WHOAA! Microsoft has majorly upgraded the surface 2.0 experience it seems. I was over excited when I saw it had medical applications in the clinical informatics domain allowing for clinical staff to share and view information amgost them or even when communicating with patients. Boy do I love to have a demo version of this at work and try it out with our new clinical informatics projects.


Salem: Thanks for sharing bro

With the new year festivities and all the lads at Chalet, a dear friend/bro brought his xbox and the new KINECT! I’m amazed how great of a gadget it is and I would think it’s probably a new hit when it comes to video games that encourage physical activity, like the Wii-Fit!

Now what’s cool about Kinect is that it doesn’t require holding or wearing any gadgets, and it even saves those precious moments you have with your friends while in action! That’s cool 🙂 The one thing to consider though is the privacy of such pictures and how they are stored/shared.

Good move Microsoft!

My attempt in blogging from my iPad 🙂

“Scientists at John Innes Centre in Norwich, UK managed to create Cowpea mosaic virus particles that are missing their genetic material, turning them into drug ferrying containers that may prove useful against cancer and other localized diseases.” – Micheal, Medgadget

In plain English: genetically modified viruses can possibly carry drugs one day to cells that have cancer and other dangerous diseases! Keep up the great work Brits!

“Federation of American Scientists has developed a freely downloadable video game that simulates some of the processes going on in the body. The FAS has even initiated a study to see whether kids become more receptive of the relevant concepts.” – Michael, Medgadget

Good stuff! About time, but definitely would be nicer if the graphics were enhanced a bit, had a plot and a story line 🙂 Download it here!

Ok OK! I know I’m wayyyyyyyyyyyyy late, but I just watched the Wall-E, the animated cartoon! I loved the cartoon and the message behind it. I even laughed so many times 🙂

What’s interesting is when Wall-E boots up, he make the mac noise I hear when I turn on my macs at home!!! Now Wall-E is even cooler, don’t you think?

If you’re from “those people” that think that gaming is good for nothing, think again!! Simon Scarle, a computer scientist at the University in Warwick, has modded Microsoft’s Xbox 360 which

“produces data tracking how the electrical signals in the heart moves about damaged cells, creating a model of it. The model can then be used to help doctors to identify defects and disturbances in the heart’s beating. This significantly decreases the costs and complications of creating a model of the heart, which is currently done by supercomputers and is very expensive.” – Laura June, Engadget
