The Spotlight on Online Gaming

Online gaming is a technology rather than a genre; a mechanism for connecting players together rather than a particular pattern of gameplay.

Some people approach online gaming in a casual manner while others get obsessed with online gaming to the point where not much else in their life matters. Don’t be one of those people you hear about on the news who destroys his relationships, his career


Oil-based color pixels could let you watch videos on e-paper

By rapidly manipulating colored oil droplets stacked on top of each other, a new electrowetting (EW) technique could lead to the development of electronic paper displays that can produce high-resolution color video. Displays that use the EW effect could have several advantages over today’s e-readers and other portable flat panel displays, most of which are based on electrophoretic (EPh) technology.

Researchers have demonstrated a vertical stack approach for electrowetting displays that can produce high-resolution color video. Top: A diagram of the device structure.
