    Remarkable power savings can be achieved by simply redesigning displays to provide no more information than the eye can absorb and the brain can digest. Using the strategy called biomimetic, researchers at Clairvoyante Inc. have found a way to address Bayer's color imbalance by introducing a pattern of subpixels, called the PenTile Matrix. In tests, the PenTile Matrix pattern did well on many kind... View full abstract»

    Bioelectrics is an emerging field of research that combines the disciplines of high voltage engineering and cell biology to gain a better understanding of the effects of powerful, ultrashort voltage pulses on living tissue. Bioelectrics depends on advanced pulsed power technology, which is the ability to switch on and off thousands of amperes of current and just as many volts in mere nanoseconds. ...

    One of the crucial technologies in Sony's new PlayStation 3 gaming console is the data transfer connections, or buses, that link the Cell processor to both the console's main memory and the graphics processor. The immersive experience that Sony is aiming for depends largely on the data flowing to and from the Cell processor at speeds way beyond anything achieved in a home-electronics system. The b...

    Weather forecasting accuracy is expected to further improve with the continuing developments in computer and satellite technologies as well as advances in the scientific understanding of how weather evolves. Within the next 10 years, the two- to three-day hurricane forecast will be as accurate as the generally spot-on 24-hour forecast is today. Even more important, from the viewpoint of emergency ...
