We love the team at Hackrod - they’re doing some interesting things, taking a whole bunch of technology (AI, VR, Generative design, additive manufacturing) and looking for new ways to build, as they put it, some brand new cool shit.

We wrote about them last year (the story is here) and Mouse was kind enough to keynote our US event last autumn, with the good news: he’s set to come and tell his story at DEVELOP3D Live in Warwick in March this year, too.

In the meantime, the Hackrod crew has just launched its crowd equity campaign - so if you fancy taking a prospective punt on these lunatics, then you can (starting at $100).

The Vive Pro features a resolution of 2,880 x 1,600 (1,440 x 1,600 per eye), a 78 percent increase over the original Vive

Virtual Reality (VR) is about to get a bit more realistic and less pixelated thanks to the Vive Pro, an enhanced version of the popular head mounted display that is designed for VR enthusiasts and enterprise users.

VR is also set to go cable free with HTC Vive unveiling its Vive Wireless Adaptor that works with both the original Vive and the Vive Pro.

The big news about the Vive Pro is that the resolution of the dual-OLED displays has gone up to 2,880 x 1,600 (1,440 x 1,600 per eye) - a 78 per cent increase from the 2,160 x 1,200 (1,080 x 1,200 per eye) resolution of the current Vive.

3D Systems has teamed up with Kohler’s Kallista bathroom hardware group to develop a new product that it claims couldn’t have been easily manufactured any other way.

The minimalist Grid products are built by 3rd Dimension, using its 3D Systems ProX DMP 320 direct metal production system in a high-quality stainless steel 316 powder material named 3D Systems LaserForm 316L.

“Designers usually need to consider a manufacturing process and they have to design around that process,” said Kallista design studio manager Bill McKeone.

Intel shrinks processor by combining Intel Core CPU and AMD Radeon Vega GPU in a single package

Powerful 3D laptops and 2-in-1s are set to become thinner and lighter (and desktop PCs smaller) thanks to a new Intel technology that combines an Intel Core CPU and an AMD Radeon Vega GPU in a single package.

The new 8th Gen Intel Core processor with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics features a semi-custom AMD graphics chip with fast HBM2 memory that is powerful enough for 3D games and VR. The CPU and GPU communicate with each other at high-speed thanks to Intel’s EMIB interconnect technology.
