3-D scans for the automotive industry
How does an automotive assembly line have to be retrofitted for a change of model? 3-D scanners are an elegant way to find this out. Professor of computer science, Andreas NĂĽchter, is a specialist for the job.

First 3-D platform for simulating zebrafish behavior may replace animals in some research
Every year, approximately 20 million animals are used in scientific research. Increasingly these animals are zebrafish, which are quickly eclipsing rodents and primates as a favored species in biomedical research because of their genetic similarity to humans and their versatility. However, concerns voiced by policymakers, citizens, and scientific authorities about the number of animals used in experiments have led researchers to explore alternative, computer-based methodologies that could help reduce animal usage without compromising results.

BLAST: Greater speed, accuracy in recognizing brain injury
Modern body armor better protects warfighters against shrapnel from explosive blasts. However, they still face a hidden threat—the resulting blast pressure and shock wave that could cause traumatic brain injury (TBI).

New metamaterial can switch from hard to soft -- and back again
When a material is made, you typically cannot change whether that material is hard or soft. But a group of researchers have developed a new way to design a 'metamaterial' that allows the material to switch between being hard and soft without damaging or altering the material itself.

Microscopic submarines for your stomach
Tiny 'submarines' that speed independently through the stomach, use gastric acid for fuel (while rapidly neutralizing it), and release their cargo precisely at the desired pH: Though it may sound like science fiction, this is a new method for treating stomach diseases with acid-sensitive drugs. The technique is based on proton-driven micromotors with a pH-dependent polymer coating that can be loaded with drugs.
