In vivo liquid biopsy using Cytophone platform for photoacoustic detection of circulating tumor cells in patients with melanoma | Science Translational Medicine
Cytophone is a rig that straps onto you skin without surgury, detecting and zapping cancer cells in blood. So, just waiting long enough should have most of your blood pass through the spot the Cytophone is blasting.

Music in premature infants enhances high-level cognitive brain networks | PNAS
Certain structured music for premature babies can help recover neural development lags from full third term delivered babies it seems. Wonder if running the same sounds through a speaker attached to the woman's belly might improve things for normal babies? MP3's included

A strongly adhesive hemostatic hydrogel for the repair of arterial and heart bleeds | Nature Communications
UV hardening/gelling hydrogel as a way to sell wounds. Sticky so can be used to seal blood vessels. In the Vietnam War, the US military used superglue in the same capacity, but the skin irritation factor is the reason why the FDA never approved it for civilian use.

A comparison of the antifouling performance of air plasma spray (APS) ceramic and high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) coatings for use in marine hydraulic applications: Biofouling: Vol 34, No 5
Still kinda expensive to do a whole ship hull, but this basically uses a supersonic flamethrower to treat a metal surface with a carbide layer for biofouling protection, cuts fouling by 50% or more.

Therapeutic luminal coating of the intestine | Nature Materials
Similar to gastric bypass surgery remove a segment of GI tract, or similar tubular net like structures inserted after the stomach, they effectively block nutrient absorption. So, the idea here is, make a pill that can temporarily coat the GI tract to block nutrient uptake. No need for heavy surgery and no risk of a mesh tube getting dislodged, but you need to take the pill regularly.

Lucky Iron Fish
For rice heavy diet regions where people suffer from iron deficiency, assuming their local water isn't arsenic contaminated (which blocks iron uptake), putting a lump of bio-available iron in water or soup during cooking (10 minutes, with a bit of lemon to improve uptake) had substantial health improvement without the side effects of typical iron supplement tablets.
