LED Coffee Table - Even You Can Play Game In It !

This is a new type game with a twist and an interesting implementation. At the beginning the designers have just planned to create a simple coffee table with integrated LEDs. Later they have seen the designs with interactive LEDs that responded to objects on the table. After completing the table’s interaction was not enough. Then the designers have decided to control the game using 4 Atari 2600 controllers.

Used Components:
•65 total microcontrollers
•8 Custom power boards
•130,944 bits updated per second
•7-9 Amps power draw
•4092 RGB 256 color LED's on 64 Matrices
•1 LPC2106 Master Controller
•1 Custom router board

In this table each LED matrix consists of two parts. The actual LED module has been composed of 64RGB LEDs in a plastic mounting and an RGB matrix controlled board from Sparkfun.
To play each step of this game has a code and available for downloading.  Manufacturers have added collaborative game modes with multiple balls are introduced. To play a continuous game four player must work together. [ Thank You ]

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…

Google Microsoft Bidding War Continues!
