Researchers use light projector and single-pixel detectors to create 3-D images
Technology for editing 3-D photos developed
Taking pictures with 3D cameras may start catching on thanks to an innovation by Brigham Young University computer scientists and developers at Adobe.
Single-pixel power: Scientists make 3-D images without a camera
Their system uses simple, cheap detectors which have just a single pixel to sense light instead of the millions of pixels used in the imaging sensors of digital cameras.
'Makers' 3-D print shapes created using new design tool, bare hands
(Phys.org) —A new design tool interprets hand gestures, enabling designers and artists to create and modify three-dimensional shapes using only their hands as a "natural user interface" instead of keyboard ...
Exploring the artsy side of 3-D printing
Three-D printing technology is a game changer in the arts and crafts world. "It really takes the lid off of what's possible," says Andrej Suskavcevic, president and CEO of the Craft and Hobby Association, ...
A revolution in three dimensions ... maybe four: Researchers explore 3-D printing
(Phys.org) —It's an old idea, really. One of the oldest. To make useful things, humans remove the bits that aren't part of the thing we want. We've learned how to then make giant factory machines that assemble ...
A new dimension for 3-D protein structures
(Phys.org) —3D structures of biological molecules like proteins directly affect the way they behave in our bodies. EPFL scientists have developed a new infrared-UV laser method to more accurately determine ...
Blueprints for 3D handgun take refuge in Pirate Bay (Update)
Virtual blueprints for the world's first 3D printable handgun found a safe harbor Friday at file-sharing website The Pirate Bay, dodging a US government attempt to pull them off the Internet.
Amazon working on 3D screen for smartphone, report says
Amazon, long rumored to be developing its own smartphone, is working on a screen that allows people to see 3D images without glasses, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
Files posted online to 'print' working handgun
Computer files to create a handgun almost entirely from parts made with a 3D printer went online Monday, alarming gun control advocates after it was successfully test-fired by its inventor.
Engineers manipulate a buckyball by inserting a single water molecule
(Phys.org) —Columbia Engineering researchers have developed a technique to isolate a single water molecule inside a buckyball, or C60, and to drive motion of the so-called "big" nonpolar ball through th ...
Flight behaviour of hungry malaria mosquitoes analysed
Malaria mosquitoes go to work cautiously before landing on human skin and biting. Just before a mosquito lands, it reacts to both odours and heat given off by the human body. Researchers at Wageningen University ...
