Ideatech has applied for a small business grant to TechColumbus. TechColumbus has invited Ideatech to demonstrate and present initial findings on SonicBRA, SonicOM and other products in November 2013. TechColumbus provides small business grants from the State of Ohio.
Terrorist Mind Detection:
Dr. Asari of the University of Dayton is working on the research to spot a terrorist by reading his or her mind. That sounds like science fiction, but Asari says technology exists for detecting brain-wave patterns indicating a person is intent on doing harm. Dr. Asari says “It is just a matter of training an EEG (detection) system to identify the long-term intentions” of those plotting violence.
Children & Cell Phones:
The use of cell phones by children as young as five years old in England and several European countries is advised to be curtailed by their respective national medical associations. Some research indicated a more than five-fold increase in glioma, a cancer of the glial cells that support the central nervous system. Children are more at risk because their brains and their nervous systems are still developing and also their heads are smaller and their skulls are thinner – the electromagnetic radiation from cell phones penetrates deeper into their brains. The American Medical Association (AMA) says the data is inconclusive, and they do not have any such recommendations as given in some European countries.
