Gravity Sketch takes 3D design as you know it and launches it straight into the future, allowing you to use features you probably only imagined before; in fact, you’ll probably feel like you’ve stepped out of a sci-fi movie with these moves. Designed for gesture and touch input, Gravity Sketch was introduced earlier this year and was entered into a major design competition. October 29.
