Dieter Schmalstieg receives "Forschungspreis des Landes Steiermark"
Prof. Dieter Schmalstieg and his team of ICG developed a new method called Shading Atlas Streaming, which generates the image information in an alternative form based on object coordinates instead of screen coordinates. This makes it possible to display computer games and other content in high quality on inexpensive virtual reality glasses with wireless transmission (in the future with 5G mobile radio networks). Congratulations!
Graz universities celebrated their inventors
Since 2015, the Medical University of Graz, TU Graz and the University of Graz have been honouring particularly "inventive" researchers in a joint ceremony every two years. 260 scientists, amongst them six members of our Faculty, were invited to the third occasion of this award, whose inventive talent produced no less than 169 invention disclosures and 71 patent applications between July 2017 and June 2019. Congratulations to Christian Baumgartner, Gerhard Holzapfel, Friedrich Fraundorfer, Hermann Scharfetter, Jörg Schröttner and Dieter Schmalstieg!
