Like that decor: reverse image search of interiors - This iOS app from image retrieval company Superfish allows users to use pictures of furniture, lamps, etc. and show where that item or similar items is available. The app can use images from the web or taken by a mobile device. The app is free and is currently available for iOS devices only.
Spaxels: 3D flying light pixels - The Ars Electronica Futurelab has been furthering development on a different conception of the pixel. Called ‘Spaxels’ (for space + pixels,) these physical pixels exist as a series of quad copters with integrated LED lighting.
Visits: adding time to location visualization - A development group based out of the University of Calgary in Canada have devised an application that graphically illustrates the amount of time your mobile or other device has spent in various locations based on Google maps, Flickr collections or Openpaths datasets. It also enables users to share the visualized data on social media platforms, allowing others to get a unique impression of an event, vacation, or business trip. The app is browser based and does not retain any of the private data it processes.
WirePrint: 3D wireframe printing - For all their potential for revolution in design and manufacture, 3D printers have some drawbacks: they can take a relatively long time to print out models and can be wasteful as many different versions are created and discarded during the design process. WirePrint aims to address these issues by printing out in 3D space.
