In­no­va­tion: Grav­ity tablet

Strap on an AR head­set and doo­dle in 3D

Australian T3 - - CONTENTS -

LIKE a 3D Etch-a-sketch, THE grid­DED GLAS sur­face of this pro­to­type slate acts as a set of sim­pli­fied build­ing blocks to form three-di­men­sional sketches. Put on a pair of sup­ported aug­mented re­al­ity glasses, or even an Ocu­lus Rift VR head­set, and you can doo­dle us­ing the sty­lus in vir­tual space, your lay­ered, com­puter-aided de­sign (CAD) draw­ings pop­ping out to be ro­tated, en­larged and edited as you go.

Cre­ated by four in­no­va­tion de­sign en­gi­neer­ing stu­dents at Lon­don’s Royal Col­lege of Art, the patent-pend­ing con­cept utilises the same state-of-the-art Unity en­gine used to cre­ate iOS hit Mon­u­men­tVal­ley’s stun­ning ar­chi­tec­tural lev­els (see p27). But once your cre­ation is ready, just hook the Grav­ity up to a 3D printer and your vir­tual mas­ter­piece be­comes a re­al­ity. Grav­i­tys­, re­lease tbc
