5 Wish List-Worthy Technologies

It’s no secret that the Tocci team loves technology. Our day-to-day focuses on the practical and current, but we always keep an eye on the future. Recently, we checked-in to see what technologies people can’t stop dreaming about.

01 Holographic Projection

We know we can send a model to , and they’ll send us a holograph in return. But that isn’t enough. We want portable. We want instant. We want a version of . Is that so much to ask?

02 3D Printing

3D printing has been around for some time, but in 2013, it made significant strides towards feasibility. Moises Berrun is intrigued by ; in his words: “it would feed my tinkering impulse.”

03 Reality Capture

Reality capture is so critical to document existing or constructed conditions. Typically we perform laser scans, but then spend a significant amount of time converting the scan to a model. Moises Berrun has another idea:

I would like to get my hands on . It’s a 3d scanning solution that supposedly automatically creates a digital model of the scanned object or space. I think it could be very useful for documenting mechanical rooms and their labyrinth of pipes. This is valuable when as-builts for older buildings are non-existent or incorrect.

04 3D Vision…Sans Glasses

It’s a little awkward to have to wear 3D glasses for 3D vision. Ashwin Ramesh found someone working on a way around this. Although Ashwin  admits that it might be a little awkward with rows of people .

05 Developers, Developers, Developers

Despite the amazing (although certainly not all inclusive) list above, current technology doesn’t fulfill our entire vision. As a result, some people on our team are looking to create technologies:

  • Ashwin Ramesh is planning on exploring  to see if VDC can leverage the virtual game development tool
  • Jovial Sanon is getting into iPad App development and design to improve model interaction on job sites.
  • Later this year, Piece Reynoldson, VDC Manager, will be attending .

What is in your 2013 Technology Plan?
