Clever software transforms 2D pictures into 3D models, and it actually way cooler than we just made it sound.
Three years after Microsoft first showed off Kinect's ability to scan objects, the feature is getting real — if you have the Windows sensor.
Modeling a 3D sculpture and printing it up is now easier than ever with Autodesk's 123D Creatures app for iPad.
This colorful sandbox that changes color as users "play" with it may seem like a toy, but it's actually an ingenious way of creating topographic models. The Augmented Reality Sandbox projects real-time, colorful topographic map data onto sandy surfaces allowing participants to alter topography in real time.
This is one wild blanket. It's all embroidered up with sensors, conductive tassels and resistors that enable it to gather enough information to create a 3D model of itself no matter how it is folded or laid out.
