Disney Looking To Add Sense Of touch To Gaming
2013-07-19 16:33:28

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Disney Research has developed a method to engage the sense of touch to add to the interactive gaming experience. A new technology called AIREAL uses controlled puffs of compressed air to create the impression of a ball bouncing off a hand, a tingling from the flutter of a butterfly's wing, or the rippling of air as a seagull circles a user's head. Scientists used vortices for the virtual experience, which can travel longer...

Practical New Approach To Holographic Video: MIT
2013-06-20 05:17:32

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are reporting in the journal Nature that they have developed a new approach that could lead to cheaper, color holographic-video displays. Researchers are using this new technique to build a prototype color holographic-video display with a resolution similar to that of a standard-definition TV that can update video images 30 times a second. The heart of the display features an optical chip that resembles a microscopic slide....

New Device Could Contribute To A Major Increase In The Rate Of Future Optical Communications
2013-01-08 20:58:34

Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences At a time when communication networks are scrambling for ways to transmit more data over limited bandwidth, a type of twisted light wave is gaining new attention. Called an optical vortex or vortex beam, this complex beam resembles a corkscrew, with waves that rotate as they travel. Now, applied physicists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have created a new device that enables a conventional optical...


Word of the Day
Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
This word was invented in 1926 by H.P. Lovecraft for his short story, 'The Call of Cthulhu.' 'Cthulhu' may be based on the word 'chthonic,' which in Greek mythology refers to the underworld.
