    Virtua Walker 87 is an experimental VR walking simulator prototype, developed by the secretive Silicon Valley startup AGL. Virtua Walker 87 had a limited beta release in September 1987, but early hype faded when reports ...
  • Streaming and 3D mapping of agri-data on mobile devices 

    Stojanovic, V.; Falconer, Ruth E.; Isaacs, John P.; Blackwood, David J.; Gilmour, Daniel J.; Kiezebrink, D.; Wilson, J. (Elsevier, 2017-05-08)
    Farm monitoring and operations generate heterogeneous AGRI-data from a variety of different sources that have the potential to be delivered to users ‘on the go’ and in the field to inform farm decision making. A software ...
  • Ionization in atmospheres of brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets VI: properties of large-scale discharge events 

    Bailey, R. L.; Helling, Ch.; Hodosán, G.; Bilger, C.; Stark, Craig R. (IOP Publishing, 2014-03-04)
    Mineral clouds in substellar atmospheres play a special role as a catalyst for a variety of charge processes. If clouds are charged, the surrounding environment becomes electrically activated, and ensembles of charged ...
  • Ionization in atmospheres of brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets III. Breakdown conditions for mineral clouds 

    Helling, Ch.; Jardine, M.; Stark, Craig R.; Diver, D. A. (IOP Publishing, 2013-04-05)
    Electric discharges were detected directly in the cloudy atmospheres of Earth, Jupiter, and Saturn, are debatable for Venus, and indirectly inferred for Neptune and Uranus in our solar system. Sprites (and other types of ...
  • Jupiter as a giant cosmic ray detector 

    Rimmer, P. B.; Stark, Craig R.; Helling, Ch. (IOP Publishing, 2014-05-14)
    We explore the feasibility of using the atmosphere of Jupiter to detect ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs). The large surface area of Jupiter allows us to probe cosmic rays of higher energies than previously accessible. ...
  • Electrostatic activation of prebiotic chemistry in substellar atmospheres 

    Stark, Craig R.; Helling, Ch.; Diver, D. A.; Rimmer, P. B. (Cambridge University Press, 2014-01-14)
    Charged dust grains in the atmospheres of exoplanets may play a key role in the formation of prebiotic molecules, necessary to the origin of life. Dust grains submerged in an atmospheric plasma become negatively charged ...
  • Reference study to characterize plasma and magnetic properties of ultracool atmospheres 

    Rodriguez-Barrera, M. I.; Helling, Ch.; Stark, Craig R.; Rice, A. M. (Oxford University Press, 2015-10-27)
    Radio and X-ray emission from brown dwarfs (BDs) suggest that an ionized gas and a magnetic field with a sufficient flux density must be present. We perform a reference study for late M-dwarfs (MD), BDs and giant gas planet ...
  • Collisionless distribution function for the relativistic force-free Harris sheet 

    Stark, Craig R.; Neukirch, T. (AIP Publishing, 2012-01)
    A self-consistent collisionless distribution function for the relativistic analogue of the force-free Harris sheet is presented. This distribution function is the relativistic generalization of the distribution function ...
  • Contributions to the magnetospheric parallel electric field 

    Stark, Craig R.; Cran-McGreehin, A. P.; Wright, A. N. (Wiley, 2011-07-20)
    [1] Upward field-aligned currents and their associated parallel electric fields couple the ionosphere to the magnetosphere. It is desirable to know how such a potential drop is distributed along the flux tube, what controls ...
  • On the surface extraction of electrons in a pulsar 

    Diver, D. A.; da Costa, A. A.; Laing, E. W.; Stark, Craig R.; Teodoro, L. F. A. (Oxford University Press, 2009-12-17)
    We present a novel description of how energetic electrons may be ejected from the pulsar interior into the atmosphere, based on the collective electrostatic oscillations of interior electrons confined to move parallel to ...
  • Pulsar electrodynamics: relativistic kinetic theory of radiative plasmas - collective phenomena and their radiation 

    da Costa, A. A.; Diver, D. A.; Laing, E. W.; Stark, Craig R.; Teodoro, L. F. A. (American Physical Society, 2011-01-19)
    The classical modeling of radiation by accelerated charged particles in pulsars predicts a cutoff in photon energy at around 25 GeV. While this is broadly consistent with observations, the classical treatment is not ...
  • An evaluation of a professional learning network for computer science teachers 

    Cutts, Quintin; Robertson, Judy; Donaldson, Peter; O'Donnell, Laurie (Taylor & Francis, 2017-04-21)
    This paper describes and evaluates aspects of a professional development programme for existing CS teachers in secondary schools (PLAN C) which was designed to support teachers at a time of substantial curricular change. ...
  • Quantification of the pore size distribution of soils: assessment of existing software using tomographic and synthetic 3D images 

    Houston, Alasdair N.; Otten, Wilfred; Falconer, Ruth E.; Monga, O.; Baveye, Philippe C.; Hapca, Simona M. (Elsevier, 2017-04-06)
    The pore size distribution (PSD) of the void space is widely used to predict a range of processes in soils. Recent advances in X-ray computed tomography (CT) now afford novel ways to obtain exact data on pore geometry, ...
  • Project Sanitarium: playing tuberculosis to its end game 

    Donald, Iain; Meyer, Karen A.; Brengman, John; Gillespie, Stephen; Bowness, Ruth (Springer, 2017-04-06)

    Sloan, Robin J. S.; Robertson, Paul (ACM Digital Library, 2017-02-26)
    Virtua Walker ’87 is VR walking sim that makes use of a step-based controller for input. Players view the game world using the Gear VR headset, which they can use to look around. Movement is controlled by walking on the ...
  • Shake and create: reappropriating video game technologies for the enactive learning of music 

    McAlpine, Kenneth B. (Springer-Verlag, 2017-03-04)
