Quantum physics meets IT security

Posted by in categories: computing, government, quantum physics, security, singularity, space

Nice that they are trying to ensure this. However, as we integrate more tech into Biocomputing space and our efforts in achieving singularity; you will need some level of a medical/ or bio background.


It’s hard enough for IT security managers to keep with the latest in conventional computing. Cloud Security Alliance and the US government are trying to make sure you don’t need a physics degree, too.

Multi-planar Processing: Rhinoplasty Implant

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, cyborgs

With the advantage of high resolution providing facial designs that can be created based on the FACS (facial active coding system), 3D photography scanning and printing of the subject will create images with connected feature grids. This allows the angles of the craniomaxillofacial surface to be observed for specific unique aspects of physical characteristics, for underlying anatomical bone structures based on eye to midline features.

The nasal process provides the centerpiece of anatomical facial mapping and organization which affects how the individual is viewed by the world around them. These connected grids with the aid of imaging allow for facial feature approximation for important craniofacial-facial planning creating vital structures that will be 3D printed according to accepted innovation in FACS (Facial active coding system) design. Medical grade silicone soft tissue prosthetics with colour are being created out of the UK with the Picsisma printer by Fripp Design as far back as 2013.

Augmented-reality headsets could help helicopter rescue pilots fly in dense fog

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, engineering

Could augmented reality headsets help helicopter rescue pilots to fly more safely in extreme weather conditions — including heavy fog — in which they have poor visibility? That’s the question set out by a group of researchers at Germany’s Technical University of Munich (TUM). Their answer? An overwhelming yes.

Carried out in collaboration with the Institute of Helicopter Technology, the project uses a helicopter-mounted LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) system to create virtual images of upcoming hazards and other obstacles. This signal data is then processed onboard the helicopter and transmitted to the transparent head-mounted display worn by pilots.

“Databases containing obstacles and terrain data are used together with real-time data from sensors in order to substitute the lost visual cues in degraded visual environment” Franz Viertler, a professor of aeronautical engineering who worked on the project, told Digital Trends. “The other part of the research then deals with how to best visualize the data for the pilot in order to enable a safe flight. The head-mounted display is a perfect means to do this, because the pilots can keep their eyes out of the window, while they get additional information about hazardous obstacles.”

3D Printing Metal Interview with Arcam CEO Magnus René

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical

“May you live in interesting times,” resonates with many involved in the metal 3D printing industry, an ironic phrase regarded by some as a curse. Magnus René, CEO of the Arcam Group AB, might one of the last to agree. In the 3D metal printing market Arcam are unique. Holding propriety Electron Beam Melting (EBM) patents the company is at the forefront of cutting edge industries such as aerospace and medicine. I asked Arcam’s CEO about some of these developments.

René compares today’s additive manufacturing landscape to an earlier career experience in another industry at the frontier of technology.

“I was with a company that developed and released the [semiconductor] printers that are used still to this day for manufacture. Those were also interesting times, we really felt that we were changing the way things were manufactured.”

Researchers at TUM develop new helmet-mounted display

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, business, computing

Fog, blizzards, gusts of wind — poor weather can often make the operation of rescue helicopters a highly risky business, and sometimes even impossible. A new helmet-mounted display, developed by researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), may in the future be able to help pilots detect hazards at an early stage, even when their visibility is severely impaired: the information required to do this is created in an on-board computer and imported into digital eye glasses.

A new study has shown that this augmented reality improves the performance of pilots.

Thick clouds hang over the Tegernsee. The range of sight is just a few hundred meters. Under normal circumstances, a helicopter would not be allowed to take off in such weather — the danger that the pilot would not be able to react in time to a construction crane, a power line or a mountain would be too great.
