Last week was an exciting week in tech, as we explored how Artificial Intelligence has the potential to diagnose breast cancer, a computer mouse with an entire computer built into it, and how a van has been adapted to help a leg amputee.

The NHS will facilitate a trial to use AI to detect signs of breast cancer. Kieron Medical will test the technology on historic scans at an NHS Trust in Leeds. This is part of a wider project, also supported by DeepMind, to help tackle the issue of a falling number of human radiologists.

YouTuber ‘Electronic Grenade’ has built a mouse that includes a screen and functions as a stand-alone computer. The gadget is made up of a 3D printed mouse, a Raspberry Pi microcontroller and a small Bluetooth keyboard. Electronic Grenade has announced he will post a video in the future detailing how he constructed the miniature laptop.


A group of students in Idaho, USA has adapted a van to help increase a man’s mobility. James Holtson had his left leg amputated a few months ago. A significant adjustment to the vehicle donated by Care Convoy was the addition of a wheelchair lift.
