Video: NailDisplay gives you a “see through thumb”.
The NailDisplay is envisaged as being a permanently mounted display on a users thumbnail, giving the wearer a variety of different ways to interact with technology.
In one scenario the display shows the user what’s showing on a touchscreen behind their nail, solving the problem of trying to use a small display like on an iPod Nano, with a large thumbnail blocking the screen.
In other scenarios the display allows the user to see an imaginary interface on the users hand or arm, allowing their body to be effectively used as a touchscreen to control music or other apps via a smartphone. It also allows for swiping and other gestures in mid-air.
New Xbox will get ‘more powerful with time’.
Microsoft have explained how the Xbox One will use streaming technology to allow the console to deliver better graphics by leveraging servers in the cloud.
The company says it has 300,000 cloud connected servers available for the One, which will be able to be used to render background objects and landscapes, streaming them to the user and allowing the consoles computation power to be used solely for rendering better game characters. That number compares to only 15,000 servers for the Xbox 360.
“There are a growing number of transistors in the cloud that you can move the loads onto,” said the company’s director of development Boyd Multerer.
“So over time, your box gets more powerful. We move loads into the cloud to free up resources on the box.”
