Winter pictures of the test complex in the Moscow region. These very powerful generators are in a half-abandoned condition today and their purpose is clear only for few specialists.

A transparent 3D spatial desktop display prototype by Jinha Lee, first public in February 2013 (can’t believe I missed this …) - video embedded below:
SpaceTop is a technological and design solution to fuse 2D and spatial 3D interactions in a single desktop workspace. It extends the traditional desktop interface with interaction technology and visualization techniques that enable seamless transitions between 2D and 3D manipulations. SpaceTop allows users to type, click, draw in 2D, and directly manipulate interface elements that float in the 3D space above the keyboard. It makes it possible to easily switch from one modality to another, or to simultaneously use two modalities with different hands. We introduce hardware and software configurations for co-locating these various interaction modalities in a unified workspace using depth cameras and a transparent display. We describe new interaction and visualization techniques that allow users to interact with 2D elements floating in 3D space and present the results from a preliminary user study that indicates the benefit of such hybrid workspaces.
No reason, save for Monday morning.
A Kinect-like 3D sensor for mobile devices, successfully reaches Kickstarter target in a day - video embedded below:
Capture models of rooms, 3D scan objects, play augmented reality games, and develop mobile applications with 3D sensing. The world’s first 3D sensor for mobile devices.
The Structure Sensor gives mobile devices the ability to capture and understand the world in three dimensions.
With the Structure Sensor attached to your mobile device, you can walk around the world and instantly capture it in a digital form. This means you can capture 3D maps of indoor spaces and have every measurement in your pocket. You can instantly capture 3D models of objects and people for import into CAD and for 3D printing. You can play mind blowing augmented reality games where the real world is your game world.
If you’re a developer, Structure gives you the ability to build mobile applications that interact with the three dimensional geometry of the real world for the very first time. You can even launch your app on the App Store!
