Imec (Antwerp, Belgium), a leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technology, has unveiled a new wireless eye-tracking technology based on electro-oculography (EOG), an ophthalmology technique used to examine eyes and record eye movement. The technology, which is integrated into a standard pair of eyeglasses, can significantly improve augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) experiences. Moreover, imec aims to employ it for clinical research on neurodegenerative diseases.
Printed electronics: thin – flexible – lightweight. These attributes allow successful use of the technology in the fields of mobility and life science. Under the technical direction of Wolfgang Mildner, managing director of MSWtech, the printed electronics symposium in Nuremberg (4 and 5 July) will present technological possibilities, advantages and development potentials for the printing of electronic functions on the basis of conventional and organic materials.
An estimated 2500 people will attend Printed Electronics Europe, part of the world’s largest series of events on printed, flexible and hybrid electronics, which will be held on 11-12 April at the Estrel Convention Center, Berlin.
