A mobile 3D exhibition: i3DG Palm Top Theater

i3DG is a playful analog extension to an iPhone, converting its 2D display into a layered 3D view.

Watch this video. Brilliant idea. I love it!

Using the very old technique of placing a halfsilvered mirror at a 45-degree angle in front of an image, in a novel new context, the project serves as a timely critique of the popular memes of 3D displays and iPhones. As a gadget peripheral, i3DG can support a wide range of different applications, ranging from simple 3D videos and animations to accelerometer based games.

Future Photography from the Sci-Fi Airshow

Love this, but especially when the 3D models are in the ‘real world’ environments. The space shots on the site don’t really carry the effect as well. Click the images for a larger view.

Super Mario Bros. from Andreas Heikaus on Vimeo.

Another awesome thesis project.

Blurb: The Super Mario Bros. game, released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, is not longer bound to the television size and get interactive with a new environment. The emphasis of my thesis is on the matchmoving work. It is the process of matching CG elements into live-action footage.

Mathematics is the language of nature

This stunning short film is inspired by numbers, geometry and nature.

Sit back and enjoy the ride.
