With the increasing performance of additive manufacturing in accurately 3D printing smaller structures, electronics companies could not have been happier. A cutting edge technology known as “two photon lithography” uses a laser beam and a set of mirrors to harden a resin at very specific points in order to create a structure as small as a grain of sand.
The recent popularity of 3D printing comes to no surprise when you have a look at the range of benefits this emerging technology already delivers. The cost-effective, high quality and unique features of the 3D printed objects along with the continuous development of additive manufacturing
It has been a while since I have covered a subject that proved very popular in the augmented reality world: the virtual dressing room (VDR). At that time, this market was growing rapidly and many big names such as Debenhams, Bloomingdale or Tommy Hilfiger were
The ubiquitous use of a simple gesture such as finger pointing is taken a step forward by the latest technological development of an MIT research team. Learning more about the surrounding world by only lifting a finger can be the next breakthrough in the digital-human
More than 3 billion viewers are expected to watch London 2012 Olympics during over two weeks of sport events and competitions. With billions of pounds poured into the biggest event on the planet there is no surprise that brands choose to integrate augmented reality in
With IBM’s much promoted shopping app and the new augmented reality shopping trend becoming increasingly popular in the fashion world through various types of virtual dressing rooms, why not take this a step… sideways? 3D visualisation, augmented reality and a mobile device’s camera can create
With 92% of retail sales still taking place in the bricks and mortar shops (according to Forrester Research) and with over 1 billion smartphones predicted to be sold in 2014 (Gartner) there is no surprise that IBM decided to take advantage of this market opportunity.
Google has finally unveiled a working early version of their Google Glass project at the Google I/O Keynote from last week. Using a live sky-diving demonstration streamed live on Google’s Hangout service through the glasses’ built-in camera, Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin showcased some of Google
3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) has already been adopted by many big names to replace their current prototyping methods and even to be used as part of the manufacturing process. With an increasing popularity that is already spreading into the consumer market, additive
