Double amputee walks again due to Bluetooth

Last month while I was in India I watch a documentary about a European family man who had been blind since before the war. That was more than half a century long. Till he was brought to the USA for a kind of experiment to make him see again. The moment the bondages were removed he saw a miracle. He was able to see again with the aid of a very small object planted in his eye. What do you think did he say after being able to see again, the world, his family whom he had not seen ever since and the American doctor? “America is great!” Okay. And so he has great people who lost lives and arms and legs in order to defend its greatness. Ok.

Marine Lance Cpl. Joshua Bleill lost both his legs above the knees when a bomb exploded under his Humvee while on patrol in Iraq on October 15, 2006. He has 32 pins in his hip and a 6-inch screw holding his pelvis together. Now he’s starting to walk again with the help of prosthetic legs outfitted with Bluetooth technology more commonly associated with hands-free cell phones. These groundbreaking artificial legs are the latest and greatest. Computer chips in each leg send signals to motors in the artificial joints so the knees and ankles move in a coordinated fashion. The former was able to see again, this man can walk again. It is just great! More of the story here.

The Endless Frontier

The Ice Age, The Bronze Age, etc., no one had ever the idea that we will have something called The Internet Era. What is next? But for brilliant and curious people every thing will be researched with Science – the Endless Frontier. Vannevar Bush of Chelsea Massachusetts, a Yankee inventor born in 1890 was a familiar figure in American history for beginning the Internet story. Adept with numbers and fascinated by gadgets, he studied engineering at Tuffs University, where, in 1913, he invented a device to measure distances over uneven ground and called it Prolific Tracer. During the interwar years, a series of revolutionary inventions transformed daily life. He invented a mechanical computer designed to mechanize the solution to differential equations, a mathematical problem that had tormented students. Kudos to him for making it easier for us. In 1945, Bush published Science – the Endless Frontier, in which he proposed federal financing of basic scientific research, especially in the fields of health and national security. This led to the creation of the National Science Foundation which became the main government agency for supporting most basic scientific research.

The biggest problem facing scientists after the war would be information overload. “The investigator is staggered by findings of thousands and thousands of other workers – conclusions which he can not find time to grasp, much less to remember, as they appear. And then the explosion of potential solutions: microphotography and the cathode ray tube. The former could reduce the Encyclopedia Britannica to the volume of a matchbox. The latter could be used to display text pictures on glass screen. Put together, one can store all his books, records, and communications, and which is mechanized, so that it may be consulted with exceeding speed and flexibility. The proposed machine was called “Memex”. And the rest is history. (dot.con – from memex to internet)

Singapore overnight

Of the fourteen hour layover, got online for a while, but I had not dozed off good, so I was exhausted, and again, can’t sleep in the plane, but I could and did bear it. Did not mind them all as long as I arrive home from what seemed to be a very very long flight from Singapore to Cebu. What an experience. Singaporean airport guards inspected our passports and boarding passes around three in the morning, and for the second time during the layover, someone said “Pinoy”, guessing we are Filipinos. Sikat talaga ang mga Pinoy, hehe. I met there two Indonesian women, one being so talkative, the other so peacefully sleeping on the chair, and some Filipinos. These are the photos we took around the airport. Just sharing our snapshots.
