ShapeCrafter 3D is a prototype of the world's most accurate, real-time 3D camera. It can capture 3D images in color with full HD resolution and 100µm accuracy at near video rates (12Hz). The camera is primarily targeted at industrial applications, such as 3D printing and 3D machine vision, in-line inspection in manufacturing and 3D part localization for robots.
Stereoscopic photographer Roman Klein (Austria) is publishing a free online 4K3D pictures repository. Pictures are Oculus Rift compatible and make use of every pixel of all leading edge 4K/UHD-3D TV sets. The web site features a Phereo stereoscopic viewer.
All available 3D pictures offer 3840x2160 pixels resolution or better with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The sample you see here is downsampled to 640 pixels and rendered in Red-Cyan for your cheap cardboard 3d glasses, but on the web site, Phereo will give you access to up to 2560x885 pixels. For the full 4K viewing, download pictures on your local computer and use you preferred 3D viewer.
