Which explains why, in true Silicon Valley fashion, Raghav Ganesh thought the world was overdue for the white cane, 2.0.

    A small system for reading and interpreting the intentions of highly disabled persons who cannot communicate normally has been developed by a team of researchers at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture. The researchers hope to develop a practical model with a price under 100,000 yen within the next few years.

A related approach could see the use of plasmas to speed the healing of wounds. Writing in the New Journal of Physics, the authors say plasmas could help solve gum disease or even body odour.
