New Revolutionary Controller Could Be A Game Changer

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on March - 5 - 2012

A new type on game controller, developed by University of Utah engineers, is unlike anything seen before. The new controller pulls and stretches the thumb tips in different directions to simulate feeling and resistance.

William Provancher, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at the University said:

I’m hoping we can get this into production when the next game consoles come out in a couple of years.

Provancher was recently demonstrating the controller in Vancouver, British Columbia, during the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Haptics Symposium. Haptics deals with research about touch sensory.

Augmented Reality with Google Goggles

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on February - 23 - 2012

 

Smartphones have forever changed the way people connect to the world. Later this year, Google plans on changing things again – with augmented reality.

The Google Goggles App on iPhone is able to recognize objects in the real world, and provide you with relevant information. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen in real time.

Google wants to change that with the release of Google Goggles. The goggles are eyeglasses that will project information, entertainment, and advertisements onto the lenses. Through a built-in camera on the glasses, Google will be able to stream images in real-time to their servers, and return augmented reality information to the wearer.
