    Nanoscale communication fills a gap, namely, ad hoc communication among entities whose length scale is on the order of nanometers. These entities may be entirely synthetic, but in practice they have more often involved machine communication with small-scale biological entities, namely, subcellular components. Communication directly with and through neurons is a prime example. However, prior to the... View full abstract»

    We live in the age of After Google (AG), where information is just one click away and talking just one touch away. The near future of the AG age is the Internet of Things (IoT), where physical things connected over a network will take part in Internet activities to exchange information about themselves and their surroundings. In other words, the IoT is nothing but a computing concept in which ever... View full abstract»

    Distant pointing using freehand is usually applied in interaction environments where the visual interface is out of a user's arm reach [1]. One example is a user sitting on a couch who is controlling a smart television (TV) across the room. This kind of method is becoming more popular because of the rapid development of large-screen intelligent terminals in recent years. The visual freehand pointi... View full abstract»
