Telescopic Eye Implant gets approved by the FDA

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2010

Eyesight is often the first thing to go as we age, but by the time we need them we may just have robotic eyes. VisionCare Ophthalmic Technologies has now had its implantable miniature telescope approved by the FDA. It’s designed for patients over 75 years old, who are suffering from end-stage macular degeneration.

It magnifies and projects images onto a healthy portion of the retina. The downside is that it can only be used in one eye, since the other eye is needed for your peripheral vision, which you wouldn’t want to be without.

Brain scan shows vegetative patient answering yes or no questions

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2010

This raises some interesting issues regarding how we care for those in vegetative states. A new study observed the brain of an unconscious patient responding to yes and no questions just like a normal person. Well, almost. Of 54 test subjects in the New England Journal of Medicine study, one man who was diagnosed as being in a vegetative state five years earlier actually answered yes or no questions. And did so accurately.

The answers came from a brain scan conducted by an MRI machine. Answering “yes” and “no” shows activity in different parts of the brain. For instance the patient was asked if his father’s name was Thomas and the scan showed his brain answering “no.” When asked if his father’s name was Alexander, the scan showed “yes.”

HemAway: The anti-hemorrhoid toilet seat

Posted in Health by Conner Flynn on March 16th, 2009

Having never suffered from hemorrhoids myself, I can only take their word for it that this, the latest in toilet seat/hemorrhoid technology will alleviate your discomfort and allow you to do your business like the rest of us. Dr. Maurello has hemorrhoids. He’s the inventor. HemAway is his idea.

HemAway looks like an angry toilet face, but really it’s a specially designed seat for minimizing the pain from prolapsed hemorrhoids. There’s no easy way to explain this, but it requires the person to position their hemorrhoids in a certain way. The video explains it and as a bonus you get to watch some animated rhoids retract nice and slow. May be slightly NSFW if your boss frowns upon cartoon rhoids.

Robotic Crawler carries you away in an earthquake

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2009

Robotic Crawler carries you away in an earthquakeCheck out the image. You tell me if that isn’t the future of human burial. Robots will carry your corpse directly into your dirt bed, deposit you for your dirt nap and go get another rotting human vessel. It’s probably how they will clean up our bodies when they inherit the Earth. But I digress.

This robotic crawler will soon to be inducted in Yokohama’s fire department. It’s designed to carry a human from the disaster zone to safety. In an earthquake rescue workers can load an injured person in the crawler and that person will be carried from the site to relief operations. It has four wheel belts and can easily move over rubble and other obstacles.

DIY colonoscopy is not a good New Year’s Resolution

Posted in Health by Conner Flynn on December 25th, 2008

DIY colonoscopy is not a good New Year’s ResolutionColonoscopies are not fun. They require nakedness with another man in the room(meaning your doctor). Even if you have a female doc, that’s just as bad. It’s all like a strange consensual alien abduction, only your memory isn’t erased. Sadly, they’re very necessary and can detect and prevent colon cancer. But there has to be a better way.

Wait. There is. Just do the procedure yourself with this harmless looking gadget that bears a lightning bolt and the name of a crap beer. A few beers before hand might be a good idea, before you get all up in your own business. And hey, you’ll feel better about it since you can use this thing in all kinds of dark tight places, not just your fat can.


Skin gun shoots Stem Cells to heal wounds

Posted in Health by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2008

Skin gun shoots Stem Cells to heal wounds
It’s bound to be controversial, because the dreaded “Stem Cells” have been mentioned, but this gun could be a great life saver on the battlefield. Or if you get cut up battling aliens and the like. Or if you are a cutter like Amy Winehouse, you could spray it on everytime you leave the house.

The Armed Forces Institute for Regenerative Medicine has officially invested $250 million in the project. With the help of this gun, gaping wounds could heal in a matter of just hours, getting soldiers on their feet to fight again. It could save lives, money and time. It will be interesting to see what comes of this. Probably be applied to the face-lift industry somehow.

CPR Pad: Align nipples & push

CPR Pad: Align nipples & push
At last, a concept that lets you line up someone’s nipples and give them new life. The idea is that you would have this handy if someone collapses and needs CPR. It’s not intended for any kinky nipple fetish you may have.

Just slap it on the chest, line up nipples and follow the instructions. It flashes to show you the proper timing, and clicks to let you know if you’re using the right pressure. It just might help save a life or two.

The intelligent First Aid kit

The intelligent First Aid kit
First Aid kits are a must to have handy. You never know when you might be on the scene at an accident. But how many of us know how to properly use the supplies inside? Soon, you’ll have a little help. This kit will have individually wrapped medical supplies and more importantly, step-by-step audio instructions that will help you treat many injuries.

The idea is to help people with little or no first aid training. Not only do you have audio aid, but color-coding of packages and illustrations help you get the job done. It will cost $130 and each kit will come with a flashlight.

LED CPR flashlight: Never leave home without it

Posted in Health by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2008

LED CPR flashlight: Never leave home without itIn an emergency situation, you want to be prepared. But not everyone has life-saving knowledge. Let’s say someone has drowned, but you never learned CPR so you can’t raise the dead. That’s where this product combo could really come in handy.

It’s an LED flashlight that walks, or rather talks you through the basic steps of CPR. The whole thing measures only 4 inches, with push-button on/off and CPR read-off features. It covers adult, child and baby instructions. I hope it talks fast enough that it’s not completely useless. Great idea.
