Stanford Engineers Create A Computer That Runs On Water Droplets
Jun 17, 2015
Bioengineering is a fairly new field of study that draws from a wide array of scientific fields. Utilizing electrical and mechanical engineering, computer science, chemistry and biology, bioengineers have almost free reign to specialize and collaborate. Though the field is large, it's unified with a main goal, which is to solve real-world problems related to the life sciences through the analytical and synthetic methodologies of engineering.
It might not seem like a huge breakthrough to some, but Manu Prakash and his students have developed something that will hopefully lead to a whole new way of using computers. Prakash runs his lab as part of his work at Stanford University, where he's an assistant professor of bioengineering.
