Inside the matrix: Nanoscale patterns revealed within model research organism

Species throughout the animal kingdom feature vital interfaces between the outermost layers of their bodies and the environment. Intricate microscopic structures — featured on the outer skin layers of humans, as one example — are known to assemble in matrix patterns. But how these complex structures, known as apical extracellular matrices (aECMs) are assembled into […]

Wireless tracking system could help improve the XR experience

A new technology developed by engineers at the University of California San Diego has the potential to make the extended reality (XR) experience smoother and more seamless. The technology consists of an asset localization system that uses wireless signals to track physical objects with centimeter-level accuracy in real time, and then generates a virtual representation […]

360-degree head-up display view could warn drivers of road obstacles in real time

Researchers have developed an augmented reality head-up display that could improve road safety by displaying potential hazards as high-resolution three-dimensional holograms directly in a driver’s field of vision in real time. Current head-up display systems are limited to two-dimensional projections onto the windscreen of a vehicle, but researchers from the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford and […]
