Gear | Apple
A 3D scanner app for the iPad. Itseez3D allows iPad users to convert ordinary objects such as furniture, shoes, toys, and even people, into 3D models. The app works in concert with Occipital’s Structure Sensor ($499), a snap-on hardware device launched as a Kickstarter project last fall.
“The app is targeted to consumers so that anyone who has an iPad and a Structure Sensor can make gorgeous color 3D models,” said Victor Erukhimov, CEO of Itseez. “The sensor provides 3D data for each of the pixels and the color image has three coordinate points to objects that you see in the scene.” The app sends the captured data to the cloud, where it is processed and delivered back to the iPad. Once the 3D renderings have been created users are then able to share or use them in either .ply or .obj formats.

DV8 Sports Golf Clubs
Gear | Sport
DV8 Sports Golf Clubs, a set of golf clubs in a backpack. There are a couple of shafts with up to 14 different club heads, the unique DV8 coupler also lets you change club heads in seconds. Good idea.
"Forget the traditional, regulation set of 14 different club heads with 14 different shafts. DV8 lets you carry those same 14 club heads but with only 1 or 2 shafts. We simply vary the shaft length from our patented quick-change coupler to club head, keeping each club true to its regular length and performance. "

Gear | Video
The value of money is determined by how much (or how little) of it is in circulation. But who makes that decision, and how does their choice affect the economy at large? Doug Levinson takes a trip into the United States Federal Reserve, examining how the people who work there aim to balance the value of the dollar to prevent inflation or deflation.

Strangers slap each other!
"I gathered acquaintances, friends both casual and close, paired them randomly, put them in a void, and asked them to hit each other in the face. No one was pressured, and everyone was hit as hard as THEY asked to be hit. To go beyond the parody for the full story of what happened, be sure to watch Point of Impact."

3D Printing Stone AgeTools

3D Printing Stone AgeTools
Gear | Projects
Israeli designers Dov Ganchrow and Ami Drach recreated stone age tools. These prehistoric flint tools were three-dimensionally scanned at the Hebrew University's Institute of Archaeology. Then, specialized extensions and handles were printed by 3-D printing firm Stratasys out of polymer, the parts were then prepared and assembled on the original flint hand-axes, effectively joining the two most temporally distant making technologies: flint knapping and 3D printing.
"Any multi-tool becomes specialized when frozen at a single moment in time during its use," says Ganchrow. "The first stage of the project was one of hastened evolution and bleeding: flint rocks of desirable size, shape and material quality were sourced from the Negev desert in southern Israel, while time was spent improving and understanding the skill of knapping. Basically this involved the striking of flint with a softer stone (historically a striking bone or antler was also used) to create controlled breakage, and chipping away flint flakes as the impact’s shock wave runs through the stone. Needless to say this is where the bleeding came in..."
