A foundation that assists with technology transfer at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has licensed software designed to educate people about fluid dynamics and air flow to an Ohio-based company, the school said.
Tom Hansen, a graduate student at UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences, developed digital tools designed to let users make ripples in, and perform other interactions with, a two-dimensional “pool” of water. According to an item published by UWM Report, a news service at the school, this pool is actually an image projected onto a screen. People can use their hands to manipulate the fluid thanks to a webcam that’s also part of Hansen’s system. Read the full story here.
