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.

3D Systems Will Not Be 3D Printing Google’s Project Ara Smartphone Modules, At Least Not for Now

Late last year it was reported that Google would be working closely with 3D Systems in order to print out the modules for their upcoming Project Ara smartphone. For those who are unaware what Project Ara is, it’s essentially a smartphone which runs off of several modules. There’s a module for the screen, one for the battery, another for the camera, and so on. By making the phone modular, Google hopes to transform the smartphone industry, allowing users to customize and upgrade their phones as they see fit.

Google’s Ara Finds Competition with Modular PuzzlePhone Prototyped with 3D Printing

Google’s modular Project Ara smartphone is set to revolutionize the smartphone business, shedding antiquated models of obsolescence in which old phones are discarded and replaced with a new model of continuous upgrades, in which only old parts are replaced piecemeal. To allow for even greater customization, Google plans to 3D print these modules using 3D Systems’ mass customization 3D printing technology, so that every Ara user can print phoneblocks tailored to their liking. The company has already demonstrated a working prototype of the phone and plans to showcase a second prototype next year. The modularity concept, along with Android’s open source OS, not only opens up the potential to have a new phone practically everyday, but could reduce the amount of e-waste in the world to some extent.
