PadGadget’s DIY iPad Project Spotlight: Comic Book Themed iPad Stand

DIY Comic Book Stand 1

In honor of the San Diego Comic Convention that is taking place July 24 – 27, we’ve got a very simple DIY iPad stand that uses up those old 1990s comics you have stored in a moldy box in your basement.

New iPad Gadget and Compatible App Renders Anything in 3-D, Anything


Tech startup Occipital recently successfully funded a camera that attaches to the iPad and takes 3-D images of objects. It, along with the compatible app make it possible for you to turn anything into a 3-D object that you can then upload into a cloud storage and use for video game avatars, 3-D printing, and more.

Using the Structure Sensor, users scan every angle of an object in order to stitch them together to create a virtual 3-D object. The itSeez3D is an app that reads the information from the Structure Sensor and processes it into the desired object. The captured images are then uploaded to a 3-D compatible cloud storage, like Sketchfab, so they can be used for things like video game avatars, 3-D printer models, and more.
