    Japanese exoskeleton promises to make schoolgirls taller

    At first glance, the presentation appears to be something of a joke, a robotically cheery schoolgirl wearing the suit. But in this video above, you can watch a man wears the device onto the streets of Japan to show off its stair climbing and running ability. At one point, the video even shows the master-slave controlled hand of the suit delicately cracking an egg.
    Created by Sagawa Electronics, the Powered Jacket MK3 is an exoskeleton suit that can be used to travel around the city and even pick up small objects. The suit weighs about 55 pounds and stands roughly seven feet tall, giving the wearer an imposing profile despite the device's "lightweight" build. According to the website, the exoskeleton will be offered in limited numbers to those interested and will sell for a whopping $123,000 starting this month.

    Scientists Invent Injectable oxygen That Will Let You Live Without
    A team led by researchers at Boston Children's Hospital has designed tiny, gas-filled microparticles that can be injected directly into the bloodstream to quickly oxygenate the blood. Even if you can’t/aren’t breathing. And it can keep people alive for 15 to 30 minutes. The particles are pockets of oxygen in a layer of lipids, specifically fats. This is then suspended in liquid, which can be injected into the blood steam. The oxygen then “squeeze[s] through capillaries,” according to Dr. John Kheir of Boston Children’s Hospital. This invention, it will allow medical teams to keep patients alive and well for 15 to 30 minutes despite major respiratory failure. This is enough time for doctors and emergency personnel to act without risking a heart attack or permanent brain injuries in the patient. Cool, in the future we don't have to breathe in the water?
