Frontline Technology: Advances in 3D-SensingTechnologies and Applications
3D sensing enabled by depth-imaging technologies allows immersive user interfaces and life-like interactive experiences via real-time understanding of the 3D environment, people, and objects in real-world scenes. Advances in this area are being made possible through several key technologies, including sensors, algorithms, and system integration.

Frontline Technology: OLEDs with Candle-Like Emission
Candle-like organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) emit much less blue light than other non-incandescent light sources. This type of OLED is characterized by low correlated color temperature (CCT), chromaticity tunability, and low melatonin (MLT) suppression. The light evokes a sense of warmth and creates a pleasant and calming ambience with its high-quality diffuse orange-red emission.
