The latest piece of wearable tech means you don't even need to open your wallet to pay for stuff, take public transport, or provide identification. One ring to rule them all, as they say.

A technological breakthrough by the researchers from the University of Birmingham, published in Science Advances, uses the Rayleigh waves to make virtual reality touchable. This is being used in the technology of VR in hopes of incorporating the sense of touch. The researchers discovered that Rayleigh waves travel through the skin and bone layers, which the body's touch receptor cells pick up and send the message to the brain.

OLED technology has shown just how good wide-gamut, high dynamic range, high-resolution displays can be. Like OLED, MicroLED uses a simple three-colour emissive pixel and delivers very high contrast with deep blacks, a wide colour gamut, high efficiency, fast response, wide viewing angle and the possibility of transparent and flexible (curved) displays. However, MicroLED offers superior gamut, brightness, efficiency and longevity compared to OLED.
Synchro BUS, the urban transport network of the city of Chambéry, is replacing more paper timetables with Papercast® solar powered e-paper passenger information displays across the agglomeration. The unique attributes of e-paper make it ideal for outside use, with unbeatable screen visibility, even in direct sunlight.
