Vision is one of the most useful aspects of life. Overtime the ability to see has guided evolution and allowed for many life forms to survive across the planet. Vision based injuries or degeneration can cause serious problems. While centuries of research have allowed us to understand the eye, we are still trying to figure out many ways to fix damaged vision. Recently scientists worked on an old question, can we give sight to the blind?
What do you call the intersection of Engineering - Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, Computer Science - and Biology? Biomechanical Engineering. This hot STEM career combines these important fields of science and technology to create products and treatments to improve the quality of our lives.
With an ever growing population, access to energy becomes a large factor in planning for the future. Many individuals and organizations have tried to bring alternative power methods to the table, but none have caught on just yet. A new option, the Power Wall, was recently introduced to the world and could very well be a game changer in the energy business.
