  Teenager gets 4 years in prison in school shooting plot case <p>A teenage boy accused of plotting a mass shooting at an Ohio high school has been sentenced to four years in prison.</p>An adult-court judge in Columbus on Thursday sentenced 17-year-old John Staley III, who earlier pleaded no contest to a charge of conspiracy to commit murder.

Electronic skins might not only detect health troubles in the near future, but display them for the world to see. University of Tokyo researchers have developed an e- skin that can measure vital signs like your heartbeat and display them in real time on a skin display .

An electronic skin can display a person’s heartbeat whilst attached to the back of their hand . The e- skin displays a patient’s electrocardiogram – a waveform representing the electrical activity of the heart .

University of Tokyo researchers have developed an e-skin that can measure vital signs like your heartbeat and display them in real time on a skin display. The design blends a breathable nanomesh electrode and stretchable wiring with an array of micro LEDs that can output basic images bending with your body. Others know right away if you need help -- they'd just have to look at your hand (or anywhere else the sensor works) to get an idea of what's wrong. The sensor can pair with a smartphone and transmit its info to the cloud, too.

Biomedicine: Self-Healing, Recyclable Electronic Skin

  Biomedicine: Self-Healing, Recyclable Electronic Skin Making recyclable electronics is crucial for curbing electronic waste."This has quite broad applications, in a sense, to enable sensation of otherwise passive systems," Jianliang Xiao, mechanical engineer at Boulder who led the study, told Newsweek. Those passive systems are the electronic devices we use, but which don't have the same capabilities that our skin naturally has.

The electronic display sits snugly on the skin , but even with that durability and stretch, not a single pixel failed during the study and development. Those pixels also won't hinder the body and skin 's natural movement.

Electronic skins might not only detect health troubles in the near future, but display them for the world to see. University of Tokyo researchers have developed an e- skin that can measure vital signs like your heartbeat and display them in real time on a skin display .

There have been stretchable displays before, but they typically fall apart quickly after exposure to air and the usual stretching and twisting of your skin. The sensor itself lasts for about a week without inflammation, too, and was built using conventional circuit board manufacturing techniques that should keep the cost down.

This isn't just a theoretical exercise. Dai Nippon Printing hopes to offer the skin within the next 3 years by making it more reliable, scaling production and improving its coverage for large surface areas. Should all go well, it could be particularly helpful for home care patients. Rather than having to wear a bulky device that requires close inspection, they could broadcast their health status to family members and carry on with their lives relatively unhindered.

5 ways Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 is better than the iPhone X .
Officially, it's only day 2 of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. But everyone at the event and around the world already knows that the high point of the show is already behind us.&nbsp;Tech journalists and bloggers will spend a ton of time in the coming weeks comparing Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to dozens of different smartphones. Some comparisons will be more useful than others, but the most important one is fairly obvious. When the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are released on March 16th, they’ll be Samsung’s best smartphones ever. So it’s only right that we spend some time comparing them to Apple’s best smartphone ever, the iPhone X.
