Olympus presents sunshine LCD for digital cameras


Dennis Hissink : 2004-03-23 14:37:13
Finally it is possible to check shots on a digital camera's integrated display even in direct sunlight without having to huddle over the monitor or crawl under a table to view the shot. This improvement is the result of a new LCD technology. Called sunshine LCD, it was first integrated by Olympus in its CAMEDIA C-8080 WIDE ZOOM and Mju 410 Digital models. The new technology is also found in two cameras receiving their CeBIT première: the C-60ZOOM and the C-460ZOOM del Sol. In less than a decade, digital photography has progressed at such a rate that it is now a leading image capture technology. Without the fascinating ability to check shots immediately and show them to others, its triumphant progress would certainly not have been possible.


World’s First Running Humanoid Robot at CeBIT 2004


Mark Peters : 2004-03-17 20:01:09
Sony Corporation announced the development of dramatically enhanced motion of Sony’s humanoid robot, enabling integrated motion control for walking, jumping and running. By applying this technology to QRIO, which is one of Sony’s technology platforms, Sony has successfully created the world’s first running humanoid robot. In order to achieve stable motion control for conventional humanoid robots, either one or both feet needed to be touching the floor and, from the opposing force produced by the contact with either of the feet, motion such as walking was controlled. This is the control theory based on the so called ZMP (Zero Moment Point) stable range and forms the foundation of robot motion control.
