The lack of any tactile feedback makes it difficult to type or play games on a touchscreen device. So Swiss researchers have developed a new haptic interface that uses microscopic vibrations that could one day make touchscreens feel like they have individual buttons, or even distinct textures. Can I interest you in a furry iPad?
Before you think about emigrating to the US and applying to NASA, you might want to take some time to peruse the original Lunar Rover Operations Handbook. Even though it dates back to April 19, 1971, a working knowledge of Apollo equipment couldn't hurt your chances.
You probably shouldn't use it as a full-time replacement, but in-between regular checkups with your doctor you can use Philips' new Vital Signs Camera App with an iPad 2 to easily monitor your heart and breathing rates.
Insulin pumps can be an easier way to deal with type 1 diabetes, but only 20 to 30 per cent of the country who rely on insulin use them because they're usually not very discreet.

It's slow, it's pink, and it's piloted by an innocent looking stuffed animal wearing goggles. But that doesn't make YouTube user prallplatte's remote control trike any less badass. Better still: the trike is actually powered by steam, courtesy of a large boiler running down its spine. That's crazy.
