Glare-free

Scientists say goodbye to screen glare
“The Fraunhofer scientists say tiny protuberances, smaller than the wavelength of light, form a periodic structure on the surface of the moth’s eyes. This nanostructure creates a gentle transition between the refractive indices of the air and the cornea. The result is much reduced reflection and a moth that lives to fight another day. […] Whereas conventional methods apply an anti-reflective coating in a separate step after production, the Fraunhofer scientists have modified conventional injection molding to impart the desired nanostructure onto the surface during the process, obviating the need for a separate process step. The researchers have developed a hard material coating that reproduces the optically-effective surface structure”

Home visualizations

Intel: Envisioning Visualizations in the Home of the Future
Intel: Envisioning Interactions in the Home of the Future [washington.edu] highlights some recent student projects about potential future applications for the projection of interfaces on any surface suitable for display and interaction in the home. The resulting five projects envision the embedding of community networks into the home, a search, interaction across walls, lifestyle coaching, and interactive cooking.”

Personal infographics

Personalize your own Personality Infographic
“The personality infographic generator [ionz.com.br] (you’ll need to wait ~10s) first asks several questions to analyze the unique characteristics of your personality, ranging from topics such as “what do you like to eat” to “how long you are online per day”. This data then results in a simplified map of one’s personality by representing the relative relationships of your answers to those of (+42k) other people.”
