Neural Holography bridging simulation and reality

Virtual and augmented reality headsets are designed to place wearers directly into other environments, worlds and experiences. While the technology is already popular among consumers for its immersive quality, there could be a future where the holographic displays look even more like real life. In their own pursuit of these better displays, the Stanford Computational Imaging Read more about Neural Holography bridging simulation and reality[…]

Touch-and-know with haptic feedback

Have you ever wondered whether the brains of right-handed people work differently from those of left-handers? Is it possible to distinguish between them by observing their brain activity in response to stimuli or tasks? These are important questions from the perspectives of both basic sciences and application-based fields such as brain-computer interfaces, rehabilitation robotics, and Read more about Touch-and-know with haptic feedback[…]

A new affordable and accessible haptic force feedback for human-computer interfaces

Imagine being able to build and use a robotic device without the need for expensive, specialist kit or skills. That is the vision that researchers from the University of Bristol have turned into reality, creating a lightweight, affordable and simple solution for everyday users. While multiple robotic arm devices already exist, most are heavy, expensive Read more about A new affordable and accessible haptic force feedback for human-computer interfaces[…]

A new state-of-the-art lens opens a path to a new type of virtual reality platform

Despite all the advances in consumer technology over the past decades, one component has remained frustratingly stagnant: the optical lens. Unlike electronic devices, which have gotten smaller and more efficient over the years, the design and underlying physics of today’s optical lenses haven’t changed much in about 3,000 years. This challenge has caused a bottleneck Read more about A new state-of-the-art lens opens a path to a new type of virtual reality platform[…]

Level Up Communication with Holographic Techniques

Hologram techniques are already used in our everyday life. A hologram sticker to prevent from counterfeiting money, Augmented Reality navigation projected in front mirror of a car to guide directions, and Virtual Reality game that allows a user to play in a virtual world with a feeling of live are just a few examples to Read more about Level Up Communication with Holographic Techniques[…]

HAPTIC Technology will make you sensing a hug from your friend through a video call

Sensing a hug from your friend through a video call with him/her may become a reality soon. A joint-research team consisted of scientists and engineers from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and Northwestern University in the United States has developed a skin-integrated virtual reality (VR) system, which can be controlled and powered wirelessly. The Read more about HAPTIC Technology will make you sensing a hug from your friend through a video call[…]

Highly immersive simulation visual, auditory and haptic feedback for sailors training

The Sailors file into the room, their weapons ready and their adrenaline flowing. They operate as a team in a seamless manner. Their mission: to secure an active-shooter situation and apprehend the holographic perpetrator. Commands are given to the shooter, within the augmented-reality (AR) headset. The shooter surrenders, and the Sailors’ mission is accomplished. The Read more about Highly immersive simulation visual, auditory and haptic feedback for sailors training[…]

Exposure therapy in virtual reality

Arachnophobia is the technical term for the fear of spiders. Approximately 3.5 to 6.1 percent of the population suffer from this phobia. Exposure therapy is the most common form of treatment. However, 60 to 80 percent of arachnophobes do not receive any therapy because of a lack of services. Others simply cannot bear the terror Read more about Exposure therapy in virtual reality[…]
