Bellus 3D takes cameras to a whole new level, or to be more specific, they've created a 3D face camera for mobile devices that scans 500,000 points on your face in high resolution. Once scanned, the company sends you a file that can be transferred to a 3D printer to be fabricated into a mask. This is made possible with the infrared scanners on its camera, and once the Bellus 3D app is launched, you basically position your head within an outlined parameter, look ahead, turn to the left when asked, and then again to the right. You can see and zoom in on every wrinkle, pore and hair follicle in full color on the scans. Click here to view the first image in this week's things that look like other things gallery.

On average, an ambulance takes 10-minutes to arrive at the scene of an accident - much too late to be of help in some cases. The Ambulance Drone seeks to change that by bridging the gap between call and the time it takes for help to arrive. Inside, it comes equipped with a defibrillator, CPR aids and a host of medicines. Since it doesn't have to del with traffic, the drone can arrive as quickly as 1-minute after being dispatched. Continue reading for another video and more information.
Aside from its 400-horsepower engine, the 2018 Jaguar F-Type 400 boasts Configurable Dyamics, which let drivers adjust the performance of the vehicle depending on conditions.

Think of the Light Phone as an anti-smartphone, since it can only send calls and receive them. You won't be able to text, connect to social media, and take photos with it. In fact, Light's founders Joe Hollier and Kai Tang say the device is designed to be used "as little as possible," in hopes to cure smartphone addiction. It works independently of your phone plan, but Light's technology enables you to keep the same number. The phone has six modes: Standby (nothing is lit up); On (shows the time and a number pad); Info (shows battery level + service bars); Speed dial (shows the names of pre-programmed contacts); Incoming (shows you who's calling); Connected (you'll see the timer on your call). Once available, it's expected to be priced at $150 with the SIM and Light's software platform costing $5 per month.

AirBar literally adds a touchscreen to your MacBook Air, or any other laptop, up to 15.6" in size. It basically broadcasts invisible light-waves to detect movement, enabling you to use just about anything as a stylus, including chopsticks, a paintbrush to even your fingers (with or without gloves). You can use these tools to touch, navigate, zoom, swipe, or even paint on your laptop's display. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and information.
Energy Observer is a ship unlike any other, since it draws energy from nature without damage or waste. It combines various sources of renewable energies to produce its own hydrogen from seawater and store it on board. "If there's no sun or wind, or if it's night, stored hydrogen - generated by electrolysis powered by the solar panels and two wind turbines - will take over. We are going to be the first boat with an autonomous means of producing hydrogen," said Victorien Erussard of France. Click here to view the first image in this week's art of trolling gallery.

Razer's Project Ariana is similar to Microsoft's Illumiroom in that it's a projector that's designed to complement, not replace, your main display. The system combines an ultra-wide 155° fish-eye lens and a pair of 3D-sensing cameras to "paint" in-game footage, as well as related images (like weather effects) and colored lights, via Razer's Chroma lighting system, to provide an ultra immersive gaming experience.
