Flexible TVs and high performance wearables one step closer

Flexible TVs and high performance wearables one step closer
Flexible televisions, tablets and phones as well as ‘truly wearable’ smart tech are a step closer thanks to a nanoscale transistor created by researchers at The University of Manchester and Shandong University in China. The international team has developed an ultrafast, nanoscale transistor – known as a thin film transistor, or TFT, - made out of an oxide semiconductor. The TFT is the first oxide-semiconductor based transistor that is capable of operating at a benchmark speed of 1GHz.

'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.

One to watch for manufacturers of smart wearables

One to watch for manufacturers of smart wearables
After the lasting successes of Smartphones and Smart TV’s, wearable technology has emerged as the next big player in the technology field. The 'quantified self' ideology (logging a person’s life to bring objectivity to areas normally clouded by feelings and impressions) is beginning to catch on in Europe, and German industry association Bitkom forecasts wearable revenues to climb to as much as 8.8 billion euros in 2018.
