AR Technology of the Week: Sketching in 3D

Augmented reality software is now becoming increasingly portable thanks to advances in 3D technology, including 3D printing. Engineering students in London created ‘Gravity’, which allows consumers to design objects in 3D on a tablet-sized plane to create and rotate objects at every angle possible.

“Gravity is a pen and pad that allows users to sketch in 3D space using augmented reality. The cool patent-pending system hardware and software system has gone through several working prototypes and now they are looking to start manufacturing.”

Not only could this development become useful in the design of construction projects using CAD and BIM, but it may also be used in healthcare to build 3D models of pacemakers, for example, or become an essential part of future classroom instruction.

As a consumer, could you picture yourself using the Gravity 3D technology as part of your business or personal projects?
