'4D goggles’ allow wearers to be ‘touched’

'4D goggles’ allow wearers to be ‘touched’
A team of researchers at UC San Diego and San Diego State University has developed a pair of '4D goggles' that allows wearers to be physically 'touched' by a movie when they see a looming object on the screen, such as an approaching spacecraft. The device was developed based on a study conducted by the neuroscientists to map brain areas that integrate the sight and touch of a looming object and aid in their understanding of the perceptual and neural mechanisms of multisensory integration.

Flexible and rechargeable battery can power wearable sensors

Flexible and rechargeable battery can power wearable sensors
  Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the first printed battery that is flexible, stretchable and rechargeable. The zinc batteries could be used to power everything from wearable sensors to solar cells and other kinds of electronics. The work appears in Advanced Energy Materials.

Electronic skin patch monitors alcohol levels

Electronic skin patch monitors alcohol levels
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a flexible wearable sensor that can accurately measure a person's blood alcohol level from sweat and transmit the data wirelessly to a laptop, smartphone or other mobile device. The device can be worn on the skin and could be used by doctors and police officers for continuous, non-invasive and real-time monitoring of blood alcohol content.

Wearable biosensor monitors electric signals in the body

Wearable biosensor monitors electric signals in the body
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the first flexible wearable device capable of monitoring both biochemical and electric signals in the human body. The Chem-Phys patch records electrocardiogram (EKG) heart signals and tracks levels of lactate, a biochemical that is a marker of physical effort, in real time.

Researchers demonstrate world's first 5G

Researchers demonstrate world's first 5G
Keysight Technologies, in collaboration with electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego, has demonstrated the world's first 64 (8 x 8) and 256-element (16 x 16), 60-GHz silicon wafer-scale phased-array transmitter with integrated high-efficiency antennas for Gbps communications at 100 to 200 meters. With this demonstration, Keysight and UC San Diego have proven that a 5G communication link is not only possible, but can deliver record performance.

Brain monitoring takes a leap out of the lab

Brain monitoring takes a leap out of the lab
Bioengineers and cognitive scientists have developed the first portable, 64-channel wearable brain activity monitoring system that’s comparable to state-of-the-art equipment found in research laboratories. The system is a better fit for real-world applications because it is equipped with dry EEG sensors that are easier to apply than wet sensors, while still providing high-density brain activity data.

Communicate by sending magnetic signals through your body

Communicate by sending magnetic signals through your body
Electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego have demonstrated a new wireless communication technique that works by sending magnetic signals through the human body. According to the researchers, the technology could offer a lower power and more secure way to communicate information between wearable devices, providing an improved alternative to existing wireless communication systems.
