Future mobility with brains

Predicting the future is hard. But when we are on the road, there are cars ahead of us that can see what we will see a few minutes or a few hours into our future. Carlo van de Weijer explains how by linking our increasingly smart cars together we will soon be able to plan when we will be in a traffic jam.

Ultra HD TV: the future of 2D TV in two parts

Ultra HD TV: the future of 2D TV in two parts | FutureChronicles | Scoop.it

"The next - maybe final - stage of high definition 2D TV will be delivered in two stages that will boost today’s HD to the limit of human eyesight.

 

HDTV today has settled around images that are 1,920 pixels across and 1,080 pixels high, but Ultra HD TV will be 7,680 pixels by 4,320 pixels.

 

The International Telecommunications Union, which sets standards for broadcasters worldwide, has settled on a two-step introduction of Ultra HD."

How 4K Resolution Will Bring Movie-Theater Quality Into the Living Room

How 4K Resolution Will Bring Movie-Theater Quality Into the Living Room | FutureChronicles | Scoop.it

The Bigger Picture Quick stats: A DVD has about 345,600 pixels per frame. Blu-ray? 2.1 million. 4K? A whopping 8.8 million.Alison Seiffer

Since the first high-definition televisions came out in 1998, consumers have heard the same tired sales pitch: “It’s like having a movie theater in your living room!” Actually, no. An HD image does have nearly the same resolution as one projected in a theater. But when viewed on a large screen in a tight living room, the image's quality degrades markedly. 4K, a resolution standard just beginning to reach consumer markets, promises to make possible the dream of any serious film fan—vast, perfectly crisp movies at home.
