This article explores direct touch and manipulation techniques for surface computing environments using a specialized haptic force feedback stylus, called ImpAct, which can dynamically change its effective length and equipped with sensors to calculate its orientation in world coordinates. When a user pushes it against a touch screen, the physical stylus(More)
This paper explores direct touch and manipulation techniques for surface computing platforms using a special force feedback stylus named ImpAct(Immersive Haptic Augmentation for Direct Touch). Proposed haptic stylus can change its length when it is pushed against a display surface. Correspondingly, a virtual stem is rendered inside the display area so that(More)
Ustekinumab is a fully human IgG1κ monoclonal antibody targeting interleukin (IL)-12/23 p40 subunit. The role of IL-12/23-mediated pathway in the mechanism of various inflammatory disorders especially psoriasis has been well recognized. Recently the long-term efficacy and safety of ustekinumab in patients with moderate-to-severe psoriasis has been evaluated(More)
We propose an analysis of retweets and their propagation through Twitter. A retweet allows Twitter users to rebroad-cast specific tweets of interest by incorporating all or part of the original tweet into their own. We hypothesize that retweets play a role in introducing new connections to a network , so that individuals who do not follow an individual may(More)
To standardise regenerative medicine using cultured cells, the use of serum-free, chemically defined media will be necessary. We have reported that IL-1α inhibits the growth of epithelial cells in culture and that recombinant IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA) significantly promotes epithelial cell growth in no feeder layer condition. In this study, we(More)
This paper reports the development and evaluation of a natural language generation system which generates a variety of language expressions from visual information taken by a CCD camera. The feature of this system is to generate a variety of language expressions from combinations of different syntactic structures and different sets of vocabulary, while(More)
The interdisciplinary basis of Zoobiquity brought together a tremendous amount of information from many different fields. To make the sourcing as user-friendly as possible, we've divided it into two categories. In the hardcover and electronic versions of the book, you'll find end notes that correspond to specific passages in the text. Here, online, is a(More)
