What is wetPONG?
The field of micro- and nanosystems in life sciences is inherently highly interdisciplinary. In both academic research and industrial R&D the people involved need to be able to communicate and work with a large number of collaborators from different fields and backgrounds, know about the possible applications in the pharmaceutical industries, medicine and patient care and take responsibility of the societal implication of their work. Successful products and research findings can only be achieved when this transdisciplinary collaboration is learned and taught on-the-job and at all levels Read the story »

Simplicity: Paper based microfluidics, diagnostics for all

Paper-based microfluidic devices, new opportunities for diagnostics in the developing world.
The Simplicity approach of recent research done at the Whitesides group in Harvard has led to a series of simple and cheap microfluidic devices based on simple paper or DIY solution to build a centrifuce from an egg-beater. Shortly after publication in Lab-on-a-Chip and PNAS [...]

What is Creativity?

Auszug aus einem Interview mit Wolf Singer, Hirnforscher:
Was ist Phantasie aus der Sicht eines Hirnforschers?
Das ist die Fähigkeit, mit dem gespeicherten Material kombinatorisch zu spielen, es in neue Verbindungen zu bringen, Verbindungen zu entdecken, wo früher keine waren. Das ist die Essenz von Kreativität: mit dem, was man schon kategorisiert und formuliert hat, noch mal [...]

Team Monkey
The goal of this project was building a microfluidic game. For further information about the project pleas use this link http://wetpong.net/wetpong/?page_id=2
Back to « Team Monkey »
We had several ideas for different games, however, we decided to develop 2 games. (http://wetpong.net/wetpong/wiki/index.php?title=Erste_Woche).
That’s maybe the largest difference to the other teams, because they developed just one game.
The two games [...]

Due to the fact, that all other groups made similar things, we decided to create a new idea. Our new concept is BIOSNAKE. Everybody knows it from the earliest Nokia cell phone generation the famous game SNAKE. We are sure, that also you have already played SNAKE at least once. For combining the topics Microsystems [...]
