Neuros Control Tablet turns $130 Android slate into LINK remote [Video]

It's been a while since we've heard from Neuros, but it seems the company's reworked open-source media player isn't the only thing they've been working on.  In fact, they've been playing around with an Android tablet, but rather than hoping to make it the be-all and end-all competitor to the iPad they've instead turned it into a flexible remote control for their LINK system.

Neuros offer cash incentives to open-source LINK coders

Open-source set-top box manufacturer Neuros have kicked off some "bounties" for their LINK media device, offering cash incentives for developers to code new functionality.  The first task, for which Neuros are offering a $2,500 reward, is to get the LINK connecting directly with Netflix (or $500 if done via a PC app intermediary) before they themselves or Boxee manage it; meanwhile the second task is to develop a Move Networks plug-in for the device, for which Neuros will pay $2,000.

Neuroscientist restores sight to blind mice using Star Trek tech

Neuroscientist restores sight to blind mice using Star Trek tech

A neuroscientist has made a medical breakthrough by restoring vision to blind mice. The researcher has provided hope to millions of people around the world without sight. The researcher is Doctor Sheila Nirenberg, and her research has enabled the mice to see well enough to track squirrels and distinguish a baby's face. In a bid to grab Sheldon Cooper's heart, Nirenberg envisions a day when blind people will wear Geordi La Forge visors.

Great Brain Experiment makes your phone a crowdsourced neurology lab

Great Brain Experiment makes your phone a crowdsourced neurology lab

A new app that aims to bypass expensive neuroimaging scanners and bring brain research to your smartphone screen hopes to use "big data" principles to unlock more of the mind's secrets through the familiarity of games. The iOS and Android app, The Great Brain Experiment, is the handiwork of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL, and tests memory, impulse control, happiness, and visual perception, with tests that would traditionally have meant extended stays in an fMRI scanner.

Radiation in space could cause changes in the brains of astronauts

Radiation in space could cause changes in the brains of astronauts

A new study conducted on mice has been investigating what the effect of radiation in space that astronauts would be subject to on a mission to Mars might do to the brain. NASA hopes to put astronauts on the surface of Mars or possibly asteroids closer to the earth in the coming decades. According to the study, researchers have shown for the first time that exposure to radiation levels equivalent to a Mars mission could produce cognitive problems and speed changes in the brain.
