Description

It's a challenge to get reliable medical equipment to healthcare workers in developing nations. This compact, foldable microscope costs under a dollar and can be shipped in an envelope. Also, an innovative passenger-heated bus shelter, and a video game that teaches coding. If you're using public transportation to get around during the winter, you know how cold waiting for the bus can be. Duracell is making things more comfortable with their 'Moments of Warmth' bus shelter that heats up when commuters hold hands. *'Moments of Warmth' via Official Duracell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mQZqKLiMIg The origami microscope could revolutionize both education and healthcare in rural areas and developing nations. The premise is simple: increase mobility and decrease costs with foldable cardboard equipment. Developers say their 2,000x microscope is lightweight, fits in a pocket, and costs under a dollar. *'Print Your Own 50-Cent Microscope' via Stanford Medicine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBjIYB5Yk2I Coding is a valuable skill in the digital age, and Glitchspace thinks the best way to learn is by playing a video game. Instead of promoting violence, Glitchspace is a first-person shooter game that shows users the basics of coding. It's still in its beta phase, but may be in a classroom someday soon. *'Glitchspace' via Space Budgie Games https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cajSZ6s5MrQ
