Sébastien "VR Geek" Kuntz » 3d I have recently been sent a book about OpenSceneGraph, entitled “OpenSceneGraph 3.0 : Beginner’s guide” (You can download a sample chapter on the website). Disclaimer: The book has been sent to me for free by its editors, so judge by yourself if there is a conflict of interest! I’ve been working with OpenSceneGraph for four years between 2001 and 2005, building a VR engine and two VR simulators on top of it for the french railways and I would have loved to have a beginner’s guide back then.

Fotodiox Debuts a Full-Metal Replacement E-Mount; No More Wobbly Lenses on Your Sony Fotodiox has unveiled a new product that could instill much more confidence in Sony E-mount camera owners. It’s a full metal mounting ring called the “TOUGH E-Mount,” and it’s meant to replace the plastic/metal hybrid ring that comes standard on all E-mount cameras. While this may seem unnecessary, the component that holds your beloved glass onto the camera body is definitely not the part of your Sony you want failing. This is particularly relevant for Sony a7, a7R and a7S users who are slapping adapters and massive lenses onto their mirrorless full-frame cameras.

"3-Sweep" Software Can Extract 3D Objects Out of a Single Photo SIGGRAPH is often a play space for new imaging software, where academics get a chance to show off the weird and wonderful software they've been working on for years. As SIGGRAPH Asia 2013 this November, one group wants to demo a piece of software that can take a single image, and generate a 3D object out of something in it. Dubbed 3-Sweep, it relies on a user making three quick selections around the object in order to interpret the size and shape. From there, it can be rotated in three dimensions, edited, moved into other photos, and more. It allows real world objects to be resized and tweaked for digital use, and easily manipulated.

Photogrammetry Photogrammetry is an estimative scientific method that aims at recovering the exact positions and motion pathways of designated reference points located on any moving object, on its components and in the immediately adjacent environment. Photogrammetry employs high-speed imaging and the accurate methods of remote sensing in order to detect, measure and record complex 2-D and 3-D motion fields (see also SONAR, RADAR, LiDAR etc.). Photogrammetry feeds the measurements from remote sensing and the results of imagery analysis into computational models in an attempt to successively estimate, with increasing accuracy, the actual, 3-D relative motions within the researched field. Its applications include satellite tracking of the relative positioning alterations in all Earth environments (e.g. tectonic motions etc), the research on the swimming of fish, of bird or insect flight, other relative motion processes (International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing).

Meet "The Reason," A New Metal 3D Printed Gun Its creator, Eric Mutchler, alas informs me today the name of his new metal 3D printed handgun is not a deliberate shout-out to Reason, despite our early and often coverage of the world of 3D printed weapons in both plastic and metal. It was just named that "for the sake of it, it seemed a useful term" for such a gun since "who can argue with 'reason'?" Mutchler tells me that, despite erroneous reporting all around the tech field this morning from TechCrunch to Gizmodo, his weapon is not an official product of his employer, Solid Concepts. It was made by him and for him, merely as his personal example of how interestingly personalized 3D printing allows metal weapons to be. (Solid Concepts, now owned by a bigger, and publicly held, 3D printing interest Stratasys, is trying to avoid being too connected with the weapons field these days.)

PBR In Practice By Joe “EarthQuake” Wilson This tutorial will cover the basics of art content creation, some of the reasoning behind various PBR standards (without getting too technical), and squash some common misconceptions. Jeff Russell wrote an excellent tutorial on the Theory of Physically Based Rendering, which I highly recommend reading first. Additional help from Jeff Russell, Teddy Bergsman and Ryan Hawkins. Special thanks to Wojciech Klimas and Joeri Vromman for the extra insight and awesome art.

CGL @ ETHZ - High-Quality Single-Shot Capture of Facial Geometry High-Quality Single-Shot Capture of Facial Geometry T. Beeler, B. Bickel, P. Beardsley, R. Sumner, M. Brainstorm Technology LLC: PhotoSketch Plugin Brainstorm Technology LLC is the developer of PhotoSketch, a SketchUp plugin that enables the user to build 3D urban structures directly from photographs. Architects, designers, and entertainment content creators can now employ a new approach to create lightweight 3D models of existing buildings. These models, which typically consist of a few hundred phototextured polygons, are well-suited for use in online gaming and web-based applications such as Google Earth. The PhotoSketch plugin runs with the free or Pro versions of SketchUp 2015 for Windows and Mac OS. Overview PhotoSketch offers an intuitive three-step workflow: camera calibration, camera pose recovery, and photo-guided modeling, which enables the user to quickly build 3D models of existing urban structures from 2D photographs. Download Try PhotoSketch by downloading a free 30-day demo version.

Army Robotics Researchers Look Far into the Future ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. -- The U.S. Army envisions a future where robots are integral members of the team performing autonomous actions and maintaining current capabilities. Five years ago, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory set out to pursue this vision by forming the Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance. It sought partners in industry and academia to explore technologies required for the deployment of future intelligent military unmanned ground vehicle systems ranging in size from man-portables to ground combat vehicles. "The future for unmanned systems lies in the development of highly capable systems, which have a set of intelligence-based capabilities sufficient to enable the teaming of autonomous systems with Soldiers," said Dr.
