Pic3D sheets turn your 2D smartphones and displays into 3D screens

Pic3D sheets turn your 2D smartphones and displays into 3D screens

I like 3D content. If I have the choice of a movie in 2D or a flick in 3D, I will take the 3D offering. My son also has a 3DS and I think the 3D makes the little portable much cooler than it would be if it were only 2D. One day I will move up to a 3D TV for my house, but I am waiting until we can watch 3D content with no glasses from all angles that a normal TV supports before I buy. In the interim a company from Japan called Global Wave has an interesting new film that sticks to your computer screen, tablet, or smartphone and makes the display 3D.

Microsoft confirms Kinect is more accurate today than when it launched

I have a Kinect for my Xbox 360 that we have had for a while when the thing first landed at my house it didn't work well because the room we had the system in was too small to get decent accuracy with the Kinect. I guess I need to dig the thing out of the cabinet and plug it back in and give it another go in a larger room. Microsoft has now confirmed that the Kinect is more accurate today than it was when the accessory launched.

Dutchman Johan Huibers builds gigantic wooden Ark

Dutchman Johan Huibers builds gigantic wooden Ark

I would wager no matter your religious views that we are all familiar with the biblical story of Noah's Ark. The giant ship that god commanded Noah to build to save his family and a pair of each animal so that the world could start over after the flood. A Dutchman named Johan Huibers has constructed his second ark and this time he built the thing to the same dimensions that Noah used. The first ark was about half the size of the latest and Huibers chartered that ship charging $7 per person and raised the money to build his new ark.
