Thermal Display Glove Enable Users to Feel Virtual Temperatures in Real-Time

We need thermal perception for our daily activities. Therefore, thermal feedback stimulation is needed to improve the sense of realism in virtual reality (VR) for users. Conventional methods to provide thermal stimulus utilize liquid circulation with bulky external sources or thermoelectric devices (TEDs) on rigid structures. These systems are difficult to apply to compact wearable […]
Light photon to Power medical implants

South Korean Researchers Develop Method To Wirelessly Power Medical Implants Using Light

Medical implants, such as pacemakers offer additional advantages for the patient. They’ve had a significant impact on healthcare, especially on the long-term management of chronic conditions. But, to power these devices, re-implants and invasive surgery are often required, which may lead to a risk of surgical complications. Now, researchers at the Gwangju Institute of Science […]
