To unlock the full potential of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experiences, the technology needs to work anywhere, adapting to the spaces where people live and how they move within those real-world environments. When we developed Oculus Quest, the first all-in-one, completely wire-free VR gaming system, we knew we needed positional tracking that was precise, accurate, and available in real time — within the confines of a standalone headset, meaning it had to be compact and energy efficient.…

Nylon as a building block for transparent electronic devices? Scientists develop solution processable ferroelectric nylons — ScienceDaily

As the microelectronic industry is now shifting toward wearable electronic gadgets and electronic (e-)textiles, the comprising electronic materials, such as ferroelectrics, should be integrated with our clothes. Nylons, a family of synthetic polymers, were first introduced in the 1920s’ for women’s stockings and are nowadays among the most widely used synthetic fibers in textiles. They consist of a long chain of repeated molecular units, i.e. polymers, where each repeat unit contains a specific arrangement of hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen with…

Injuries the leading cause of death among children worldwide, expert says — ScienceDaily

Injuries have overtaken infectious disease as the leading cause of death for children worldwide, and psychologists have the research needed to help predict and prevent deadly childhood mishaps, according to a presentation at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association. “Many different factors contribute to unintentional injuries, so if we are able to stop just one of these risk factors, the injury could be prevented,” said David C. Schwebel, PhD, of the University of Alabama Birmingham, who presented at…

Should Engineers Get Their Fingernails Dirty?

Up the road from me in Austin, Texas, it turns out that Apple has been building Mac Pros, a desktop model, in a Flextronics manufacturing plant since at least 2013.  But a recent news item in the Austin American-Statesman says that the company will soon shut down its manufacturing activity of Mac Pros here in Texas and move it to China.  However, Apple is moving ahead with plans to open a new billion-dollar campus in Austin, which will increase the…

Studying chromosomes: Mizzou Engineering develops 3D modeling tool

Science has already allowed us to map the human genome – one of the biggest scientific achievements of our lifetimes. But to really take that achievement to the next level and use it to improve precision health and medicine, we need accurate 3D models to study chromosomes in great detail. A Mizzou Engineering researcher and his team have designed a tool to do just that. Jianlin Cheng, MU William and Nancy Thompson Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, and…

Carbon nanotube films enable method to recycle waste heat — ScienceDaily

The ever-more-humble carbon nanotube may be just the device to make solar panels — and anything else that loses energy through heat — far more efficient. Rice University scientists are designing arrays of aligned single-wall carbon nanotubes to channel mid-infrared radiation (aka heat) and greatly raise the efficiency of solar energy systems. Gururaj Naik and Junichiro Kono of Rice’s Brown School of Engineering introduced their technology in ACS Photonics. Their invention is a hyperbolic thermal emitter that can absorb intense…
