    Sharp begins selling robot-shaped mobile phone

    digitaljournalDOOTcom/technology/sharp-begins-selling-robot-shaped-mobile-phone/article/466413

    The device, called the RoBoHon, is only available in Japan as the Japanese firm is initially producing 5,000 units a month.
    On Thursday, a display center dubbed the RoBoHon Café opened at the Aoyama district in Tokyo for visitors to try the robotic smartphone.
    Aside from the café, which will run until June 7, the product is also available at 200 electronics stores across Japan.

  • Google Project Ara smartphone: Release Date, Price and Features May 24, 2016

    If you are thinking about what this fuss is all about, Project Ara is the next generation smartphone directly manufactured by Google. While few attendees managed to view a prototype of the Google Ara at the recently concluded Google I/O conference, the product team is working hard for Project Ara release date to take place by Google IO 2017.

    The main purpose behind the launch of Project Ara is to provide a facility for you to easily change the malfunctioning modules with new ones. Alternatively, you can also upgrade the device as per your wish. According to Google, Project Ara will reduce the amount of electronic waste.

    Features
    In addition to cameras and speakers, modules also enable you to provide advanced features like medical devices, receipt printers, laser pointers, pico projectors, night vision sensors, or game controller buttons.

  • Sumitomo Electric

    Ultracompact RGB Laser Module Operating at +85°C Sumitomo Electric

    April 2016

    We have developed a novel ultracompact RGB laser module with a wide operating temperature range. RGB laser chips,
    photodiode chips, a thermistor, and optical components are mounted on a thermo-electric cooler on a base mount. The base
    mount is hermetically sealed in an 11 × 13 × 5.7 mm metal package, from which high-quality stable collimated laser beams are
    emitted. Operation at +85°C was difficult with conventional RGB laser modules because the output power of laser diodes (LDs),
    especially red LDs, dropped at high temperatures. However, the thermal capacity was lowered by mounting LDs on a chip, thus
    enabled control of module temperature at a wide range of -40°C to +85°C with a Peltier cooler. The temperature is controlled at
    a high reply speed of less than 4 sec.

    We succeeded in developing an ultracompact RGB
    laser module with a wide operating temperature range.
    The size of the module is 1 1 x 13 x 5.7 mm, in which
    RGB-LD chips, PD chips, a TEC, a thermistor, and optical
    components (lenses and a multiplexer) are mounted on
    a base mount. The PDs monitor the laser output power
    of the RGB LDs. The thermistor placed within the
    package controls the TEC. This ultracompact package
    emits collimated RGB laser beams with high precision.
    Control by the TEC enables the RGB laser module to
    operate stably within a wide temperature range from
    -40°C to +85°C.

    Technology research and product development of the whole Pu Optoelectronics began in 2009. Through a strategic partnership with the United States as the company Micro (Microvision LLC), the whole Pu Optoelectronics MEMS micro-laser display technology to further enhance the system. In 2011, a resolution of 600x480 of MEMS micro laser projection modules successfully developed; in 2013, the resolution of up to 960x640 and 1080x720. Currently resolution reached 1920x720, is the most competitive on the market today micro laser projection modules. At the same time, design and improvement of the optical module has an optical laboratories in Tokyo, Japan, in order to continuously optimize the volume of the laser beam spatial correlation, optical loss, and the production process of the optical system. Currently MEMS micro laser projection technology has been completed industrialization, successfully used in micro projectors and projection smart phone.

  • Service robots are the latest fad

    THE times they are a changing.

    Gadgets had already made inroads into our homes — add robots to the growing list.

    Service robots are now being deployed into our daily life to do meaningful works instead of expensive gadgets with concept technologies.

    Robot phones can interact with dialogues and projection; an office robot developed from an iPad; a robotics housekeeper to help with cleaning; and robots designed for kids for the purpose of education while there are others for security reasons as well.

    The robot market in China is expected to be worth 100 billion yuan (US$15.4 billion) within three years and the sales of robots in China are set to almost triple by 2018, according to a report by the Germany-based International Federation of Robotic

    Sharp’s Robohon phone

    With the aim of evolving the way users and devices interact, Robohon allows users to interact through dialogues apart from offering basic functions including call, e-mail, camera and Internet — and serves as a companion in our daily lives. It can grow to accommodate more natural communications with the user by learning the user’s profile and usage situation. It plans to debut in China after finding voice recognition partner in Chinese language.

  • Smartwatches and wearables may be the future, but in the present their clunky interfaces and small screens keep them from imagining their full potential. A new Samsung patent wants to change that.

    The patent features technology that projects a virtual user interface (via laser) onto the wearers hand. The laser would also project touch-sensitive “buttons” onto the hand, forearm or length of the arm that could provide a larger, less-cumbersome means for the wearer to better interact with their watch.

    According to the patent, the feature isn’t limited to smartwatches either; it can also be used for VR/AR headsets and even a full-sized desktop-like interface that beams projections onto the wall around the user via smartwatch.

    As with all patents, this doesn’t mean Samsung is actively developing the technology — or that it ever will — but, the idea of futuristic lasers shooting out of a watch as a control device sound pretty amazing.
