.... applications for medical,
space, physical, chemical, and entertainment uses among other things.
In order to create this alternate reality, however, you need to find ways to
create the illusion of reality with a piece of machinery known as the computer.
This is done with several computer-user interfaces used to simulate the senses.
Among these, are stereoscopic glasses to make the simulated world look real, a
3D auditory display to give depth to sound, sensor lined gloves to simulate
tactile feedback, and head-trackers to follow the orientation of the head.
The Future Of The Internet

.... with this rapid growth will help keep
computers up to date with what is being developed on the internet. With these
technological advances, systems will be faster, more powerful, and capable of
doing more complicated tasks. As more people with different interests,
thoughts, and ideas get involved with the internet, there will be more
information available (Elmer-Dewitt 64). As the number of internet users
increases, the prices will gradually decrease on internet software and

is i .....
Implementing A CAD System TO Reduce Costs
Number of words: 1503 - Number of pages: 6
.... thus helping provide a paper less environment.
Another improvement as a result of CAD would be that of achieving much tighter
tolerances in building new products. Using a CAD system, part designs could be
received in an electronic format such as a math model. These models are
currently in use by customers such as GM, BMW and Mercedes. The effect of
having math models of all new products would enable a quicker turnaround in both
quoting and production of products. CAD Vendors & Hardware Suppliers: Upon
observing the various systems used by several customers an .....

However, the discovery that numerous layers of nylon fabric could dissipate
the energy of the bullet revolutionized the use of modern body armor.
The function of steel or hard plastic armor is to be impervious to
a bullet. The function of ceramic armor is to slow the bullet abruptly by
the hardness of the ceramic and to dissipate the bullet's energy as it
destroys the armor at the point of impact; the tiles or plates of ceramic
bulletproof vest thus have to be replaced once they have stopped a bullet.
The textile vest deforms the bullet and .....

These devices very nearlyd waste) are very much affected by Y2K. Problemed areas are found throughout the water infrastructure. Most obviously water utilities' computer systems will be affected by Y2K unless compliance is fulfilled. If the computers fail, the main areas affected would include customer service, accounts payable and receivable, databases, and management systems. Problems of th .....
