Computer Crash can be Stressful: Initial Biological Proof by Measuring Stress Hormone Levels

It’s an all too familiar scenario: working on the computer and then without warning, the computer suddenly crashes. This type of situation can be stressful. Together with the Linz General Hospital and the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, the Johannes Kepler University is taking a closer look at this type of “technology stress” and has found initial biological proof for this type of pressure.

3D Experience without Glasses

Two dimensional viewing could soon be a thing of the past. In the future, integral imaging systems will enable comfortable, three dimensional viewing experiences without glasses. Scientists at the Institute of Computer Graphics at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz have developed a revolutionary process designed to elongate or compress light fields resulting in the ability to customized images to any desired size or ratio and without any unnatural distortion.
