3D Display Harms Your Eyes And Brain

Since the introduction of 3D screen technology and 3D movies, we have been attracted to theatres and everything connected with 3D technology. But no one ever thought of why a headache occurs after viewing 3d content. Why does one feel fatigue or visual discomfort after viewing 3D content?

A Research Team at University Of California, Berkley conducted a research on 24 adults and determined that 3D content hurts both your eyes and brain. The medical term used for this is ‘vergence-accomodation’. To view 3D content, the eyes must adjust accordingly and constantly to both screen and distance of the 3D content which puts unnecessary work on eyes and extra burden on your brain.

Anti-Cancer Medicine Found Within Frog Skin

Researchers at Queen’s University Belfast, have been awarded the commendation at the Medical Futures Innovation Awards in London. The team discovered a medicinal extract from frog skin that can be used to cure cancer tumors.

The skin contains two specific proteins known as peptides, that inhibit the branching of blood vessels, which would stop the supply of nutrients and oxygen to cancerous tumors.

Large CMOS Chip Designed To Save Lives

United Kingdom’s University of Lincoln has created a slim 12.8cm squared CMOS chip that is 200 times bigger than that of a laptop of PC chip. The CMOS chip is called Dynamite and 12.8cm is just about the biggest you can make a CMOS imaging chip on a standard 20cm wafer. CMOS stands for Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor.
