Layers made as ultrastable glasses improve device performance — ScienceDaily

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) truly have matured enough to allow for first commercial products in form of small and large displays. In order to compete in further markets and even open new possibilities (automotive lighting, head-mounted-displays, micro displays, etc.), OLEDs need to see further improvements in device lifetime while operating at their best possible efficiency. Currently, intrinsic performance progress is solely driven by material development. Now researchers from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Technische Universität Dresden demonstrate the possibility…

The First 3D Modeling Software in the History – 3D SketchPad

The third dimension was popularized by Ivan Sutherland and David Evans, who are in the 1960s opened the department of vector and raster graphics and created software where it was possible to study space in all its directions. Under the aegis of these scientists, the student Ed Kathmullah created the first 3D mock-up, it was the image of his own hand. Developing further, the system administrators, created their own company, where they actively used their product – the SketchPad software…

Engineers Making Movies (AKA Open Source Test Content)

by Andy Schuler and Matthew Donato If you’re a die-hard Netflix fan, you may have already stumbled onto the dark and brooding story of a timeless struggle between man and nature, water and fountain, ball and tether known much more plainly as Example Short. In the good old days of 2010, Example Short served us well to evaluate our streaming profiles with maximum resolutions of 1920×1080, frame rates of 30 frames per second (fps) and colorimetry within the BT. 709…

Speeding up micro-CT scanning

Micro-computed tomography or “micro-CT” is X-ray imaging in 3-D, by the same method used in hospital CT (or “CAT”) scans, but on a small scale with massively increased resolution. It enables scientists and engineers to see inside structures and reveal hidden secrets. Micro-CT imaging is opening up a world of opportunities across industries. Now the EUREKA funded project Xamflow has developed an innovative software application that makes micro-CT examinations more efficient and less labour intensive than before. “Micro-CT scanning…

React 360 replaces React VR for streamlined development focus | Engineering Blog | Facebook Code

This post originally appeared on the Oculus Developers Blog. When we released React VR in April of 2017, our goal was to create a web-based framework that would enable developers to easily add interactivity to immersive content in order to create engaging experiences. Because the content can be viewed in any WebVR-enabled browser, developers can potentially reach billions of mobile and PC users, in addition to early adopters of VR headsets. Over the past year, developers have used React VR…
