Always striking the right tone, solving tasks hopping – Fraunhofer IDMT on CeBIT 2011

28.02.2011
On this years CeBIT from March 1st to 5th, in Hannover, Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT, presents new developments.

At the joint Fraunhofer booth B36 in hall 9, you can experience a completely new method how to learn an instrument and how nearly invisible loudspeakers produce convincing sound. At the Connected Living stand (hall 19, C20) visitors see how to support children's learning by movement.

The Institute presents the project »Songs2See« at the Fraunhofer stand in hall 9 (B36) showing an approach to learning to play music instruments that is totally new. For this, the concept of wellknown music-based video games is extended. Instead of game controllers, real instruments are used as input devices.

Using this software, any title from the own song collection can be used to practice. This way, learning motivation is being kept up and you can finally choose to practice songs that you really like.

A nearly invisible but well audible exhibit are the flat speakers of the Ilmenau research lab. They are used in the exhibit “Together despite the distance” displayed by the Fraunhofer IIS from Erlangen. With housings only 2,4 cm deep, these speakers create a remarkable sound quality – even if mounted directly to walls or integrated in furniture. This sound quality has been impossible with flat speakers so far.

Is there something like a useful combination of learning and moving? The concept “HOPSCOTCH” accomplishes exactly that. With the aid of software, children are encouraged to solve tasks by hopping on a dance mat. Exercises are visualized on a display, e.g. english vocabulary checks and the matching solutions. This way, children can do their homework in a totally different way and have fun at the same time. Fraunhofer IDMT presents HOPSCOTCH at the Connected Living stand (hall 19, C20) in the “family” area and at the AOK booth. Here, visitors can answer questions on health topics hopping.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Nano-hologram paves way for integration of 3-D holography into everyday electronics

An Australian-Chinese research team has created the world's thinnest hologram, paving the way towards the integration of 3D holography into everyday...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
