Things You Can Do With A Hundred Pounds of Magnetic Putty | I Fucking Love Science

Things You Can Do With A Hundred Pounds of Magnetic Putty | I Fucking Love Science | TECH | Scoop.it

bv   Remember the Silly Putty of yore? So stretchy and bouncy (and also quite capable of reproducing faithful, mirror-image copies of the cartoon section of the morning paper). Well, now there's Magnetic Thinking Putty -- just like the childhood stuff, but embedded with millions of tiny, micron-sized magnets. And if you charge the putty with the neodymium iron boron magnet that's included, it becomes a little magnet itself apparently.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, January 7, 2014 3:10 PM

Quote "Unlike the two previous demos, however, it monitors the user’s head movements in real space, and it’s able to translate those movements into not just orientation changes — looking up, down, or behind you — but also as actual motion, which previously was possible only by using a game controller in conjunction with the Rift. It utilizes an “outside-in” system: an externally mounted camera tracks small LED lights on the prototype’s faceplate, adding three “degrees of freedom” (forward/backward, left/right, and up/down) to the Rift’s tracking ability. Up until now, developers and early Oculus adopters have only been able to accomplish this by taping a Razer Hydra motion controller to the side of their Rift headsets. Now, though, leaning down while playing the demo brings you closer to the tower-defense game, and lets you watch the armies you control firing turrets and launching minions. It’s the first look at an untethered VR experience."
