Snap Inc., the Snapchat-maker's new name, hasn't said exactly when Spectacles will go on sale but we know they will be priced at $129.99. 

While that's still a decent chunk of change, as far as wearables go, it's pretty reasonable. It's less than many wrist-worn wearables like Fitbit's $149.95 Charge 2 tracker, and significantly cheaper than other glasses products. When Google Glass launched in 2013, it cost $1,500. 

Granted, Spectacles isn't an augmented reality product, as many thought it might be, and the fact that it's primarily a camera helps keep the cost down. But, with wireless charging along with Wi-FI and Bluetooth connectivity, it's not exactly light on features either. 

The right price point could make all the difference for Snap Inc., which is just starting to branch out into products beyond its flagship app. Given that the app is most popular among young users, making Spectacles too expensive could prove to be disastrous for the company.

And while it's still too early to tell if Spectacles will be a success for the company, at least we know the cost won't be holding many people back.

Blutuntersuchung weist Bauchspeicheldrüsenkrebs nach | #Research #Cancer

Blutuntersuchung weist Bauchspeicheldrüsenkrebs nach | #Research #Cancer | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Tumore der Bauspeicheldrüse durch Blutuntersuchung früh erkennen

Die Erkenntnisse der Ulmer Wissenschaftler könnten ein erster Schritt sein, um in Zukunft z.B. eine maligne Entartung solcher IPMN hin zu Bauspeicheldrüsentumoren durch Blutuntersuchungen im Rahmen von Screenings früh zu erkennen. Dazu ist aber weitere Forschung nötig. „Jetzt gilt es herauszufinden, ob das Blut uns in Kombination mit anderen Veränderungen der Bauchspeicheldrüse auch verrät, wann aus Vorstufen tatsächlich ein Tumor entsteht – und wann nicht“, erläutert Oberarzt Prof. Dr. Alexander Kleger, der zweite Seniorautor der Studie. Unterstützt wurden die Ulmer Wissenschaftler von Kollegen am Universitätsklinikum Heidelberg und der Uniklinik RWTH Aachen. „Eine bessere Diagnostik ist besonders in der Krebsmedizin ein entscheidender Faktor, um Therapien rechtzeitig einleiten zu können. Hier geht die Gruppe um Herrn Professor Seufferlein neue Wege“, freut sich der Leitende Ärztliche Direktor des Ulmer Universitätsklinikums, Prof. Dr. Udo X. Kaisers.

Die Bauchspeicheldrüse reguliert u.a. Verdauungsprozesse und den Blutzuckerspiegel. Die Intraduktal papillär muszinöse Neoplasie (IPMN) ist der häufigste zystische Bauspeicheldrüsentumor. Betroffen sind im Durchschnitt Menschen Im Alter von 60 bis 70 Jahren. Die IPMN kommen häufiger bei Männern als bei Frauen vor (Verhältnis 3:2). In ca. 25 Prozent der Fälle ist eine Entartung hin zum Bauspeicheldrüsentumor möglich. In Studien bei Patienten ohne Bauchspeicheldrüsentumor fanden sich 2,6 Zysten pro 100 Patienten (Prävalenz).

Wondergadget Allows Researchers To Read a Charred Biblical Scroll  | #Research #Scanner  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
For over forty years, archaeologists have longed to peek inside a badly damaged ancient scroll found on the western shore of the Dead Sea. Now an international team of scientists has managed to do so by virtually unrolling the scroll, revealing the text hidden deep within: the first few verses from the book of Leviticus.

NASA is building the next Mars rover in mixed reality | #AR #RA 

NASA is building the next Mars rover in mixed reality | #AR #RA  | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it

The ability to investigate the design of NASA's latest spacecraft, which is being engineered for the next mission to Mars in 2020, makes ProtoSpace a unique use for Microsoft's augmented-reality headset. The project enables JPL designers and engineers to not only visualize their designs as virtual 3-D objects, but also pinpoint potential problems that could affect space missions along the way.

 

Back in Pasadena, ProtoSpace is engaging engineers in a new kind of interaction with their spacecraft design. The vehicle, which is essentially a Computer Assisted Design (CAD) model in holographic form, appears as a floating, dynamic animation. You can do things like slip your arm through the brightly colored parts and bolts that are projected in front of you. But what the rover lacks in definition it makes up for in presence. Unlike the CAD design on a flat computer screen, mixed-reality technology brings a full-scale replica of the rover to life inside a room.
