Yes, from your coverage, Beth, it already seems there is an explosion of new technology surrounding everything 3D. Virtualization and simulation seem to be getting real traction, not to mention the reality of 3D printing.

I know, it's crazy. Viztu isn't the only company doing this. As I mentioned, Autodesk has similar technology and I'm sure there's definitely stuff out there that we haven't run across. This capability, along with new content creation tools and low-cost 3D printers, are going to be a huge area of innovation over the next couple of years, in my opinion.

Sounds like these MIT kids have created some pretty nifty software. I didn't realize we were at the point of being able to create 3D images from a photograph.
