Virtual Reality for training at Rolls Royce & Qatar Airways

Rolls-Royce and Qatar Airways have begun investigating ways to bring virtual reality technology into their training programs to help ease the demand of engineers. The number of engineers needed to repair aircraft is rising daily, and could be said to double by 2036. As a result, both companies want to find an innovative way to build skills and refresh skills of aircraft engineers.  The IntelligentEngine vision uses HTC Vive VR equipment to allow the engineers to become fully immersed in an engineering virtual reality, where they can use touch, sight and sound to separate parts of an engine.  “We developed a fully-immersive VR version of the engine,” said Moss. “In fact, everything that you can do in real life is remodelled in the engine, so you can take the engine to pie

New Hydrogel Patch developed to reduce heart attack damage

Soochow, China, Fudan University and Brown University, US, have collaborated to design and create a hydrogel patch which can reduce the amount of damage caused from the aftermath of a heart attack and publishing it in Nature Biomedical Engineering. Created used food starch, the new hydrogel patch is adhesive, meaning that is can be placed and stick directly on to the heart.  It is said to work by preventing the heart from remodelling, which can occur as the result of a heart attack, and also reduces the function of the heart’s main pumping chamber. The international team tried to create a patch which has the perfect thickness and stiffness to create a supportive cure, which isn’t too restrictive.  “Part of the reason that it’s hard for the heart to recover after a

Real Time Sweat Monitor has launched

Sweati, alongside the Imperial College London, have developed and now launched their non-invasive device. The new real-time sweat monitor can track glucose, lactate and hydration, by using microfluidics and chip technology. The device itself is relatively small, fitting in the palm of your hand and about two credit cards in thickness and has been designed with athletes, soldiers and diabetics in mind. “Imagine a device that will be able to tell you when to fuel, when to hydrate and what pace to run at,” said Sweati founder and CEO James Mayo. “That means no more hitting the dreaded ‘wall’ whilst running a marathon. Sweati will make working out enjoyable and efficient. “For diabetics, it would mean no more blood draws interrupting their day as the patch will continuou
