Build a 3-D Theater From Wired How-To Wiki By now, you've probably seen Björk's stunning 3-D video for "Wanderlust" ...in 2-D. If you want to view the Icelandic singer's psilocybin-friendly vision as she intended, you'll want to watch it in stereoscopic 3-D, the same depth-enhancing technique — based on linear polarization — that's used in 3-D IMAX theaters. And who better to show you how than the directorial duo behind the video, Sean Hellfritsch and Isaiah Saxon of Encyclopedia Pictura. They DIY'd their own 3-D viewing system, dubbed the Vizard. "We shot 'Wanderlust' with the small screen in mind," says Hellfritsch, who designed the contraption. Hey!

MoI, 3D Modeling for Designers and Artists Cambridge University Engineering Department - Qi Pan Interactive Model Reconstruction with User Guidance [Home] [2009 ISMAR (2.4MB)] [Longer Version (5.6MB)] [Poster (1.9MB)] Generating 3D models of real world objects is a common task during development of any augmented reality application. This paper describes how ProFORMA (Probabilistic Feature-based On-line Rapid Model Acquisition), a rapid reconstruction system, has been designed to simplify and speed up this task. ProFORMA uses a fixed video camera to allow on-line reconstruction of objects held in a user's hand. Partial models are generated very quickly and displayed instantly, allowing the user to plan how to manipulate the object's pose in order to generate additional views for reconstruction. We demonstrate how augmented reality can be used to assist the user in view planning, guiding the user to collect new keyframes from desirable views in order to complete and refine the model. Figure 1: The viewing sphere of the object is discretised into an icosahedron. Contact Information
