CT, or computed tomography, scans are to X-rays what 3D movies are to classic 2D flicks. But instead of being just some gimmick to lure patrons into a theatre, CT scans result in 3D models that let doctors study internal medical conditions in amazing detail. But why stop there? Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute have now built a monstrous CT scanner that can scan entire cars and even shipping containers.
In the same way the Lytro camera allows photographers to tweak the focus of their shots in post-production, this multi-camera array, developed by researchers at the Fraunhofer institute, allows directors to adjust the depth of field, the aperture, and even the camera angle of a given shot after it’s been captured. The phrase ‘fix it in post’ now has a whole new dimension.
There’s usually a talented director calling the shots at televised live events like sports or a concert, but researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute want to put some of the control in the hands of the viewer at home. They’ve developed the OmniCam360, an ultra-compact 360 degree camera weighing in at just over 30 pounds that can be easily set up by a single operator.
Window sensors have long been a part of security systems, but since they all rely on wires so they can be constantly monitored, there’s the potential for them to be compromised. That’s not the case with these new wireless sensors that are invisible when installed, and don’t even require an outside power source.
It’s not the first technique for measuring blood sugar levels that avoids the finger prick blood sample route, but this tiny unobtrusive chip could be the least invasive yet. It’s able to make incredibly accurate blood glucose readings from a diabetic’s tears or sweat, and then wirelessly transmit the results for easy monitoring.
If you’re low on the corporate ladder at work, you’re probably stuck under a bank of fluorescent lights without a window in sight. But with Fraunhofer’s new LED enhanced ceilings, a beautiful sky view doesn’t require a corner office.
