Occipital Raises $1M (And Counting) On Kickstarter To Bring 3D Scanning To The Masses Boulder & SF-based startup Occipital is probably still best known for its Red Laser and 360Panorama apps, but it confirmed today that it raised over $1 million on Kickstarter to bring its Structure 3D sensor to market. The Structure isn’t just any 3D sensor though. It’s an incredibly small one — so small, in fact, that it can onto the back of your iPad (note: it’s compatible with any iOS device with a Lightning port) and connect without completely killing your battery life. While run-of-the-mill users can use the Structure and its early batch of companion apps to scan objects for printing at Shapeways or to fling balls for virtual kittens to chase around the 3D representation of a room, Occipital was really gunning to pick up developer support this time. It’s certainly a nice little show of financial validation for the team, especially considering this is their first big foray into consumer-facing hardware and the fact that they didn’t exactly need the cash in the first place.
Voltaic Systems Blog – Solar DIY and Device Charging We’ve been working with a company called Cam-Do on how to power a GoPro camera for extended timelapse photography projects where battery life is a limiting factor. Our setup is now being used out on Jamaica Bay to monitor horshoe crabs, more pictures to come. Here’s what’s in the Kit and its purpose: - Waterproof Enclosure (made by Cam-Do) keeps the GoPro and Voltaic battery Dry - Scheduler (made by Cam-Do) turns the GoPro on and off based on a programmable schedule - 3.4 Watt Solar Panel (made by Voltaic) charges the Voltaic battery - V15 USB Battery (made by Voltaic) stores power from the panel and charges the GoPro We’re pretty pleased with how it turns out, but give yourself a week or two to setup and test the system so that you’re happy with the way everything fits together.

Lytro takes a giant leap into video with the Immerge VR video cam Remember those nifty Lytro cameras that used light field technology to create cool, variable focus images? It turns out, the first-generation, kaleidoscope-shaped Lytro shooter and the more traditional looking camera-like Illum were just the beginning. On Thursday, Lytro announced it has jumped into the video arena with Immerge, a video camera that uses light field tech to capture and blend realistic, immersive live action video and computer graphics. Lytro “Immerge builds on the technical achievements that were unlocked by Illum and moves the technology further into live action video and a 360 virtual space,” Ariel Braunstein, chief product officer at Lytro, told Macworld.

DexType’s Virtual Keyboard Software Lets Leap Motion Owners Type In Mid Air The motion-sensing Leap Motion Controller, which lets users eschew the traditional keyboard plus mouse combo and interact with their computers via gestures, started shipping to pre-order consumers this week. Apps with Leap Motion support are, as you’d expect, relatively thin on the ground at this point. They include games like Cut The Rope, a Top News app from the New York Times and some creative tools and education apps, to name a few. Today another app joins the gesture party: DexType gives Leap Motion owners a keyboardless way to type — which could allow, for instance, a doctor to input medical information into a computer without having to wash hands before and after touching a physical keyboard, or a consumer to look up cake recipe details in the middle of baking. The virtual keyboard works by aligning all the letters into a single string displayed along the bottom of the screen — much like Minuum does with its mobile keyboard software.
Lytro's 'Immerge' 360 3D Light-field Pipeline is Poised to Redefine VR Video Lytro have today revealed plans which take the company’s expertise in ‘still’ light-field photography into the realm of VR film. The company have developed a scalable end-to-end solution for shooting, processing, editing and rendering next-generation 360 footage that allows a viewer to move around the captured scene in real time. Lytro‘s technology, it could be argued, has been waiting for the rest of the world to catch up for nigh on a decade. Best lenses for GH4 Hi, I'm getting ready to purchase a GH4. I will be using it primarily for directing and producing my own horror and comedy films, but I also need a nice stills lens to take photos of the vintage dirtbikes and parts that i sell online and for pics of my family and such. I am a learning about the different features of cameras and lenses, but I am buying a camera next week so I would like to get some quick advice from some more knowledgeable folk before I make a purchase. Based on what I will be using the camera for, can anyone tell me how I would achieve a 35 or super 35 equivalent with and without a metabones speedbooster? Should I get one?
