The Creator’s Project kicked off their ReForm series, jumping straight into 3D scanning, but 3D scanning on scale that you likely haven’t seen yet. The short inaugural documentary looks at how researchers are are advancing 3D scanning and motion capture. USC’s Institute of Creative Technology (ICT) is leading the awesome with motion capture tech that…

Wondering what the future looks like? It’s all glass, lots and lots of glass. At least according to Corning, the glass manufacturer responsible for the ‘gorilla glass’ on your iPhone. In this interesting new video put out by the company you’ll see a montage of how glass is embedded (read: controlling) every waking moment of…

Actually, who cares about product development at this point. You’ll be the DJ, up in the front of your office as people tear off their blazers and patent leather loafers. DJ Pablo Martin has launched a new MIDI multitouch controller called Emulator. The multitouch screen you’ll see is called Token and developed by Yöyen Munchausen…

Wow, 3D and multi-touch. Who woulda thought of that. It’s like putting peanut butter on bread. What’s interesting about this is that it’s being used in public to get some collaboration going on with residents in Helsinki. CityWall is a large multi-touch display… which acts as a collaborative and playful interface for the everchanging media…

3D online maps are so yesterday, and so is the news of Google’s new web-based 3D Virtual World, but after looking into it more, I had to let all of you interested in 3D and CAD know what the possibilities could be. You may know about the popular Virtual World SecondLife. It’s a full-featured World…

If you look over the edge of your coffee cup you’ll notice everything is going 3D. There’s more news about 3D maps, 3D TV’s and 3D games than ever before. Then I see this article from the January 1931 issue of Modern Mechanix about a 17,000 sq. ft. model of what modern day (1980) New…

There’s an interesting segment in technology that really has the largest direct effect on how we work and how teenagers spend 20+hours of their week. The Screen. That amazing peripheral you’re gazing into right now to which we’ve come to view the entire world through… until it goes black or your laptop is yanked off…

I’m working on designing and possibly constructing a built-in bookshelf at home. It’s going to wrap around a wall and have an integrated desk in a spot that would otherwise be completely useless. Amazingly enough, bookshelves have commonly been used to do just that. Make an unused space usable. That’s interesting to me because everyday…

So, I was in the sphere yesterday, right, and the boss says, “You’re 3d models are all mis-shappened, are you using this thing right?” He just doesn’t understand the stress of having to be in this thing for hours. Ya gotta just love those virtual reality developers. They’re always thinking of the next way to…

Just about everybody wishes SolidWorks could do this or that or complains that it doesn’t do something really cool. I could throw down a list of things I don’t like, but that’s just makes the selection of fresh organic produce seem even worse than it actually is. Which is actually better than the selection of…
