Human Machine Interfaces That Will Bring About Extended Reality (XR)
Throughout history, our idea of reality had been based on feedback from our natural senses about the state of the physical world around us. However, with giant leaps in the fields of digital reality and spatial perception, we can now experience so much more than what is physically there.
Intel’s Loihi CPU: A Neuromorphic Chip Modelled on the Human Brain
Neuroscience, with its huge volume of complex interactions, is a field that offers an enormous amount of insight for the potential of hardware architectures and algorithms. The behaviors and properties of biological neurons have, to date, proven difficult to model let alone replicate. However, while the vast majority of biological neuron interactions will remain a mystery for some time, simplified abstractions of neural networks are now possible.
The Components That Make Smart Clothes Possible
Smart clothing may already be here, but it will take a while before the average person is reading their heart rate statistics through the very fibres of their jumper. For now, let’s discuss the components and engineering considerations involved that, once mastered, could eventually commercialise this latest breakthrough in wearable tech.
Creative Air Purification Solutions for Cleaning up Polluted Cities
Over 90% of the population is breathing in air that exceeds the World Health Organization’s standards, the authority says. But at least every smoggy, CO2-filled cloud has a silver lining: there are many engineers out there bringing breakthrough air cleaners to the urban landscape.
Hardware Prepped to Meet Europe’s 5G Implementation
5G has been hailed as tech's next big leap forward and, if you pay attention to all the noise and claims from telecoms companies, you certainly wouldn't be ridiculed for believing so. Despite everything that is being said, is Europe ready for 5G's implementation?
