Touring ITRI, Part 3
These days ITRI is still pushing the limits. Its new i236 program aims to find out what sort of things consumers may want when in real life situations they encounter new technologies.

The initiative is exploring a mix of broadband, sensor and TV networks across six application areas. Those areas including the digital lifestyle and home, e-government, energy and health care.

Indeed medical electronics and biotech are emerging areas ITRI as a whole has been addressing with a variety of projects such as wireless personal health devices like this egg-shaped pedometer as well as work on professional devices spanning digital stethoscopes to hulking MRI machines.

Taiwan goes glasses free
We stopped in at the Display Taiwan event for just an hour or so. One of the highlights of the show was this 15.6-inch autostereoscopic display from AU Optronics. It uses a lenticular lens and eye-tracking to create a proper viewing area even if the user moves.

As I was admiring the display, Kiyoto Kanda, president of Newsight Japan, introduced himself and encouraged me to check out his booth. It was more than worth the short walk. He showed his own 45-inch glasses-free stereo 3D display. The prototype forms the basis of a 65-inch display he hopes to get into production with help from another Taiwan display maker, Chi Mei Innolux.
