In this episode, Mo Rocca explores a Medical MacGyver that makes health devices from toys, train spinning, computerized Smart Shopping Carts, and soda bottle lights.
Technological development and advances in mobile devices, including the growth of Apps, have generated a technological revolution. Some experts label this as the greatest revolution sin the Industrial Revolution. In this episode, Nerdo Cavernas demonstrates the top 3 applications of each operating system for the most popular smartphones and tablets.
Some bandages are embedded with medicine to treat wounds, but researchers at Harvard University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have something much more sophisticated in mind for the future of chronic wound care. With support from the National Science Foundation, engineer Ali Khademhosseini and a multidisciplinary team are bringing together advances in sensors, biomaterials, tissue engineering, microsystems technology, and microelectronics to create “smart bandages” for wounds that require ongoing care. The devices, known collectively as flexible bioelectronics, will do much more than deliver medicine. They will be able to monitor all the vital signs of the healing process and make adjustments when needed, as well as communicate the information to health professionals who are off-site.
Mobile computing is accelerating beyond the smartphone era. Today, people wear smart glasses, smart watches, and fitness devices, and they carry smartphones, tablets, and laptops. In a decade, the very same people are likely to wear or carry tens of wireless devices and interact with the Internet and computing infrastructure in markedly different ways. Computer scientist Xia Zhou is working to make sure there are no traffic jams with the increased demand. With support from the National Science Foundation, Zhou and her team at Dartmouth College are developing ways to encode and transmit all that data faster and more securely.

The University of Washington is advancing research into deep brain stimulation, which is used to treat people with essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, and other conditions. At the Center for Neurotechnology, a team is designing and testing upgrades for devices to make them smarter and less intrusive. Along with enhanced brain sensors, new control algorithms, and machine-learning techniques to improve device performance, the team is ensuring the design meets the day-to-day usability needs of patients.

Smart Puppy and Sir Harold Kroto, a Nobel Prize Chemist, discuss the science behind a buckyball. They use a soccer ball to help demonstrate its structure. Part of the “Smart Puppy! and Friends” series.
Can a tennis ball go through a wall? Smart Puppy and his friends learn the science behind quantum tunneling. Part of the “Smart Puppy! and Friends” series.
The first thing a baby giraffe experiences after being born is a two-meter fall straight down to the ground. But within an hour, it’s standing, walking, and nursing on its own. A blue whale calf, after nearly a year growing inside mom, can swim to the surface moments after being born. Human babies on the other hand are born unable to move or eat on their own. If humans are so smart, why are human babies so unsmart? Some may think it’s all about head size, but the real science is more complex. Part of the “It’s Okay to Be Smart” series.
The city of Ann Arbor, Michigan has turned to engineering research to tackle an issue facing many cities: aging stormwater infrastructure during a time of tight budgets, growing populations, and more extreme weather. With support from the National Science Foundation, civil and environmental engineer Branko Kerkez and a team at the University of Michigan are building a new generation of smart and connected stormwater systems. Part of the "Science Nation" series.
There is an elaborate social network living in forests. It’s called the “Wood Wide Web,” a massive and intricate network of fungi that exchange water, nutrients, and chemical signals with plants. This network of fungi is essential to the health and function of forests and to controlling climate change. Part of the "It's Okay to Be Smart" series.
How does eye color work? Get ready for a long look deep into the genetics and physics of eye color. Part of the "It's Okay to Be Smart" series.
Engineers are joining forces with designers, scientists, and doctors at Drexel University to produce new biomedical textiles, and the resulting smart clothes are not only fashionably functional, but could also be life savers. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), electrical and computer engineer Kapil Dandekar, industrial and fashion designer Genevieve Dion, and OB-GYN Owen Montgomery are incorporating RFID technology into their “belly bands” for women with high-risk pregnancies. The band continuously tracks data and alerts the doctor’s office via the Internet should the woman start contractions. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
Half a century ago, astronauts got on top of a really big rocket and sent a tiny little capsule on a 384,000 km trip to the moon and back. They were able to do it because a lot of extremely smart and dedicated people pushed engineering and chemistry to the limits. In this episode, host Joe Hanson travels to NASA in Houston to talk to astronaut Don Pettit about the rocket equation. Part of the "It's Okay to Be Smart" series.
