Ginger Or Segway Transporter

Ginger is a brilliant invention created by Dean Kamen in the year 2001. There was a bit of mystery around this invention but once it was demonstrated, its ability was appreciated world wide.

The segway transporter is an electric power transportation machine. It is basically a personal human transporter; it uses five gyroscopes and built in computer. The segway can move at a speed of 12mph and it has no brakes. The speed and the directions can be controlled manually by the rider shifting weight and with the help of handlebars.

So far the public demonstrations have shown that segway can easily travel through grass, pavement and minute obstacles. Sensors in segway control the movement of segway. When the person moves forward, the sensors detect the motion of the rider and thus enable the segway to move forward and if the rider pushes backwards the segway moves backwards. One battery costs 10 cents and lasts for almost about 15 miles so the fuel for the machine is very affordable.

It is made of plastic and titanium and is able enough to self contain. Artificial heart has already done many miracles.

There have been few cases when people were declared too ill by the doctors for heart transplant but artificial heart did wonders for them. This invention has proved to be ground breaking in the field of medical science and was named Time’s invention of the year.

Artificial Liver

One of the most important and complex organs of human body is liver. Liver removes the toxins from the blood and manufactures great amount of proteins, and also play part in metabolism.

The device to replace original damaged liver is now in its final stages. This artificial liver is used as a bridge for the liver transplant with as much minimal chances of liver failure as possible.
