3D modelling a breeze

A new software program developed by US-based MetaCreations enables users to easily create photo-realistic 3D models from 2D photos or scanned images, says its Australian distributor, Scholastic New Media.

According to the company, Canoma 1.0 ($999 RRP) uses an "image-assisted modelling" approach, simplifying and speeding-up what was once a time-consuming practice to create 3D models.

Canoma allows users to edit images in perspective and create interactive photo-realistic 3D images for use on the Web such as product catalogues and real estate Web sites.

Canoma works seamlessly with MetaCreations' other products such as Kai's Power Tools 5 and 3D modelling and animation programs such as Poser 3 and Ray Dream Studio 5.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
