Coplanar Technique

The coplanar technique is a method of generating 3D models from two or three sets of 2D drawings. It is frequently used in CAD rendering, where the front, and top of an object are shown to scale, along with maybe the side, then these are combined and filled in as a 3D structure.

Optics and Neuroprosthetics
A new tack in neuroprosthetic interfaces is being born out of pulses of light rather than electricity. Termed 'optogenetic neuromodulation, the technique is being pioneered in the hope that it will enable a far greater level of accuracy and single-cell stimulation than is possible with electrode interfaces.
