Researchers at UNSW have for the first time used a cochlear implant to regrow auditory nerves and restore hearing in guinea pigs.
Instead of a cochlear implant or a traditional hearing aid, this device would fit like a retainer inside a patient's mouth. Combining the device with training the brain to decode impulses from the tongue's nerves, you would theoretically be able to "hear" sound.
Quantum dots have been successfully 3D printed into a contact lens, allowing the lens to project beams of light.
Get set to strap on some piezoelectric headgear to keep all your wearables charged and ready to use.
A gadget for text messaging without cell service sees a spike in interest from the pro-privacy crypto and Bitcoin communities -- even though that wasn't its creators' intention.
A tiny chip implanted under a woman's skin can deliver hormonal birth control for up to 16 years and is entering pre-clinical trials next year.
An in-ear gadget that doubles as a Bluetooth headset can be customized to your distinct hearing profile to amplify sound and drown out background noise.
Stanford researchers find a new way to safely charge tiny devices embedded inside the body. Cyberization, here we come.
Electrical engineers unveil a prototype the size of a pencil eraser that would reside in the middle ear instead of worn externally behind the ear.
The ear's cochlea houses a natural battery containing ions that create a tiny electrical voltage. Researchers are developing chips with such low-power demand that this voltage just might be enough to power them.
