Article about 2 entries from the Cogswell college students!

Woot! +Chuck Knowledge​ nicely done! (And quoted...)
Cogswell College, a historic, 600-student educational institution offering a unique curriculum fusing Digital Art, Engineering and Entrepreneurship, is very pleased to announce that TWO original apps designed by students of the school have been named as Finalists within Google's 2015 "Project Tango Developer" Contest. These two projects, which are now competing for Grand Prizes against professional developers and companies, were selected among on...

Project Tango + OTOY lightfield demo video at Siggraph!

This is pretty nice use of the motion tracking + OTOY lightfield should make a dramatic and immersive experience...


Has anyone gotten a chance to play with this?

Anyone from the OTOY teams on this board as well?

App Contest prototype is submitted! :)
To The Skies! :)   (Formerly known as "Asteroid Rush")
The world ends Jan 1, 2017, when a giant comet will collide with Earth!  
(The app universe will end then as well...)

You have until then to get all of the 7.3B people off of Earth and onto the Asteroids you have converted into bases.

All asteroids and bases are saved in a global persistent multi-player universe.  You can make your own bases and visit other peoples bases!  
(internet connection required to play)

Get busy, and Get Us Off Of This Rock!!!

Utilizes Motion tracking from Tango to allow you to explore the asteroids in 3D and mine the specific minerals you need to advance.

Let me know what you think! 

Goal 1: Find the nearest Asteroid and Mine it. 
Return to Earth to Sell precious metals to upgrade your ship.
Goal 2: Gather $10,000 USD to upgrade your ships hold by 100 units. (10,000 pts)
Goal 3: Put in ship: 100 Fe, 100 H2O, 50 C and 50 NH3
Travel to and convert an empty Asteroid into a base for humans. (10,000 pts)
Goal 4:Bring Humans from Earth to your bases until the bases are full. (1pt per person migrated)
Note: you must upgrade your ship to 500 spaces free before you can transport people
Make more bases and save the Earth's people.
Goal 5:Scan the area around bases to find more new Asteroids.
Also: Boost burns up your uranium!
Goal 1: Find the nearest Asteroid and Mine it. Return to Earth to Sell prec...

Really beautiful. I have always been fascinated by working with glass....I could easily see a "design your own glassware" store being wildly popular, in the right location.... Too cool!
 
In retrospect, it's obvious that you should be able to 3D print in glass. It's a liquid when heated, can be poured fairly precisely, and solidifies nicely. 

The GIF below gives you a bit of a hint of what it looks like, but if you click through there's an entire video of watching this device in action, and seeing the things it makes. It's strangely hypnotic.

Now I'm just waiting to see future versions which can also blow the glass, not just deposit it...

MIT’s Mediated Matter Group made a video showing off their first of its kind optically transparent glass printing process. It will soothe your soul.

Awesome!
 
wooo!
Last fall, we let you know that Caltech and The Feynman Lectures Website joined forces to create an online edition of The Feynman Lectures on Physics. They started with Volume 1. And now they've followed up with Volume 2 and Volume 3, making the collection complete.

Great alternate to punch on grand. Great local ingredients and respectable crust baked in a coal fired oven. Kid friendly and nice tap selection at the same time.

Fantastic experience. Fantastic service. Fantastic cuts. Fantastic deal. I've been going there since they opened the W.Saint Paul store, and I will keep going there. They cut my hair, and put a smile on face every time. Great all around experience. They also cut my 3 year old son's hair, and put a smile on his face every time. Staff is consistently great with kids and grownups. Best haircut experience in the Twin Cities.
