The title is a bit confusing but yes, you got it right: Apple wants to bring technology similar to the 3D Touch for its Home button and fingerprint reader. The Cupertino company has in fact filed a patent that provides for a new type of Home button, equipped with sensors that allow different levels of interaction. Specifically, the document shows the presence of a resistive material under the Touch ID, capable of perceiving multiple pressure levels. For the moment there is no news about a possible implementation of this patent, but it is a technology that is really easy to…

3D printers are amazing. No one can dispute that. However, by and large, most people who use 3D printers as a hobby are making… smaller items. Dungeons & Dragons figures, small gadgets, etc. But one person decided to bet on his 3D printer. Made by 3d_coasters on YouTube (thanks Gizmodo), over 900 hours of work went into creating this little monster. On a 1/35 scale to actual roller coasters, hundreds of hours were spent printing the 2900+ parts, plus every hour just modeling and making the parts as well. Take a look at the 3D printed roller coaster here: In…

It was 18 years ago when the maxillofacial surgeon Pedro Martinez Seijas (1968) came across 3D printing in his career. It was 2001 and with a copy of a scan in hand, he thought: “If I could have this in my hands, I could operate on the patient sooner.” From there he began to investigate and, since then, almost 300 patients have passed through his hands using the 3D tool in different ways. 3D printing or additive manufacturing It is part of the well-known IV Industrial Revolution. It is applied in different areas and health is one of them, where…

The well-known developer / hacker Hamza Sood back to being talked about, this time for being able to use the Peek and Pop on the iPad Pro, which notoriously does not support 3D Touch. How did he do it, you ask? Simple, through the Apple Pencil: performing a small hack to iOS 9, the developer used the stylus pressure sensors to send the same input to the operating system that it would receive if it were equipped with a 3D Touch display. Before deceiving yourself further, it is not something that everyone can achieve (indeed!), But if you want the…

There is not only virtual reality and augmented reality in the future of technology. A field in which various companies are experimenting is that of holograms, especially three-dimensional, which are usually created by making two laser beams interfere with the light. Business Korea announces that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) received, on December 27, the approval for a patent concerning the creation of 3D holograms using specific light waves. Unfortunately the information ends here (we could not find the documents the source talks about), but it is still enough to make us dream and hope, perhaps, in…

The absence of this technology could be attributed to gods production problems, which will prevent Apple from mounting displays with three levels of pressure on the new reference tablets. Speaking of the dates, however, if the forecast turns out to be correct,…
