7 Groundbreaking Scientific Achievements Trying to Make Lives Better

It seems that 3-D printing has evolved so fast that the days of replacing human parts without anyone telling the difference aren’t too far away, but the mind-controlled exoskeleton and a bionic eye to help the blind are also among some amazing scientific developments it’s quite incredible to know exist.

Bionic Eye

Bionic Eye

According to researchers, a combination of the eyepiece and an implanted chip in the brain will give the user a low-resolution outline of objects. It’s meant to help the completely blind gain a little bit more independence in their day-to-day lives.

Exoskeleton Developments


Developed in order to help paralyzed people, and is supposed to be fully operational through mind control.



At the moment,it isn’t really affordable,costing $338,000 to make.

Rhesus disease is one of the causes of hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN). The disease ranges from mild to severe, and typically occurs only in some second or subsequent pregnancies of Rh negative women where the fetus’s father is Rh positive, leading to a Rh+ pregnancy. During birth, the mother may be exposed to the infant’s blood, and this causes the development of antibodies, which may affect the health of subsequent Rh+ pregnancies. In mild cases, the fetus may have mild anaemia with reticulocytosis. In moderate or severe cases the fetus may have a more marked anaemia and erythroblastosis (erythroblastosis fetalis). When the disease is very severe it may cause haemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN), hydrops fetalis or stillbirth.

The Brazilian wandering spider has a very painful bite which may cause paralysis and loss of muscle control, but another “funny” side effect is it might cause an erection that lasts for hours. Be sure there’s someone working on trying to make the most of this.
