Behold, 3D color X-rays: MARS scanner, made with CERN tech

This week the folks at MARS Bioimaging revealed the first 3D color X-Ray of the insides of a human body. They've got a device called the MARS large bore spectral scanner, AKA the MARS spectral x-ray scanner - and we're crossing our fingers for a simpler name as the product is further developed, too. This scanner uses an adaptation of technology first used by CERN in the hunt for the God particle.

Walmart 3D Virtual Tour brings interactive shopping to retailer’s website

Walmart is adding a 3D virtual shopping tool to its website, enabling users to engage with potential purchases in an interactive way. The tool can be used directly within an Internet browser, though it also supports generic / cardboard VR headsets so users can look around as if they're standing in the 3D space. Many items within the tours are clickable with additional information.

Vivo Time-of-Flight 3D sensing tech challenges Apple Face ID

Vivo Time-of-Flight 3D sensing tech challenges Apple Face ID

Vivo has some crazy ideas and it’s not afraid to use them. It wasn’t content to put an in-display fingerprint scanner on the Vivo X20 UD, it had to turn half the screen into one as well. Plus, it moved the front camera out of the bezel and into a motorized sliding popup. It might bring it back to the front, though, at least to make its latest innovation possible. It’s simply calling it the Vivo TOF (time of flight) 3D Sensing Technology and it’s issuing a challenge to Apple’s own tech.

This RED 8K 4V camera uses Hydrogen One as its 3D viewfinder

If when RED said its Hydrogen One smartphone would have interchangeable cameras, you were thinking simple lenses, think again. One of the first of the modular camera accessories for the upcoming smartphone has been revealed, courtesy of 3D specialist Lucid, and it's big enough to dwarf the upcoming Android handset.

This Mysterious RED Phone: 10 things we know so far

There's a device called RED Hydrogen One out in the universe that we need to have a talk about. This is a smartphone from the folks at RED, a company best known for their cinema-friendly high-end video cameras. We've seen this smartphone - parts of it anyway - earlier this year, but without a whole lot of deep detail, it's suddenly popped up on Verizon and AT&T. What the heck?

Galaxy S10 release will be 3D special, like iPhone X

Samsung is almost certainly set to bring their 10th Galaxy S smartphone into this world with a bang. A report from South Korea suggests this week that they'll do something not unlike Apple's iPhone X, what with its replacement of the number 10 with the letter, and the 3D scanning abilities - though from a slightly different angle than Apple.

These 3D printed homes cost $4k and take less than 24 hours to make

Non-profit New Story has unveiled a 3D-printed house that may help provide safe and affordable homes in developing countries. Each printed home ranges in size from 600 to 800sqft and can be created within a 24-hour timespan, greatly reducing the time and effort that goes into constructing a house. At the same time, the printing technology keeps waste to a minimum.

Optical Trap Display makes R2-D2’s holographic Leia a reality

Optical Trap Display makes R2-D2’s holographic Leia a reality

Researchers have invented a way to print objects with light into thin air at the Dan Smalley Lab at Brigham Young University. These objects are better than those that've come before them. They do not require that the holographic images they create be stuck to one dimension. Instead, they use nearly invisible particles in the air to create objects that can be viewed from any angle. This is Star Wars made real.

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

HP Z 3D Sprout camera add-on hands-on

The HP Sprout desktop, announced way back in 2014, was already an odd idea. It basically mounted a 3D camera on top of an all-in-one PC that let you scan both 3D and 2D objects. Its near $2,000, at least back then, price tag didn’t help its cause either. Still believing that this is the future of computer input and interaction, HP has tried to make the technology more accessible, in both form and price. Enter the HP Z 3D camera, which is basically the Sprout camera, detached, and compatible with almost any Windows system, preferably HP’s, of course.
