Very cool stuffs. The #1 is awesome. How possible? That is the singularity arrival in our time. ISSCC is not a must go for innovative minds in this industry

I like to see more news from TI's energy harvesting stuff. It is interesting to know how IC makers think about converting energy from other forms.

I too found the first one as the most interesting idea among all of these great stuffs. Not sure if the first one is based on what is called "Eye Tracking"? Atleast the heading for this topic suggests so. The "Eye Tracking" is carried out by measuring the scattered light emitted by an infrared LED and reflected by the iris. Since this eye tracker only uses one reflection, head movements are compensated by using a bite bar. But not sure if they are using similar technique.

Good two innovations from MediaTek to provide low cost mobile communication and driving the wimax for home video applications.

Zacate getting a place in HP mini note book is a great news for AMD. Their new fusion platform will give them an edge to compete with Intel CPU's.

I would like to see more about energy havesting too. There seems to be an almost endless supply of motion engergy that should be able to keep all of our mobile devices charged.

Eye tracking device sounds fantastic. I was thinking if there was a interface, like we dont have to press any switch, just merely by thought it happens. i guess this eye tracking is very close to that.

I wonder what kind of trouble energy harvesting is going to get us into once it's ubiquitous. There was a time was timber was thought to be an inexhaustible resource. Same with petroleum. Hydro power and wind power were once though to be environmentally friendly, but hydro messes up river ecosystems and wind messes with birds. So many things that seem great in small volumes have proven to simply not scale well. If energy harvesting doesn't come with some albatross, then it, combine with increasingly lower powered chips, will help lead to a dramatic increase in the number of application for small scale monitoring and control. But, that energy has to come from somewhere. Maybe it truly is wasted energy, but maybe when scaled up sufficiently, we'll just find it to be another technology with great promise but a high environmental cost.

It may be just me, but since I was a little kid I dreamt my glasses could be better than eyes, a heads display, night vision, etc. Something like Geordi had on Star Trek. That OLED from Fraunhofer Institute seems to be a step closer. Maybe by the time my future grandchildren need glasses, we'll be there.

Solar's great - does not seem to hassle anything or any one as far as I can see - but time-limited. So to make solar really work - 24 hours - there has got to be a better way of storage. Be that better batteries, supercapacitors, pumping water up into a storage dam during the day and using it to generate hydro power at night, whatever. Anyone fancy running an underwater power cable to/from Australia???

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
