Put It To Use!

Here are a few of the 5,800-plus technologies you can find on, along with our ideas for putting them to use. But don't limit your imagination here-according to Nathan Graf, UVentures' manager of technology partners, no one can envision all the possible applications of a technology. Imagine what an entrepreneur could do!

Remote mechanical mirroring
Beyond virtual reality, this technology mimics sounds and vibrations to make a virtual experience-hang-gliding, for example-and allows the user to feel the wind and the stiffness of the hang glider. Could be developed into games or simulators.

Detection and tracking of moving targets
This software package, which detects and tracks moving targets, could be added into car navigation systems.

Holographic imaging
This real-time, high-res imaging system is used for 3-D profiling. It could be developed as a tool for medical diagnostics or mechanical design firms.

Personal identifier using hand-shape contour information
This technology makes for a great high-security product.

Intrusion Detection In Our Time (IDIOT)
A system of detecting computer hackers in real-time, this technology could be developed into a security system.

Analysis of denial-of-service attacks on TCP (SYNKILL)
With the influx of denial-of-service attacks on Web sites, this technology could be licensed by computer security consultants.
