VR 'Chinook' will help train medics in UK Armed Forces

VR 'Chinook' will help train medics in UK Armed Forces
A simulator of a Chinook helicopter, bringing together VR and an inflatable enclosure, has been conceived to help to support the future training of the UK Armed Forces' Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT). The University of Birmingham's Human Interface Technology (HIT) team designed the high-tech solution to help medical personnel to train for battlefield incidents that require emergency medicine, often administered in the back of the helicopter.

3D VR Colonoscopy allows better colorectal cancer prevention

3D VR Colonoscopy allows better colorectal cancer prevention
At UCSF's 3D Imaging Lab, radiologist Judy Yee, MD, pulls up an image that looks more like a birthday party balloon animal than a patient's colon: a vibrant, color-segmented tube, torqued and twisted in on itself. Created from thin slices of a CT scan, the image appears in 3D on the flat screen. It can even morph into video "fly-through" views, enhancing polyps, lesions, and other precancerous anomalies.

AR enables helicopter flight in degraded visual environments

AR enables helicopter flight in degraded visual environments
Fog, blizzards, gusts of wind – poor weather can often make the operation of rescue helicopters a highly risky business, and sometimes even impossible. A helmet-mounted display, developed by researchers at the TUM, may in the future be able to help pilots detect hazards at an early stage, even when their visibility is severely impaired: the information required to do this is created in an on-board computer and imported into digital eye glasses. A study has shown that this AR improves the performance of pilots.

VR helps advance physical therapy

VR helps advance physical therapy
Northeastern's Danielle Levac develops video games to make physical therapy more fun, motivating, and rewarding for patients—especially for children with movement impairments, such as those with cerebral palsy. Levac, professor of physical therapy in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, invited a group of fifth-grade students from Boston's Ellis Mendell Elementary School to visit her lab last week.

World's smallest 3D camera brings AR to a smartphone

World's smallest 3D camera brings AR to a smartphone
Lenovo is the first manufacturer worldwide to bring Tango technology to a consumer product. Google's technology that allows devices to understand spatial information is an exclusive feature in the PHAB2 Pro smartphone launched today. Based on the Time-of-Flight principle, the REAL3 image sensor chip from Infineon equips the smartphone with a 3-dimensional perception of the surroundings in real-time.

AR will aid the visibility of firefighters

AR will aid the visibility of firefighters
An EPFL team is working on a smart visor that, combined with a thermal imaging camera, will help firefighters see what's around them in real time, even at night and in smoke. All firefighters, volunteers and professionals alike, have to learn how to deal with flames. But fire is not the only risk they face. Toxic, impenetrable smoke and darkness add to the dangers and slow the firefighters' progress.
