Artificial olfaction: the diagnostic and environmental applications

The olfactory system (otherwise known as ‘olfaction’), occurs in the nose and forms a sense of smell. Olfaction has various purposes, including smelling food, detecting hazards, and also pheromones. Olfaction happens when an aroma compound (also refereed to a chemical compound which have an odour) binds, in the naval cavity, with odorant receptors (olfactory receptors). Over recent years, there has been an increasing amount of research surrounding artificial applications for olfaction. Artificial olfaction (also known as ‘machine olfaction’) is a type of technology which features a sensor array which can both receive and evaluate different odours. Most recently however, artificial olfaction technology has developed different sensor arrays that replicate important organs of human olfactory system. This includes systems such as: the olfactory epithelium, cortex and nerve.1 Artificial olfaction has various different applications. SciTech Europa takes a look at the different ways artificial olfaction can be used; from detecting illnesses by smelling human breath, to finding contaminated food. When it comes to clinical diagnosis, there are a number of different compositions that can ...

Lighting is about so much more than just illuminating a room. A spectacular chandelier or a

Lighting is about so much more than just illuminating a room. A spectacular chandelier or a row of simple bulb pendants can elevate a space even during the daylight hours. This has been demonstrated beautifully, in the homes on our House Tours event, taking place on the 6 & 7 June, sponsored by Little Greene, Nespresso and Yves Delorme. So if you weren’t able to attend the House Tours event and see the homes for yourselves, here’s the skinny on the lighting.. Artist and Stylist, Liza Giles’ home has beautiful high ceilings and ornate plasterwork, so her intention was to ‘humanise’ the scale of the space and make it feel less imposing. One of the ways she did this in the kitchen was to hang an antique chandelier deliberately low to relax its lofty proportions. The industrial style pendants in the background enhance this and provide a foil to the grandeur of the central light fixture. The master bedroom in Claire’s home nails two lighting trends on one with some clever sourcing by interior designer, Julia Thompson of Frank Interiors. Julia found the dramatic vintage ceiling light on Vinterior.co. Rather than adding bedside table lamps she’s teamed it with low hanging bare bulb...

You Can Now Ask Google Assistant On Your Phone To Control Your Air Conditioner – Tech

Yes, it is really that easy to control your AC with your phone or Google Home device. With the summer at its peak, the need of ACs is growing exponentially. A myriad of air conditioners already exists in the market but with technological advancements at their peak, they have become so much more than just devices that throw out cool air. These air conditioners are not only fancy but have also become multi-functional devices that allow you to control the weather indoors by just talking to your phone. Whirlpool, one of the global leaders in home appliances, offers a wide range of inverter air conditioners, each of which brings something unique to the table. However, the company has now added a couple of new interesting features to its latest model from the 3D Cool Pro Range of Inverter Air Conditioners, where you get the power of 3D Cool Technology now with Voice & Wi-Fi support.

The Wi-Fi feature offers you to operate the key functio...

Samsung’s Bixby will soon ID the foods in your Family Hub fridge

It’s called Bixby Vision, and it’s coming to Family Hub fridges this April, complete with improved voice controls. Samsung’s touchscreen-equipped Family Hub smart refrigerator includes built-in cameras that let you check the contents of your fridge from afar on your phone. Now, at CES 2019, the Korean manufacturer tells us that an April software update will enable Bixby to automatically detect, label and list some of the foods you put inside. Samsung calls the feature Bixby Vision, and it won’t be able to ID everything. The company demoed the feature for me on the CES showfloor by putting fruits, veggies and unpackaged meat and fish inside. It was able to ID all of it and add it to the Family Hub’s food list — though it did identify two bell peppers as “paprika” for some reason. Still some kinks to work out before April, it seems. I wouldn’t expect it to be able to ID too much more than that at launch, so for a lot of your groceries, you’ll still need to manually tag them on the touchscreen in order to add them to your food list. Samsung does tell me that Bixby Vision will improve as users continue manually tagging thei...

So really, how much does it cost to ship a car? Whether you’re moving, temporarily relocating

So really, how much does it cost to ship a car? Whether you’re moving, temporarily relocating for an extended job contract, or buying a vehicle from an out-of-state seller, options are numerous in transporting your vehicle from its current location to its new home. In general, these options boil down to one of two alternatives: drive the vehicle to its new home yourself, or have it transported there, professionally using some kind of auto transport services. Each option comes with its own set of pros and cons. Your final decision may be based on numerous factors, including the distance to the new destination, the timing of your trip, the cost of each alternative, and the overall time and effort required for each. If you’re relocating to the next state temporarily for a new job contract, driving your vehicle yourself may be feasible. If you’re moving permanently across the country in a small window of time, driving the vehicle yourself may not be. There are many factors at play, and the best answer is the one that best suits your specific preferences and situation. If you’re considering having your vehicle shipped professionally over a long distance, you’re not alone....

How the love of a child led to a Bible collection for the ages

The Coverdale Bible, from 1535, is the first complete Bible, (including both the Old and New Testament), to be translated into modern English. A family’s love for a lost child has led to a remarkable collection in Philadelphia of one of the world’s most widely read books: the Bible. Susan “Kimmy” Dunleavy was killed in an auto accident in 1977. A year later, The Susan Dunleavy Collection of Biblical Literature at LaSalle University was established by her parents, Francis J. Dunleavy, President of ITT, and his wife, Albina, to honor her. At first, the collection, house at the school’s Connelly Library, was rather narrow. According to its web page, it was tasked with “documenting the history of early Bible illustration, with special emphasis on 16th century woodcut Bibles.” Thom Carroll/PhillyVoiceBibles printed by Christoph Sauer in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia are now part of the Susan Dunleavy Collection of Biblical Literature at La Salle University. In North America, Sauer was the the first German language printer and publisher, and created the first German language Bible. Bibles printed by Christoph Sauer in the Germantown n...

Dig deeper into the details of your dream car, hear stories of the best road trips, and read more on the cars that shaped our world. Suzuki’s much-loved Vitara returned in 2015 and it was a happy day for people over a certain age. Over the years, Suzuki has tweaked and trimmed the range, ditching the diesel (much to the chagrin of towing fans) and leaving us with three Vitaras with the subtly updated 2019 model – the entry-level, the Turbo and the Turbo Allgrip. The entry-level Vitara is a lot of car for the money but there is a small catch – instead of the excellent 1.4-litre turbo engine of the other two, it ships with a 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated engine that has significantly less power than anything else in the segment. That doesn’t seem to bother the target market, though – the base Vitara is by far the biggest seller in the range. Engine aside, there is much to like about the base model Vitara – in fact any Vitara – and this one is a pretty decent $24,990. That lands you, all the way from (somewhat unexpectedly) Hungary, 17-inc...

Metal Gear Solid Retrospective: ‘You Enjoy All The Killing, That’s Why’

After Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, the titular character went into retirement—both in the series’ fiction and real life. It would be another eight years before fans would play a Metal Gear game. That game was Metal Gear Solid, and it helped codify the stealth genre forever. Solid Snake’s story is full of betrayal, blood, and isolation. Metal Gear has always been a series about impeding player progress. Its traps and enemies exist to ward off players. Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake brought back returning characters and offered a new fortress, explicitly rejecting the notion that players could truly save the world. Metal Gear Solid leverages this impulse and turns it towards Snake himself. Whenever he succeeds, events conspire to immediately undercut that success. His (and the player’s) skills mean little in the face of scheming villains and politicians whose background machinations have rigged the game before the start. Released in 1998 for the PlayStation, Metal Gear Solid is one of the most fondly remembered video games in the medium’s canon. Its tense stealth-action gave rise to countless imitations from WinBack to Spy Fiction. After Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake had teste...
