Bear est l’un des 3 chiens aux Etats-Unis dressés pour retrouver des iPads, des disques durs ou de minuscules cartes mémoires pour venir en aide à la police criminelle. Leur assistance est précieuse, car les preuves pour impliquer un suspect se trouvent souvent sur des supports de stockages électroniques si petits, qu’ils sont faciles à cacher mais difficiles, voire impossibles à trouver lors d’une fouille.

Tiny, 3D-Printed Fish to Swim in Blood Stream, Deliver Drugs
microfish cover.jpgNew 3D-printed fish-shaped microbots — called microfish — could one day transport drugs to specific places in the human body and be able to sense and remove toxins. [via]

quotemarksright.jpgThese microfish, smaller than the width of a human hair, are groundbreaking for two reasons: they’re simple to create, but remarkably high-tech in what they can do, according to researchers at the University of California, San Diego.

... These proof-of-concept synthetic microfish will inspire a new generation of ‘smart’ microrobots with capabilities such as detoxification, sensing and directed drug delivery, according to the researchers.

“Another exciting possibility we could explore is to encapsulate medicines inside the microfish and use them for directed drug delivery,” Jinxing Li, the other co-first author of the study, said in a statement.quotesmarksleft.jpg
