Usually when we think of wearable technology we think of cutting edge technology and modern developments. After all, wearable technology is only a recent development right? Actually not so much. Some of the cutting edge technologies of the 40s and 50s were actually wearable, including the Radio Hat. Introduced as the ‘Man-From-Mars Radio Hat’ this hat was geeky, extremely non fashionable,...

The human brain is, undisputedly, the most mysterious organ in the human body. The lungs and the heart? Forget about it. Totally knowable. Information on the brain, however, is so elusive and so often contradictory that its astounding that we have actual scientists that study it. What do they do all day? One of the reasons why is scientists tend to look for the universal instead of the individual. It may just be that the human brain is like a snowflake and no one is like any others. Therefore, any studies that assume all brains are the...

A sweaty, heat-stricken bird just told me that it is summer time and the living is “easy.” Just one step outside and you are likely to break into a sweat at best, and pass out on the hot, sticky pavement at worse. Unless we have our very own air conditioned Disney mascot costume, we are pretty much out of luck on the personal cooling front. Or are we?...

The human brain is a fragile, and quite fallible, thing. Nowadays we rely on Google and quick texts to obtain information instead of study or wracking our noggins in a feverish frenzy.
