Sony demos updated Project Morpheus VR headset, on track for 2016 release
March 04, 2015
Not since the Nintendo Virtual Boy collected dust on store shelves decades ago has virtual reality been such a big deal. Suddenly every technology company is making its own VR headset, and Sony has just unveiled an updated version of its take on the head-mounted display fad. Project Morpheus was first revealed last year, but the version just shown off at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco has a number of important improvements. And according to Sony president Shu Yoshida, it's nearly final hardware.

Enhancing the bit error rate of indoor visible light communication systems using adaptive channel estimation algorithm
March 01, 2015
1Introduction White light emitting diodes (LEDs) have several advantages over traditional light sources, such as low cost, low power consumption, high luminance efficiency, long lifetime, license-free installation and less prone to interference. Furthermore, LEDs can be directly modulated and used as optical transmitters to realise wireless data transmission [1–6]. Visible light communication (VLC) has aroused a widespread concern in recent years [7–9].

LEDs light up the future of UV/Vis: UVC LEDs are proving their worth in UV/Vis spectroscopy applications by offering better performance, faster data acquisition and longer lifetimes; Separations & Spectroscopy: FeatureAU Venugopalan, Hari
January 01, 2015
  Molecular spectroscopy techniques, such as UV/Vis, infrared and NMR, account for more than a third of a $10 billion market. Of these various techniques, UV/Vis spectroscopy is one of the most basic spectroscopy methods, and is used to perform analyses for a wide range of applications, including DNA quantification at micro volumes and prep HPLC. The majority of customers that intend to purchase UV/Vis spectrometers highlight the following key factors in their purchase decision:           * Performance (sensitivity, reproducibility, wavelength accuracy)             * Osage cost (ease of maintenance and use, low operating cost)     * Data acquisition (faster acquisition and data analysis)         * Instrument cost     [FIGURE 1 OMITTED]     DNA quantification relies on using absorption spectroscopy at 260 and 280 nm to determine DNA concentration and sample purity. Prep HPLC is commonly used for purifying proteins, isolating natural extracts and other routine measurements, and relies on absorption or fluorescence spectroscopy in the UV wavelength range for controlling fraction collection. Manufacturers of these instruments have traditionally chosen xenon flash and deuterium lamps as light sources for these applications. However, high performance UVC LEDs can address some of the key decision-making criteria owing to the inherent benefits of LEDs as a solid state light source.         Sensitivity, reproducibility and wavelength accuracy   Sensitivity and detection limits in absorption spectroscopy are related to light intensity; for the same system noise, a higher intensity light source allows for a shorter integration time for the photodetector and a lower detection limit.
