  • 3DPalooza - 3D Robotics Shows Us the Iris+ Quadcopter

    I love quadcopters, as you know if you've been with us for any length of time. Some one of the highlights of 3DPalooza for me was getting to play with - and even fly - the Iris+ from 3D Robotics. This is a big, serious quadcopter rigged with a gimbal to carry a GoPro camera. And you can fly it from an Android tablet! You can just trace a flight path on a map, and away you go! http://3drobotics.com/ http://3drobotics.com/iris/

  • 3DPalooza - How DotProduct Uses Android Tablets for Handheld 3D Scanning

    One of the things we saw during 3DPalooza that got us really excited was the way the guys from DotProduct were doing handheld high-resolution 3D scanning at the GeekHouse using systems built around off-the-shelf Android tablets. They use the processing power of modern tablets to process the scans in real time, right on the Android device!

  • Review: BrydgeAir Keyboard for iPad Air and Air 2

    Tablets are great and can be a good way to ditch the laptop when you're trying to travel light, but there's one big problem - typing full documents on a screen just isn't as easy as on a keyboard. Enter the BrydgeAir, a keyboard for iPads that turns your tablet into a easy-to-carry productivity machine. We've told you about the Brydge before (we loved it), but that was for the iPad2, 3, or 4 form factor. The BrydgeAir brings that same great usability to the iPad Air and Air 2.

  • 3DPalooza - Reality Computing with Autodesk Software

    A couple of weeks back we had our big blowout we called 3DPalooza. One of the central focuses was the complete 3D scanning of the Geek House. We talked with the guys from Autodesk to see how their software allows inputs from a number of different sources to be brought together to make one awesome 3D model! It's a whole new world they're calling "reality computing". We'll be getting the Geek House 3D walkthrough up on our site soon - watch for it!
