YouTube Preview Image

“Fresh on the scene fashion designer Noa Raviv has premiered her trend-bending “Hard Copy” collection. As her graduation project at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Hard Copy includes seven dresses featuring black and white ruffled fabrics and grid-like patterns that form voluminous shapes.
One of the collection’s show stoppers is a stunning black dress that seamlessly incorporates a 3D printed element created on the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer.
Watch this brief video to see Noa’s one of a kind collection on the catwalk and hear her thoughts on the happy marriage of 2D design with 3D printing.”

Real-time live 3D video from Kinect 2 in Oculus Rift DK2, demo

“Following the advice of Doc_Ok (okreylos here on Youtube), I tried switching from pointcloud representation to building real-time polygons from the depth and color data coming from the Kinect for Windows v2. The result is a huge improvement. This is just a very preliminary experiment though. Framerate has to be improved a lot for it to be practical, and I have to start over thinking about compression of the data.
What you’re seeing is a build for the new Oculus Rift Developer Kit 2 using Unity3D. The positional tracking is a big improvement in feeling like you’re there, and I think true 3D video has a benefit here over stereoscopic 3D, where you can’t have positional changes.
The new beta SDK from Oculus has just been released and it’s difficult to get it working under all conditions, so I’ll probably won’t be releasing a demo until it’s a bit more stable.

Google: Introducing Project Wing, Smart flying drone project

“Project Wing is a Google[x] project that is developing a delivery system that uses self-flying vehicles. As part of our research, we built a vehicle and traveled to Queensland, Australia for some test flights. There, we successfully delivered a first aid kit, candy bars, dog treats, and water to a couple of Australian farmers. We’re only just beginning to develop the technology to make a safe delivery system possible, but we think that there’s tremendous potential to transport goods more quickly, safely and efficiently.

We’re looking for partners who can help us bring this technology to the world. If you’re interested, please fill out this form: https://g.co/ProjectWing.”
