3-D Printing in Glass

Glass sculpture or studio glass is always referred as the modern use of glass as an artistic medium to produce sculptures. Based on the ancient history, the glassware has been developed in Egypt and Assyria since 5,000 years ago. Murano is best known as the birthplace of modern glass art. Normally, the main purpose of glass objects created is to make a sculptural or decorative statement. The prices of fine glass sculpture are ranging from a few bucks to tens of thousands of dollars! A team of engineers and artists working from the University of Washingtons’s Solheim Rapid Manufacturing Laboratory has found the way to create glass objects, by using a conventional 3-D printer. The research team is giving the project name as “The Vitraglyphic Process”, which is a follow-up to the Solheim’s Laboratory success last spring printing with ceramics! Mr. Mark Ganter, a UW professor of mechanical engineering and …

New 6D Holograms Will Shock You Off!

Are you still living in the world, where everything seems to be perfect in the 3 Dimensional? Well, then you must be a very outdated person, as the technology is more advancing than you’re thought here! Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the world of “6D Holograms” and this is far beyond your imagination! Technically, these 6D holograms is a small, 7 x 7 pixels display, and it will respond to changes in light and the viewer’s direction as well! Since it’s still in the early development phase, the researchers expected that in the next two to three years, they could be scaled it up and create some of the most fascinating images! Ramesh Raskar, one of the scientists and researchers at MIT who helped in the development of this project, said that they are the first researcher group that able to build a display that changes with lighting and in …
