3D Printing – An Infographic.

You may already be aware of 3D printing and just how much of a technological advancement it’s proving to be. If not, Mashable posted up this highly informative and visually pleasing infographic to help fill in all the blanks.

In essence 3D printing allows people to quickly and easily produce actual three dimensional objects from their computers. How about body parts? Or discontinued components for your classic car? Actually these have already been achieved. If I was a counterfeiter I’d be very excited right now.

 

 

Android Users Now Have Instagram…Much to The Hatred Of Apple Fans.

Earlier this week Android announced that the much anticipated Instagram app is now readily available for their users. Instagram is an application primarily used on Apple iPhones which allows users to: ‘Take a photo, apply a digital filter, then share it on a variety of social networking services including Instagram’s own.  A distinctive feature confines photos into a square shape, in homage to both the Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid cameras.’

Of course not everyone was celebrating the launch of Instagram for Android, in fact such was the first world fury of some proud Apple fanboys they took to Twitter to vent their spleens.

The entire sorry collection of nerd rage can be read HERE.

 

A Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera.

What fresh madness is this?

Its the Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera which when chucked up in the air captures a full spherical panorama. Thirty six mobile phone camera modules take the picture right at the peak of the ball camera’s flight, which is determined using an accelerometer. Fresh madness indeed.

Think of the amazing snaps you’ll have at summer music festivals and local dogging parties.

 

The New Apple iSwiss Knife.

There’s a growing source of irritation aboard HMS Friday recently and it’s all down to those arsing Apple iPhones. They swan about the place like a shiny head boy with a bright eye catching blazer, adorned with special achievement badges and although you can’t help but admire their style a small part of you wants to jam your f@cking thumb in their eye. You could write what the i-Phone can’t do on Adita ‘Romeo’ Dev’s underpants. But now that they’ve dazzled us with their technological abilities these ‘smart’ phones are venturing out into other areas, practical areas and this is where we have to draw the line.

Instead of downloading useful apps for your phone you can now actually physically attach applications to your phone, like this bottle opener which can also open cans…please make this madness stop? The opener, of course, comes with a down loadable app which will keep count of how many bottles and cans you’ve opened and allow you to play music or customised sounds every time you use the opener. It’s our humble opinion that the only sound sample you should hear before you even think about buying this gizmo is this.
