Sensing bionic limbs are here — and they work New research from Johns Hopkins University and DARPA shows how far sensing bionic limbs have come, proving that the technology is well on its way to offering real limb replacement. The breakthrough comes by way of patient interaction as much as advanced engineering, as work with real amputees shows how natural bionics sensing can really be. The researchers recount an episode in which they decided to trick the participant by stimulating two fingers, rather than just one — the patient immediately asked if someone was playing a trick on him, by changing the rules of the test. That convinced them that the sensing is both genuine and, more importantly, natural-feeling. The patient had responded to the novel input very quickly, without stopping to interpret the meaning of the signal in the brain. Double bionic arms, designed and installed by Johns Hopkins. Sensing is quickly becoming a limiting factor in bionic control.

Cicret Bracelet : un projet ambitieux mais peut-être trop fantaisiste ? Avec le bracelet Cicret, les concepteurs du « smartphone virtuel du futur » ont enflammé la Toile et les réseaux sociaux. Mais le projet ne pourrait peut-être jamais voir le jour ? Publié le 19 décembre 2014 - 9:29 par François Giraud Le smartphone du futur … ou pas ? Cicret est un bracelet connecté qui projette un hologramme de votre smartphone, via un pico-projecteur sur votre avant-bras. Un bracelet qui ne verra peut-être jamais le jour ? Une jeune entreprise française est en train de développer ce qui pourrait être le smartphone du futur. Nos confrères de 01Net se sont intéressés de près à ce projet et ils ont contacté Guillaume Pommier, l’un des créateurs du projet. Une vidéo a été publiée par la start-up française, mais cette vidéo est une vue d’artiste, elle n’existe donc pas. Ailleurs sur le web

Apple Pencil : 10 alternatives au stylet connecté de l'iPad Pro Apple a présenté son dernier objet connecté, l’iPad Pro muni d’un stylet Apple Pencil. Mais de nombreux concurrents ont déjà imaginé de tels produits, dont voici quelques expemples d’alternatives. Une semaine après sa naissance, on peut dire que le stylet connecté d’Apple aura déjà fait couler beaucoup d’encre… Si les fans de la pomme ont crié au sacrilège lorsque Apple leur a présenté un vulgaire ‘stylo’… certains professionnels se sont réjouis : oui, un stylet sert a de nombreuses fonctions ! Si l’Apple Pencil sera dans un premier temps réservé aux heureux propriétaire de l’iPad Pro, il existe déjà sur le marché de nombreux stylets pouvant vous accompagner au quotidien que vous soyez artiste ou homme d’affaires, à tous les prix. Voici un résumé de ces 10 produits dans un Bunkr, l’outil de présentation qui remplace PowerPoint : Ci-dessous vous trouverez une description courte et les prix de chaque produit, pour vous faire une idée : 2 – Adonit Jot Touch : 3 – Studio Neat Cosmonaut :

Coding Robin Open this page, allow it to access your webcam and see your face getting recognized by your browser using JavaScript and OpenCV, an "open source computer vision library". That's pretty cool! But recognizing faces in images is not something terribly new and exciting. Wouldn't it be great if we could tell OpenCV to recognize something of our choice, something that is not a face? That is totally possible! Here's the good news: we can generate our own cascade classifier for Haar features. But now for the best of news: keep on reading! The following instructions are heavily based on Naotoshi Seo's immensely helpful notes on OpenCV haartraining and make use of his scripts and resources he released under the MIT licencse. Let's get started The first thing you need to do is clone the repository on GitHub I made for this post. git clone You'll also need OpenCV on your system. If you're on OS X and use homebrew it's as easy as this: find .

Robotic surgery now used for sleep apnea in Austin clinic AUSTIN, Texas - Waking up all night, snoring, tiredness in the morning, being easily distracted and crankiness are all signs that you have sleep apnea. While you may think it’s just a matter of insomnia, you’re wrong. It’s actually a physical condition that can cause more than a bad mood. Dr. Matt Meigs, an ear, nose and throat physician at the Austin Regional Clinic said sleep apnea and lack of sleep are contributing factors in many deaths. "High risk of car accidents, high risk of stroke, high risk of heart attack, high risk of high blood pressure and there's evidence that it affects blood sugar metabolism," he said. That means it also can cause you to gain weight. In the last five years, more and more surgeries are being performed by robots, and the latest one to show promise is the procedure for sleep apnea. "In the case of the robot, we can get to the base of the tongue, which is the area that has been typically neglected in sleep apnea surgery,” Meigs said.

cicret smart bracelet 2 Soli : Google veut vous transformer en interface pour objets connectés Passée presque inaperçue dans le flot d’annonces de la Google I/O 2015, l’annonce du projet Soli de Google pourrait aboutir à la constitution d’une interface de commande des objets connectés, directement par votre corps. On connait le potentiel des équipes de R&D de Google, aussi bien chez Google X (lunettes connectées Google Glass, lentilles connectées, drones de livraison, etc) que dans les autres services du géant de la recherche. En matière d’objets connectés, Google a montré qu’il comptait occuper tous les segments du marché, notamment en proposant des déclinaisons d’Android adaptées à chaque catégorie d’objets : Android Auto dans les véhicules, Android TV pour les télévisions intelligentes, Brillo pour les objets les moins gourmands ou même Android Wear pour toutes les montres connectées. Mais le travaille de Google ne se limite pas à interconnecter ces appareils électronique, la firme de Mountain View compte également changer la manière dont on les pilote. Via

'Ninja Run' May Be the Craziest VR Locomotion Technique Yet This is ‘Ninja Run VR’, and its yet another take on the ever present problem of user locomotion in VR experiences. But, as crazy as the concept looks, there may be some method to its madness. The question of how best to allow users of VR apps, games and experiences to move around a virtual space is still a hot topic among players and developers. Now, a developer has come up with a new take on the problem, one that on the surface may well look, well, a little “batshit crazy”. “In many popular anime and cartoons, characters depicted to be moving very fast are often illustrated with their hands and arms trailing their torso in the direction they are moving,” Hall tells us, “Even though is is unrealistic, it does induce the notion that the person has a super power to move very fast.” The developer has begun to flesh out his concepts too, this has resulted in a demo experience which adopts the technique.

New Tech Network Plymouth robotic-surgery company snapped up by UK orthopedic giant - StarTribune.com London-based orthopedics devicemaker Smith & Nephew is jumping into the growing field of robotically assisted knee surgery by acquiring Plymouth’s Blue Belt Technologies for $275 million. The debt-funded deal is expected to close by year’s end. Blue Belt, which had revenue of $19 million in 2015, makes a computer-assisted surgical drill called the Navio that is approved for partial-knee replacement surgeries. The computer allows a doctor to treat a partly arthritic knee by precisely drilling out a compartment in a patient’s lower femur bone to make space for a new metal implant. Blue Belt is already working to get approvals for other surgeries involving knees and hips, which could greatly increase the market for the device. Other surgical robots are already on the market. Blue Belt’s Navio system has no robotic arm. The technology was spun out of Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute, and many of the company’s staff remain in Pittsburgh near the university.

Cicret, la start-up française qui a inventé le smartphone virtuel La petite entreprise a séduit un investisseur indien… grâce à une vidéo postée sur le compte Facebook par un illustre inconnu. L'histoire de Cicret est pour le moins rocambolesque. Elle fleure bon le conte de fée moderne. L'affaire commence avec un bracelet connecté pas tout à fait comme les autres. Pour financer son projet, Pascal Pommier, fondateur de Cicret, décide de lancer une campagne de financement participatif sur Indigogo en septembre. Le miracle arrive quelques semaines plus tard. Parallèlement Cicret continue de faire évoluer son application. La vidéo de présentation du bracelet Cicret:
