We need more cross-diciplinary engineers

By | March 27, 2012
Neat. The technology used in high-end car simulators (think: test simulators with simulated x, y, z movement of the vehicle capsule within a 20m enclosed system to accurately match user experience and felt acceleration in a driving vehicle) coming to handheld electronics. Considering that the Japanese lead the former field, I'd expect a very pleasant experience with the latter devices.

Japanese researchers invent brilliant touch force-feedback system.

Researchers working at NEC and the Tokyo Institute of Technology have invented a haptic touch panel display technology. The physical glass actually moves to reflect both what's happening on screen and the location of the user's touch.

    There indeed are cultural differences in information and user interfaces. It's often the point that allows a copycat to succeed in a country where the original fails to take hold – and one of the things which makes american-marketed technology less welcomed in other countries.

    Having spent a fair bit of time using a Yokogawa oscilloscope and digital power analyzer, and a bunch of time using Lecroy, Agilent, and Tektronix scopes, I think there are some cultural differences in how information and user interfaces are designed. I'd expect this to work extremely well, but have quite a learning curve.
