VIDEO: A trillion FPS camera captures light particles as they travel

Posted by Jordan Erickson in LNS Blogs, Open Source, Science, Technology Articles

Ramesh Raskar presents femto-photography, a new type of imaging so fast it visualizes the world one trillion frames per second, so detailed it shows light itself in motion. This technology may someday be used to build cameras that can look “around” corners or see inside the body without X-rays.

Touchable Holography

Posted by Jordan Erickson in Science, Technology Articles

Like something out of science fiction, our amazing friends at Shinoda Lab (University of Tokyo) have created a sort of ‘tactile feedback’ that works along with animated 3D holography to give you the sense that these optical illusions are real. Amazing!

Quantum Data Teleportation – Not so Far Away?

Posted by Jordan Erickson in LNS Blogs, Science

Here is a very interesting read over at Nature.com that explains the ongoing race to build a “Quantum Internet”. Physicists Jian-Wei Pan and Anton Zeilinger were long time rivals (but still close researchers and good friends) have worked since the 1980’s in the field of quantum physics, making a lot of headway together and building […]
