These amazingly 3D looking gifs were created by simply adding two white lines into the image. The illusion is created when an object expands towards the foreground of the image, covering the white lines as if it were in front of them, creating a 3 dimensional effect.
The cover of Unknown Pleasures, the debut album for Joy Division showcases the first ever recording of a black hole pulsar. The image has become iconic in pop culture and has become a statement within fashion design. However, Interaction Design Professor at Hof University Michael Zöllner has created his own 3D Printed Joy Division cover using a 3D printer. Luckily, he’s posted the file for download in MakerBot’s Thingiverse so that you can make your very own copy, too.
Lorenzo Oggiano started his Quasi-Object cycle studies in 2003 and produced them in 2010-2011. Lorenzo used pigment-based inks on Hahnemühle archival paper, in variable dimensions, edition of 3+1 ap. These studies stimulate thought and dialogue on natural forms of life. His 3d renderings were produced between 2008 and 2009 and bring his study to life.
Move aside 3D printers, the MIT Media Labs is rolling out a new 3D computer that features a see through 3D screen that can be easily manipulated with for creating 3D objects. The SpaceTop uses was created by Jinha Lee, with Cati Boulanger, Alex Olwal, and Hiroshi Ishii and allows users to draw and type in a 3d environment and have it processed as a 3D display through a see through screen in front of the user. To find out more about this computer, take a look at the creators website, here.
