Virtual reality has made huge technological gains in the last decade, but the ability to feel your surroundings is not yet a part of many mainstream virtual reality systems. A group of University of Rochester students is trying to change that by creating a jacket and gloves that allow the wearer to feel the surface […]
Scientists have recently developed several ways—some simple and some involving new technologies—to hide objects from view. The latest effort, developed by physics professor John Howell and graduate student Joseph Choi, not only overcomes some limitations of previous devices, but uses inexpensive, readily available materials in a new way. “This is the first device that we know of that can do three-dimensional, continuously multidirectional cloaking,” said Choi.
Robert Boyd, professor of optics and physics and a pioneer in the field of nonlinear optical physics, will be awarded an honorary doctor of science degree this summer by the University of Glasgow in Scotland.
CMTI will also make use of the University’s Center for Entrepreneurship as it coordinates activities to develop technological solutions to clinical problems.
Thanks to the Nomogram, Scott MacRae’s team has been able to slash by two thirds the number of LASIK patients who need additional procedures to achieve the best vision possible.
