Laser tech is set to measure earthquake damage to buildings

A diagram illustrating how the Discrete Diode Position Sensor works

How safe would you feel, going back into a multi-story building that had just been through an earthquake? A new sensor system could allay your fears, as it optically measures how much a building has swayed, and thus how damaged it may be.

Injected after accidents, nanoparticles could prevent paralysis

The technology may someday be incorporated into an EpiPen-like device, that would be used to rapidly ...

When a spinal cord injury occurs, sometimes it's the body's own immune system that causes the subsequent paralysis. In the not-too-distant future, however, it's possible that an injection of nanoparticles at the injury site may be able to reign in the well-meaning but destructive immune cells.
