Omni: Move Naturally in Your Favorite Game by Virtuix. We are in the midst of a revolution in virtual reality.

Omni: Move Naturally in Your Favorite Game by Virtuix

The release of affordable head mounted displays and low-cost sensor technologies has brought the decades-old dream of true virtual reality closer than ever, but there’s still one more piece to the puzzle: the Omni. The Omni takes virtual reality to the next level— allowing anyone to stand up and traverse virtual worlds with the natural use of their own feet. The Omni is the first virtual reality interface for moving freely and naturally in your favorite game. Moving naturally in virtual reality creates an unprecedented sense of immersion that cannot be experienced sitting down.

That's why we developed the Omni. Walk, run, jump, crouch: the Omni will keep you on your feet and in motion. The Omni will free gamers from passive, seated gameplay, unleashing the full potential of virtual reality gaming with the Oculus Rift and future head mounted displays. The Omni comes with Omni shoes, support belt, and tracking hardware and software. Stealth camera takes pictures virtually in the dark. From Ref. 1 A multi-step process removes noise from a laser scan made by detecting a single photon for each pixel, producing a three-dimensional image.

Talk about taking a dim view of things. Researchers have obtained ultrasharp images of weakly illuminated objects using a bare minimum of photons: mathematically stitching together information from single particles of light recorded by each pixel of a solid-state detector. The achievement is likely to support studies of fragile biological materials, such as the human eye, that could be damaged or destroyed by higher levels of illumination.

For $1100, you can get your hands on the thinnest, lightest A4-sized e-ink tablet. The Digital Paper supports stylus input, has built-in WiFi, and lasts up to three weeks on a single charge. The key technology here is the new Mobius display from E Ink, which is very light and highly flexible — though it isn’t clear how much of that flexibility made it into the final Digital Paper product.

A battery that uses nanotechnology to charge your smartphone in 30 seconds may sound like something out of a sci-fi movie but an Israeli startup claims to have created just that.

Battery Prototype Recharges Smartphones in 30 Seconds

StoreDot unveiled its battery charging prototype Monday at Microsoft's Think Next conference in Tel Aviv. StoreDot's prototype is able to completely recharge a smartphone battery from 0%-100% in just 30 seconds. It relies on bio-organic nanodots, tiny conductive crystals that help enable rapid charging. Currently, the device is closer in size to a laptop charger than a smartphone charger, but the company says it expects the final product will be about the size of a typical smartphone battery.

"BOTANICUS INTERACTICUS": Interactive Plant Technology. Video reveals how to heat your home using just TEALIGHTS and FLOWERPOTS - and it costs just 8p a day. YouTube user Dylan Winter created the DIY heater for his boat and officeHe used tealights that cost £1 for a pack of 100 plus two basic ceramic potsThe process uses the theory of convection heat transfer to warm a roomTealights burn for around four hours in the morning and afternoon By Victoria Woollaston Published: 12:46 GMT, 8 November 2013 | Updated: 17:27 GMT, 22 November 2013 Rising energy bills are a political hot topic at the moment but one YouTube user has devised a way of heating a room for just 8p a day.

Journalist and boat owner Dylan Winter created his DIY heater using tealights placed inside a bread tin and covered with two ceramic flowerpots. The system uses the scientific principles of convection heat transfer and Winter claims it can heat his home for around eight hours a day. Innovative Shower Reduces Water Usage by 90%, Electricity by 80% A typical 10-minute shower can use 150 liters of water and requires energy to keep all of that incoming water hot.
