The look and feel of 35-mm film gives cinematographers more latitude, like directing attention to an area of the image by using the film's depth of field. ARRI GmbH has brought this capability to digital HD cameras by using a 6-megapixel sensor that is the same size as a Super 35-mm film aperture. That lets operators of the D-21 camera use the same prime, zoom and specialty lenses previously used on 35-mm film cameras. The D-21 uses Cypress Semiconductor's OSCAR CMOS image sensor, which has an active pixel count of 2,880 x 2,160 pixels.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
