Deus Ex Human Revolution Vision To Soon Be A Reality. Nice Gadget!

Deus Ex Human Revolution Vision To Soon Be A Reality

Deus Ex Human Revolution Vision To Soon Be A Reality - CrazyEngineers

Vuzix’s SMART Glasses Eyewear, Industrial Monocular Display, and Thermal and Tactical Monocular Display are one step closer to making the Deus Ex Dream a working reality. Going by the technology showcase at CES, the futuristic lenses seem to delivering their promise. The Thermal and Tactical Monocular Display, funded by DARPA is still under progress.

The Deus Ex like vision employs a compact HD display engine which can project images with high contrast. This makes the image visible under strong bright light as well. The images are relayed to a 1.4 mm polymer waveguide optical lens which can be worn over either eye. The lens’ surface also features input and output hologram structures.

The demo specs feature a resolution of 1280X720 (color), a 30 to 50 degree field of view, HDMI or VGA video interface and 500+ nits luminance. The lens is designed to be as durable as any plastic prescription lenses would be. The primary purpose of Monocular Display vision was to provide for an interactive relationship between soldiers in the field. Soldiers can access strategic data and be alerted of an incoming aircraft before it is in the visible range.

3D printed concert flute ready for action. 3D printers are nice gadgets!

3D printer flute

 

 

 

 

 

 

The world’s first store for 3D printed goods just opened in Brussels, and while we imagine they’ve already got a fair selection of prototyped merchandise to choose, might we suggest they invest in a few production runs of this fabulous new flute? Amit Zoran of the MIT Media Lab — yes, the same soul who helped dream up a 3D food printer early this year — has now printed a fully-functional concert flute with a minimum of human intervention. Directing an Objet Connex500 3D printer (which can handle multiple materials at the same time) to spit out his CAD design, dollop by tiny dollop, in a single 15-hour run, he merely had to wash off support material, add springs, and assemble four printed pieces to finish the instrument up. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, of course, so how does it sound? Find out for yourself in the video below.
