The benefits of virtual worlds can be used to help autistic children develop social skills beyond their anticipatedlevels, suggest early findings from new research funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). 21 October 2011 The benefits of virtual worlds can be used to help autistic children develop social skills beyond their anticipated levels, suggest early findings from new research funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Researchers on the Echoes Project have developed an interactive environment which uses multi-touch screen technology where virtual characters on the screener act to children’s actions in real time.
Designing with Vision, a system using eye-tracking technology, has been developed by researchers at The Open University and the University of Leeds to give computer-aided design users a more fluid human-machine interface. The software can identify and select shapes of interest automatically within a drawn sketch. The combination of eye-tracking technology and conventional mouse-based input allows initial design sketches to be manipulated and developed according to the user’s subconscious visual cues.
RFID chip next to a grain of rice. This chip contains a radio-frequency electromagnetic field coil that modulates an external magnetic field to transfer a coded identification number when queried by a reader device. This small type is incorporated in consumer products, and implanted in pets, for identification purposes. Radio-frequency identification ( RFID ) is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. Some tags require no battery and are powered and read at short ranges via magnetic fields ( electromagnetic induction ). Others use a local power source and emit radio waves ( electromagnetic radiation at radio frequencies).
