This is a chance to peek into the future as Nokia and The Nanoscience Centre (Cambridge University) reveal a sneak preview of the technology to be revealed in next decade.

The video came up as a response to and as an entry to the contest called “Design and Elastic Mind” (do check this link, for an amazing collections for ideas of the future) organized by the New York’s “Museum of Modern art“.

Have you tried and failed over and again to convert 2D pictures look 3D? Not fully satisfied with what you got after hours of toil? or may be after paying a lot?

No more fuss to create 3D picture effects out of 2D’s. Here comes a camera which shall take your imaginations in the third dimension. But thy shall have to wait for it to come out of the lab though and into production.

Stanford researchers developing 3-D camera with 12,616 lenses from 3D camera

The camera you own has one main lens and produces a flat, two-dimensional photograph, whether you hold it in your hand or view it on your computer screen. On the other hand, a camera with two lenses (or two cameras placed apart from each other) can take more interesting 3-D photos.


Bug Labs – the LEGO of gadgets

March 19, 2008 2 comments

Have you ever heard or used LEGO® MINDSTORMS™? It lets you design and program real robots that do what you want them to. If not here is a demo

A New York City based startup named Bug Labs is now promising the same power to the minds with innovative designs in electronics/gadgets.

Bug base and modules

BUG helps you explore the realm of personalized devices and applications, and find ways to solve many of the problems current gadgets can’t.

For example, with BUG, you can easily assemble and program a GPS + digital camera device that automatically publishes geo-tagged photos as a web service. Integrating with an online photo-sharing service like Flickr is only a few more lines of code away, and now you have your own real-time, connected traffic-enabled mobile Webcam!

The platform is designed to enable a collaborative development environment. BUGnet, our online community, is tied in directly to the BUG SDK, which allows developers to connect with others, share information, and jointly build products or services.

Here is a video from CES, 2008. The Bug corner in the event was the center of attraction.
