iWatch to feature optoelectronics



China's Electrical Engineering Times reports that the coming iWatch will boast optoelectronics to monitor the heart rate and blood oxygen levels of the user.

Apple is said to have chosen the light-based technology over electrocardiography, a more accurate method which measures electrical impulses, due to the former's ability to continuously monitor heart rate with no action from the user. Most ECG-based products require multiple contacts, meaning users must either attach multiple diodes to their body or touch the product with both hands to get a reading.

Revolutionary Graphene Camera Sensor Will Greatly Improve Low Light Photography



Engineers at Nanyang Technological University have developed a revolutionary new camera sensor that is a thousand times more sensitive than the ones currently on the market, reports Science Daily. The sensor is made from graphene and is apparently the first that can detect broad spectrum light from the visible to mid-infrared with high photoresponse or sensitivity.

Graphene is a million times smaller than the thickest human hair (only one-atom thick) and is made of pure carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb structure. It is known to have a high electrical conductivity among other properties such as durability and flexibility.

Apple says new iPad operates 'well within our thermal specifications'



ipad_3_hand

On Tuesday Apple officially commented claims that the new iPad is running warmer that its predecessor.

"The new iPad delivers a stunning Retina display, A5X chip, support for 4G LTE plus 10 hours of battery life, all while operating well within our thermal specifications, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller said in a statement to The Loop. "If customers have any concerns, they should contact AppleCare."

Apple’s response came only couple hours after the publication of an infrared test that revealed the new iPad runs 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter than the previous-generation iPad 2. The temperatures of the new iPad, however, remain well within Apple's specified operating temperature of 32 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 to 35 degrees Celsius.

Left: New iPad, Right: iPad 2

Thermal imaging of the third-generation iPad and the iPad 2 demonstrates that the recently released iPad running 10 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter than its predecessor.

Dutch site Tweakers.net performed the GLBenchmark test on the two generations of iPads for five minutes to measure a heat difference. Using an infrared camera, the publication discovered that the hottest part of the new iPad was 33.6 degrees Celsius (92.5 Fahrenheit), while the iPad 2 measured 28.3 degrees Celsius (83 Fahrenheit).

First sample photos from new iPad show dramatic improvement over iPad 2



ipadcamera-1

Vietnamese website Tinh.te claimed on Tuesday to have received an LTE-capable version of Apple's new iPad. And soon there appeared a series of photos made by the third-generation iPad.

Later on Tuesday, a group of photos supposedly taken by the new iPad were posted to the website's forums. It's clear from the images that the new iPad camera is not as good as the 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 4S, but, when compared to the iPad 2, which had a less-than-1-megapixel resolution, it's a definite step up.

Apple exploring 3D gestures to control devices from a distance



patent

Apple is rumored to be interested in new ways of interacting with devices. The company is known to exploring hand gestures to navigate and control a video recording system without touching anything. As reported, apple filed a patent application entitled "Real Time Video Process Control Using Gestures." In the application they mentioned hand gestures that can be performed without touching the device, allowing to remotely control and editing video recordings on a mobile device. Moreover, a user can perform such gestures in either two or three dimensions. Such gestures could be registered through infrared sensors, optical sensors, or other methods

"As with the touch based gestures applied on or near the touch sensitive input device, the hand gestures can be interpreted to provide instructions for real time processing of the video by the video capture device," the filing reads.

Apple was also interested in the Kinect technology



kinect

Last week Cult of Mac reported that Microsoft wasn't the first company that was really interested in the Kinect technology.

The history actually begins with Israeli military engineers, who developed Kinect camera and infrared sensor. According to the report, after inventing the technology they hired PrimeSense CEO Inon Beracha so he could "shop it around Silicon Valley and find partners to commercialize it".

External IR Keyboard for iPhone Without Jailbreaking



keyboard

Perceptive Development developed a hardware and software solution that allows infrared keyboards to be used for typing on the iPhone, using less than $20 of electronics. They have managed to get an external keyboard working via a custom connection built for the headphone jack. Headphone jack in/out hardware is one of the few interfaces that's open in the official SDK.

They have built a microcontroller that converts input from an external Targus IR keyboard into a format the iPhone's headphone jack can understand, which is then fed to a terminal app that doesn't require jailbreak. Nice!
