Auto-stereoscopic technology has been around for decades, but only recently have scientists been reexamining its basic principles to fit today's more advanced technologies. MIT's algorithm is just one example of forward thinking that will eventually make 3-D a standard capability for more displays.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
