You can’t turn around these days without hearing something about 3-D, whether it’s a new high-def, 3-D TV just hitting the market or yet another movie touting the experience of immersion in a life-like 3-D setting. Dassault, which has staked a claim in the emerging 3-D landscape with its 3DVIA subsidiary, has just announced a free version of its 3DVIA Studio development environment that will allow anyone to create a true 3-D experience for any of these new sources.
The new 3DVIA Studio development environment includes drag and drop stereoscopic 3D, a feature that lets users create stereoscopic experiences for stereoscopic monitors, TVs and video projectors working in checkerboard or side-by-side modes, as well as non-stereoscopic screens with simple red-blue glasses. It’s all part of 3DVIA’s commitment to empower anyone to build lifelike 3-D games and applications, according to Lynne Wilson, CEO of 3DVIA.
To help users navigate the newly-added stereoscopic feature, 3DVIA has published documentation, including a short video tutorial explaining how to use it. Officials also say this addition to the 3DVIA line is the first in a series of turnkey virtual and augmented reality solutions use can expect in the coming months.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
