Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For years and years, even in the early days of cinema and television, engineers and researchers have tried to craft a way to add the illusion of depth to projected images. We´ve long relied on glasses in order to achieve this 3D effect, and while the glasses we use now are a far cry away from the paper blue-and-red lenses we once wore, many are still attempting to create a lens free solution. Now, an optics research team from...

Many people anticipating the creation of an invisibility cloak might be surprised to learn that a group of American researchers has created 25 000 individual cloaks. But before you rush to buy one from your local shop, the cloaks are just 30 micrometers in diameter and are laid out together on a 25 millimeter gold sheet. This array of invisibility cloaks is the first of its kind and has been created by researchers from Towson University and University of Maryland who present their study...

The lens is what matters: if lens arrays could be made of glass, it would be possible to make more conveniently sized projectors. Fraunhofer researchers have now developed a process that allows this key component to be mass produced with extreme accuracy. Projectors are getting smaller and smaller. Now that pictures are available in digital format almost everywhere, we need projectors to beam giant photos and films onto walls. Projectors contain lenses that spread the light from the pixelated...

Super-powered, they are modeled on those of insects, developers say U.S. scientists say they've created super-powerful artificial eyes inspired by those of dragonflies and other insects. "I've always wanted to create an advanced, three-dimensional optical system, but conventional microfabrication technology is two-dimensional. So, I started thinking about basing a fabrication system on the developmental stages of insect eyes that I'd learned about as a biophysicist and bioengineer," said...
