  • PIP Is A Bluetooth Biosensor That Aims To Use Your Phone To Gamify Beating Stress

    Irish startup Galvanic has just launched a Kickstarter to crowdsource funding a wireless stress biosensor it's calling PIP. PIP is a Bluetooth biosensor that monitors its user's stress levels by measuring their galvanic skin response (GSR) as they hold the PIP pinched between thumb and forefinger. GSR means skin conductance -- so basically how sweaty you're getting.

  1. "People suffering from EHS have significantly higher natural rates of membrane leakage as measured by their skin conductance (Eltiti et al. 2007). Since their leakage rates are already high, even small amounts of electromagnetic radiation that would...

  2. "Below the superconducting transition, the tunneling conductance showed a large unexpected asymmetrical feature near zero bias," Eckstein said. "This is evidence that crystals of high-temperature superconductors, atomically truncated with a...
