How am I feeling? Ask my house KYOTO, Japan & OSAKA, Japan-Monday, October 2nd 2017 [ AETOS Wire ] (BUSINESS WIRE)-- In early 2016, researchers from Kyoto University's Center of Innovation and Panasonic Corporation developed a radar-based device that could instantaneously and accurately measure the body's vital signals -- and now they've made it even better.

"Moreover, it will reduce stress by not subjecting the individual to a feeling of being monitored." While the original technology showed promise, there was a majo ... Read more »
