A plastic sculpture shaped like a jagged donut now holds the title of first piece of art to be made in space. As abstract as it looks, the piece is a 3D waveform of a human laugh, captured through a project by Israeli contemporary artist, Eyal Gever.
Eagles and other predators may be known for their sharp vision, but that claim really applies to the middle of their visual field – an area that corresponds to their fovea, which is the center of their eyes’ retina. This means that while things in the periphery of their vision are of average clarity, the subject that they’re watching is in very sharp focus. Scientists have now applied that same concept, called foveated imaging, to a miniature camera
A couple of years ago, a group of entrepreneurs successfully Kickstarted a little something known as the Chameleon Pen . In a nutshell, it’s an art pen that changes color tone as you draw – for example, a green Chameleon Pen’s ink progressively goes from light green to dark green as the ink is applied to the paper
At CES this week, Dell unveiled a few nifty ideas for work and play. The most eye-catching, especially for artists, is the Dell Canvas, a digital artist’s workstation in the same realm as the Surface Studio that Microsoft showed off a few months ago. Also on show was a 32-inch monitor packing in 8K resolution, a wirelessly chargeable 2-in-1, and a refresh of the company’s other laptops, all-in-ones (AIOs) and monitors.
2016 was an incredible year for 3D printing enthusiasts. Let’s look back at what happened during the last 12 months here at i.materialise. Join us for our year in review! January: Hollow 3D Printed Ceramics Lamps We’re no strangers to ceramic 3D prints, but these eight 3D prints left us stunned once again.
Paco Raphael crosses the line between art and design and aligns artwork with industrial production. More than focusing only on his “canvas on the wall” the Dutch designer pushes art into the three-dimensional space with his outstanding collection of large-scale 3D printed deer. Paco Raphael is a visual artist and designer from Amsterdam.

Despite Elon Musk’s ambition to make humanity a multi-planetary species , most of us will probably never get to go into space. But thanks to an art project by Israeli artist Eyal Gever, your legacy could end up living forever in the deep, cold reaches of space – in the form of a 3D-printed sculpture of your laugh.
Sea monsters exist – at least in 3D-printed form. Meet Amy Doran , the designer of a stunning sea creature that was made with a mix of clay sculpting, 3D scanning, 3D modeling and printing with i.materialise’s biggest resin printers.
