TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) -- New technology is now making it easier for those affected by Parkinson’s disease to be able to write more effectively. A design group from DOPA solutions created a pen that vibrates, which makes it easier to write. The vibrations stimulate the muscles in the patient's hand to counteract the physical tremors that often come with the disease. The pen is also larger, which makes it easier to hold. So far, most patients tested are able to write more legibly thanks to the pen.
First, drones & heat seeking missiles, and now self-guided bullets? That's exactly what the United States department of defense is testing. Sniping from a far distance is tough in itself, but now the smart ammunition can weave & wind finding moving targets. No word on exactly when these new bullets will be put into action.
And finally, the newest discovery in paleontology. Click the video on the left to see this scary looking dinosaur that lived during the Jurassic era 160 million years ago. Scientists found its bones in northeast china and named it yee-chee--which translates to "strange wing". And that's what it is, a dinosaur that had wings similar to a bat, and was roughly the size of a pigeon. Because of its bone structure, researchers say it likely glided from tree to tree to eat insects.
