Coating Could Strengthen Nation's Infrastructure

Researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology have developed a glass-based coating for reinforcement bars that helps prevent corrosion and strengthens the bond between steel and concrete. This material could help engineers build stronger bridges and increase the longevity of other steel-reinforced structures.

Researchers Build Advanced Mechanical Horse For Therapy

While hippotherapy works to improve the quality of life for children and adults with physical and mental impairments through riding a horse, just getting some patients onto the horse can be a major obstacle. But now, Baylor University researchers have built a custom mechanical horse to help those with physical and mental impairments get the same benefit from hippotherapy without having to actually get on to a horse.

New Videoconferencing Technology Possible for Cell Phones, PDAs

A new low-bandwidth, high-frame-rate videoconferencing technology that creates the appearance of three-dimensionality and a strong sense of co-presence without the use of expensive motion-tracking devices or multicamera arrays could eventually become available for cell phones, laptop computers and personal digital assistants, according to a researcher at the University of Virginia.

Star Trek-like System Offers Noninvasive Monitor for Patients

Put that needle down, doctor! Scientists with the National Space Biomedical Research Institute are developing a noninvasive, needle-free system that uses light to measure tissue oxygen and pH. The new system will soon be an alternative to the painful use of needles to draw blood and cumbersome equipment to determine metabolic rate.
