Touchless sensing technologies initially used in applications such as automatic water closet flushing,and automatic doors which required to sense motion to create response. Now advanced touchless sensing as with gesture, voice, brain wave and eye tracking have emerged and the the application potential expanded considerably. For consumer application segments, gesture sensing is expected as the most promising touchless interface but there remains the question of whether touchless can ever have that cutting edge?

The Scottish Government's new Cabinet has a 50:50 gender split and is tasked to create a nation that is both socially democratic and socially just, a nation that is confident in itself and governed effectively, and a nation which will address poverty, support business, promote growth and tackle inequality.
This Saturday "Computing at School Scotland" is being held at Craiglockhart campus Napier University with the aim to educate, engage and encourage the number of computing science teachers in Scotland, as these have dropped so acutely that the current generation of school children's expertise in the subject will not be fit for employment purpose.
National Trust for Scotland is contacting all its 320,000 members urging them to support John Muir Trust’s opposition to the Stronelairg wind farm development that has already been strenuously opposed by both Scottish Natural Heritage, and the Cairngorms National Park Authority..
The UK has become Europe's most entrepreneurial economy and has climbed five places to fourth globally, according to the 2015 edition of the GEI (Global Entrepreneurship Index) according to Imperial College Business School with collaborators in London School of Economics and Unversities of Pécs and George Mason.
Giraffa camelopardalis is the archetypal African savanna animal, a fixture on every safari agenda as a fascinating animal. Contrary to many of the continent’s other wild animals, the long-necked lovelies are rather poorly studied. Based on their markings, distribution and genome, some nine subspecies are nrecognised – including the two subspecies Angola Giraffe (Giraffa c. angolensis) and South African Giraffe (Giraffa c. giraffa).
Offshore wind is now an annual multi-billion pound market poised for double-digit growth at least until 2020. This is exactly why a 20:20 vision of ''Beyond 2020 energy policy dialogues should start now, to discover the scenarios of what wind farm operators and other energy player should be planning to co-ordinate when current turbine lifetimes expire.
As NPL (National Physical Laboratory) and Manchester University sign a MOU (memorandum of understanding to work on quality and standards to bring graphene closer to practical use, ab approach to accelerate commercialisation of the remarkable 2D material, on the other side of the globe is Ionic Industries aka Grafitech, subsidiary of Australia's Strategic Energy Resources at work with Monash University to develop sustainable manufacture of graphene from natural graphite and grapheme-based nano-filtration membranes.
US and European nuclear experts and observers emphasise that an industry which has previously been geared up for expansion may have little acquaintance with decommission costs, and shortage of nuclear engineers. It is viewed as an emerging market of somet €80.4bn as an estimated spend for global decommissioning in the next 25 year with some 200 reactors to be shut down by 2040.
