Colored Infrared Camera

Researchers from Nanosystem Research Division of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) could come up with new technology that uses infrared light to produce color images in total darkness. However, it is worth noting that the resulting images do not have exact shades.In the future, researchers are looking forward to improving the camera that can take pictures with more accurate colors, and even shoot video that looks as if it was dismantled during the day.It is worth noting that the camera uses a highly sensitive infrared photography. The latter scans the environment in order to obtain a digital layout. After producing a digital image, the camera generates different algorithms that scan the wavelength at a time when the next object is illuminated by infrared light.The next step is to improve and enrich the camera images, more vivid colors.Researchers say that the camera can be used in various ways, including tracking anduse in the wild.Currently the team is working on in order to make the camera more compact and durable.

People With Spinal Injuries Can Type With Mind

For people with spinal injuries or other conditions that impair use of the arms or vocal cords — or for the curious who just think it’s cool — the intendiX spells words based on brain waves. A skullcap along with a computer interface, the system is in development by Austrian company Guger Technologies. It was demonstrated at CeBIT, an annual worldwide digital industry event, held this year in Hanover, Germany, from March 1 to 5. To pick up brain activity, the skullcap is covered in electroencephalographic (EEG) electrodes. Unfortunately, this early model requires that the user put gel between his and her head and the EEG electrodes to function properly (though a dry version is forthcoming). The wearer stares at a computer screen, which flashes highlights over different rows in a matrix of letters and symbols set up like a keyboard on the screen. Simply by paying attention to the desired letter for a few seconds, the program can determine what the user intended to pick.

Robotic Hand Can Type Insted of People

That’s supposedly what people with mobility problems will one day be able to say to their robot companions if engineers at Virginia Tech in the US get their way. They want to create robots with the manual dexterity to operate the machines people regularly encounter in everyday life, whether they are plain old computers, drinks vending machines, bus/tram/train ticketing machines or shopping mall info kiosks. But there’s a problem: right now, the robotic hands that have been developed for tasks such as spacecraft maintenance (like NASA’s Robonaut), defusing IEDs (as Shadow Robot has suggested) or the astonishing nerve-controlled prosthetic limbs from TouchBionics, are all geared for their own tasks – and not for circa 30-words-per-minute typing or sundry button-pressing tasks by robots.

Laptop With Eye Controlled Interface

Laptop With Eye Controlled Interface

Billed as a global first, a laptop allowing users to open files, play music and view pictures using just the power of their eyes was turning heads Wednesday at the CeBIT, the world’s top tech fair. .The otherwise unremarkable laptop integrates cutting-edge “eye tracking” technology by Swedish firm Tobii that follows the movement of the user’s eyes and allows him or her to operate menus and select icons.The prototype is also good for the environment as it recognizes when you are not looking at it and automatically goes into screen saver mode, saving energy, Tobii says. It restarts as soon as the user glances at the monitor again. The technology is already used in other areas, including in car safety where a sensor tracks eye movement to determine whether the driver is drowsy, and in helping paralyzed people operate everyday objects just with their eyes.

Microsoft Touch Screen Table for Casino

Microsoft Touch Screen Table for Casino

Today, touch screen technology widely used in information kiosks,tablets, equipment for trade automation, operator panels in the industry. As we know, the touch screen – a device that is a screen that responds to touch his finger, and serves to input / output of various kinds of information. Among the advantages of devices with such a system marked by the following: resistance to various external influences, dust and moisture protection, as well as a very correct and reliable operation. Of course, the touchscreen has its drawbacks that developers are active in the struggle. It should be noted the lack of tactile feedback, limited accuracy of positioning actions of the operator on the touch screen without a cursor, difficulty to the screen without special coatings for fingerprints, the complexity of working with different kinds of screens, for example, with a vertical screen, the user is forced to feel the weight of by virtue of this circumstance the duration of the data screens becomes episodic.
