By electrically stimulating the severed part of the spinal cord, scientists are able to precisely control in real-time the limbs of a paralysed rat -- and human trials are on the way.
These electric buses can charge up at a stop in the amount of time it takes for passengers to get on and off.

People with hemophilia or on blood thinners could soon skip a trip to the doc's and instead put a drop of blood on a microfluidic sticker on their smartphone screen to test how their blood is coagulating.
Researchers have created a prosthetic hand that allows the wearer to feel objects via wires to the nerves in the upper arm.
Big Blue is using the human brain as a template for breakthrough designs. Brace yourself for a supercomputer that's cooled and powered by electronic blood and small enough to fit in a backpack.
To accommodate all the data needed to model the 70 million neurons that make up a mouse brain, Big Blue is using scads of the same type of memory used for PC solid-state drives.
A quadruped robot developed at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne has been taught to walk by being fed data based on the movements of a horse.
Scientists at École Polytechnique have developed a tiny, wireless implant that can monitor a patient's blood, sending results to the doctor via Bluetooth to a smartphone app.
