Take 3D Selfies: Bellus3D Face Camera

If you've watched mission impossible, you would notice how they use 3D mask on every sequel they make. Well guess what? It's finally a reality with eerily detailed 3D selfies at CES.


The Bellus3D Face Camera is a mobile device that makes shockingly accurate, full 3D scans of faces. It's a device that clips on to the top of an Android tablet or smartphone, and it can make a realistic, high-resolution image of a person's face in seconds.

It works through a combination of two 1.2 megapixel IR sensors, a 1.2 megapixel color sensor, two IR laser projectors, and a front-facing camera on the tablet (used to help color the final scan)

Did you know? Instagram lets you zoom in on videos and photos

It was just recently I found out that you can actually zoom instagram photos and some some shortcut keys inside the app.


*publishers will now need to upload hi res images :)




You can pinch to zoom on photos and videos in feed, on profiles and on Explore. Dive into an adorable puppy’s smile or into every detail of your friend’s new shirt. 


Over the past six months, you’ve seen many exciting changes come to Instagram, from a new icon to longer videos and even a new way to share everyday moments with Instagram Stories. And as things change, we’re still focused on improving the core parts of Instagram. 





If you tap the Search tab at the bottom of the Instagram interface, you’ll land on the Explore page—a grid of dozens of Instagram photos liked by your friends and followers as well as by all your fellow Instagrammers.

You can tap any photo on the Explore screen to see a full-screen version, but there’s also a way to quickly preview a photo: Just tap and hold it. When you do, a larger version of the image will appear on the screen, and it’ll stay there until you release the image.

If you’re an iOS user, you can push a photo preview up a bit to lock it in place and reveal three options: Like, Comment, and Send as Message (to another Instagram user).

On Android, the process is slightly different: Instead of nudging up a preview image, just slide your fingertip down to one of three options—Like, View Profile, or Share—then release.

ShenZhen: Inside the world's craziest gadget market




In Shenzhen, China lies the world’s greatest electronics market named Huaqiangbei, pronounced huá qiáng běi (sound byte of pronunciation). Huaqiangbei is a Maker’s dream. The market however is not foreigner friendly and requires some local knowledge to navigate.

Located 10 miles from Hong Kong, you may recognize Shenzhen as synonymous with Foxconn.  Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics manufacturer, makes Apple products, Kindles, Playstations, and Wiis to name a few. Most factories are located an hour north of Shenzhen, but they maintain a presence in the form of a stall with sales representatives in Shenzhen’s Huaqiangbei market.
