    BMW taps Unreal Engine for a mixed reality vehicle development process

    BMW is combining the best of real and virtual worlds to make the process of creating new car designs as quick and painless as possible. The carmaker has tapped Unreal Engine’s rendering capabilities to generate virtual surfaces and objects overtop 3D-printed prototype vehicle pieces, letting designers and engineers preview how various materials or surfaces will look on a final… Read More

    Charge trucks tackle race tracks

    Charge, an Oxford, UK-based electric vehicle company, is testing its prototypes in the most time-honored way: at the races. Since the dawn of the automotive age, inventors and manufacturers have taken their cars to the track to test their capabilities. These trucks aren’t racing, though; they’re the official support vehicles for the Formula E all-electric racing series. Formula… Read More

  • Augmented reality makes prototyping easy on Shaper’s Origin CNC machine

    Augmented reality makes prototyping easy on Shaper’s Origin CNC machine

    Innovations in 3D printing have done their part to inspire maker-culture. We print, or at-least try to print, drones, human organs, and even medications. Additive techniques are practical and accessible for much of the prototyping process. However, just because we can print synthetic drugs with 3D printers, doesn’t mean we can print something as simple as a walnut radio. Shaper, a… Read More

    Proto.io Lets You Create Mobile App Prototypes And See Them Run In A Native App

    Proto.io, a mobile prototyping platform that’s been organically growing its footprint over the last couple of years, is now offering a fairly notable new feature: In addition to being able to easily build mobile app prototypes using its service, it has just launched native iOS and Android apps that let you view your prototypes in the most realistic manner possible. What that means for… Read More

  • Early Apple iPhone Developer Prototype Looked More Like An iPad, Had Ethernet And Serial Ports

    Early Apple iPhone Developer Prototype Looked More Like An iPad, Had Ethernet And Serial Ports

    Apple has been working on the iPhone since long before it hit the market in 2007, and today a new prototype has come to light that shows how it might have looked if they’d rushed it to market earlier. The 2005 internal prototype is pictured in photos obtained by Ars Technica, from an unnamed former Apple employee. Read More

    Pitching App Ideas? AppGyver Delivers Mobile App Prototypes In Minutes, No Technical Know-How Needed

    Although there are a ton of DIY app builders out there, the majority of them are either designed for those with a little bit of coding know-how, or involve drag-and-drop components which are used to create a basic app or mobile website. A new startup called AppGyver (rhymes with MacGyver!) is different. It’s a mobile app prototyper, not an app builder, and it’s aimed at those who… Read More

  • Modu Android Prototype Leaked

    Modu isn’t well known in the US, but they make a tiny handset that’s been out for a while. While their current product offering has been criticized for being outdated and clunky, the good news (at least for them) is that they have developed a new Android based handset which should be available in the near future. That handset leaked, and while it’s got some strange things… Read More

  • Sony 360-Degree display coming to America

    Not a huge update here, but that 360-Degree display that we told you about last year is going to be on display is the US. The display is still a prototype, but it is an excellent proof of concept. It’ll be interesting to see what Sony does with the technology. [via The Awesomer] Read More

  • Prototype single lens camera sees the world in 3D

    Most 3D imaging requires cameras with multiple lenses, but an Italian firm has discovered a way to allow a single lens to see three dimensional images using pulsed laser energy. Read More
