You can now create 3D models by waving your smartphone around an object

Even if you rarely check out a technology blog, it cannot have escaped your attention that even regular smartphones are increasingly being used as mediums or tools for the latest technological innovations. Just look at those budget virtual reality goggles that rely on app-based software or those basic 3D modeling apps. Really the big option that still hasn’t been converted into app shape is 3D scanning – but not for long. Researchers from the Pennsylvania-based Carnegie Mellon University have developed a method for doing exactly that.

Google’s Project Tango will let you scan the world in 3D, coming to smartphones this year

Although Google’s Glass didn’t quite turn out as it was intended, the internet and tech giant have been busy creating other types of augmented and virtual reality devices that are slated to change how we see the world around us…including data mapping that could lead to entirely new methods of gathering data for 3D printing applications.

Finnish Puzzlephone relies on 3D printing to build modular smartphones

Though the world is obsessed with (the latest model) smartphones, people know relatively little about their environmental impact and inner workings. Did you, for instance, know that large parts of your phone don’t need to be replaced every two years? Typically, a smartphone battery starts losing its power and efficiency after about two years or so, though your screen will easily last for 10 years.

3D print your own Lumia 1020 powered space telescope Ultrascope

James Parr, founder of the Open Space Agency, had his dream about going to space when he was 10 years old. Now, thirty years later, Parr founded Open Space Agency (OSA) to develop a range of open source automated robotic observatories (ARO) that are capable of capturing pro-level images of celestial objects.

Lumia 3D Printed „Ultrascope“ #MakeItHappen

Microsoft has teamed up with The Open Space Agency (OSA) to create the first ever 3D printed automated robotic observatory, called an ‘Ultrascope’ – with a Lumia 1020 smartphone powering the apparatus at its core. The OSA is a collection of passionate and amateur designers, engineers and scientists from around the world who dedicate their free time to the exploration of space. With the help of Lumia technology, James Parr, founder of the Open Space Agency, was able to make his dream happen and designed this clever piece of easily assembled, affordable, 3D printed equipment. The amazing observatory telescope, with Lumia Camera technology at its heart, allows those who are fascinated by outer-space to take professional celestial photography – empowering them to study the nature of space. Follow the journey and see how Microsoft #MakeItHappen

Google turns on its crazy modular phone in public for the first time

Project Ara is alive, sort of

Speaking today at Google I/O, the technical lead for Project Ara, Paul Eremenko, showed off the progress his team has made since we saw the very early first prototypes this past April. He showed off a functional, form-factor prototype. Which is a nerdy way of saying that for the first time publicly, we saw a modular Ara phone power on.

Replica Labs to Launch „Rendor“ – Application to Turn any Smartphone Camera into a Powerful 3D Scanner

When affordable flatbed 2D scanners first appeared in the 1990′s they provided almost anyone the ability to copy documents from the comfort of their own home. They also allowed us all to quickly digitize any document, or picture we ever encountered, giving us an instant method of backing up physical documents to a hard drive, and eventually the cloud, via the internet.
