E-textiles at CES 2019

Once again, CES 2019 displayed many examples of e-textile products throughout the exhibition floor. As ever, companies ranged from early stage start-ups scattered throughout "Eureka Park", through to some of the best known and longest established players with booths (generally in the Sands Expo). In this article, we will describe our overall impressions, followed by listing summaries of each of the companies that we visited and interviewed.

Smart microrobots adapt to their surroundings

Scientists at EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed tiny elastic robots that can change shape depending on their surroundings. Modeled after bacteria and fully biocompatible, these robots optimize their movements so as to get to hard-to-reach areas of the human body. They stand to revolutionize targeted drug delivery.

New CRISPR-Cas9 variants can respond to viral proteases

Using a technique called circular permutation, researchers have created a new suite of Cas9 variants called Cas9-CPs, which will simplify design of Cas9-fusion proteins for diverse applications beyond simple DNA cutting, such as base editing and epigenetic modifications.

AI outperformed human experts in identifying cervical precancer

A research team has developed a computer algorithm that can analyze digital images of a woman's cervix and accurately identify precancerous changes that require medical attention. This artificial intelligence approach, called automated visual evaluation, has the potential to revolutionize cervical cancer screening, particularly in low-resource settings.

3D printed sponge to minimise effects of cancer treatment

With the help of sponges inserted in the bloodstream to absorb excess drugs, doctors are hoping to prevent the dangerous side effects of toxic chemotherapy agents or even deliver higher doses to knock back tumors, like liver cancer, that don't respond to more benign treatments.
