HARKEN car-based system

The advanced HARKEN car-based system alerts drivers about their fatigue levels

The 'comical' trope of a driver falling asleep at the wheels has been done to death in popular media. Fortunately, a team of European scientists are developing a car-based system that might prevent accidental automobile oriented deaths in real-time. The consortium behind the incredible project has christened the technological application as HARKEN or Heart and…


3D printed blood vessels: One step closer to developing artificial organs

A major ongoing project in the field of biomedical engineering is 3D bioprinting, a highly intricate process of recreating cell and tissue patterns, in a laboratory, in order to produce artificial organs. By employing this concept, scientists have successfully constructed jawbones, tracheas and even urinary bladders from existing stem cells. (more…)
