A journey through the history of football technology

A journey through the history of football technology
Brits have long been celebrated as the inventors of modern day football, although some would argue that its origins can be traced as far back as ancient China. Regardless, it’s fair to say that football has travelled bounds ever since the early days of a ball and a group of players on a field. By: Spencer Buchan, Managing Director of AVC Immedia.

Augmented reality app may aid patients with Parkinson’s

Augmented reality app may aid patients with Parkinson’s
It’s appropriate that during Parkinson’s Awareness Month, a team of Rice University seniors will show how augmented reality may help patients with the disease. Six Rice engineering students have designed an iPhone app to help patients overcome a symptom known as “freezing,” in which the legs temporarily refuse to follow the brain’s command to lift and move forward.

Haptics in Ready Player One: an analysis of fact and fiction

Haptics in Ready Player One: an analysis of fact and fiction
The release of Ready Player One this past weekend is a significant moment for the Virtual Reality industry. Ernest Cline's bestselling science fiction adventure will achieve a Spielberg-fueled launch to new heights of popular culture fame. It describes a world where living in the virtual reality of the OASIS becomes preferable to living within a dystopian future society riddled by war and energy crises.

The benefits of exploring the virtual world

The benefits of exploring the virtual world
Since its inception in 1957, VR has been used for a multitude of purposes, from computer gaming and music videos to training simulations and product prototyping. Manufacturing is the latest industry to take the plunge as it incorporates virtual worlds into building information modelling (BIM). Glyn Shawcross, Group Design Manager at Boulting Group, explains the practicalities and benefits of VR and BIM.

A visual information system for the hearing-impaired

A visual information system for the hearing-impaired
Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a visual communication system for hearing-impaired employees in logistics. Data glasses display information relevant to the work process in the employee's field of view. AR, which unites the real and virtual worlds, has long been a research focus area at the TUM Chair for Materials Handling, Material Flow, Logistics, says Prof. Willibald Günthner.

From something you can feel to something that feels right

From something you can feel to something that feels right
Helped by EU funding, Ultrahaptics is the first and only company in the world to develop a device which allows users to feel sensations with their bare hands while interacting in mid-air with a touchless sensing system. This frontier heralds a fundamentally new relationship with technology. The EU-funded UTOUCH project has enabled the development of ultrasonic speakers which project Invisible forces into the air, capable of being felt on human skin at a distance of up to one metre.
