Doctor Strange definitely needs this NERF blaster – a gun that generates animated spells out of thin air. This truly is wizardry. This cool hack comes from a Japanese cosplayer, and it is able to achieve the effect by using a spinning LED wand.
Microsoft wants to make their Cortana personal assistant a serious Alexa competitor, obviously, so they should take note of this what Jarem Archer aka untitled network has done here, with the creation of a Halo-inspired holographic Cortana appliance.
He got the idea by imagining what Microsoft’s version of Alexa or Google Home would be like if they designed it to look like the holographic AI sidekick from Halo.
Crowdfunding sites are flush with 3D printer projects these days, so it’s getting increasingly difficult to tell which printer you should buy or if you should just wait for the market to shake out in a few years.
Remember that holographic illusion of 2Pac? It actually wasn’t a hologram, but it was done using projectors and an angled surface with both reflective and transparent properties. Now you can recreate this illusion in miniature, using nothing more than your tablet, and an inexpensive device called the i-Lusio.
If you’ve ever wondered when the holographic projector that R2-D2 used to deliver Princess Leia’s message would actually be real, that time appears to be now. This new display technology allows for images to be displayed in mid-air, using a rapidly moving laser beam.
The Internet is abuzz once again with rumors of the inevitable iPhone 5. Some say it will have an end-to-end screen, some say it will have a curved glass back, yet others say it will work with both GSM and CDMA networks.
How’d you like to fast-forward to the year 2020, and get a sneak peek at the MacBook of the future. Well, industrial designer Tommaso Gecchelin has already done the hard work for you, with his concept MacBook 2020.
Sure, sure, everyone at CES has shown off their fancy new 3D wares, but the vast majority of 3D tech requires that the viewer wear a pair of glasses, and doesn’t actually let you walk around the object in question and see it from the sides.
At the recent SIGGRAPH 2007 conference, a team of engineers from USC showed off a display system that’s capable of projecting interactive 360-degree viewable images produced by a computer.
By using a high-speed video projector, a spinning platform with a holographic diffuser and special decoding hardware, the display can crank out up to 5,000 real-time images per second.
