Always striking the right tone, solving tasks hopping Fraunhofer IDMT on CeBIT 201128.02.2011 - (idw) Fraunhofer-Institut für Digitale Medientechnologie (IDMT)
On this years CeBIT from March 1st to 5th, in Hannover, Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT, presents new developments. At the joint Fraunhofer booth B36 in hall 9, you can experience a completely new method how to learn an instrument and how nearly invisible loudspeakers produce convincing sound. At the Connected Living stand (hall 19, C20) visitors see how to support children's learning by movement.
The Institute presents the project »Songs2See« at the Fraunhofer stand in hall 9 (B36) showing an approach to learning to play music instruments that is totally new. For this, the concept of wellknown music-based video games is extended. Instead of game controllers, real instruments are used as input devices. Using this software, any title from the own song collection can be used to practice. This way, learning motivation is being kept up and you can finally choose to practice songs that you really like.
A nearly invisible but well audible exhibit are the flat speakers of the Ilmenau research lab. They are used in the exhibit Together despite the distance displayed by the Fraunhofer IIS from Erlangen. With housings only 2,4 cm deep, these speakers create a remarkable sound quality even if mounted directly to walls or integrated in furniture. This sound quality has been impossible with flat speakers so far.
Is there something like a useful combination of learning and moving? The concept HOPSCOTCH accomplishes exactly that. With the aid of software, children are encouraged to solve tasks by hopping on a dance mat. Exercises are visualized on a display, e.g. english vocabulary checks and the matching solutions. This way, children can do their homework in a totally different way and have fun at the same time. Fraunhofer IDMT presents HOPSCOTCH at the Connected Living stand (hall 19, C20) in the family area and at the AOK booth. Here, visitors can answer questions on health topics hopping.
