Artificial Graphene Throat Sounds Work

Researchers have developed a skin-like artificial graphene throat can be applied to the neck like a temporary tattoo. The wearable artificial graphene throat, abbreviated as “WAGT” can be used to generate sound. “Most people take speech for granted, but it’s...

Wearable technology for health and fitness

The wearable technology market for health and fitness is constantly looking for new materials. Using graphene for sensors, health tracking and so on is a growth business. Created in 1780, the world’s first pedometer was developed using an earlier mechanism of a...

Graphene Strain Sensor is Worlds Smallest

A new graphene strain sensor (worlds smallest) could be used as a wearable blood pressure monitor in a skin patch configuration or other medical sensing applications. “Grolltex, has shipped the first version of its patented single atom thick strain sensor to a...

Detecting Stomach Cancer Causing Bacteria

Detecting stomach cancer causing bacteria with graphene and tiny droplets. The graphene sensing surface is able to feedback on electrical signals that depend on how much of the reaction product is present in the droplets. “Researchers at Osaka University have...

Graphene Flakes to Stop Epileptic Seizures

Could graphene flakes be used to help prevent and mitigate seizures? A team of researchers have tested tiny flakes of graphene as part of neuroscience research. “During epileptic seizures, the brain’s excitatory neurons go haywire, generating extreme amounts of...
