Along with the diversified methods and materials for the expression of art, media art has achieved continuous growth. And projection mapping has broadened its scope into interior designs and concert halls, aside from outer walls of buildings. Projection mapping is a technology that projects light to an object to create diversified images. An increasing number of exhibitions on media art have been introduced. Based on the projection mapping technology, hologram, scents and music have been combined. And it has satisfied the five senses of the audience. The combination of cutting-edge technologies and nature has captivated the tastes of visitors. Unlimited use of space is the biggest strength of projection mapping. Therefore, it has been used as a tool for a variety of events and festivals. As it is more economical and provides more spectacular performances within a short period of time, it has been applied to a wider range of areas. Moreover, it has been used for musical performances. Unlike existing performances, it can provide special stages that change in real time, so it can improve vividness and help the audience better understand the story. The collaboration of media art and musical has received positive reviews from the audience, as it has provided both enjoyable and moving elements. We introduce projection mapping, which has shown limitless growth potential as it has been applied to a wider range of areas, overcoming the limitations on spaces.
Plasma, which dominates the space, has been known as the fourth state of matter. It has grown in significance as it has been widely applied to different areas including semiconductor, display, manufacturing, medicine and beauty. And plasma farming, which has contributed to producing safe agricultural products and increasing the income of rural households, has been in the spotlight. National Fusion Research Institute has led the researches on plasma farming, as part of an effort to provide safe and healthy food to the public. Moreover, plasma can maximize the sterilizing effect and get rid of the pesticide residue from agricultural products. A bubble plasma machine, which can clean the surface with bubbles, can decompose about 90% of pesticides when operating the machine for about three minutes. And it also provides an enhanced sterilizing effect. And another experiment, which can accelerate the germination and growth of seeds by using plasma, has been carried out. The seeds which have gone through the plasma-based water treatment, have bigger leaves and stems. And they have about two times faster rate of growth. Innovative plasma farming technologies have been commercialized. And they have contributed to storing agricultural products more effectively. Farmers had to discard rotten or dried agricultural products. However, after installing the plasma equipment, the products can be stored for a long period of time, without any problems. We look into plasma farming, which has brought about innovation to the agricultural and food industries and increased the convenience of farmers.
We are now facing the era of 5G network which has emerged based on the hyper-connectivity and ultra-high speed. It can enrich people’s lives, but the generation of electromagnetic waves has raised concerns over the malfunction of devices as well as the safety of humans. The Ministry of Science and ICT has announced its plan to prepare safety measures that can protect people from electromagnetic waves and bring innovation to industries. And a domestic research team has developed MXene, which is a new material for electromagnetic shielding as well as a manufacturing technology for organic ink, which can commercialize the material. MXene is a material that can block electromagnetic waves. However, it can be easily oxidized by water molecules or oxygen, during the production process. When applying organic ink to the surface of MXene particles, it can improve instability and decrease the possibility of oxidation. Moreover, a company has developed an electromagnetic wave attenuation device by making use of biophoton technology and longitudinal wave technology. And it can cut off electromagnetic waves only by connecting the device with a USB port of computers or smartphones. In cold winter, there is usually growing demand for electric pad or electric blanket. And people can be easily exposed to electromagnetic waves even while sleeping. And a company has developed a mattress by implementing heating wires that can cut off electromagnetic waves. Heating wires are embedded in between the fabric and cotton. And the heating wires that produce electromagnetic waves are coated to suppress the generation of electromagnetic waves. We explore electromagnetic shielding, which has emerged as a core technology that can relieve concerns and accelerate the expansion of the 5G era.
