Topic: Technology 3:42 pm EDT, Apr  9, 2003

Michael Malone writes in the February issue of Red Herring. (This is the article that John Markoff mentioned in today's NYT article.)

Stomach Pacemaker
Topic: Technology 4:43 pm EST, Mar 24, 2003

] Almost 40 million U.S. adults are obese, according to the
] Centers for Disease Control, and this year some 70,000 of
] them will go under the knife to have their stomachs
] bypassed or stapled in painful and expensive procedures
] that prevent overeating. But if human trials now under
] way in the United States pan out, overweight people may
] one day have a less invasive surgical option: a device
] that helps people feel full by stimulating the stomach
] with electricity in much the same way a pacemaker
] stimulates the heart.

I thought this was a pretty neat idea...isn't technology just strange sometimes.

] do tend to be toys, like Sony's Aibo pet, that serve only
] to entertain.
] Robotics researchers are realizing that the journey to
] more autonomous, adaptable robots will require more than
] just improvements in mechanical, sensory and computing
] capabilities. Equally important, they say, is improving
] the way people and robots interact: after all, they say,

] coating that makes it contract when the strain on it
] passes a pre-set level.

Just think of the applications for a fabric like this. Very cool.
