNAM

unamQuetzal is a new microsatellite developed for monitoring air pollution in different cities of Latin America, with a peculiar and unusual history, as this project is the result of teamwork of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and  Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT himself, whose presence in the country is increasingly apparent, between the existence of such developments and the imminent arrival of his division to boost the business MITEF Enterprise Forum , opening offices in city of Guadalajara in the month of February.

MIT is Working on a Smartphone with Screen as Iron Man

telephone 1At MIT have always loved to surprise us with amazing technologies. This time do it with a completely transparent, capable of passing light display, and modify it only in specific places to have amazing effects.

Science fiction has always been wonderful technological breakthroughs showing hardly applicable to the real world.However, sometimes movies, books and games end up serving as crystal balls to predict what exact location being routed technological advances, or at least where you have to do it eventually.

Only Two Neural Circuitry Prevents you to Stay Paralyzed

rsz_brain-4Store memories in our brain is uniquely determined by two neural circuits. Perhaps in the future, the construction of memory can be altered by turning some specific groups of neurons

Imagine you hear the halt of tires and then the sound of breaking glass. How will  react your brain next time you face a similar situation? What are the tricks that our brains use to archive in memory that these two events are related to a traffic accident?

The so-called episodic memory is related to the memory of certain events, which need not be associated with traumatic events. Save these events in our brain involves activation of an important part of this, known as the hippocampus .

MIT:Flexible and Adaptable Robots,Capable of Changing Shape

MIT-Flexible-Adaptable-RobotsT-1000 , a robot that is able to take any form by changing the position of its body parts.  It seems that the MIT begins to take its first steps in the development of reconfigurable robots able to take any form .

The milli-motein , which is the name of this pre-robot developed by MIT, is a small device, shaped like a caterpillar and made with metal rings inspired by the reconfiguration of proteins, it has the ability to modify structure and take any shape.

Cataracts Diagnoses Through Smartphone Attachment .

Cataracts Diagnoses Through Smartphone Attachment .A cataract is a term used for a clouding that develops within the crystalline lens of the attention or in its envelope, varying in degree from slight to complete opacity and obstructing the passage of sunshine.

Researchers at MIT’s Media Lab have created a smartphone attachment referred to as Catra that may diagnose cataracts in an exceedingly matter of minutes. The screening tool is currently being tested on subjects.
