I/O apps for Project Tango now available in Play Store

At the I/O developer conference in May this year, Google presented to the world the progress with Project Tango. If you don’t know or remember what that is, this is the project to bring 3D mapping and rendering capabilities to tablets and smartphones via an array of cameras installed on a device with robust specs. At Google I/O this year, the mothership showed some apps that gave users some cool things to do with a Tango device. Those apps are now available to all via the Google Play Store.

Make your own 3D Hologram Projector by following these easy steps

The future of 3D hologram display is not impossible. We don't doubt that our Star Wars hologram fantasies will soon be a reality. It's just a matter of time before the world sees and accepts such technology as a standard. The closest tech we've seen so far is the Holus project that is currently on Kickstarter. We're still waiting for this crowdfunded project to be delivered to backers.

Bevel camera attachment brings Genuine 3D photography to your hands

You know, 3D imaging may be fun but it has not really took off as a standard. We've seen 3D movies, 3D TVs, 3D printers, 3D projectors already but we have yet to see if 3D phones will actually have a future. There are no full 3D smartphones yet, only with 3D features, but who says that you can't enjoy 3D photography right now on your phone? A Kickstarter project was recently launched that hopes to bring basic 3D photography to smartphones and tablets as a simple camera attachment.

Collaborate, organize 3D designs with Fusion 360

For 3D designers, mobile devices may seem pretty useless for them work-wise, as they would prefer to do all their designing and editing on their more powerful laptops and desktops of course. But that doesn't mean it can't be useful for other things, especially if you use the Autodesk Fusion 360 desktop program for product design and development. Now a mobile app version is available to help you organize your files and collaborate with colleagues on certain projects.

The future of holographic display has arrived with Holus

The future is here. These are the first words that came to my mind when I saw the Holus concept. Star Wars fans will be delighted that this could be the holoprojector they've been dreaming about. I like the idea of the holograms on Iron Man more but I never really imagined we'd see such in our lifetime. Sure, display and projector technologies are rapidly evolving and this perhaps is one of the most interactive yet. It's something that's really "achievable".

OpenEars lets you record, share 3D video via live streaming

If you think geeks are running out of ways to innovate in-ear headphones, you're wrong. There are more ways to update the headphones and one Kickstarter project was started to prove that we can do more with them. OpenEars by Binauric SE is the first pair of Bluetooth in-ear headphones that allows you to record videos with 3D audio to share and stream. The great quality of sound is promised, as well as, reliable GoPro connection and HearThrough mode.

Google working with Qualcomm for Project Tango

So here’s the news coming out of Google I/O – there are two Project Tango devices now. Both devices are still “developer units”, but it’s good to know that this is not a stagnant project for the mothership. The first device is the Project Tango tablet, which we have talked about at length. The second device is a Project Tango smartphone, which contains and uses Qualcomm processors to run the show.

Caltech researchers develop 3D scanning camera chip for mobile

Doing things in 3D (three dimensions) is still a “thing” these days, decades after it officially became a trend. These days, 3D printing and viewing 3D images and videos are still luxury devices and features in devices, and so technology adds one more. Scanning objects in 3D usually requires multiple cameras to record multiple planes and aspects to an object. This new Caltech invention may just have the potential to make life easier for us – a single 3D scanning camera chip.

Your venerable View-Master, resurrected using smartphones

Mattel and Google want to bring back your childhood memories by dragging that old school favorite – the View-Master – straight to the 21st century. By collaborating with Google Cardboard, the toy company is banking on the emotional and nostalgic appeal of the old toy and producing a modern version of it. Of course, this time you need a smartphone to go with it.

123D Sculpt+ helps you become a 3D expert on your mobile device

When you say 3D sculpting, you don't automatically think of using your smartphone or tablet because of their obvious limitations for a complicated process like that. But wouldn't it be really fun to try a mobile version of a 3D modeling program? Well, Autodesk, a company that is more or less an expert on 3D graphics animation, certainly thought so, and they're bringing 123D Sculpt+ to your mobile device.
