The 3 Sweep software lets you outline the 3D geometry of the object in a few simple clicks and then you can simply extract, move, rotate and copy that 3D model. And all of this working from one single photo. Of course, the software relies on us being able to see a 3D model in a picture and then outline it with the tool, but it is a CRAZY thing to have as a tool.
SIGGRAPH is a great place to see tech that will blow your mind.
Red Bull seems to get more and more attention lately. For now, if you click on the above image you will see the 360 degree interactive video they’ve created in which a test race for Formula 1 takes place. You can rotate the camera all around and see the action while the car is moving.
Say what you want, but interactive videos are the future and this had to be listed on my blog. Next up: video games where you can record a video of you and your missions and where you can rotate the camera while it’s on playback.
Vsauce 2 has a ton o great stuff and they recently launched Vsauce 3, for video games. Check it out.
In the video from above you will see a few tech innovations, but I likes mostly Digit, the 3-D Gesture-Sensing System. It helps you communicate with the computer and play video games using only few gestures. Neat, huh?
