- The Sound of Silence: will "yell phoning" become a thing of the past?
Scientists at the NASA Ames Research Center in California have developed a system of tiny sensors that read nerve signals in the throat that control speech. You may not make a sound when, say, you read silently, but your nervous system is buzzing with activity. Recently, they used the system to make the first subvocal cell phone call.Who knows. With this technology, we may also see the end of stage-phoning and butt calls (which are completely different from booty calls). But now, you have to be extra careful about swearing under your breath when you're on the phone. [via BoingBoing]
- Let's keep our fingers crossed for this new member of the human race: (very) little Kalea Lynn Allen, born this week, is the world's smallest infant ever at 11 ounces - "less than a soda can."
Deidra Allen, 27, gave birth to little Kalea Lyn Allen earlier this week. The baby was born three months premature and weighed less than a soda can at birth. Doctors said the girl was so small that intravenous and breathing tubes were too big for her. Despite her small stature, officials at Mercy Health Center in Oklahoma City said the baby is doing well.
