An eye-tracking VR system lets administrators see what parts of an image sex offenders are...

People who have been charged with sexual offenses typically have to undergo psychotherapy in order to control their deviant impulses. According to researchers at the University of Montreal, virtual reality may provide the best method of determining if that therapy has indeed worked – before those offenders are released back into the public.  Read More

Don't Move sends a Bluetooth alert when the item that it's resting on is moved Don't like the thought of people sampling your lunch, "borrowing" your pens, or making unauthorized withdrawals from your cookie jar? Well, then you may like Don't Move. It's a small device that's essentially an electronic version of the "Do Not Touch" sticker, except it also tells on people who ignore it.  Read More

Chisel allows small computational errors to be made, in the name of saving power (Image: S...

You may have heard the expression, "Work smarter, not harder." When applied to humans, it means (partially) that we should do our best work on the tasks that are the most important, instead of wasting time and effort by going all out on every task. Well, that principle is now also being applied to computers. Using MIT's new Chisel system, computers are saving power by delegating less-critical tasks to less-dependable lower-energy hardware. This means mistakes may be made on those tasks, but that's OK.  Read More

If you're perched on a ladder or are dangling in a harness, then twisting around to grab something from the back of your tool belt can be rather challenging. That's why New York firefighter/photographer Chris Landano created the TrakBelt360. It's a tool belt that lets you rotate pouches or tool holsters all the way around it, so that the item you need ends up right at the front.  Read More

The insoles use vibrations to help their wearers detect tactile stimuli in the soles of th...

Falls are the leading cause of death by injury amongst seniors, and those falls are in turn typically caused by poor balance or an irregular gait. Taking things back yet another step, problems with balance and gait are often caused by diminished sensation in the feet. Now, however, a new study indicates that subtly-buzzing insoles may help seniors regain some of that lost sensation, and thus be less likely to fall down.  Read More

Visteon's HMeye 'cockpit of the future'

We've already seen eye-tracking systems being used to control things like laptops and TVs, but ... cars? Well, the Visteon Corporation isn't suggesting that we use our eyes to steer our cars. At least, not yet. Its HMeye cockpit concept, however, is designed to show how such technology could be used to help drivers keep their attention on the road.  Read More

HALOsonic constantly adapts to the changes in vibrations coming from the tires against the...

As automakers attempt to make vehicles more energy-efficient, they're increasingly turning to lighter building materials. While doing so may indeed result in lightweight cars, these materials generally lack the sound-damping qualities of their heavier counterparts. That's why Harman and Lotus Engineering have developed the HALOsonic system, which cancels out road noise by making noise of its own.  Read More

The Velov's four panels can be put on or taken off, depending on how cold it is outside Although fair-weather cyclists may consistently appreciate the ventilation openings in most bike helmets, riders who brave the cold aren't always so keen on them. One solution is to cover those holes using a shower cap-like helmet cover, but Italy's Limar offers an alternative. Its Velov helmet has air flow-blocking panels that can be installed or removed as needed.  Read More

The HaptoMime uses ultrasound to make users feel like they're touching a display that isn'...

Touchscreen interfaces may make our lives easier, but the things do tend to get smeared with finger oil and whatnot, plus they're notorious for spreading germs. That's why a team of researchers at the University of Tokyo, led by assistant professor Yasuaki Monnai, have developed the HaptoMime. It's an ATM-like interface that lets the user feel like they're touching a glass screen, when in fact they're touching nothing at all.  Read More

The Kodak PixPro SP360, with some of its optional extras

We've recently been hearing a lot about systems that record 360-degree video, although they mostly appear to be either professional setups or offerings from relatively small startup companies. That changed yesterday, however, when JK Imaging announced the new Kodak PixPro SP360 actioncam.  Read More
