Turn real objects into 3D models with AI

AI tools changing the game this week

Welcome back! The AI chip gold rush is in full swing. Last week, we learned that Sam Altman is seeking $7 trillion for a new chip company. This week? SoftBank founder Masayoshi Son is reportedly raising $100 billion for a new venture dubbed “Project Izanagi” to compete with Nvidia. These plans are ambitious—but if successful, they could seriously expedite AI development.

P.S. We have a special job listing in today’s edition…keep reading to check it out. :)

MagiScan creates realistic 3D models with your phone


How it works: MagiScan is a mobile app that scans real-world objects and turns them into high-quality 3D models using AI. On both iOS and Android devices, simply use your phone camera to capture an object from all angles. MagiScan scans the object and generates a full 3D replica within seconds. 

Universal use: Once you’ve got your ready-to-use 3D model, you can download it in various file formats (like STL for 3D printing or USDZ for augmented reality applications). MagiScan also offers an extension that lets you export your models directly to the NVIDIA Omniverse and integrate them into any metaverse or game. (Pricing: freemium)

Chat with RTX runs a chatbot directly on your computer

Last week, NVIDIA made a splash with the release of Chat with RTX—a demo app that lets you train an AI chatbot on your own data. It runs locally on your PC, meaning you can use the custom LLM without connecting to the internet. 

How it works: To run Chat with RTX, you’ll need a Windows PC with an RTX 30-series (or later) GPU. Once installed, you can access Chat with RTX from a browser and start feeding it with your data (like PDFs, Word documents, and YouTube video URLs). From there, you can ask the chatbot questions about your data sources or generate document summaries. (Pricing: free)

Kippy AI is your personal AI language tutor

Kippy AI

How it works: Kippy AI can teach you 10+ languages via chatbot conversations that mimic real-life interactions. Instead of learning boring phrases that—realistically—you’ll never use, the tool lets you role-play various practical scenarios (like job interviews, dates, or shopping sprees). 

Getting your reps in: Kippy AI also helps you get better at speaking out loud. Simply record any word or phrase as a voice memo and Kippy AI will provide instant feedback evaluating your pronunciation, completeness, and fluency. (Pricing: freemium)

Zocket designs social media ads using generative AI

How it works: Choose your ad’s colors and describe its purpose (e.g. a “New Arrivals” ad for a fashion brand). Zocket helps you craft strong CTAs and taglines using AI. In around 30 seconds, the tool will generate several creative ad designs to try out. 

Other cool features: Zocket makes it easier for businesses to manage customer communications across multiple social media channels: It integrates Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp inquiries into one central chat interface. (Pricing: paid—offers free trial)

KardsAI turns any text into ready-to-use flashcards

How it works: KardsAI converts PDFs, ebooks, notes, and other texts into ready-to-use flashcards. Just copy-paste text or upload a PDF file and specify the level of detail you need for your flashcards. KardsAI also offers a vast library of pre-made decks (e.g. “Most Used Spanish Words”) for you to explore. 

Staying on track: KardsAI helps you stick to your learning goals by sending notifications with random flashcard questions throughout the day. (Pricing: freemium)
