The yet to be actually verified graphics technology Unlimited Detail uses point-cloud construction to create incredibly detailed virtual environments by building the environment from a infinite number of 3-D virtual atoms much in the same way as the physical world.
While new robotic technologies have created robots that can sing, order scones, and pretend to be babies, the Robots For Humanity project has been focusing on developing robots that can help with more simple, and necessary tasks- such as allowing a paraplegic man to shave himself for the first time in 10 years.
The SWITL robotic hand was originally designed to be able to pick up and relocate sol-gel materials, such as bakery production line materials, without changing their shape in any way, and is now being used to package meats and other difficult to handle sol-gel products.
As part of a project to help the visually impaired navigate more effectively indoors, engineers from the University of Konstanz in Germany have wired a helmet-mounted Kinect sensor to a computer in a backpack, a vibrating belt, and a bluetooth headset that provides verbal feedback.
The brain-computer interface developed by a team of researchers from École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne uses statistical analysis to learn to read the user's mental intentions, allowing the person to mentally relax and execute secondary tasks while controlling the unit.
