    FDR-X3000R can capture approx. 8.3MP interval recording shots for 4K time-lapse videos
    Sony has launched a new 4K action camera called FDR-X3000R. It includes Sony’s patented Balance Optical SteadyShot (B.O.SS) technology, which has been is available across Sony’s premium Handycam range, but has been adapted for use in Action Cam for the first time. The camera features a 1/2.5 type 8.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor that can take video with 16:9 aspect ratio.
    In addition to taking 4K video, FDR-X3000R can capture approx. 8.3MP interval recording shots for 4K time-lapse videos. The addition of B.O.SS technology in the action camera helps capture stabilised video recordings even in a jerky video. The action camera looks like a smaller version of a handy cam, and can be mounted on a car or bicycle, or held in the hand using optional acces…

    Indian-origin researchers at Missouri University of Science and Technology have developed a multi-modal sensing device that can track the fine-grained activities and behaviour of people with dementia and it could help in army combat training, too.
    The researchers, Debraj De and Sajal K. Das, along with their teammates created a wearable device for the wrist that can track a person’s movements, ambient environment, bio-signals and much more.
    “The smart chair and the wearable device are new, noninvasive strategies for earlier diagnosis and represent a partnership among scientists and physicians,” said Mignon Makos, Neurologist who collaborated with the researchers for the project.
    Looking like an oversized watch, the sensing device has four basic functi…
