information technology : the technology involving the development, maintenance, and use of computer systems, software, and networks for the processing and distribution of data — Webster See also OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary
Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and internet to store, retrieve, transmit, and manipulate data, or information, often in the context of a business or other enterprise. The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet, telecom equipment, engineering, healthcare, e-commerce, and computer services. — Wikipedia

- Haptics device creates realistic virtual textureson May 21, 2022 at 1:33 pm
Tactile sensation is an incredibly important part of how humans perceive their reality. Haptics or devices that can produce extremely specific vibrations that can mimic the sensation of touch are a way to bring that third sense to life. However, as far as haptics have come, humans are incredibly particular about whether or not something feels 'right,' and virtual textures don't always hit the mark. Now, researchers have developed a new method for computers to achieve that true texture -- with […]

Engineers have developed a low cost, low power technology to help robots accurately map their way indoors, even in poor lighting and without recognizable landmarks or features. The technology uses WiFi signals, instead of light, to help the robot 'see' where it's going.
- New thermal management technology for electronic...on May 19, 2022 at 3:53 pm
Electronic devices generate heat, and that heat must be dissipated. The high temperatures can compromise device function or even damage the devices and surroundings if it isn't. Now, a team has detailed a new cooling method that offers a host of benefits, not the least of which is space efficiency which offers a substantial increase over conventional approaches in devices' power per unit volume.
