HP Sprout Pro G2

By: Richard Mitchell

HP visited Duke’s Technology Engagement Center (TEC) this morning to provide an overview of their Sprout Pro G2. Describing the Sprout is a tricky thing to do considering the unique capabilities of the device. As HP was quick to mention, there really isn’t anything else like Sprout on the market, and until seeing it function, […]

Wacom’s MobileStudio Pro

By: Mich Donovan

Following up on Wacom’s Companion series, the MobileStudio Pro doubles down on power and capability. If you’re looking for the functionality of a tablet-aided desktop on the go, it’s an incredible tool. Even more so than the Companion, the MobileStudio Pro feels like a tablet built for professional designers, and less so one for the average […]

Glasses Free 3D Makes Debut At Duke

By: Stephen Toback

We’ve been talking about glasses free 3D televisions for the last few years (NAB 2014 Report) and have seen good advances in phones and viewfinders for 3D cameras. I was excited to hear at this year’s NAB that the monitor that had been shown as a prototype was finally in production. Dimenco provided us with […]

World Maker Faire in NYC

By: Chip Bobbert II

I was able to attend the World Maker Faire this year in NYC. It was an excellent and well attended event. As one might imagine there was a focus on 3D Printing, Laser Cutting, CNC routing and other fabrication technologies. We say products from brand new start-ups to seasoned industry veterans like Durham’s own ShopBot. […]

Oculus Rift Checks In At The Marriott

By: Stephen Toback

Mark McGill has brought his Oculus Rift in for demos over the last few weeks. I was impressed with this form of interactivity but also questioned if this would ever become “main stream” or at least more widely accepted given the physical constraints of the system. As we start to really look at glasses free 3D […]
