The Virttable at iTec ’08 [Update]

We are proudly announcing that the Virttable will feature at an IT exhibition called iTec ’08 at the darmstadtium in Darmstadt, Germany on 6 and 7 November.

This is a small version of the poster with which we will present features of the Virttable at iTec ’08:

Many thanks to Melanie Seyer, who designed the poster for me!

The Multi-Touch Table Virttable [Update]

The second multi-touch table, that I have built is called The Virttable, which stands for Versatile Illumination Research Touch Table.

CAD Drawing of the Virttable

This table is the property of the department for Design, Computer Science and Media (DCSM) of the Wiesbaden University of Applied Sciences, which provided me with the money for the components of the Virttable. (Actually, we had student fees for a short time in Hessen/Germany. From a part of these student fees the Virttable has been built. Thank you, dear students!!! There’s no cent of public money in the Virttable.) Amongst others those parts include:

The computer that I have used in the Virttable is my Mac Mini.

My 2nd table now has got a lid and the paintwork has been done (the color is bright white). It looks really professional now. I updated my multi-touch table photoset on flickr:

Our University’s PR for the LabAutomation Travel Award Palm Springs for TimeTube

Drei Studierende der Fachhochschule haben den "Travel Award" der "Association for Laboratory Automation" (ALA) gewonnen und reisen im Januar in die USA. Axel Emmer, Johannes Luderschmidt und Frank Masur werden vom 26. bis 30. Januar 2008 an der LabAutomation2008 teilnehmen und dort ihre Arbeiten präsentieren.

Auf der alljährlich im kalifornischen Palm Springs stattfindenden Konferenz nehmen zahlreiche Spezialisten aus aller Welt teil und präsentieren ihre Neuheiten auf dem Gebiet der Laborautomation. Der "Travel Award" umfasst die Reise- und Hotelkosten, die Konferenzgebühren und die Kosten für einen "Short Course", summa summarum rund 10.000 Euro. Die Gewinner bekommen die Gelegenheit, ihre Arbeiten auf der Konferenz vorzustellen.

Bewerber für einen der begehrten "Travel Awards" müssen ein Abstract ihrer geplanten Präsentation, ihren Lebenslauf, Empfehlungsschreiben sowie ein persönliches Bewerbungsschreiben einschicken. Die drei Informatikstudenten aus Wiesbaden bewarben sich mit folgenden Themen:

  • "Generic simulation and graphical display of arbitrary Lab-on-the-Chip platforms" (Axel Emmer)
  • "TimeTube: A Haptic 3D Visualization Technique for Assisting Laboratory Staff in Scheduling Tasks" (Johannes Luderschmidt)
  • "AnIML – Managing Vast Amounts of Analytical Documentation Data using Containers" (Frank Masur)

Die Arbeiten der Studenten wurden von Prof. Dr. Reinhold Schäfer und Prof. Dr. Ralf Dörner von der Fachhochschule Wiesbaden sowie von Dr. Gary Kramer vom National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA, betreut.
