My First 3D Scan
Into Gaming? What If The Real World Was Your Map?
This is impressive tech. Facebook’s Oculus Rift has nothing on the potential of this. The video says it all. For more detail and a view of the prototype headgear, check out the IEE Spectrum article: Sulon Cortex Headset Seeks to Meld Real and Virtual Worlds. A thing like this could produce some seriously altered states. Imagine… Read More »
3-D Printed Housing Evolution
I just watched a simulation of a rather unique 3D Printer. I missed this NBC Nightly News piece when it ran in December 2012. Timing in the interview indicates potential real world equipment being available very soon. Who needs a single house? Imagine printing out a ‘compound’ with separate units all sharing common utility connections,… Read More »
Desktop 3D Printers Will Be Commonplace. Soon.
I’m no expert, but I know a little about 3-D printing. I mean, back in the day when Parametric and SolidWorks were ‘the thing’ in the 3-D modeling CAD world, I was patiently following the development of realtime prototyping solutions. They were pricey but still far cheaper than having models made by hand or with… Read More »
T-Rex Display Follows You!

It’s active through Dec 12 and… Read More »
3D Scanning in the dark with an iPad?
Move over Kinect. Occipital just one-upped you with Structure. The first 3D sensor for mobile devices. Check out this demo they shot at Ripley’s: One quoted author said it best, “It’s like giving some sort of super power to average-joe devices.” 3D is going mainstream. I won’t go as far as saying basic 2D videos… Read More »
3D modeling from a 2D picture? Wow!
