The minds from MIT Labs have once again come up with something that just blows my mind with a device called inForm. inForm uses Dynamic Physical Affordances and Constraints through Shape and Object Actuation. Ok, let me non-MIT that for you. The device uses a type of 3D scanning system to "see" the users interactions. The system then transmits that data to a display table which can then be seen and used by the observer. If you have ever seen those hand print pin toys, then you will have a good idea on how the display table works, in general.
Porsche took over the Forbidden City, Tai Miao on October 17th, to put on a spectacular display for one of the longest running production cars (and definitely the least changed car) in history, the Porsche 911. Check out this video; if you are a Porsche nut, you might even get a little emotional at the end.
Solid Concepts, a 3D Printing and prototyping service in Austin TX, announced they have made the world’s first 3D Printed Metal Gun using a process called DMLS Direct Metal Laser Sintering. This process uses lasers and powdered metals to create the 3d part.
