It’s not the first 3D scanner we’ve seen, but this one clips to your iPad and can scan people and rooms. The Structure Sensor has already blown through its crowdfunding goal, so move quick if you still want one of the early units.
An impressive tech demo of 3-Sweep, which can quickly generate 3D models from just a single photographic image. Sure, it’s not perfect – it can’t see hidden surfaces, and has trouble with fuzzy edges, but it’s still freaking impressive.
The guys behind Crysis show off some of the incredible new visual effects their game engine can crank out, along with some of the technical bits that developers will enjoy watching too. The procedural weather system is truly awesome.
While we’ve had it up to here with movies being released in 3D for no good reason, we’re thinking that Metallica’s epic new concert film – which entwines a story about a roadie on a mission – will be well worth a watch in IMAX 3D.
While we still ponder how we managed to draw a cube that one time in art class sophomore year, Chris Carlson impresses with this 3D chalk art time lapse of Donkey Kong versus Escher; bonus stop-motion scene included.
Since most of us don’t have graphics cards that can keep up with 3DMark’s coolest tech demos, here’s a full 1080p look at their Fire Strike demo, which will put all but the best systems through the ringer.
AIST and Keio University have invented a device that projects true three-dimensional images in mid-air or underwater. Two things: the flicker isn’t bad in person, and holy crap, that kid is an engineer?!
The planning that went into this projection mapping really makes it shine. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into a site-specific theater piece from the creative professionals at URBANSCREEN.
