How to become a bat: measuring and training human echolocation
How can humans use echoes to navigate in space? Is it possible to train this ability? At Gösta Ekmans Laboratory we have built a machine that will allow us to measure this skill better than ever before and possibly to develop effective training programs. Ultimately, this research has the potential to help those that are visually impaired, by improving their life quality and independence.
Many dimensions of 3D printing
- Houston, we have a problem. - No worries, we are sending you replacement parts attached in this e-mail. Just go ahead and print them!" This is a conversation that can already take place thanks to the development of three-dimensional printing. But how did it start and how far are we from the sci-fi scenario from the "Fifth Element" to print a human body? Come and you will find answers to these questions and also see a live bioprinting experiment on the stage!
