Mountain Trike announces two new off-road wheelchairs

Mountain Trike's new MT Evo is designed for riders without full use of their hands

Last year we heard about the GRIT Freedom Chair, an off-road wheelchair that users propel using arm levers instead of hand rims on the wheels. While it’s pretty neat, it isn’t the first product of its kind. One of its predecessors is the British-made Mountain Trike, which is now available in two new models to accommodate riders with varying physical challenges.

Cardiac events could be diagnosed using a “heart attack thermometer”

In order to confirm that a patient presenting with a heart attack has in fact had one, doctors typically use bulky, expensive lab equipment … which isn’t always available to clinicians in developing nations or rural locations. That’s why scientists from Korea’s Pohang University of Science and Technology have created a simple thermometer-like device that reportedly does the job.

A quick video tour of Lumia Camera 5.0 and the Lumia 640 XL

Long time Lumia users remember the Lumia Camera app as the Nokia Camera App. Branding changes and a multitude of camera apps could get confusing for anyone, right?

In the following video, let’s take at the Lumia camera apps, and what all it has to offer after the Windows Phone 8.1 Denim update. The latest camera app is the Lumia Camera 5.0, and it brings the next generation of image processing algorithms to capture sharper pictures with more detail both day and night.








Microsoft Edge extensions on phone only a ‘long-term goal’ for now

Microsoft Edge aka the Project Spartan browser is due to launch with Windows 10 later this summer. Post-release, it will receive support for third-party extensions later in the year. Developers can easily port over existing extensions from Firefox or Chrome, making Edge a very powerful option for many users.

The question lends itself to asking about Windows Phone. After all, Microsoft Edge is a universal Windows app, so extension support would seem highly likely. However, as it turns out, it is rather nuanced.








Onion cells used to create artificial muscles

Artificial muscles could one day revolutionize fields such as robotics, prosthetics and nanotechnology. So far, we’ve seen examples made from materials like electroactive elastomers, crumpled graphene, and vanadium dioxide. The problem is, most artificial muscles can only expand in one direction, or contract in the other. Now, however, scientists from National Taiwan University have gotten around that limitation using gold-plated onion cells.

Apple Watch Uses 28-Nanometer Samsung Processor

Since the Apple Watch was released on April 24, several teardowns from iFixit, Chipworks, and ABI Research have divulged information on the inner workings of the device, detailing everything from battery capacity to the manufacturers who created the miniaturized parts for the device.

A report last week took a deep look at the S1 chip that runs the Apple Watch, pointing towards 512GB of RAM, a Broadcom Wi-Fi chip, an accelerometer/gyrometer from STMicroelectronics, and today further investigation from Chipworks (via Ars Technica) has revealed 30 individual components inside the 26mm x 28mm S1 chip, a feat Chipworks calls “quite an accomplishment.”

s1-composite2

Apple and/or their suppliers have designed and manufactured a 26 mm x 28 mm package that is very unique. Let’s consider its construction for a moment. We have a common motherboard to which all of the components (wafer scale packages, PoPs, BGAs, etc.) have been attached. The entire motherboard, with all of its components, is then overmolded with a packaging compound containing silica or alumina spheres suspended in a resin. We see this same type of material in conventional IC packaging, but we have never observed this being used over a 26 mm x 28 mm motherboard.

Among the more interesting discoveries Chipworks has made is the manufacturing process for the APL0778 application processor (CPU/GPU) on the S1 chip. It was made with Samsung’s 28 nanometer LP process, which, as Ars Technica points out, is no longer cutting edge technology. A 28-nanometer processor was also used in the iPhone 5s, while the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus used 20-nanometer A8 processors.

A 28-nanometer chip in the current-generation Apple Watch suggests Apple could size down to a newer process in future devices, bringing a jump in performance alongside a reduction in space to make room for additional components. Samsung’s chip technology has progressed to a 14-nanometer process, which we may see in the next-generation iPhone, among other products.

In short, the use of a 28-nanometer processor suggests there’s a lot of room for improvement when it comes to processing power in future Apple Watch devices. Though the Apple Watch has only been available for two weeks, we’ve already heard some rumors about the next version. According to reports, health sensors that did not make it into the first-generation device may be added to the second-generation version, perhaps allowing it to track health-related metrics like stress levels, blood pressure, and oxygen levels.

We’ve also seen rumors suggesting the first update to the Apple Watch will come in the form of additional casing options, perhaps later this year. A second-generation device with upgraded internals is not expected until 2016.
