For the avid golfer, perfecting your swing can take hours of dedicated focus and practice. In golf, the difference between a slice and a great shot can come down to tiny, and often unseen, flaws in technique, […]
Taking its cues from the haunting electronic instrument, the MoCapaci project sews a theremin into a blazer to feed a deep-learning system with data for accurate gesture sensing and activity recognition.
Thanks to the enhanced light-field technology developed by EPFL spin-off Creal, augmented-reality and virtual-reality images appear increasingly life-like with less strain on users’ eyes. The company will p […]
KIT researchers make physical-virtual models usable for engineers – new possibilities for non-contact cross-location work
Can my product do what it should – and will customers buy it? The answer to this question […]
NASA is looking into whether mixed reality technology could help with repairs and upgrades on the cutting-edge Cold Atom Lab aboard the space station.
NASA’s Cold Atom Lab is a first-of-its-kind physics lab […]
Designed to address the problem of accurately detecting objects — like other vehicles and pedestrians — at distance, Google and Waymo’s 4D-Net offers a novel and generalizable approach to sensor fusion with som […]
Demonstrated by researchers in Hong Kong, this closed-loop human-machine interface (CL-HMI) system lets you take control of a robot via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or the Internet — and to feel what it feels.
There was a t […]
The design could help restore motor function after stroke, enhance virtual gaming experiences.
When you pick up a balloon, the pressure to keep hold of it is different from what you would exert to grasp a jar. And […]
Robotic wheelchairs may soon be able to move through crowds smoothly and safely. As part of CrowdBot, EPFL researchers are exploring the technical, ethical and safety issues related to this kind of technology. The […]
An ROV camera is any visual imaging system that can be used on underwater ROVs to provide the operator with a perception of the operating environment. The depth rating for an ROV camera usually starts at 300m.
Suppose you have ever been staying in a room on the upper floor of a hotel and felt like indulging in a late-night snack or drink, but resisted the urge because you could not face trailing all the way down to the […]
Penn State researchers say that nanoscale technology may help elevate thermal performance to that of double-pane windows in winter.
Double-pane windows, which sandwich a layer of insulating air, can offer […]
A group of researchers from ITMO University, the Australian National University, and the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany) has for the first time demonstrated effective generation of higher harmonics in […]
Scientists from SCAMT Institute have devised a way to produce nanoparticles of iron oxides (magnetite, hematite, maghemite) using water-alcohol synthesis, as well as modify their color, size, and functional […]
Future-proofing buildings and portfolios with smart technology is no longer an option; it’s an absolute necessity.
Although data is the life blood of a smart building, simply having access to raw data is not e […]
Logistics companies can manage their supply chains and respond to issues more efficiently when they have a clear and continuous view of the location of assets carried by containers and pallets. Asset tracking […]
Wireless technology has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Type 1 diabetics. And the developments keep coming.
