  • Project Tango: an exploration into giving mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion.

    Now this will be a game changer. Oh the possibilities! “The future is awesome. We believe we can get there faster if we build it together. Project Tango is an attempt to create a mobile device unlike like any other, a mobile device that shares our sense of space and movement, that understands and perceives the world the same way we do. We have been collaborating with universities, research labs, and industrial partners who share this passion spanning 9 countries around the world to concentrate the past 10 years of research in robotics and computer vision into a unique mobile phone.

  • UK Supermarket offers 3D printed ceramic ‘mini me’ versions of you!

    “We’re trialling an exciting new service – offering you the chance to create a detailed 3D printed miniature version of you and your family while you’re doing your weekly shop! Asda 3D printing In a UK supermarket first, we’re trialling the pioneering technology at our York store from Tuesday (October 15) and prices start at just £40. Just step into the scanner and we create a detailed digital model which is then sent away to be printed in ceramic.

  • Phonebloks – upgradable phone parts made from blocks

    What an awesome idea – when these come out, I’m getting one! Here’s how Motorola are doing this now with Project Ara.. Via Gizmodo: The folks at Phonebloks put together a little thank-you video this morning, and with it, gave us a sneak peek at how Motorola’s new modular Project Ara phone would clip together. Sure, Ara doesn’t look like much as just a baseplate… …but then the screen, front-facing camera and speaker get clipped on. The Ara is then flipped to reveal the clips on the rear …and then all the memory, CPU, camera and storage modules are clipped on. Quite a fetching-looking […]

  • Impossible software that makes 3D models from one single photo!

    Demonstrated at Siggraph Asia 2013, this new 3D modelling software only requires the user to define the three dimensions of an object in a photo by swiping along them with a mouse cursor. Everything else, from generating and texturing the 3D model, to extracting it from the 2D photograph, are all handled by the software. It does away with the need for 3D scanners, multiple images, complex interfaces,and artistic talent. Thanks for the share Oz! M. x via: Gizmodo
