Pin Screen On A Building Looks Out Of This World
I am quite sure that when many of us were growing up, we did come across a frame that is full of sliding steel pins that could create a 3D image of whatever solid you placed behind it – such as your hand, or the perennial favorite, a face. Well, how about bringing that idea to the modern day building? This is exactly what British architect Asif Khan set out […]

No Glasses 3D Tablet Makes 3D Viewing More Convenient
We all know just how 3D movies made quite a buzz a few years ago when Avatar hit the silver screen. The thing is, there were not too many 3D movies after that which really managed to capture the rapt attention of the audience, and it has become a gimmick rather than a necessity. The Nintendo 3DS too, tried to ride on the 3D bandwagon where portable gaming is concerned, […]

IZON Wants You To View 3D LED TVs Sans 3D Glasses
When was the last time you paid a visit to the cinema to watch a 3D movie? Do you think that 3D movies will be able to grow from strength to strength, or does it need some kind of kick start such as Avatar and Gravity in order for it to resonate with the masses? Well, for those of you who enjoy 3D movies but prefer to do so in […]

Sense 3D Scanner Is Ultra-Portable And Affordable
3D printing has certainly taken off over the past 12 months as we continue to see some amazing products created with the emerging technology. Since 3D printers are becoming more affordable, more everyday people are getting in on the fun, which also means 3D scanners will also be needed. Unfortunately, scanners aren’t as affordable as 3D printers, although a new scanner being manufactured by 3D Systems may finally be the […]


3D Printed Toothbrush Will Clean Your Teeth In Six Seconds
We realize how important it is to stay on top of our dental hygiene on a daily basis as having a mouth full of rotting teeth will probably won’t be a great look for us. The problem is the amount of time it takes to brush and floss our teeth as well as the fact that we probably miss a few spots here and there without even realizing it. That […]

Occipital Structure Sensor Allows You To Capture The World In 3D
3D is not only confined to the movies, but it has more or less made its way to mainstream consciousness on the home front as well with a rash of desktop 3D printers exploding in this fast growing niche market. Hmmm, having said that, there might just be an opportunity for the world of 3D scanning to mature even more. So far, we do know that Kinect from Microsoft has […]

Skatepark Transformed Into Glowing Canvas
What do you think of skateboarders and the sport that they are involved in? For some of us, it is the unique stunts that they are able to do with a skateboard, stuff that would never have been dreamed up of before perhaps a century or two prior to today. Skateparks are special places created so that skateboarders have a safe space for them to express their creativity through the […]

BBC Set To Suspend 3D Programming
The BBC looks as though they are ready to suspend 3D programming.

Museum That Encourages You To Touch
I clearly remember how my parents always asked me to steer clear of breakable and fragile items in a particular supermarket, especially near the dinnerware area where fine bone china plates are on display. Not only that, there were also signboards plastered all over the place saying, “Nice to see, lovely to hold. Once broken, considered sold.” I guess museums pretty much follow the same philosophy as well, although you […]

Scientists Create Single Pixel Camera For 3D Images
Scientists from Glasgow have managed to come up with an unprecedented discovery, by successfully creating a single-pixel camera for 3D images. This unique discovery would comprise of a projector which displays patterned light on the face on a mannequin, where these patterns will then be used to produce a 2D image. A 3D image is subsequently formed by making use of a technique that is known as “shape from shade”. […]

Try Glasses Online Thanks To 3D Technology
3D printing has seen its fair share of successes, and in one case, students from Harvard University have plans to use 3D printing so that the blind are able to ”see” art. Well, it seems that there is another use for 3D printing this time around, and it could be used for you to try on prescription glasses online. Jonathan Coon, the co-founder and CEO of 1-800 Contacts and its […]

3D movies have become increasingly popular as moviegoers have been swarming to movie theaters to place plastic 3D glasses over their peepers to instantly feel like they’re right in the middle of a film. But providing only a 3D experience in films is so late 2000s as a cinema chain in Japan will soon be introducing a 4D movie theater experience.Japanese cinema chain Korona World will be opening the country’s […]

Camera System Does Long Range 3D Scanning
3D printing seems to be all the rage these days, but what about 3D scanning? Imagine scanning a particular piece of jewelry that you love, only to have a 3D printer work out the scan into reality using material that are all a-glitter, of course, so that you have a cheap imitation of the real deal. Well, those who have watched Jackie Chan’s CZ12 would have certainly wondered whether such […]

3D-Printed Building Project Could Replace Old Concrete Buildings Soon
Dutch architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars wants to build a 3D-printed building. His ambitious project, called Landscape House, is a two-story building that is laid out in a figure eight shape. Explaining his surreal project, Ruijssenaars writes, “One surface folded in an endless Mobius band. Floors transform into ceilings, inside into outside. Landscape flows through and under the house. Architecture of continuity with an endless array of applicability.”
