iPhone 2020 3D feature tip bad news for iPhone 11 buyers in 2019

iPhone 2020 3D feature tip bad news for iPhone 11 buyers in 2019

A bit of analysis from TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested this week that Apple's 2020 collection of iPhone devices could use ToF sensors on their backs. But wait, you might be saying, isn't Apple going to bring the rounded-corner circle of cameras to the iPhone in the year 2019? You'd be right about that amalgamation of cameras, more than likely, but the ToF (Time of Flight) sensor is apparently not going to be in the mix this year at all.

Galaxy Note 10 primary feature further confirmed: Aimed at new iPhone 11 war

Galaxy Note 10 primary feature further confirmed: Aimed at new iPhone 11 war

This morning one of the most important features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 was confirmed. Or rather, the fact that we've predicted its existence and specificity in feature details was confirmed, as was pretty much expected. We're talking about the primary camera module, and the fact that it'll almost certainly be more than just comparable to that of the Samsung Galaxy S10.

VW trained AIs to design better 3D printed car parts

VW trained AIs to design better 3D printed car parts

Car design may still be led by the heart, not the head, but VW is experimenting with artificial intelligence that could dramatically change how components are made, even growing them using cutting-edge 3D printing. The technology could help significantly lower weight, as well as give automakers greater flexibility in designing unusual parts for future models.

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!
