Advances in 3D vision technology and Virtual Reality are widely publicized and Google glasses have made this wearable technology accessible. Advances in devices that leverage our auditory senses and hearing are next on the horizon. Poppy Crum, Chief Scientist at Dolby labs is aiming to “de-stigmatize” the use of hearable technologies. This is about a
The “near” future of automotive travel is self-driving vehicles and there is some debate about on the tools used to enable this automation whether via cameras or a technology called “LIDAR.” “Lidar works much like radar, but instead of sending out radio waves it emits pulses of infrared light—aka lasers invisible to the human eye—and
Scientists, led by Takao Someya from the University of Tokyo have created a thin electronic film that integrates with your skin for health monitoring and a clinic machine interface. In order to create a non intrusive patch, the team have adapted a nanomesh that carries the receptors and wirelessly detects, touch, temperature and pressure. A hypoallergenic
teamLab are digital artists located in Tokyo, Singapore and Shanghai. Their work transcends traditional definitions and is ever changing as projected images and coloured lights interplay with those who interact with the installation. “teamLab believes that the digital domain can expand the capacities of art, and that digital art can create new relationships between people”
Researchers are now thinking differently on the potential for colonizing Mars. By the time oxygenic photosynthesis evolved on Earth, Mars had been a hyperarid, frozen desert with a surface bombarded by high-energy solar and cosmic radiation for more than a billion years, and as a result, photosynthetic surface life may never have occurred on Mars.
Tesla (website) are leaders in electric vehicle innovation. Their advancements in compact battery technology have revolutionized the industry and made electric cars viable, albeit at a premium. They are now extending their learning on battery technologies in to residential and commercial applications harnessing solar panels with local batteries. Tesla energy Powerwall Powerwall detects grid outages and
