A New "Wiggle" 3D App for iPhone
Joe Golling (USA) has always been interested in 3D photography, but when he discovered "wiggle" images two years ago and became obsessed with those little .gif animations, he started taking hundredth of these. Of course, he discovered quickly that e image processing part was extremely time consuming so he decided to solve the problem with what he called "the Bowtie".
You will find the Bowtie campaign on Kickstarter with the goal to industrialize the Bowtie manufacturing.
The Bowtie is made for fun. It is a quick and easy way to make and share multi-image 3D photography on iPhones. Watch the demo video here under and convince yourself...
1885 Graham Bell Record Resurrected by 3D Camera
"Hear my voice... Alexander Graham Bell." said the inventor of the telephone more than a century in front of his cardboard and wax disc voice recorder on 15 April 1885 in Washington DC, USA. More than one century later, the badly damaged disc is unable to withstand a reading needle to play it back. But today's technology includes high-resolution 3D cameras able to recreate a full 3-dimensional model of the original disc, and simulation software able to put the virtual disc on a virtual turntable.
A close look at an experimental recording disc shows how it has become cracked over the course of 128 years.
The inscription in wax reads "Record made April 15, 1885, by AGB and CAB."
3D Cameras in Softkinetics-Intel Deal
SoftKinetic (Brussels, Belgium) has teamed up with Intel to enable “perceptual computing,” or using more senses than usual to interact with computers. To that end, it is providing a 3D gesture-recognition camera for Intel to integrate into its collection of perceptual computing technologies by the end of next year.
Hollywood Adopts "Three-view Stereoscopy"
At a press conference in Hollywood (CA,USA) on April 1st, 2013, all major studios announced their commitment to "3D of the future", a new way to shoot and project stereoscopic movie giving a better than ever depth feeling to the audience. Dubbed "Three-view Stereoscopy" and based on the well-know "triple-flash" method already in use, the new technology adds a center view to the usual left and right images commonly used for 3D movies display.
Manufacturers are already embrassing "three-view Stereoscopy" as seen in the picture below. Watch a 3-views stereoscopic movie sample and a press conference picture here under.
