All You Need to Know About Samsung’s Galaxy Book Windows 2-in-1

At MWC (Mobile World Conference), we have been able to see a lot of technological advancements within the smartphone industry. And, this is where Samsung also announced the Galaxy Book Windows 10 2-in-1. Well, it clearly looked like a blunt answer to Microsoft’s Surface Pro line. But, we have not been able to hear any news about Galaxy’s Book release date after that.

Although the specifications of the device seemed superb, but the audience was unclear about its availability. However, now people have a reason to know more about Galaxy Book Windows 2-in-1 because its release date is officially confirmed.

You will be able to get your hands on the LTE model from 21st of April, while the WiFi version will hit the retailers on May 21st. The LTE version basically comes in two sizes, 12-inch and 10.6 inch, therefore the price also varies quite prominently. The model with 12-inch will be available for $1, 300, whereas the one with 10.6 inch for $630.

Smart Bandages Are More Likely to Enhance the Health Tracking Process

Have you heard about smart bandages before?

Well, this is the kind of bandage that has the ability to detect how speedily a hound is healing and sends a progress report to the doctor. Yes, it is true and this incredible technology will be exposed to the market from next year according to the scientists.

Let’s talk about how it works!

The entire bandage is occupied with very tiny sensors which are tailor-made to pick blood clotting and identity infections. And, it all gets done wirelessly.

Swansea University is the origin of these data driven bandages and hoping to make its first trial by the next year.

All in all, it would turn out to be an amazing help for physicians to customize treatments based on the progress of your wound. For instance, if you are healing well, you will be provided with a solution in accordance with your condition.

Prof Marc Clement, chairman of the Institute of Life Science at Swansea said: “This is a multi-technology approach, with nanotechnology, nanoelectronics, printing and coating biochemistry all interconnecting through 5G infrastructure to allow us tomorrow and in the future to deliver health care for a wound patient that delivers better patient outcomes and better quality of life.”

Scientists are Building Tiny Cancer-Fighting Robots to Combat Disease

Scientists have been working so hard to integrate robotics into intricate medical treatments. Well, due to the reason, doctors now have tiny devices that are excessively used to inject drugs into an individual’s eye. Moreover, such devices are also used on areas which are hard to reach.

The good news is, scientists have recently come up with an effective way to combat cancer using magnetized swarm of microscopic robots.

A team of researchers at Phillips Innovative Technologies in Hamburg, Germany is the mind behind this innovation. They have created a way to place each robot in a swarm and provide them specific tasks through magnetic fields.

“Our method may enable complex manipulations inside the human body,” said study lead author Jurgen Rahmer, a physicist at Philips Innovative Technologies in Hamburg, Germany.

Such a group of scientists believes that treating cancer with this technology can protect healthy tissues and possibly lessen harmful side effects. But, I think it’s too early to say anything until we have some real-life examples.

McDonald’s Has Re-Engineered Straw for Shamrock Shake

It seems that McDonald’s is keen to make a solid impact with its scrumptious Shamrock Shake. And to boost its marketing campaign, the famous restaurant chain has decided to introduce a re-engineered straw.

Yes, you have heard that right!

The straw is not something out of this world thing in terms of its design and functionality. However, it has been created with a legitimate purpose. The Shamrock Shake is a combination of chocolate milkshake with a sizzling touch of mint flavor in it. Which means, enjoying both of the flavors together is merely impossible until the shack melts down. So, to overcome this problem, a team of robotic and aerospace engineers have reinvented the straw that you can see in the image above.

It comes with four holes that surely allow you to enjoy a delectable combination of chocolate shake with minty seasoning. But unfortunately, a fewer quantity of straws will be available in the market. Therefore, McDonald’s wants you to keep visiting its website to know where and how you can get the straw.
