In September last year, Finland's MultiTouch revealed an Ultra High Definition 84-inch MultiTaction display at its annual developer conference. Though made available for pre-order a few weeks later, the high resolution, monster cells won't actually go into production until later this year. Meanwhile New Mexico's Ideum has announced that 4K versions of its 55-, 65- and 100-inch multitouch tables and interactive walls will start to ship from later this month.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the entire Dromida line of remote-controlled cars and trucks

We do enjoy getting our hands on remote-controlled vehicles here at Gizmag, because what's not to love about driving a miniature car around? Fortunately for us, Hobbico recently released its new Dromida brand of R/C cars and trucks and was kind enough to send over all three models of the line to compare. Read on for a look at how these low cost, high speed R/C vehicles stack up against each other.  Read More

The production-ready BI V2.0 prototype

3D printing promises that one day we may be able to print out goods in our own homes rather than popping down to the shops or ordering widgets online. But what happens when the printers are able to print themselves? Boots Industries’ BI V2.0 takes a step down that road with a design aimed at self-replication. Currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, the open-source printer is capable of printing its own core components.  Read More

2013 3D Printer Comparison Guide

The 3D printer industry is growing in both the professional and maker markets. With more and more 3D printers diving under the US$4,000 price-point, is it time for you to pick up one of your own? Though the consumer end of the market is still young, business is booming, and this disruptive technology is something that will definitely appeal to many Gizmag readers. That’s why we’ve taken the top desktop 3D printers and lined them up for a side-by-side comparison.  Read More

Samsung's 105-inch Curved UHD TV

Today appears to be the day for jumbo-sized TV announcements. First, we heard that LG will be debuting its 105-inch "world's largest curved UHD TV" at CES. Now, word comes that Samsung is making the same claim about a new TV of its own – with the added boast that it's also the "most curved" UHD TV ever.  Read More

Rather than buy a replacement part from a local hardware store, 3D printing offers up the opportunity to produce what you need at home, when you need it. But what if you have to replace a whole unit? If a project from Cornell University's Creative Machines Lab is any indication, such things may soon be possible. A research team has managed to 3D print the cone, coil and magnet of a loudspeaker, and then use it to throw out sounds from a digital audio player.  Read More

German laser weapons hobbyist Patrick Priebe, the creator of such one-off curiosities as the Iron Man Gauntlet and the Crysis 2-inspired Gauss Rifle, has now gone and made a laser rifle. While it won't bring down a storm trooper or an alien facehugger, it'll make short work of things like wood, Styrofoam and glass.  Read More

Germany-based companies, 3D-Micromac AG, a provider of laser micromachining systems, and EOS GmbH, an e-Manufacturing group, have teamed up to form a new organization dubbed 3D MicroPrint GmbH. The new enterprise is developing a new micro laser sintering technology (MLS) for 3D printing tiny metal components to meet the demands of Makers and professionals alike.  Read More

The ProJet 4500 3D printer, and one of its creations

Although the things that can be done with 3D printers are certainly amazing, many 3D-printed plastic items still have a certain "look" to them. This is largely due to the fact that each item is all one uniform color. That apparently no longer has to be the case, however, as 3D Systems has unveiled its ProJet 4500. The company describes it as "the industry’s only continuous tone full-color plastic 3D printer."  Read More

After developing some innovative ways to add LEDs to wallpaper, and even the backside of televisions, it looks like Philips is setting its sights on lighting the floor beneath our feet as well. The company recently partnered with Desso, a high-quality carpeting producer, to create a new type of carpet embedded with LEDs that can turn any floor space into a customizable lighting array.  Read More
