Nike has once again raised the bar for innovative advertising by unveiling a hyper-realistic holographic display in Europe showing off its latest running shoe.
With George Lucas out of the picture, Disney is saying no to 3D rereleases. Finally, a movie studio comes to it senses.
Gigapixel photography has emerged as an affordable and effective way to make absurdly detailed high resolution images, but to really immerse yourself in a gigapixel image, you need two things: an imposingly large display wall, and a second gigapixel image to render the whole thing in stereo 3D. We found this combination at Siggraph, and it's epic.
Virtual reality failed in the 80s because the technology to enable full immersive gaming wasn't ready. With today's high resolution 3D displays, advanced head tracking and greatly reduced latency, VR can finally stand a chance. The Oculus Rift headset is VR's poster child.
Admitting failure is usually not an option for Nintendo. Now that the 3DS has had well over a year to settle in, Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata finally admits that 3D might not have been the most compelling feature to push onto consumers.
Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. That's how we feel about the new onslaught of 3D remakes of old movies. From Star Wars Episode I to Titanic 3D, Hollywood just won't let 3D die. Steven Spielberg is joining the likes of George Lucas and James Cameron in reviving a movie with "eye-popping 3D." Ugh.
Origami paper folding has long been a traditional art form, but now researchers at the University of Texas at Austin have been inspired to use paper folding as a way to test for diseases. The idea expands on existing paper sensor tests, but the folding allows it to detect more complex substances and diseases.
Having launched its incredibly popular Galaxy S II to a legion of big-screen-loving consumers in the U.S. this past summer, Samsung has its eye set on making a successor for 2012. The Galaxy S III is rumored to sport more power than the Galaxy Nexus and a 3D screen.
Going to see a 3D movie is already a pricier proposition than seeing a traditional movie, but it looks like it might get more expensive. You see, studios have been footing the bill for the 3D glasses they hand out in theaters. But that's about to change.
Holy tacos, it's real, it's really real. Remember Sony's prototype for a pair of OLED 3D virtual reality goggles from back at CES? Well, it's a prototype no more, because Sony actually plans to sell it in Japan later this year, and it'll cost a pretty penny.
