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.

Now view Ultima Thule in 3D

Now view Ultima Thule in 3D

Today we're getting a better look at the furthest space object viewed relatively up-close by a human-made craft: Ultima Thule! This space body - likely made of mostly ice-like material - is out beyond Pluto. This double-rock-looking hunk was captured in images by the NASA mission New Horizons - a mission whose primary target was our distant cousin Pluto.

RED Lithium Camera aims to make Hydrogen One phone useful

RED Lithium Camera aims to make Hydrogen One phone useful

After some rather negative reviews of the RED Hydrogen One smartphone earlier this year, the company's revealed an accessory of sorts. The RED Lithium Camera is a 3D camera for video professionals, and one that uses the Hydrogen One as a viewfinder and controller. The Hydrogen One wasn't meant for consumers, clearly - now it'll be a part of something far more expensive.

Sony’s hot feature for 2019 phones: ToF 3D

Sony’s hot feature for 2019 phones: ToF 3D

Sony 3D camera modules were given a boost in manufacturing output in Asia after a recent burst in interest from smartphone brands. Brands like Apple and Samsung will feature the Sony 3D camera module in some form or another, so says sources inside the industry that wish to remain anonymous. Sony sensor division's head Satoshi Yoshihara suggested that Sony chips will power 3D cameras from several smartphone brands in 2019.

Implosion Fabrication: MIT can now shrink structures to nanoscale

Implosion Fabrication: MIT can now shrink structures to nanoscale

It's called Implosion Fabrication. They can't quite shrink humans yet, but they can print a very tiny version of most any shape you choose. The MIT responsible for this project invented a way to capture the shape of an object and replicate it, further shrinking it down to nanoscale upon drying. It's sort of like Ant Man and the Wasp (2018), but just a little bit different.

Texas starts using 3D-printers to create dentures for prisoners

Texas starts using 3D-printers to create dentures for prisoners

Inmates in Texas prisons will soon have a new way to get prosthetic teeth: through a dedicated denture clinic that uses 3D-printing technology to produce dentures. The new plan will be implemented by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in spring 2019, hopefully speeding up production and helping more inmates get the prostheses they need.

MakerBot Method 3D printer gives desktop fab a pro-upgrade

MakerBot Method 3D printer gives desktop fab a pro-upgrade

MakerBot has made a name for itself creating desktop 3D printers, but now the company is looking to fill the gap between that segment and the hulking industrial 3D printers that are priced well outside the budget of most consumers. Today, MakerBot announced the Method, which it calls the "first performance 3D printer." The result is a machine that costs a fair bit more than many desktop 3D printers, but borrows capabilities from industrial machines.

Intel RealSense D435i Stereo Depth Camera revealed: 6DoF now a reality

Intel RealSense D435i Stereo Depth Camera revealed: 6DoF now a reality

This week the folks at Intel revealed their latest RealSense camera tech, a model by the name of RealSense Depth Camera D435i. This is the sort of camera you use to add depth sensing and tracking capabilities to all manner of devices. This latest version of the camera from Intel adds the all-important inertial measurement unit (IMU) that brings a whole new dimension to the data provided to the end user.
