Cambridge University Engineering Department - Qi Pan ProFORMA: Probabilistic Feature-based On-line Rapid Model Acquisition Qi Pan, Gerhard Reitmayr and Tom Drummond Proc. BMVC'09, September 2009, London, UK The generation of 3D models is very useful for many computer vision applications. This paper introduces ProFORMA, a system designed to enable on-line reconstruction of textured 3D objects rotated by a user's hand. Partial models are created very rapidly and displayed to the user to aid view planning, as well as used by the system to robustly track the object pose. The system works by calculating the Delaunay tetrahedralisation of a point cloud obtained from on-line structure from motion estimation which is then carved using a recursive and probabilistic algorithm to rapidly obtain the surface mesh.

12 Design-Differentiated Floors Linked Together in Hotel Puerta América The Hotel Silken Puerta América in Madrid, Spain is an innovative project that involved numerous artists, architects and designers working together in developing something unseen before. Each level is differentiated from the next and its design is signed by world-renowned names. According to the official description, the building is a “space that invites people to dream – a neverbeen- attempted-before project that has brought together nineteen of the top architecture and design studios in the world from thirteen different countries. Originality, luxury, innovation and formal freedom define a hotel that awakens its guests’ senses. Each of the floors showcases a different concept in hotel rooms. Car park.

Punchcard: VideoTrace Matherix Labs Dynamic Surface Motion Capture (4D) Optics and Lasers in Engineering - Holovideo: Real-time 3D range video encoding and decoding on GPU 1. Introduction 2. Principle 3. 4. 5. Acknowledgments Appendix A. References Abstract We present a 3D video-encoding technique called Holovideo that is capable of encoding high-resolution 3D videos into standard 2D videos, and then decoding the 2D videos back into 3D rapidly without significant loss of quality.

I remember the video. I found it a few months ago . I'm pretty sure it's in my DYI Scanners pearltree here . Going to have to start organizing these so I can find stuff like this in here ;-) Still collecting the 3D scanner info . People are coming up all the time with new techniques . So I'm always interested in what ever is out there on the subject . by mirlen101 Oct 2
