DeepFrame is a 64-inch screen that allows you to interact with characters and objects And you thought the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park were scary   AR is meant to change the way we see entertainment, and while there’s been some moderate success with things like Pokemon Go, it’s not being used to its full potential and isn’t really immersive. Realfiction wants to take another approach to AR with its 64-inch screen called DeepFrame. It takes the AR experience we’ve pr ...
US Ski team member Laurenne Ross training using the STRIVR VR platform. (Image credit: U.S. Ski and Snowboard)   I love the Olympics. The Olympics is packed with technology. Over the 2018 Winter Games, I plan to cover a lot of the latest innovations in the games.   Skiers and snowboarders are hitting the games before heading off to the games as athletes are turning to VR for training before competing in the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Typically, skiers and snowbo ...
Batemika Measurement Solutions was able to improve the accuracy of its UT-ONE family of thermometer readouts by implementing a VHP101T Hermetically-Sealed Bulk Metal® Foil resistor as the internal reference resistor. Long-term drifts were improved from over 20 ppm per year to less than 5 ppm per year.   Case study link:  http://www.vishaypg.com/foil-resistors/case-studies/study/batemika_1/ ...
(Image credit: Pixabay)   Stanford University’s SQuAD (Stanford Question Answering Dataset) is a reading and comprehension test based on 500+ Wikipedia articles and tests the comprehension of words where the answer to every question is a segment of text that corresponds to the particular reading passage. It offers 100,000+ question/answer pairs, in other words- it’s a tough test, even for the best of us but not so much for artificial intelligence.   A recent Bloomberg arti ...
In collaboration with a few researchers from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Microsoft created a software that will allow scientists to do the most precise gene editing possible. The technology has been inspired by nature itself.   At times it feels as if the world is introduced only new technology to play with or communicate with. The truth is that advances in technology are also directed toward the survival of the human race. While a lot of life-threatening diseases are easily tr ...

Magic Leap reveals its AR headset which aims to open up new building experiences for users and creators alike. This headset looks like something out of Riddick or Mad Max, kind of cool. (Photo via Magic Leap)   If you’ve been following Magic Leap, you know it’s been a long, somewhat mysterious journey. For those not in the know, Magic Leap was founded in 2011, but not much else was known about the company. Regardless, they’ve received quite a bit of funding from the likes ...
EPFL scientists developed the sensory-enhanced prosthetic hand to give amputees their sense of feeling back. (Image credit: BBC video screenshot)   Back in 1993, Almerina Mascarello lost her left hand in an accident at a steel factory, 25 years later; the 62-year old mother of two has been outfitted with a bionic replacement that also gives back her sense touch thanks to an international team of scientists from Italy, Switzerland, and Germany. In an interview given to the BBC, Mrs. Mascare ...
Peter, Jon and I are building a Programmable Electronic Load. In this series of blogs I'm building a LabVIEW library of reusable components     In this first article: Initialising the instrument   LabVIEW has a set of blocks to build flows with serial communication devices. Those blocks work well with our instrument. However, inspired by the example for the Rigol DP8xxx family, I'm going to create more abstract blocks. You can then use these in a LabVIEW flow. To show the ...

Appa iMeter 5

Posted by kk99 Jan 6, 2018
Here is short presentation of battery replacement in my small portable digital multimeter: Appa iMeter 5. I really like this portable digital multimeter. Only one cons of this multimeter is that no True RMS functionality and small range of capacitor measurements. Please share what is your favorite digitial multimeter in comment ? ...
A new wireless microphone on the market claims to provide better sound than anything else on the market. But it might not be for everyone. (Image via Mikme)   Simple ideas executed elegantly are a great inspiration. I think this could be made a bit cheaper... but first, let me explain what it is.   One industry that is always targeted by creators of new technology is the entertainment industry. The way artists record and present their arts has changed so much that it has opened the d ...
The HRU standard resistors (10 ohm and 100 ohm) will be formally used on the Watt Balance system for mass standard which has been developed by NIST (US) and NRC (Canada) as next generation’s mass standard unit from 2018. At Watt Balance system, current (A) and voltage (V) are extremely important as these enable researchers to determine the mass of an object indirectly via two measuring modes: the strength of the magnetic field, and the current running through a coil of wire. For this appli ...
