Sony Unveils 360˚ 3D Display

Interesting prototype announced by Sony recently. Check it out here:

Clearly a long way to go until this has commercial applications. (I don’t really need a glorified desktop digital clock that can show me 360-degree views of Pikachu, but it’s interesting to see things moving in this direction. Has to start somewhere.)

The application to 3D design (for artistic and industrial uses) seems particularly relevant and intriguing to me. Imagine being able to walk around a new car design as you modify it on the fly. Certain things would seem to work well in real 3D space rather than just spinning 3D images on a 2D plane.

And I’m sure, true to Sony form, they’re concocting all the cameras, media and peripherals required to capture imagery for their 3D display. More power to them.

Quests for Quantum

One technology quietly sliding from the realm of science fiction to science fact is quantum computing. This article from Singularity Hub speculates on the fields that stand to be most profoundly impacted by the rise of this powerful new way to process our world.


Interstellar Travel by 2037?

Think about how dramatically different the world is today from 20 years ago. Consider the incredible pace of evolution of the technologies around us. Do that and you may realize that interstellar travel in the next 20 years may not be such a longshot. (It may just look different than you’re envisioning.)
