Things That Have Been Restored Thanks To Modern Technology.

Broken Bones
Klutzes of the world rejoice, because itchy casts may be a thing of the past! Using a 3D printer, designer Jake Evill was able to create the Cortex — a lightweight, open cast that is built to fit. And the best part? It’s showerproof.

The Prado’s Mona Lisa.
In 2012, infrared reflectography and x-rays gave us a glimpse beneath the surface of one of the most famous paintings in the world. Researchers were not only able to uncover more details in the painting, but also figure out that the Museo del Prado’s copy of the Mona Lisa was painted by someone who most likely sat right next to Leonardo da Vinci and imitated his brushstrokes.

Coral reefs
Due to pollution and extensive damage, many of earth’s coral reefs have suffered. Luckily, divers and scientists are now able to use a special epoxy that glues new pieces of lab-grown coral to the old.

Episodes of Dr. Who
By tracking records of shipments made to Africa, BBC was able to recover 11 previously lost episodes of Dr. Who. They have since been remastered and are currently available on iTunes.

Archaic beers
Now you can actually drink like the Romans. Bimolecular archaeologists and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery took a chemical analysis of 2,700-year-old drinking vessels discovered in the tomb of King Midas and recreated the ale recipe. Cheers!

The FDA has recently approved a bionic ocular implant to aid those suffering from genetic blindness. The Argus II does not cure the defect, but by using a video camera and a pair of glasses to transmit images to the brain, it helps a patient see light and dark images.

Ancient Greek Music
After piecing together clues, deciphering notes, and using a little bit of math, musician Armand D’Angour was able to resurrect music that had been silent for thousands of years. Because of this amazing revelation, we might actually know the song of the Sirens one day.

Using an augmented reality map, visitors to the Natural History Museum were able to get up close and personal with (almost) real-life dinosaurs in 2010. By holding up handheld devices, guests were able to see all different kinds of beasts walking right in front of them.

Tupac Shakur
The world lost a great rapper when Tupac’s life was tragically cut short in 1996. Thanks to some fancy CGI and a little bit of magic (19th-century magic that is), Shakur was able to rock the Coachella stage once again in 2012.

Destroyed photographs
Years ago, when photos were worn out and tattered, we thought they’d stay that way forever. These days, a simple YouTube tutorial and some editing software can help bring them back to life.

GIF Booth – Diesel.

The GIF booth works like a photo booth, going a step further to produce GIF animations instead of photographs.



It uses VVVV technology and a large-format touch-screen interface. Visitors can create animated self-portraits and publish them to Tumblr in real-time. For the flagship store opening in Frankfurt, the GIFs from the booth were also instantly transmitted and displayed in a window installation composed of seven big screens, each individually managed by a Raspberry PI microcomputer.

A Man and Robots Collaborate in Magical Projection Mapping Video – Box.

Forget all the projection mapping you’ve seen before. Nothing compares to this. Bot & Dolly , a design and engineering studio out of San Francisco has just released this astounding video that creates a perfect synthesis between real and digital space, all while projection mapping on a moving surface. The film “Box” below is a live performance, filmed entirely in camera (in other words, no editing was done).


Bot & Dolly created the video by merging a few of their specialties – namely large scale robotics, projection mapping and software engineering. While it may seem like the actor in the video is initially moving each of the rectangular panels, it’s actually the 6-axis industrial robots in the background doing the work. In this way the team at Bot & Dolly are able to perfectly plan where each panel will be in space and time, matching that to the projected imagery. Regardless of how it works, the effect is breathtaking and truly hard to believe (The quote from Arthur C. Clarke at the end of the film is right on the mark!).

Just a Reflecktor – Arcade Fire.


Arcade Fire’s ”Wilderness Downtown” was a massive hit in the music as well as interactive world. “Just a Reflektor” is a worthy follow up: using the latest Google Chrome technology it lets you interact with the music video via your mobile phone.

First you have to simultaneously connect to the site “Just a Reflektor” https://www.justareflektor.com/ via desktop and follow the instructions on how to connect your phone.
Then you can cast a virtual projection on your computer screen by holding your mobile device in front of the computer’s webcam.
Viewers can control all the visual effects in the video by physically moving their smartphone or tablet around them.

3d printed skateboard – Sam Abbott / 3d print uk




Last month 3D Print UK teamed up with CGTrader to host a competition for the best portfolio. The winner was highly creative and skilled artist Sam Abbott. The prize? Abbott was chosen to have his design for a twin tip skateboard printed on a 3D printer. Looking at the final product, you would imagine it was as simple as one big piece, but since the board was longer than the build tray, they had to cut it into 3 sections, and combine it with connector pins to add strength. The skateboard is fully ride-able, but may not be the best for stunts.

Abbott said:
“…. is it ride-able? Yes… but I wouldn’t drop down many sets of stairs on it just yet!”

Check out the video to see the making of the board
