Dr Rachel McKendry from the London Centre for Nanotechnology is heading a world-leading consortium of scientists, who are engineering the next generation of HIV monitoring devices. These new types of
devices will rapidly diagnose and monitor HIV in resource-limited environments such as district hospitals, GP surgeries and developing countries.

Global Warming is a "hot" topic. This video looks at the evidence and focuses on these two questions; Is the Earth getting warmer? and What ARE the effects of Carbon Dioxide in the
atmosphere? Check it out, the answers may surprise you.

Micro and nanotechnologies are revolutionizing medicine
'Almost invisible' tools are being developed by European researchers to discover diseases earlier and to treat patients better. The miniaturisation of instruments to micro and nano
dimensions promises to make our future lives safer and cleaner. A team of European researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Technologies Institute near Saarbruecken is using
nanotechnology to improve diagnostic capabilities. In the "Adonis"-project, nano-sized gold particles are used to detect prostate cancer cells at an early stage. Video streamed by
Using the infrared camera in the Wii remote and a head mounted sensor bar (two IR LEDs) you can accurately track the location of your head and render view dependent images on the screen. This
effectively transforms your display into a portal to a virtual environment. The display properly reacts to head and body movement as if it were a real window creating a realistic illusion of depth and
space. By Johnny Chung Lee, Carnegie Mellon University. For more information and software visit http://johnnylee.net
