Helping the Blind to Navigate
Picture yourself going to an unfamiliar supermarket for the first time. If you are a person who can see, you can simply look around to guide yourself and identify objects and obstacles. However, blind people must use other senses to find their way through a new space. Soon, the blind might have some navigational help, thanks to Caltech researchers who have combined augmented reality hardware and computer vision algorithms to develop software that enables objects to "talk." Worn as a portable headset, the technology translates the optical world into plain English audio.

A hydrogel that adheres firmly to cartilage and meniscus
EPFL researchers have developed a hydrogel - made up of nearly 90% water - that naturally adheres to soft tissue like cartilage and the meniscus. If the hydrogel carries repair cells, it could help damaged tissue to heal. Some types of body tissue, like cartilage and meniscus, have little or no blood supply and are unable to heal if damaged.

A burst of "synchronous" light
Excited photo-emitters can cooperate and radiate simultaneously, a phenomenon called superfluorescence. Researchers from Empa and ETH Zurich, together with colleagues from IBM Research Zurich, have recently been able to create this effect with long-range ordered nanocrystal superlattices. This discovery could enable future developments in LED lighting, quantum sensing, quantum communication and future quantum computing.

Why some Wikipedia disputes go unresolved
Why some Wikipedia disputes go unresolved
Study identifies reasons for unsettled editing disagreements and offers predictive tools that could improve deliberation. Wikipedia has enabled large-scale, open collaboration on the internet's largest general-reference resource. But, as with many collaborative writing projects, crafting the content can be a contentious subject.

VRTIGO lets you test your nerves in virtual reality
VRTIGO lets you test your nerves in virtual reality
EPFL researchers have developed a virtual-reality program that examines how users - equipped with a headset and sensors - react to a vertiginous stroll. The system will be presented at the Geneva International Film Festival on 5-10 November. Why do some people react more strongly than others when faced with the unknown? Researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Behavioral Genetics, headed by Professor Carmen Sandi, have set out to learn more with a new virtual reality program.

Fleets of drones could aid searches for lost hikers
Fleets of drones could aid searches for lost hikers
System allows drones to cooperatively explore terrain under thick forest canopies where GPS signals are unreliable. Recently, it's been proposed that autonomous drones, which can bob and weave through trees, could aid these searches. But the GPS signals used to guide the aircraft can be unreliable or nonexistent in forest environments.

New way of keeping data private
Many devices that are now a part of our daily lives collect information about how we use them. Computer scientists Dan Boneh and Henry Corrigan-Gibbs have created a new method for keeping that collected data private. The people who design hardware and software for smartphones, internet browsers, high-tech cars and many other internet-enabled devices need to know how people use their products in order to make them better.

Model paves way for faster, more efficient translations of more languages
New system may open up the world's roughly 7,000 spoken languages to computer-based translation. MIT researchers have developed a novel "unsupervised" language translation model - meaning it runs without the need for human annotations and guidance - that could lead to faster, more efficient computer-based translations of far more languages.

Next generation of watch springs
Next generation of watch springs
What happens when something keeps getting smaller and smaller? This is the type of question Empa researcher Johann Michler and his team are investigating. As a by-product of their research completely novel watch springs could soon be used in Swiss timepieces. Applied research is not always initiated by industry - but oftentimes it yields results that can swiftly be implemented by companies.

Against the grain: soil constraints holding back Australian wheat
A model developed by researchers at The University of Queensland could address soil problems, which cost Australia's wheat producers almost $2 billion a year. Dr Yash Dang , from UQ's School of Agriculture and Food Sciences , said the model measures the economic impact of soil problems and could help guide investment decisions on remediation and minimise productivity losses.
