The Wroclaw University of Technology will be working with IBM Poland to develop a cloud computing center in that country.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, have cobbled together a virtual reality device using a 3D high definition TV along with a haptic technology that allows users to view 3D images but also touch them.
Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City has gone public with an installation of a "3D cave" for biomedical research put in place several years ago using high definition projectors. The system, set up in the Institute for Computational Biomedicine, allows researchers to reconstruct data in an immersive 3D environment using eight virtual reality projectors.
Using a three-year, $1.4 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a team of faculty at the University of Arizona in Tucson is building a new Facebook program intended to help middle and high school students learn how to teach themselves.
A push to inspire kids to pursue careers in computers science and other technology and science areas is getting a four-year, $7 million boost at Carnegie Mellon University.
Starting this fall a class at Duke University in Durham, NC will begin experimenting with the use of Apple iPads in student field research.
The University of Missouri has received an equipment grant from IBM to bolster its computational and storage capabilities for bioinformatics research. The grant will add an additional 64 processors and 24 terabytes of storage to the cluster resources run by the Columbia-based university's Bioinformatics Consortium.
Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute is working with an aircraft company based in Essington, PA to create a navigation and sensor system that would enable a full-sized helicopter to fly at low altitudes while avoiding obstacles.
The University of Arizona and Arizona State University are teaming up to help middle and high school teachers learn how to use new technologies in the classroom.
The national broadband plan promoted in March by the Federal Communications Commission just received a federal boost. A group of national research and education networking organizations will be the recipients of $62.5 million from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
