From Popular Science – New Technology, Science News, The Future Now: Watch This Pen Draw Objects In Midair [Video]

We catch up with the brains behind the 3Doodler, a plastic-melting pen that lets you draw 3-D objects in midair.

Even the best consumer 3-D printers require a whole lot of brains to create the simplest plastic tchotchke. Toymaker Maxwell Bogue doesn’t think creative expression in three dimensions should be so hard, so he created the 3Doodler: a plastic-melting pen that lets you draw objects in midair.

We’ve covered the pen before. But we still wanted to catch up with Bogue at the recent 2013 Kairos Global Summit on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange to see just what this little gadget could do:

From Droid Life: Samsung Galaxy S4 to Utilize New “Eye-Scrolling” Feature

With the introduction of last year’s Galaxy S3, Samsung showed the world how smart a smartphone could be. With Smart Stay, the S3′s camera would see if your eyes were open and focused on the device, and would determine if it should dim its display or not. Fancy, right? Well, Samsung is looking to take that a step further with a new eye-scrolling feature that is said to come equipped on the Galaxy S4. 

With eye-scrolling, once a user has reached the bottom or end of a page, the device will automatically scroll onward to the next section of whatever it is you are reading/looking at. According to the source, it was not yet determined if this feature would be shown off at the March 14 Unpacked event, but the device’s software enhancements were most definitely in the front seat compared to hardware this year.

As for me, I don’t have any of the Smart features enabled currently on my Note 2, but this one is definitely something I would like to try out.
