Here’s a look at some of the top trending technologies for 2017 with a few unashamed sci-fi references to go with them. It is an interesting time, with many of the highlighted technologies having huge crossover potential, leading to headlines such as Unity poaches Uber’s machine learning head to tackle AI in AR/VR and Google’s AI Can Now Translate Between Languages It […]
It is a fascinating time for VR developers and artists seeking new mediums, of which there is no shortage in Brighton. At the VR lab launch, which was part of the Brighton Digital Festival, I recognised musicians, mixed media artists, programmers, gamers, and representatives of companies exploring commercial and training applications. That is the beauty of VR, it is an open […]
Virtual Reality has a growth curve pointing straight towards future consumer adoption. The most interesting developments are still happening on the periphery, and the VR scene is having its moment in Brighton.

To take one pound of equipment into outer space costs around $10,000, according to Autodesk’s director of strategic research. It doesn’t take an accountant to figure out why governments are already ploughing swathes of cash into researching the application of 3D printing in a zero gravity environment.
Developing Dreams have joined up with an incredibly skilled team to put forward an expression of interest for a funding proposal to the Technology Strategy Board. It contains a lot of great ideas and potential directions on making the most of 3D print technology.
If you think that 3D printing is just about making tiny trinkets from expensive source material then this one is for you.
Browser-based 3D is taking a giant leap forward thanks to a technology called WebGL. It isn’t fully supported by Internet Explorer or Apple ios yet (though jailbreakers on ios have ways and there is reportedly an Apple hack).
