HTC One for Sprint gets its KitKat update a little early

HTC must feel that it’s best to underpromise and overdeliver. While the company told American One owners that they wouldn’t get KitKat on time, the 535MB Android upgrade is already available on Sprint; eager subscribers just have to check for an …

Rumored Nokia Normandy prototype surfaces on Twitter, reveals little

Make A Little You With Shapify.me

model1

Arctec, makers of high-end 3D scanners for industrial clients, have added a little whimsy to your day with Shapify.me, a service that can scan and print your body in full color, allowing you to make a little mini me of your very own.

The system uses the Kinect Sensor – it works with either the Kinect for Windows or Kinect for Xbox 360 – and allows you to scan your entire body using a PC or Mac. The software then lets you download the scan for 3D printing or order the print for $ 59. Prints are available in the US and Canada but more countries are coming soon.

Capturing the image is a little tricky – there are a lot of lighting issues and lots of turning – but the service seems to be outputting smooth, usable scans. Arguably these aren’t as beautiful as some other services we’ve seen including the incredible Twinkind but because you’re depending on a fairly low resolution system like the Kinect and limited processing power it’s easy to forgive some of the elisions in the model.

I’ve learned that 3D scanning is hard and anything that makes it easier is a good thing. While it might be a little late to give a Shapify figurine to your dear old mother and father, it’s definitely a fun little toy and could be an interesting tool for home hobbyists. Besides, who doesn’t want a 3D selfie?

This Week On The TechCrunch Droidcast: So Many Google Play Editions, So Little Time

droidcast17-banner

After a brief hiatus, we’re back with a very special episode of the TechCrunch Droidcast. Recorded with both myself and Chris Velazco in the flesh in our studio offices in sunny, warm (actually freezing, dark) Toronto, Canada this week is a pleasantly brief sojourn into the world of Android.

We deal mostly with the new Google Play edition devices launched this week, which include a stripped down, virtually stock OS running on Sony’s Experia Ultra Z (though it loses the ‘Xperia’ for some reason) and the LG G Pad 8.3-inch Android tablet. Google’s going a little wild with those ‘blessed’ devices, which have the benefit of having all manufacturer bloatware stripped out, to show just how dumb OEM skins actually are.

We invite you to enjoy weekly Android podcasts every Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. Eastern and 2:30 p.m. Pacific (generally speaking), in addition to our weekly Gadgets podcast at 3 p.m. Eastern and noon Pacific on Fridays. Subscribe to the TechCrunch Droidcast in iTunes, too, if that’s your fancy.

Intro music by <a href=”http://www.kriskeyser.com/”>Kris Keyser</a>.

Having spent the last year using the PlayStation 4 at trade shows and press events, we’ve got a fairly good idea of how games look and play on the rhombus-shaped game box. The questions that remain largely revolve around living with the device: can it quickly switch between apps and games? how …

They’re Moving!: Beautiful Little Animation Of Calvin & Hobbes Dancing Around In The Woods

calvin-and-hobbes-dancing.jpg This is a short video created by Youtube user adamanimates of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes dancing around in the woods. It’s good. Plus I liked the song. The whole thing really brightened my day. And I needed that because my day has been pretty dark so far. I don’t want to go into details, but I’m bleeding and if it doesn’t stop soon I might even have to go to the hospital. “WHERE’S THE REST OF YOUR ARM?!” Like I said, pretty dark so far. Hit the jump for the video. You’ll like it, I promise.
