While this may have improved access to care for many, it didn't mean a great deal to those without a smartphone. The team is now looking to expand the reach of its technology by designing a system that allows patients to call in from anywhere in the world, from any phone, to gauge the health of their lungs.

Trocadero’s unfixed fixie: The bicycle with the twisting frame

There's absolutely no practical thinking behind this wacky bicycle, and ... that's kind of okay with us.
