Water droplets create multilayered display

Water droplets create multilayered display | Cool Tech and Science Stuff | Scoop.it

Waterfalls have never been this much fun. Sheets of cascading droplets have been turned into a multilayered computer display, suitable for playing Tetris in 3D.

 

Peter Barnum, Srinivasa Narasimhan and Takeo Kanade at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, have projected images onto a series of water screens, one behind the other, to give depth to the image.

 

Each screen is formed by water droplets falling from 50 stainless-steel needles. The needles release their droplets in unison, with 60 such lines created every second. A camera tracks their position and feeds the information to a projector, which illuminates them with pulses of light. The human eye integrates the information from several pulses to create the illusion of images moving on a floating screen.

World's thinnest screen created from soap bubble [VIDEO]

World's thinnest screen created from soap bubble [VIDEO] | Cool Tech and Science Stuff | Scoop.it

Yoichi Ochiai from the University of Tokyo and colleagues have created the world's thinnest screen from a soap bubble that can display vivid images that are either flat, textured or 3D.

 

Compared to conventional screens that are opaque, a soap film varies in transparency and reflectance. The team was able to control these properties by using ultrasonic sound waves emitted from speakers to alter the surface. By using a single projector, the texture of an image can then be changed on the fly, for example to make a ball look smooth or rough.

 

Several screens can also be combined to create a 3D effect. By tweaking the transparency of the membranes, and displaying alternate images on each one, a holographic projection is created. Since the film is made from a mixture of colloids that make it hard to pop, objects can pass through it without breaking the surface. It's therefore possible to poke the screen and interact with it.

[VIDEO] Putty heals broken bones in days

Scientists from the University of Georgia Regenerative Bioscience Center used adult stem cells to produce a protein involved in bone healing gel. The putty provides full load bearing capabilities. Once its implanted into the site of a fracture bone, it rapidly restore a patient to ambulatory function while healing. Fracture Putty has already been proven to work in animals, and It could be two or more years until human studies are done.
