  • Mapping Disasters in 3-D

    A demonstration of a software program called RubbleViewer that maps rubble in disaster-rescue situations and builds a 3-D map that rescue personnel can navigate and annotate.

  • A Better, Cheaper Multitouch Interface

    In this video, the researchers demonstrate a few applications that could be incorporated with their pressure-sensitive touch pad, dubbed the UnMousePad. The researchers connect the pad to a computer and display to create a map of the intensity and location of pressure points. The pad can also be used to draw with fingers, write with a stylus, sculpt virtual globes, and control electronic musical equipment.

  • A Color E-Reader

    The new Fujitsu color e-reader uses LCD technology but has some of the advantages of e-paper.

  • A Heatstroke-Sensing Helmet

    Hothead Technologies has developed a system that can sense and warn a user of heatstroke. In this video, an RFID transmitter is fitted in a headband and a white temperature-sensing patch touches the wearer’s forehead. Readings are beamed to a PDA (not shown). When the wearer’s temperature hits 102.5 and stays there for 20 seconds, an alarm sounds on the PDA.

  • Gravity Satellite Blasts Off on Climate Mission

    The Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) is a new satellite developed by the European Space Agency to measure the earth’s gravity field. Here, researchers discuss the mission and how it will impact climate-change research.
