Tech Tuesday: North America’s largest 3d printed object & an autotracking camera for solo adventurers

This week on News 1130 in Vancouver, I talked about:

  • North America’s largest 3d printed object comes to Vancouver: The Rygo exhibit will be unveiled at VanDusen Gardens on Thursday, July 26 and is currently the largest object ever produced by a 3d printer in North America. JF Brandon worked with designer Bathsheba Grossman to print the artwork using Enrico Dini’s D-Shape, the largest 3D printer of its kind, measuring 6 x 6 x 8 meters (20 x 20 x 27 ft), the Rygo has been 3D printed 2 meters (6.5 feet) tall in stone (source)
  • Autotracking Camera: The Soloshot is a new camera mounting system meant for people that want to be able to film themselves doing various things like surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, etc. Using a tripod mounting system and a wireless armband transmitter, the SoloShot will move just about any camera (point & shoot or DSLR) and stay pointed in the direction of the armband from a distance of up to 2000ft allowing you to record yourself in nearly any type of situation remotely (source)
