Smart Earbud Will Measure How Astronauts Sleep

Smart Earbud Will Measure How Astronauts Sleep

Astronauts find it difficult to maintain a natural circadian rhythm and generally complain about their sleep. Researchers have developed a technology that can read the brain's electrical activity and map our sleep patterns. The technology, along with astronaut Andreas Mogensen, will travel to the International Space Station ISS to examine the differences between human sleep patterns on earth and in space.

Wearable Chemical Sensor is Good as Gold

Wearable Chemical Sensor is Good as Gold

Researchers created a special ultrathin sensor, spun from gold, that can be attached directly to the skin without irritation or discomfort. The sensor can measure different biomarkers or substances to perform on-body chemical analysis. It works using a technique called Raman spectroscopy, where laser light aimed at the sensor is changed slightly depending on whatever chemicals are present on the skin at that point. The sensor can be finely tuned to be extremely sensitive, and is robust enough for practical use.

Blood Pressure E-Tattoo Promises Continuous, Mobile Monitoring

Blood Pressure E-Tattoo Promises Continuous, Mobile Monitoring

Blood pressure is one of the most important indicators of heart health, but it's tough to frequently and reliably measure outside of a clinical setting. For decades, cuff-based devices that constrict around the arm to give a reading have been the gold standard. But now, researchers have developed an electronic tattoo that can be worn comfortably on the wrist for hours and deliver continuous blood pressure measurements at an accuracy level exceeding nearly all available options on the market today.
