Transmedia Story Stream, the Zynga of ebooks, is a revolutionary platform which blends Facebook video game mechanics with ebooks to allow authors to build, distribute and engage fans in multi-media story worlds. Instead of downloading a static, dead ePub, readers can log onto story worlds that are alive with fans and friendship and earn rewards while reading. Don’t just read a book – play it!

Microsoft debuts 3D printing app for Windows 8.1

On Friday, Microsoft released its 3D Builder app, which allows Windows 8.1 users to print 3D objects, but not much else.

The simple, simplistic, free app from Microsoft provides a basic way to print common 3D objects, as well as to import other files from SkyDrive or elsewhere. But the degree of customization that the app allows is small, so 3D Builder basically serves as an introduction to the world of 3D printing.

Why Creative People Sometimes Make No Sense

Why Creative People Sometimes Make No Sense | Most IN the Post | Scoop.it

Most creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but are often quiet and at rest. They can work long hours at great concentration.

 

Most creative people tend to be smart and naive at the same time. “It involves fluency, or the ability to generate a great quantity of ideas; flexibility, or the ability to switch from one perspective to another; and originality in picking unusual associations of ideas.

The Great Fire of London destroyed huge sections of the capital - and now a group of students has brought the 17th century city back to life.

Video game designers from De Montfort University have painstakingly recreated a 3D street map of London as it would have appeared pre-1666 – the year of the fire.

Their award-winning design includes a virtual fly-through showing the city's tightly-packed streets, filth-trodden cobbles and timber-framed homes, before the flames.

Everyone is already all over this whole 3D printing thing. But 3D painting? It's a much emptier field. GE is experimenting with such a technology called "cold spray" that slowly builds up layers of metal by spraying metal powder at extremely high velocities. Instead of recreating works of art, the process is used to repair worn metal components, adding years or potentially decades to their life span.
