Check out this great project from Dutch artist Sander Veenhof and designer Joris van Tubergen which combines 3D printing and augmented reality, Ultimarker:
Both 3D printing and augmented reality are seen as the two most impactful and radical innovations of our time. Thanks to these techniques, we now to live in a true DIY world. Want something? Make it! Be it not ‘for real’, then virtual.
Although the techniques share a similar vision, they are opposites as well. Whereas augmented reality is instant and infinitely customizable, 3D printing takes time but the output is a ‘truly’ physical manifestation. But what is the result when both are combined?
Check the Ultimarker video to see what we mean!
