iPhone 11 feature leaks release for 2019 and 2020

The future of the iPhone is in flux, with predictions of some features appearing while others fade away. According to a report published today, we won't see 5G in an iPhone in 2019, but we WILL see said feature in 2020. That means another year of waiting - maybe. It might also be that 5G changes the game for every smartphone everywhere.

Notre Dame Cathedral fire: This 3D scan dot may save all

Notre Dame Cathedral fire: This 3D scan dot may save all

Today we're having a peek at a full 3D-scan of the Notre Dame Cathedral interior as captured by Professor Andrew Tallon. If what we were doing back when we were looking at 3D ball cameras in 2016 seemed like nonsense - but who's laughing now, Janice? There's also a certain video game by the name of Assassin's Creed Unity that stands to take part in the cathedral's restoration - it's big!

Insta360 EVO foldable camera records in 180 degrees 3D

Foldable seems to be the new trend this year and it isn't just smartphones either. Insta360, a brand that has become synonymous with consumer and, recently, prosumer 360-degrees cameras has a new foldable product that, thankfully, isn't a smartphone. Whether you want to be immersed in everything that happens, even behind you, or prefer to record things the way you naturally see things, the new Insta360 EVO foldable camera has got you covered. Plus, the new Insta360 VR app and Insta360 HoloFrame will give you more options on how to relive those moments.

NVIDIA quietly admits 3D glasses are ready to die

NVIDIA quietly admits 3D glasses are ready to die

NVIDIA is axing support for 3D glasses in its video cards, with the GPU-maker quietly announcing that its 3D Vision system will soon no longer be compatible with its latest drivers. NVIDIA 3D Vision - previously launched as GeForce 3D Vision - was launched in 2008, as a way for gamers to use any Direct3D game with a set of 3D glasses.

NASA to 3D print sensors, wireless circuit on a single silicon

NASA to 3D print sensors, wireless circuit on a single silicon

3D printing has been a real game changer in the modern world. It has made it possible to fabricate all kinds of objects without being subject to the mercy of large production lines. One can even 3D print food to some extent. Now researchers funded by NASA will apply that technology and manufacturing approach to print sensors and even a partial circuitry for wireless communication on a single board that's no larger than your phone.

iPhone 11’s tipped 3D laser cameras won’t be exclusive for long

iPhone 11’s tipped 3D laser cameras won’t be exclusive for long

This week 3D-sensing laser manufacturer Lumentum spoke about the future of their products in devices beyond those they've worked with in the recent past. Lumentum is the primary supplier of vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) components for Apple's iPhone X line of smartphones re: TrueDepth front-facing cameras. These lasers enable Face ID, portrait mode photography (frontside camera only, for now), and Animoji, in iPhones of several sorts. This week Lumentum Chief Executive Officer Alan Lowe said straight up: Android's on the way.

This CAL 3D printer uses photosensitive liquid and beams of light

This CAL 3D printer uses photosensitive liquid and beams of light

There's a new sort of 3D printer in town, and it goes by the name CAL. This printer was created by a team at UC Berkeley, and its potential is vast. The most popular method for consumer-level 3D printing right this minute is layer-by-layer - through the melting of a material that's been spun into a line. The new method we're looking at today is similar, but makes objects form from a completely different angle.

Insta360 ONE X Matterport integration makes virtual tour creation easy as pie

Insta360 ONE X Matterport integration makes virtual tour creation easy as pie

Insta360 has definitely come a long way. Starting out with a 360-degree accessory for iPhones, the company has moved up to offering the same ease-of-use and convenience to professionals in just two years. The recently announced Insta360 Titan targeted professional studios and creators but you don’t need an expensive kit just for that. The Insta360 ONE X upgrade last year brought everything you need in a professional but portable camera and can soon be used by Matterport users to create virtual tours that not only educate but can also sell real estate.

Hexbot modular desktop robot arm unleashes creativity, learning for all

Hexbot modular desktop robot arm unleashes creativity, learning for all

A few recent technologies have drastically changed the way we make things and learn. 3D printing has opened the floodgates for makers and tinkerers to create all kinds of things previously possible only with an assembly line. Robotics has also given the younger generation a more exciting introduction to science and technology. But in both aspects, quality experiences and results are often out of reach, both in terms of price and availability. Enter Hexbot, the world's most versatile all-in-one desktop arm. Whether you're 3D printing a unicorn, engraving your own phone case, or simply stacking cups, Hexbot is the artistic robotic arm for anyone and everyone.

Robotics help 290-million-year-old fossil walk again

Robotics help 290-million-year-old fossil walk again

So you'd like to see a 290-million-year-old creature walk the earth here in the year 2019, would you? You're in luck, because that happened. You're about to see the work of evolutionary biologist John Nyakatura at Humboldt University in Berlin. He teamed up with robotics expert Kamilo Melo at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne to map and recreate the look of an ancient animal by the name of Orabates pabsti.

New ultra-fast 3D printing technology uses resin and light

New ultra-fast 3D printing technology uses resin and light

Researchers with the University of Michigan have developed a new 3D printing technology that is capable of printing 100 times faster than normal 3D printers. Unlike traditional 3D printers, which work by applying plastic down as layers, the new technology involves resin that is solidified upward at rapid speeds. The new method is capable of producing complex objects at speeds that traditional printers can't compete with.
