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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
