    Personalized virtual reality displays match eyesight

    Some new technologies can be tuned to our personal characteristics, like the voice recognition on smartphones trained to recognize how we speak. But that isn’t possible with today’s virtual reality headsets. They can’t account for differences in vision, which can make watching VR less enjoyable or even cause headaches or nausea. Now researchers at Stanford’s Computational Imaging Lab, working with a Dartmouth College scientist, are developing VR headsets that can adapt how they display i...

    Norway is reaching tipping point for electric vehicles as market share reaches record breaking 37%

    We were talking just the other day about how slow it is to change the automotive market because of its gigantic size. With around 2 billion cars on the roads around the world and an annual production capacity of roughly 100 million cars, it takes 20 years to update the global fleet. It means that once all new cars sold are equipped with a new technology, like electric propulsion, it can take up to 20 years to refresh the fleet.

    The Daily Habits that Every Aspiring Author Must Develop

    1. Write Daily. I had aspirations of writing a book ever since I started my very first blog. But it wasn’t until I got into the habit of writing 1000 words a day that I was finally able to write and publish a book. Not only that, having a daily writing habit enabled me to develop the skills that allowed me to finish a 45,000-word manuscript in 6 months. If writing 1000 words feels like a lot, start small. Do 3 sentences a day. In the beginning, what matters more than your word count is develop...
