Great way to engage conference attendees. Capture their pose with Microsoft Kinect. Then fabricate model with a 3D printer.
This is a smart.
Trimensional uses both the screen and the front-facing camera on your iOS device, detecting patterns of light reflected off your face to build a true 3D model. More at: http://www.trimensional.com/
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.

New work for Toyota.
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.
This stunning short film is inspired by numbers, geometry and nature.
Sit back and enjoy the ride.

“Look at the shiny shiny cube….”
The smart people at the University of British Columbia have created a “personal cubic head-coupled 3D display that shows reactive 3D scenes”.
Basically it’s a box that adjusts to movements, and lets you interact with objects inside a virtual 3D world.
pCubee is made with five flat-panel screens that uses perspective-corrected rendering and real-time physics simulation to create compelling visualization and interaction techniques for 3D content.
Very clever. Very cool.
Real or CG. Gran Turismo 5 is blurring the lines even more.
Took a couple of viewings for my eyes to tell the difference on one of the shots.
Technically impressive. Can’t wait to see what the game play is like.
