Multifunctional e-glasses monitor health, protect eyes, control video games — ScienceDaily

Fitness tracker bracelets and watches provide useful information, such as step count and heart rate, but they usually can’t provide more detailed data about the wearer’s health. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces have developed smart electronic glasses (e-glasses) that not only monitor a person’s brain waves and body movements, but also can function as sunglasses and allow users to control a video game with eye motions. Devices that measure electrical signals from the brain (electroencephalogram; EEG)…

Create Your Personalized TV Guide with Friendspire

The quarantine doesn’t seem to be anywhere near its end and it is obvious that you have already watched ‘Friends’ and ‘The Office’ for the millionth time by now. While classics like these never leave your side, you do need a change from something new every now then. But how will you know whether that new show on werewolves is as good as Teen Wolf or whether the new season of Money Heist won’t be a waste of time? While…

Tanium’s endpoint security meets Cloudflare for Teams

When Cloudflare first launched in 2010, network security still relied heavily on physical security. To connect to a private network, most users simply needed to be inside the walls of the office. Once on that network, users could connect to corporate applications and infrastructure. When users left the office, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) became a bandaid to let users connect back into that office network. Administrators poked holes in their firewall that allowed traffic to route back through headquarters.…

Can copying your friends help you achieve your goals? — ScienceDaily

Consumers often struggle to achieve self-set life improvement goals, but what if deliberately emulating the successful strategies used by their friends could help them? A new paper published in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research shows that encouraging people to find and mimic exercise strategies used by their friends increases the amount of time people spent exercising relative to receiving an exercise strategy passively. In the study, Katie S. Mehr, Amanda E. Geiser, Katherine L. Milkman, and Angela…

Engineers develop near-zero emissions engine technology

Southwest Research Institute engineers have developed the next generation of clean diesel engine technology to reduce hazardous nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide emissions while minimizing fuel consumption. Working with regulatory agencies, vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, SwRI combined engine modifications with integrated aftertreatment technology and control strategies to reach near-zero emissions levels. SwRI developed the technology for the California Air Resources Board (CARB), a state organization charged with combatting air pollution. “Through the continued efforts of a multidisciplinary team, SwRI…

Past Participants Tout Benefits of REU Program

REU Program students study consumer networking. Students from across the country will spend the next 10 weeks developing consumer networking skills. It’s part of a Research Experiences for Undergraduates, or REU, program at Mizzou Engineering funded by the National Science Foundation. And for some, it’s life changing. The REU program gives undergraduates an opportunity to conduct research on fundamental topics in consumer networking. Students work with multi-disciplinary experts. At the end of the program, they develop an innovative prototype that relates…

NIST Refining Laser-Power Measurement Over 20 Orders of Magnitude

Engineers know that measuring dc or low-frequency electrical power is fairly straightforward, but such measurements become more difficult as you go up the spectrum into the tens-of-gigahertz range. Still, that’s only the beginning of the truly challenging part of the spectrum range. Laser-sourced optical power is even more difficult to measure, due to its wide spectrum (IR, visible, and UV), sensors with limited spectral sensitivity, and wide dynamic range. Nonetheless, as optical components and optoelectronics become increasingly critical parts of…

NIST formula may help 5G wireless networks efficiently share communications frequencies

NIST engineer Jason Coder makes mathematical calculations for a machine learning formula that may help 5G and other wireless networks select and share communications frequencies efficiently. Credit: NIST Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a mathematical formula that, computer simulations suggest, could help 5G and other wireless networks select and share communications frequencies about 5,000 times more efficiently than trial-and-error methods. The novel formula is a form of machine learning that selects a wireless…

DEPC Recognized by National Academy of Inventors

Tojan Rahhal (left), Assistant Dean for Inclusive Excellence and Strategic Initiatives, poses with members of the Engineering Diversity Collaborative Evonne Weeden, Brooke Flynn, Kate Clemens, Victoria Sanchez, Jacqueline Miller, Andrew Guardia and Samantha Sample, along with Hilary Mueller, Director of the Office Diversity and Outreach Initiatives, during a break at the Diverse Engineering Professionals Conference last fall. The College of Engineering established the Diverse Engineering Professionals Conference (DEPC) in 2017 to recognize diversity organizations and diverse students while promoting the…

Test your home network performance

With many people being forced to work from home, there’s increased load on consumer ISPs. You may be asking yourself: how well is my ISP performing with even more traffic? Today we’re announcing the general availability of speed.cloudflare.com, a way to gain meaningful insights into exactly how well your network is performing. We’ve seen a massive shift from users accessing the Internet from busy office districts to spread out urban areas. Although there are a slew of speed testing tools…
