New Delhi :
Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT Madras) and National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) incubated startup ‘TRI3D’ has developed a unique apparel visualisation software that converts flat images of garments into photo-realistic 3D images on models & mannequins. This technology is empowering more than 100 new-generation entrepreneurs.
The painstaking task of arranging a day-long –
The images generated by TRI3D are acceptable on most popular online shopping sites, said a release from IIT-Madras. Krishna Sumanth Alwala, co-founder, TRI3D, and an IIT-M alumnus, said, “The painstaking task of arranging a day-long photoshoot with models having to constantly change in and out of sarees, is easily bypassed.

IIT Roorkee prof study finds Fbln7-C can delay programming process
New Delhi :
A study by Indian Institution of Technology, Roorkee (IIT Roorkee) professor Pranita Sarangi has found that Fbln7-C can delay the reprogramming process of macrophages present in the tumor tissues, also known as tumor associated macrophages (TAMs), while directly inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells. This study will be useful for oncological & immunological cancer research & designing therapeutics.
This study used various in vitro systems –
IIT Roorkee As the cancer progress, the macrophages that are initially recruited into the cancer site to assist in the removal of the cancer cells get reprogrammed to produce certain protein substances that help the cancers to grow and spread to different parts of the body. This study used various in vitro systems and an animal breast tumor model to highlight that Fbln7-C could help the macrophages to resist the reprogramming process and delay the conversion of anti-tumorigenic to pro-tumorigenic TAMs, while directly inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells.
Former student of IIT Madras creates a fabric that can kill bacteria and air-borne viruses
New Delhi :
Deepthi Nathala, a former student of Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT Madras) has created a fabric that can kill bacteria, air-borne viruses & provide protection against pollution. The fabric has also been tested against the COVID-19 virus & Deepthi is scaling up the production of washable, reusable face masks & headgear that are environment-friendly.
Hosted by TiE Hyderabad recently –
The mask made up of this fabric has protective covering that not only protects you from dust and grime, but claims to block 99 per cent UV rays, 95 per cent air pollution, and inhibits/kills 99 per cent bacteria and viruses! At the TiE Women Regional Finals, hosted by TiE Hyderabad recently, Hyderabad-based Dibbu Solutions, founded by Deepthi Nathala, was adjudged the first runner-up for their product ‘Hecoll’, a washable and reusable face mask and headgear that protects us from airborne viruses.
