INTRODUCTION The media viewing experience is becoming richer and more exciting than ever before as video content becomes available on an increasingly diverse set of devices, including TV sets, personal computers, game consoles, dedicated media boxes, and mobile devices. However, traditional broadcast networks continue to deliver content targeted to the(More)
Among the many factors suggested as potential sources of variation in the rate of ageing of the pubic symphysis is occupational/physical activity, but this has yet to be demonstrated. This study's main goal is to determine whether occupational/physical activity influences the aging process in the pubic symphysis. We analyzed a sample of 161 males (18-96(More)
uCom enables remote users to be visually aware of each other using "spatial displays"' live views of a remote space assembled according to an estimate of the remote space's layout. Remote video views from multiple viewpoints are shown individually or in a 3D collage representation that is faithful to the scene geometry. A multi-display setup integrates(More)
uCom enables remote users to be visually aware of each other using " spatial displays "-live views of a remote space assembled according to an estimate of the remote space's layout. The main elements of the system design are a 3D representation of each space and a multi-display physical setup. The 3D image-based representation of a space is composed of an(More)
The Graspables project is an exploration of how measuring the way people hold and manipulate objects can be used as a user interface. As computational power continues to implemented in more and more objects and devices, new interaction methods need to be developed. The Graspables System is embodied by a physical set of sensors combined with pattern(More)
RESUMO Este trabalho apresenta a implementação de um algoritmo paralelo de um modelo econofísico de um mercado imperfeito formado por agentes que negociam diferentes produtos entre si, por meio de trocas monetárias baseadas em informações locais. A flutuação do valor dos produtos individualmente, associado à condição de lucro máximo nas transações, leva à(More)
