    Japan’s NICT Creates Quantum Dots To Boost Optic Fiber Bandwidth By 7-10 Times, Shoot High-Res Pictures Of Molecules (Video)

    A team of researchers at the Photonic Network Research Institute of Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) has developed a new light source technology that might pave the way to some pretty spectacular applications in the future. The core piece of the technology are “high-quality” quantum dots, tiny nano particles, that boast higher… Read More

    Video: World’s Largest 3D Display Boasts Full HD Resolution, 200-Inch Screen Size, 57 Viewing Angles

    Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications (NICT) and JVC Kenwood have developed what they say is the world’s biggest 3D display. The device boasts a screen size of 200 inches, offers 57 different viewing angles, and best of all, it doesn’t require you to use glasses to view pictures in 3D. The auto-stereoscopic display is based on 57 projectors in an… Read More

    Video: Home Security System Uses Radio Signals To Detect Intruders

    Video and infra-red were yesterday: Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, the NICT, is working on a home security and monitoring system that’s entirely based on radio signals. The main advantage of the so-called “RAdio-wave Mesh for Intruder Detection System” (RAMIDS) is that there are no blind spots in the areas screened anymore. Read More

  • NICT Shows 200-Inch Naked-Eye 3D Display


    3D overkill: If you thought Toshiba’s 20-inch naked-eye 3D TV is cool, think again: Japan’s NICT (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology) has developed a projector system [JP] that makes it possible to produce 200-inch 3D pictures that can be viewed without having to wear 3D glasses.

  • Video: Amazing 3D table-top display

    The computer-synthesized hologram system we’ve shown you earlier today isn’t the only piece of amazing 3D tech Japanese researchers are currently working on. The NICT, Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, has developed a cool table top display that makes it possible to let multiple viewers see 3D images through 360 degrees.

  • New technology makes it possible to view 3D color holograms of moving objects

    Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) has developed a new 3D electronic holography production technology doing away with lasers or darkrooms. Based on integral photography, moving objects can be taken on video under normal lighting conditions with a fly-eye lens and then be displayed as color holograms. Conventional holography techniques… Read More

  • CEATEC 2008: Japanese research institute showcases one ugly and one cute robot

    Japan’s NICT (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology) is also present at CEATEC 2008 and two of their robots caught my eye, apparently integral elements of their “CareBots Project”. The one you see on the left in the picture above is called Infanoid and is a humanoid that is supposed to resemble a 3-4 year old child (seriously). Infanoid features a… Read More
