During the past week it has been revealed the several large Silicon Valley company’s have been sharing data with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). That agency has increasingly been exploring and developing programs that transcend the security and privacy boundary. Facebook, Google, Apple, Yahoo and Microsoft are all included in the sharing of information, [...]

Slowly over the last year or so there has been an evolution taking place in the infrastructure, measurement and image analysis space. 3D has been a key driver, although not the only one. It would appear that many company’s are now adapting to new innovations in cloud capability and developing more integrated solutions. In some [...]

Ruf Blacklock used Natural Sketch to create this video of the Evolution of the F1 car. The racer changes shape over time and it is interesting to see the developing changes. Evolution of the F1 Car from Ruf Blacklock on Vimeo.

Recent European research with 700 European students and 47 teachers shows that students make exceptional gains when being taught using 3D techniques. Fully 86% of the students showed improvement in learning and nearly doubled their rate of learning. As well, they remembered more. “The results of the research indicate a marked positive effect of the [...]

CastAR augmented reality glasses are an interesting technology due to the different approach that they use. The glasses project content onto a surface that users then experience. This can include more than 1 user and several persons wearing the glasses, standing before the projection screen will gain a unique view of the 3D projection. So [...]

I would suggest that so called Big Data is dependent upon computing systems and applications that not only are capable of computational abilities, but are also geo-capable of multi-disciplinary, geo-refrepresentative of processes. erenced spatial analysis. Big Data questions occur where overlaps arise. They are 3D and reality based and lend themselves to geostatistical analysis. Simulation [...]

Are surveyors and geographic information systems (GIS) professionals missing the boat when it comes to architectural design? As architects expand their use of computational and measurement tools for building design purposes, it appears that their focus is on the generation of design alternatives – lesser on the practice of measurement. Although building and infrastructure analysis [...]

Many speakers at the smartgeometry 2013 event in London, UK last week spoke about the changing nature of design. Computers are now contributing toward design in new and previously unknown ways. The rate at which different designs can be generated, tested and decided upon, is accelerating. But it is not only shape and form that [...]

In the architecture, urban planning and infrastructure sectors there is rising interest in supporting designs and plans with real-world numbers. Although these software provide geometry capabilities for adding and editing designs, the connection between geometry and design is as much or more highly valued because it is on that basis that contacts are developed, construction [...]

Students at smartgeometry 2013 in London displayed their workshop projects (images below) and answered questions about their projects. Under the ‘Constructing for Uncertainty’ theme, 10 project groups worked on their individual projects. Groups included: (A)Synchronous Streams Adaptive Structural Skins Computer Vision & Freeform Construction Digital Intuition & Prediction PAD Projections of Reality Robotic FOAMing Thermal Reticulations Transformational [...]
