I know this is about 2d pics to 3d, but I wanted to add this. They can 3d scan parts now in just minutes and have accurate models. I know some uses of that now, but I can think of many many more. I think I need to somehow get into this new wave.

CLMcDade: If I'm not mistaken, I think what you're referring to in Creo is more direct modeling capabilities, not necessarily the ability to create a 3D model from a scanned image. While Creo is certainly ushering in a host of cool and high-utility capabilities, I'm not sure this is one of them.

@CLMcDade: Makerbot is definitely an important player in the low-cost 3D printer revolution. Originally it was more of a hobbyist/put together yourself kit, but now they're offering preassembled units as well. Definitely worth putting on the radar screen so thanks for singling them out!

XYZ, Rabbit, and Disney innovate on the 3d printer in different ways -- from price point to using materials such as yarn.
MIT students modified a 3D printer to enable it to print more than one object and print on top of existing printed objects. All of this was made possible by modifying a Solidoodle with a height measuring laser.
Siemens released Intosite, a cloud-based, location-aware SaaS app that lets users navigate a virtual production facility in much of the same fashion as traversing through Google Earth. Users can access PLM, IT, and other pertinent information for specific points on a factory floor or at an outdoor location.
New software from Carnegie Mellon allows 2D objects -- digital photos, old photos, and even paintings -- to be manipulated in 3D using models found online.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
