Space Invaders QR Code

Posted By on Feb 28, 2011

A QRCode (Quick Response Code) is a 2D barcode allowing access to any item on the Web (website, image, video etc.) simply by scanning it with a smartphone equipped with a reader such as Mobile Tag. The QR code below, however, won’t take you anywhere. It’s a piece of art that has all the looks of a QR Code, but upon closer examination you’ll spot a naughty alien right out of famous videogame Space Invaders. Well, who would have...

A group of students from Massachusetts have invented AutoFrost, a robot that can draw frosting patterns on cakes. The principle is very simple: input the size and shape of your cake and draw your design using an interface reminiscent of Microsoft Paint. Once you’re done, simply hit a key and off you go. If you want to draw in multiple colours, AutoFrost pauses to let you load another icing colour. The user interface – created...

3D fluid scanning

Posted By on Feb 10, 2011

Friedrich Kirschner’s 3D fluid scanning allow to capture the shape of any 3D object using high contrast fluid like milk or ink. “By capturing the silhouette of an object submersed in the fluid at different stages of submersion, one can generate slices, that, if properly stacked together, can be interpreted as 3D data” The resulting data can be used in 3D animation software or for 3D printing Via Related posts: 3D...

3D mapping of urban environments

Posted By on Feb 7, 2011

SAR interferometry has been successfully used to make a topographic map of the surface of the Earth. However, there is uncertainty as to whether the radar returns come from the actual ground surface, or from a higher point such as the canopy of a forest. By investigating the interferometric properties of the polarimetric data, some information can be gained on where the scattering is coming from. In the ideal case, information can be...

Doodz the little rebel

Posted By on Feb 4, 2011

Dooz is a character created by Jovani, a designer based in Austin (Texas). You can see others Jovani’s 3D models in our gallery. The word “Doodz” derives from “Dudes”, an American English slang term which basically means “a male person”. This term is often used in games, forums and chats. It’s more like an internet slang, started back in 2006, when a Counter-Strike player asked...
