3D printing appears capable of making a international renaissance in manufacturing. It has the potential to change the supply chain by allowing a increase in circulated (versus centralized) production. If merchandise constituents such as vehicle components can be printed on location, businesses will be less reliant on foreign labor and international boats. In addition, on-demand output capabilities may reduce waste and smaller inventory costs.
On the surface, it may not appear clear how 3D publishing impacts the IT department. Topics like constructing method, supply string of links administration, and international distribution are not normally handled by the CIO. However, CIOs do have a function here, starting by engaging the C-suite in considerations about how 3D printing can advance the enterprise.
The use of computer-aided design/manufacturing for 3D publishing is directed by IT. There will be new data kinds, data forms, and content kinds to assess and organize. Additionally, the IT department will be involved in printer buying conclusions in some pattern based on the programs platpattern in use. IT department expertise will furthermore be required to connect printers to the mesh and allow employees to interface with them.
As IT groups address ways to be engaged in the 3D publishing movement, they should furthermore address how record proved has proven time and again, from health devices to cleansing products, that the growth associated with a new technology (or application of it) should be protected and sustainable to do well.
While 3D printing has numerous advantages, there are also promise dangers, especially for business bosses looking to buy printing gear. These should be assessed as part of an overall approach to risk administration.

LCD Displays has been part of our lives for many years now. A few main downsides of LCD technology are the thickness of glass panes and the light source. However LCD screens, specifically IPS panels produce the most accurate and realistic color available today. The AMOLED or OLED displays are a little better with the contrast ratio, brights and darks are closer to real picture, but the colors tend to be oversaturated and simply inaccurate. That is the exactly the reason you don't see professional photohorgraphers and publishers using OLED displays. As of early 2014, the AMOLED technology is still a flop due to a few unresolved issues, like graininess and more visible pixel (making appearance of low resolution display). This is a big problem for all pentile screes with a sub pixel layout. The latest non pentile sub pixel designs from Samsung failed due to short life span of the unit. In the future it is possible OLED, AMOLED technology will advance, but as of today the LCD tech is a clear winner from photographers, publishers point of view.

These days it is hard to find a camera that doesn't use the CMOS sensor technology. Many think there's no doubt that CMOS is far superior and the discussion has ended. In fact, the debate goes on. CCD and CMOS sensors do the same job of capturing light and converting it to electrical signals resulting in a digital photograph. However there are fundamental differences in design and operation. The CCD technology is more mature and advanced, CMOS is more cost effective and trying to catch up with CCD. Don't get me wrong, both architectures are fine, what really equally matters for any sensor is the size. As of today, larger sensors capture more light, thus producing better results under many light conditions. As I've mentioned in my previous posts, this might change with the advancement of nano technology in the future. But right now the sensor size is all that really makes a difference in output quality when in comes to the sensor comparison. The fight between CMOS and CCD is purely emotional at this stage. Both technologies are useful and got their ups and downs. In CMOS for every pixel there are three MOSFET's (metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors). So you share them between four pixels. CCD relies on charged coupling. CMOS is more suitable for high speed future applications. The CCD however currently used in more commercial applications, where cost is usually not a huge factor. So if you are thinking of purchasing a digital camera and thinking which sensor to pick, don't even worry about it. The major part of your camera buying decision should be the sensors size and lens selection. Both are equally important in digital cameras land.

The recent advancements in mobile photography made a huge leap over the past several years. Most photographers I talked to occasionally use their smartphone devices primarily iPhones as the main camera, simply because it's always with them. And you don't want to miss the one in lifetime shot at the right time and right place, especially if you don't want to carry a heavy and bulky camera with you at the moment. The good news for photographers everywhere, the smartphone cameras are improving with each generation. And the sensor size and image stabilization are a few of the most important aspects of needed improvements. Imagine having a aps-c size sensor in your smartphone or professional camera quality image stabilization on your portable device. With new advances in nanotechnology, this soon will become a reality, possibly within a few years from now. Today, there's a high demand for high quality cameras and optics in the smartphones and the market will respond if manufacturers come up with new designs utilizing the nanotechnology.

When was the last time you've used a personal computer, aka PC. Do you even remember? Personal computer shipments worldwide plummeted again 13.9% in the first quarter, the latest evidence of the collapsing old school computing market. As tablet computers are becoming more powerful and most importantly more useful at the accelerating speeds, the need and demand for PCs in commercial and consumer applications is plummeting even faster. According to the latest research (conducted by several tech publications), for consumers, businesses and yes even some content creators, the tablet and smartphone computers meet their everyday computing needs. Based on certain calculations, I predict that you'll be unable to find any PCs (anything that resembles a desktop or laptop computer) available for sale at least at the big box stores like Best Buy (of course if they make it through this decade) by the year 2020. Just imagine what tablet computers will be able to pull off by the end of this decade. And to be fair it is not the PC manufacturers fault, it's simply the end of era. To all the skeptics out there, just face it, embrace it and replace it. Aren't we suppose to have flying cars by now anyway? Moving on…
