Six Degrees Space sub-millisecond Optical rotation sensor for Nausea-free VR/AR/MR

Posted by Charbax – July 21, 2017

Six Degrees Space high speed tracking technology has the potential to eliminate the user nausea that is currently one of the biggest barriers to widespread market penetration of VR/AR/MR technology. They are currently developing a revolutionary, high-accuracy, high-speed, inside-out optical rotation sensor for VR applications, working towards a full 6dof product. Locking onto room illumination features, the sensor provides a drift-free bearing output with true sub-millisecond latency. In addition to VR/AR application, the sensor can be adapted to be used in any application that requires a high speed response based on an existing light source.

Candlelight OLED (Blue hazardous free) by the National TsingHua University

Posted by Charbax – July 19, 2017

Deepak Kumar Dubey, Research scholar at the Nano Organic Photonics Devices Lab, Dept. of Material Science & Engineering at the National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan presents their Blue hazardous free Candle light-style organic light emitting diode based lamp. Increasing studies report that blue light to possess a potential hazard to the retina of human eyes, secretion of melatonin and artworks. To devise a human and artwork-friendly light source and to also trigger a "Lighting Renaissance", they demonstrate here how to enable a quality, blue-hazard free general lighting source on basis of low color-temperature organic light emitting diodes. This blue-hazard free candlelight OLED desk lamp (2,000K) is made by the collaborative effort of National Tsing Hua University and WiseChip Semiconductor Inc. It is presumably 20 times safer in terms of retinal protection and 10 times better for melatonin generation as compared with the 5000K blue light-enriched white light. It is friendly to human eyes, physiologies, artifacts, ecosystems, the environment, and night skies, besides being free from UV, flickering and glare etc.

Doppel Rhythmic pulse wrist wearable to stay calm and focused

Posted by Charbax – July 8, 2017

Doppel creates a rhythmic pulse that you feel on the inside of your wrist as a heartbeat like vibration. We do not simply perceive this rhythm, but we entrain to it - a faster rhythm makes us feel more alert, and a slower one calms us down. The effect is similar to listening to upbeat or slower music. But with doppel, there’s no noise and no distraction. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
