This Clever Newspaper Ad Hides a 3D Kitchen in the Classifieds

As far as newspaper ads go, the classifieds are an especially boring section of tiny text and identically spaced columns. But it doesn't always have to be so! This ingenious little ad for Corona's kitchens by Colombia-based designer Felipe Salazar plays with the geometry of classified ads. An entire kitchen, complete with gas hood and stove, pops right out at you. You can't do that with Craigslist. Read More >>

Train for Surgery Using Immersive 3D Holograms of Corpses

Computer-generated models are starting to let researchers and students peer into the body without needing a real human stretched out before them. Virtual dissection tables have been built at places like Stanford and the University of Calgary. Now, University of Michigan computer scientists and biologists have taken the technology another step forward, using projectors, joysticks and 3D equipment to build a floating holographic human that users can dissect, manipulate, and put back together as they wish.

£9,500 Talking Robot Uses Your Friend's Face to Add HORRIFYING TOUCH to Voice Calls

SociBot-Mini is a weird little desktop robot, one with a face that's designed to be part display.

That won't in anyway distress children and animals. Read More >>

3D Scanning Saved These Ancient Footprints Just Before They Washed Away

In May 2013, a storm uncovered these ancient footprints on an English beach. At over 800,000 years old, they're the oldest human ancestor footprints ever found outside of Africa. The storm that revealed them soon washed them away too, but scientists have been studying the footprints for months after the fact, thanks to 3D imaging. Read More >>

This Screen Can Display 2D and 3D Images at the Same Time

With most 3D TVs you'll see a headache-inducing double image unless you're wearing a pair of polarising or shutter glasses. But researchers from the Shirai Lab at Japan's Kanagawa Institute of Technology have developed a remarkable screen that can display both 2D and 3D images at the same time, without the eye-straining side effects.
