I know that FitBit's device is not exatly haptics, but I can't stand the way the device vibrates on my wrist when I've reached my goal: It never fails to cause me to jump!

3D Haptic Rendering
AZskibum   6/29/2014 3:46:40 PM
The 3D haptic rendering work sounds exciting -- being able to mimic real textures in a convincing way opens up a new world of applications for haptics. The old-school haptics of a buzzing sensation from a piezo device or a DC motor seemed mostly like gimmicks to me. In fact, they were usually more annoying than useful.

@y_sasaki, what about voice recognition?

Technology must be used to make lives of physically challenged better. That would be the correct use of technology. Its good to see great steps are taken on this side. But much more needs to be done.

This reminds of the famous US based Doctor - Tim Cordes who is totally blind since his childhood.

While studying medicine and while doing internship in various branches of the surgery wards, he is supposed to have used Haptics to study the figures, to read the instruments and examine his patients.

The raised line pictures is what he used to study molecular structures while doing his graduation in Biology before getting admission to Medical course.

Dr Tim Cordes is a live example of how Haptics can be used to overcome the blindness.

Really cool tech on display. I thing such technologies can help sensory handicapped people a lot. Most people whose one sense is handicapped will have other senses more receptive. I always think that technology can help human overcome their natural deficiencies.

One thing I don't like about iPhone is their proud patented "slide to unlock" feature. When I have to use iPhone one-hand, it is frustrating to unlock because I must slide my finger exactly where the slider supposed to be. Having proper "feeling" feedback will make touch-screen more natural and convenient.

I'm not a big fan of motion recognition, especially for smartphone / smartpad. Even for in-room application (TVs, Air conditions, etc) I don't feel like dancing in front of a machine to command something.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
