Of for those of you thinking that you would miss the "feel" do not forget haptic feedback that could be incorporated into a LEAP device.

It would be as if...instead of opening up a Photoshop file and giving it dimensions, you open up a hologram file and give it 3d dimensions. So you start with a given piece of clay. Future of modeling?

The Future of Modeling

This might sound crazy, but what if. What if in the future an artist, say a sculpturist(?) instead of making a "real" model has a 3d hologram piece of clay. He/she sculpts that, with the help of a LEAP type input device, then just exports that hologram to a file and has it printed via a 3d printer. Am I crazy? Even if I am that sounds pretty neat to me.

I don't know if this is a good thing or bad thing, but with this technology, I may be taking a few future international vacations from my easy chair.

Spot on, Cadman-LT. The combination of 3D technologies and the new haptics and user input devices like the Leap (all of which are taking a page from the gaming industry) are really pushing the 3D envelope. We'll see that experience translated into immersive virtual experiences like Giza and other historical endeavors, but will also see it making its way into full-blown engineering environments that will make the whole design experience much more interactive and immersive without having to have access to a multi-million virtual reality CAVE.

That seems to be the idea.  I worked on a military project where they would have like to have had such a model of the battlefield.  Back then we assumed that we would use holographic technology to do this.

I agree, Cadman-LT. This is the first time I've ever been tempted to buy a 3-D TV.

Beth, thanks for reporting on this. As an archaeology fan and student, I think 3D and virtual reality are great technologies for teaching, especially about the past.

Take all of the 3D, combined with something like the new LEAP...hard to imagine what it will all lead to. It should prove to be very interesting though! From an engineering point it could and probably will totally change how things are designed. And that's just one thing.

Yep, crazy for sure. I agree with you. I cannot imagine what things will be like in 5-10 years...just incredible.

HP revealed more of its 3D printing plans in a recent webinar. Senior vice president of inkjet and graphics solution business Stephen Nigro spoke about how the technology works and expanded on HP's vision of open collaboration to commercialize its Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology for end-production, and open collaboration on new materials. He also said HP will create software to help users decide when to use Multi Jet Fusion versus conventional subtractive manufacturing.

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
