Vision Improves with 3-D
Real-time applications where the camera acts like a human eye
benefit most from 3-D camera technology.

Achieving The Right Light
Understand optical data transmission and the pros and cons of glass vs. polymers.

by Burkhard Danielzik, Banias Konstantinos, Ondrej Lednicky, Werner Sklarek, Juri Vinogradov and Olaf Ziemann

From the Editor: Technology Worth Watching
In my family's big trip to Europe, we started in the Czech Republic, and then, at the travel agent's suggestion, continued on to Italy and France. Germany was briefly on the schedule, but the allure of Paris won out. By the end of the trip, though, we were flagging-my dad and one of my sisters chose to stay in rather than see the Eiffel Tower at night-and I think at least one of us had a fever.
