Returning from the glitz and glamour of Madison Square Garden, the Ohio State men’s basketball team returns home to the Schottenstein Center to play the Lipscomb Bisons.The Buckeyes return from New York City with a split in their games against two ranked teams, the North Carolina Tarheels and the California Golden Bears, in the 2K Sports Classic.Lipscomb brings an 0-3 record to Columbus. Having given up 92 points to Tennessee Tech in its last matchup, Bisons coach Scott Sanderson points to his team’s defense.“We can talk and analyze it and turn it upside down, but the bottom line is that we are not good enough defensively,” Sanderson said.OSU (3-1) will look to build upon its play in NYC and ride the momentum that two good showings against Top 15 teams provided. “It was a great win for the team and a great win for the program and it gives us good momentum,” junior guard Evan Turner said about the Bucks’ 76-70 win over Cal. “It has been a good stretch of games. I’m just trying to play hard.”Turner continues to score points and grab rebounds at an electrifying pace. The California game marked the fourth straight game in which he has posted double digits in both points and rebounds. OSU coach Thad Matta knows that a balanced team is best, but also understands when it is time to ride his best horse.“He is a guy we have to lean on at times to kind of carry us through,” Matta said of Turner.Working center Dallas Lauderdale and his injured right hand back into the lineup has also proven a benefit to the team. Lauderdale scored eight points and had seven blocked shots against the Golden Bears.“Dallas has been inching his way back in,” Matta said. “He gives us a different look both offensively and defensively.”OSU will tune up for next week’s Big Ten/ACC Challenge tonight against Lipscomb and Saturday against St. Francis University.

Integral 3D TV system projects a promising future (w/ Video) More information: Hitachi press release The demo, shown as part of the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) trade show, the Japanese equivalent of CES, at the Makuhari Messe convention center just outside of Tokyo, was meant to show the progress that Hitachi has made in developing 3D projecting devices. Called Full-parallax 3D Display Technology, it looks like hologram technology, but isn’t. Instead it utilizes multiple cameras to capture the image then displays it using a group of 24 projectors, transparent mirrors and computers to project the image down onto a real three-dimensional object, such as an egg. In this respect, the technology is truly unique. When a viewer looking at the image moves up or down or left or right, what they see changes to suit the viewing angle. And if that’s not enough, the projected image can be viewed by multiple people from multiple angles, and everyone sees it as they would were there an actual real-world object sitting there. Also, if the object is moved around a little, the system compensates for it automatically. Explore further The system has a 60° horizontal and 30° vertical viewing angle and Hitachi reps report that it will have a resolution that is 1.6 times higher than anything shown before, though there are reports that Sony is working on a similar system so that boast may not last long.In addition to its use as a tool to show off its coolness factor, Hitachi believes that the projector could be used by design engineers, digital signature apps and perhaps as a training device in the manufacturing or medical arenas.

(PhysOrg.com) — In a feat of technical wizardry combined with several doses of panache, Hitachi has demoed a 3D projector that can project images onto real-world objects in stunning fashion. For the demo, a 3D image of a bird hatching was displayed on an artificial egg that was cradled in an artificial nest. But that’s not all. Viewers looking at the demo see the bird as a hologram, in that as the viewing angle changes, so too does the view of the image, just as it would were you to be watching a real bird. The demo brings to mind Princess Leia, in Star Wars, delivering her message via 3D hologram to Obi Wan Kenobi.
