True 3D HD gaming coming soon from Sony

NanoGeekTech version 1.0 “Feed the Geek” is reporting the Sony has shown a spectacular demo of Wipeout HD being played in true 3D.

There is no confirmed word on the specifications of the 3D tech Sony is using. Some things can be presume, such as:

-Sony is more than likly running this 3D tech on a PS3.

-Your PS3 could be upgraded by a firmware update to display games in 3D?

-or part of Sony sick ass plans you will need one of their new HD 3D Display that will be debuting at CES 2009 and a PS3 to enjoy True Next Generation Gaming?

TV Studio in a Box

If you were impressed when manufacturers began putting home theaters in boxes, wait until you feast your eyes on NewTek’s TriCaster, which packs an entire live television production studio into a comparable cube of space. With minimal training, anyone who can operate a computer can use it to broadcast professional-quality live video over the internet or on television.

“It’s basically a live TV truck in a backpack,” said Philip Johnson, NewTek senior vice president of strategic development. “It’s being used by everyone from the NBA [Development League], to Fox Sports, to Fox News. John Dvorak uses one for Cranky Geeks, and Leo Laporte [and Tom Green] use it.”

It’s one small step for Tardigrada, and one giant leap for the animal kingdom:

Tardigrade aka "waterbear"

Better known as water bears, tardigrades are eight-legged invertebrates visible to the naked eye and found throughout the world, making them a biology class favorite.

They’re capable of halting their metabolisms during times of extreme privation, and can repair DNA damage caused by extraordinary doses of radiation — a phenomenon that’s piqued scientific curiosity and prompted researchers to shoot tardigrades into naked orbit around the Earth.

“The repair — how fast, how efficient, with or without errors — is different, but basic damage is the same,” said Rettberg, who helped design a tardigrade containment system attached to the Foton-M3 satellite, launched last September by a consortium of national space agencies.

Luke Arm with mind control and 3D-spatial interfaces

Inventor extraordinaire Dean Kamen spoke at D today about the latest developments in the Luke arm. Not that it wasn’t already impressive enough, but Kamen’s company, DEKA Research, has made even more amazing developments in the arm’s interface, complementing the early mechanical controls with spatial and neural interfaces. The shot above was taken of a man with transected nerves, which were interfaced directly to the arm, enabling him to delicately utilize numerous degrees of motion within hours of installation.

Japanese Exoskeleten: HAL Robotic Suit

* Robot Suit HAL is a cyborg-type robot that can expand and improve physical capability.

* When a person attempts to move, nerve signals are sent from the brain to the muscles via motoneuron, moving the musculoskeletal system as a consequence. At this moment, very weak biosignals can be detected on the surface of the skin. HAL catches these signals through a sensor attached on the skin of the wearer. Based on the signals obtained, the power unit is controlled to move the joint unitedly with the wearer’s muscle movement, enabling to support the wearer’s daily activities. This is what we call a ‘voluntary control system’ that provides movement interpreting the wearer’s intention from the biosignals in advance of the actual movement. Not only a ‘voluntary control system’ HAL has, but also a ‘robotic autonomous control system’ that provides human-like movement based on a robotic system which integrally work together with the ‘autonomous control system’. HAL is the world’s first cyborg-type robot controlled by this unique Hybrid System.

* HAL is expected to be applied in various fields such as rehabilitation support and physical training support in medical field, ADL support for disabled people, heavy labour support at factories, and rescue support at disaster sites, as well as in the entertainment field.

Ultra HD probably as early as 2011 in Japan

Japanese public broadcaster NHK (HQ pictured, left) will start experimental test transmissions of its spectacular Ultra-HD system (7680 x 4320 pixel) in 2011-12. Japan switches off its analogue terrestrial transmissions on July 24 2011, and NHK will hold onto some of the frequencies permitting expansion into next-generation HDTV.

Dr Kenkichi Tanioka, director general of NHK’s science and technical research laboratories, was outlining NHK’s timetable at a major presentation in Tokyo on May 22, saying that he anticipated further testing and development taking until 2016, and implementation following on. “The biggest problem is bandwidth,” he said, but praised the co-operation agreement now in place between the BBC, NAB, RAI and the EBU, which he described as a mutual approach to the evolving technology. He admitted that precisely predicting the future for Ultra-HD was especially difficult, “but we already make possible the impossible,” he stated.
