Razer’s concept gaming chair wraps players in a huge, curved screen

It’s not as elaborate as other all-in-one workstations from companies like Acer. (Razer /) Elaborate gaming chairs are a CES staple. Every year, there’s at least one—usually more—elaborate multi-monitor workstation that looks like something you’d find in a NASA training facility or in the bedroom of that one guy at work who really loves Battlestar […]

Scientists propose to make a laser scalpel with a ‘curved’ blade

Scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University and Saratov State University teamed up with colleagues from Taiwan and proposed to make a laser ‘blade’ for a medical scalpel with a specified curved shape using a photonic ‘hook’. Currently there are laser scalpels only with an axisymmetric focus area, i.e., with a cylindrical blade. According to scientists, changing […]

Making two-dimensional quantum materials using curved surfaces — ScienceDaily

Scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have discovered a way to control the growth of twisting, microscopic spirals of materials just one atom thick. The continuously twisting stacks of two-dimensional materials built by a team led by UW-Madison chemistry Professor Song Jin create new properties that scientists can exploit to study quantum physics on the […]
