California Scientists Build A Camera To Take Pictures Of Huge Swath Of Sky

Researchers developed the world’s largest digital camera that breaks all resolution records in digital photography

inside a cell with VR

he software, called vLUME, was created by scientists at the University of Cambridge and 3D image analysis software company Lume VR Ltd. It allows super-resolution microscopy data to be visualised and analysed in virtual reality, and can be used to study everything from individual proteins to entire cells. Details are published in the journal Nature Methods.

Super-resolution microscopy, which was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2014, makes it possible to obtain images at the nanoscale by using clever tricks of physics to get around the limits imposed by light diffraction. This has allowed researchers to observe molecular processes as they happen. However, a problem has been the lack of ways to visualise and analyse this data in three dimensions.

AR on the windshield

Forget AR glasses. Augmented reality is headed to your windshield from r/gadgets

a U.K.-based company called Envisics, believes that he’s found the perfect use case for real-life augmented reality holograms.

However, the biggest reason in-car AR could succeed is this: It solves a problem that actually exists. AR headsets could wind up being the biggest thing since the smartphone.

HaptX Exoskeleton

ForceBot is a four year project to develop an exoskeleton for commercial and enterprise applications using HaptX’s microfluidic touch feedback technology to simulate virtual objects. The NSF grant will be distributed between each company to contribute individual components to ForceBot, and then the resulting IP will be used for commercial products.
