Body Centric Communications

Body centric communications is any communication on, within or around the body using wireless technology. In this film, engineers give examples of the applications of this technology, including wireless devices which monitor blood glucose and communicate directly with a device which can administer insulin. This...

Engineers Without Borders

This video, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), features the international development organisation, Engineers Without Borders. Chief Executive, Andrew Lamb, explains how the organisation facilitates young people finding out about how technology can drive incredible change in people’s lives...

Mind Control

This film, from the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), explores the possibilities of using thought to control machines.

Researcher engineers at Plymouth University are exploring a direct interface between somebody’s brain and a computer which lets you choose options by just thinking about...

Mind Mapping

Dr Richard Wise works at the Brain Research Imaging Centre at Cardiff University. He explains how the centre is using magnetoencaphelography (MEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to explore brain function.

The film explains how the two scanners work and how images from both scanners can be combined...

The Amazing D30

In this video, from the Institution of Engineering and technology (IET), Richard Palmer tells the story of the development of a new smart material D30. The polymer is based upon a fluid which behaves differently depending upon the speed at which the fluid is asked to move. When asked to move at slow speed the...

Green School

Howe Dell School was commissioned by Hertfordshire County Council as an exemplar eco-school. It took eight years to plan and build and features a wide range of engineering solutions and green technologies. For example, the inter-seasonal heat transfer system uses the playground surface to absorb heat energy...

Safe Drinking Water

This video looks at the availability of clean water around the world and solutions to the problem of water borne diseases. A water and waste engineer talks about her work in water treatment technology. She explains the steps involved in treating water for microbial contamination – filtration and disinfection....

Power House

This video looks at the challenges of reducing global warming and carbon emissions. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is a new boiler technology which has the potential to transform the way electricity is produced and distributed. This is currently used in industrial and commercial settings, but micro CHP could offer...

Bionic Limbs

Richard Hirons, a clinical specialist in prosthetics, explains how engineers are designing prosthetic limbs which can reproduce normal sensory and motor control for amputees by combining sensors, artificial intelligence, motors, electronics, software and accelerometers.

Mark Woods, a paralympic gold...

Nature Reinvented

This video from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) looks at how bioengineers are developing new treatments for torn ligaments. Tissue engineering involves taking the patient's own cells and growing them on a synthetic scaffold before reintroducing them into the patient. This avoids tissue...
