Auxiliary Means

Multifunctional e-glasses monitor health, protect eyes, control video game

Fitness tracker bracelets and watches provide useful information, such as step count and heart rate, but they usually can't provide more detailed data about the wearer's health. Now, researchers have developed smart e-glasses that not only monitor a person's brain waves and body movements, but also can function as sunglasses and allow users to control a video game with eye motions.

Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and MIT have developed pop-up shoe grips, inspired by snake skin, that can increase friction between the shoe and the ground.

The earlier children are diagnosed, the better their chances of early access to evidence-based interventions targeted specifically for CP.
