In addition to the vacation photos, I can also see more industrial designers and artists using this technology to quickly capture CAD data of their 3D models or sculptures.

Printing souvenirs or other things is a great idea. I like the idea that someone is making it easier create the CAD files. One could take a pic of your child and print them a 3d doll.

I like the vacation idea; the great pyramid, Taj Mahal, why not relatives? I fear it also makes reverse engineering very, very easy.

What a novel idea (and I don't mean it sarcastically): printing your own souvenirs from your vacation pix, after touching them up in CAD. Or for that matter, taking pictures of things around you (like redwood trees or other objects in nature). That gives me ideas for new materials and I wonder if anyone's working on them for 3D apps: ones that resemble natural substances, like wood or stone, and less like plastic.

Taking a picture and printing your own souvenirs--now that would be a real money saver for tourists, not to mention a huge opportunity to create a service that could be monetized. Cool idea.

One nice thing about using aCAD program to "print" 3D images on your home 3D printer is that you can "fix them up" before printing them.  Another nice thing is that you wouldn't have to bring home souveniors, you could just take a picture (lots of pictures) and print them later.  Lots lighter on the luggage.

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.
Cal Poly students use 3D printing to take flight -- and pass their class.
Celebrity engineer Grant Imahara will host a series of “webisodes” that will examine new technology and innovation from an engineer’s point of view.
The UX Italia video contest recognizes Italian machinery, technology, and other experience solutions that have contributed meaningful improvements to people’s lives and production processes. If you submit a three-minute video showcasing how the quality of Italian machinery's User eXperience is essential to your company's success, you just may win a trip to Italy.
