3D Cameras

The system use 3D cameras to detect and record gestures

Quality control is a vital part of modern manufacturing. Not only does it decrease the chances of a dissatisfied customer, but it reduces waste and, therefore, cost. However, inspecting products on the assembly line can itself be expensive, time consuming, and not as accurate as it should be. To speed things up a bit, BMW has developed a new system for inspecting bumpers that uses gestures to allow inspectors to literally point out defects.  Read More

Harvard researchers have found a way to create 3D images by juxtaposing two images taken f...

A team at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has come up with a promising new way to create 3D images from a stationary camera or microscope with a single lens. Rather than expensive hardware, the technique uses a mathematical model to generate images with depth and could find use in a wide range of applications, from creating more compelling microscopy imaging to a more immersive experience in movie theaters.  Read More

With a design modeled after an old Viewmaster, the Poppy uses an iPhone's own camera to ca...

There are several methods for creating 3D images with an iPhone, and most of those involve just altering an existing image using an app. With the Poppy, you'll be able to shoot your own 3D images and video instantly with just your iPhone. According to the developers, the stereoscopic images produced with a Poppy and an iPhone's HD camera lend a true sense of immersion to your typical snapshots.  Read More

Kinect Fusion allows details 3D models to be generated using the Kinect for Windows sensor

It wasn’t that long ago that constructing 3D models was a painstaking and time-consuming task. These days, devices such as the Lynx A camera are turning it into a point and shoot affair. Microsoft is also doing its bit to make life easier for graphic artists, 3D printing aficionados, industrial designers, animators, architects, and games developers by turning its Kinect for Windows sensor to the task of generating 3D models of objects and environments.  Read More

The Lynx A 3D modeling camera in Scene Modeling mode

It may look like a rather beefy tablet, but the Lynx A is actually a device that could make life easier for graphic artists, animators, architects, 3D printing enthusiasts, and potentially quite a few other people. Putting it simply, it’s a point-and-shoot camera that creates digital 3D models of whatever it’s pointed at.  Read More

Sony's new HDR-TD30V camcorder on the CES 2013 show floor

Sony unveiled its latest 3D camcorder at CES 2013. Known as the HDR-TD30V, it features full 1080p 60/24fps HD in both of its lenses – by contrast, most other 3D camcorders split a single 1080p signal into two lower-resolution channels.  Read More

Sony's new prototype 3D digital recording binoculars (right) appear to be almost a third s...

It's been over a year since Sony released its DEV-3 and DEV-5 digital recording binoculars, and while they've been a welcome device for nature lovers and sightseers, they're still quite bulky to carry around. At CES this year though, Sony revealed a prototype for its next pair of 3D digital recording binoculars that will provide more features in a smaller form factor.  Read More

NCTech's iSTAR is designed to deliver high resolution 360-degree image capture

Scottish company NCTech has created an all in one 50 megapixel camera that's designed to make 360 panoramic photography quick and easy to achieve. A flexible system in terms of use, the iSTAR combines ingenuity with an ability to generate high quality and information rich results.  Read More
