Wacom Showed Me the First Good Reason to Buy the Magic Leap Hype

Fields as diverse as video game development, visual effects, and industrial design all rely on 3D software, but the tools used to make it remain firmly stuck in two-dimensions. For the past few years, Magic Leap’s mixed reality goggles have been heralded as the missing link between the digital 3D world and the real…Read more...

4 Things You Might Not Know About Movie Theater Screens

4 things you may not know about movie theater screens Contrary to some belief, movie theaters are doing pretty well. Summer 2018 revenue is on track to become the fifth best so far.

What you might not know is that movie theater screens are not all alike; they come in many sizes, forms, and colors. Here are some fun facts about movie screens that you might not kn...

Red’s Follow-Up to its Wild Holographic Phone Is a Cinema-Grade 3D Camera

With its high price, outdated specs, lackluster holographic screen, and absent mod support, Red’s Hydrogen One may have been the biggest smartphone flop of 2018. However, on the last day of the year, Red teased that something could be coming in 2019 that could potentially redeem the over-hyped handset. Read more...

Zelda: Ocarina of Time at 20 – melancholy masterpiece changed games forever

It had everything: swordfights with lizards, magical tennis, shrieking mummies, a whole world to explore – plus a rousing score you could play along to. This joyful/scary chapter in Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda has inspired designers ever sinceThe Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s opening sequence is, for me, the most evocative of all video games. First you hear the galloping of a horse, joined by soft minor-key piano and melancholy, soaring ocarina notes as a young man in a green tunic rides und...

Video Tutorial: Create a 3D Anaglyph That Really Works!

In today’s Photoshop video tutorial we’re going to have some fun creating a retro 3D effect that really works. If you cast your mind back to the 3D movies, comics and posters from your childhood, you’ll remember those comedic glasses with red and blue lenses that bring the effect to life. Stereoscopy is the scientific term behind how these images work. By overlapping two images using the red and blue channels, it produces an anaglyph 3D image that jumps out from the screen when viewed with colou...

Facebook rolls out AI-based 3D images with simulated depth

After announcing 3D photos and VR memories back in May, Facebook is now rolling out the feature that can turn your 2D photos into 3D. The new feature will work both in the News Feed and VR. The technology captures the distance between the subject and the background, so it brings scenes of 2D photos […] The post Facebook rolls out AI-based 3D images with simulated depth appeared first on DIY Photography.

Venom: what is a one-star film like in 4D?

Luckily it hasn’t got a complicated plot – or much sex. Hold the popcorn tight and prepare to get wetBefore Venom in 4D starts we are told that it is not a wise idea to leave the cinema mid-screening as we could be injured by a flying chair or confused and disoriented by smoke, mist and water that pours over patrons as they’re watching the film.At a Friday morning screening, I sit next to a colleague from the Australian who has a broken collarbone. He looks slightly worried. We are warned that t...

How To Create a Stack of 3D Characters in Adobe Photoshop

One of my Spoon Graphics readers recently sent me an email with a great tutorial suggestion based on one of the promo graphics of the free font named Manrope. The cited artwork featured a collection of letters as long three dimensional shapes of varying heights, densely packed together in the scene. Clearly some kind of 3D modelling software was used to produce the original concept, but I experimented with Photoshop’s built-in 3D tools to see if a similar effect could be made. Follow along with ...

Mics that record in “3D” ambisonics are the next big thing

Call it the virtual reality microphone … or just think of it as an evolution of microphones that capture sounds more as you hear them. But mics purporting to give you 3D recording are arriving in waves – and they could change both immersive sound and how we record music. Let’s back up from the hype a little bit here. Once we’re talking virtual reality or you’re imagining people in goggles, Lawnmower Man style, we’re skipping ahead to the application of these mic solutions, beyond the mics them...

The Looking Glass makes sci-fi movie-style holograms a reality

The disclaimer at the very beginning of the video should be indication enough that the things you are about to see will blow your minds away. After decades of watching 3D holographic projections in movies like the Star Wars franchise, a Kickstarter project is bringing the promise of three-dimensional virtual imagery to life. No VR/AR headsets, no 3D glasses, no gimmicks, the Looking Glass display can actually showcase visual content in 3D, to the naked eye. Not only does the content being disp...

What if we grew our fruits to be shaped as containers?

I remember one snarky image that made its rounds around the internet. It featured peeled oranges stored in plastic containers, with a caption that read “If only nature could find a way to cover these oranges so we didn’t need to waste so much plastic on them”. It seemed like a glorious act of stupidity, that someone at the supermarket would peel fruits, discarding their natural packaging, and then store them in man-made plastic boxes… so Brooklyn-based design studio Crème did the exact opposite....

The Holographic Display Of The Future Is Here

The holographic display of the future is here and you can have one on your desk for under $600. Ever since I saw Princess Leia appealing to Obi Wan that he was her only hope when I was 11, I’ve wanted a holographic display. Movies like Minority Report and Back to the Future II (do you remember the shark hologram that ate Marty?) have consumed thousands of people’s lives over the past few decades. But until now, no one has been able to make a scalable device that would let groups of people, u...

How Facebook’s new 3D photos work

In May, Facebook teased a new feature called 3D photos, and it’s just what it sounds like. But beyond a short video and the name, little was said about it. But the company’s computational photography team has just published the research behind how the feature feature works and, having tried it myself, I can attest that the results are really quite compelling. In case you missed the teaser, 3D photos will live in your news feed just like any other photos, except when you scroll by them, touch ...

Kandao’s QooCam will be whatever camera you want it to be

With three fisheye lenses, a swiveling 45° joint, and a lens cover that turns into a stand, the Kandao QooCam can be a regular action camera, a 360° camera, a 3D Stereoscopic camera, and even a webcam.It seems like camera tech has surpassed all possible goals and the QooCam’s definitely testament to it.

Price Check on Aisle 3: Retailers Turn to Robots to Manage Inventory

Inventory management is crucial to operating a successful retail operation. And as hard as it may be to believe, retailers “don’t really know what’s on the shelves,” says Sarjoun Skaff, founder and CTO of Bossa Nova Robotics. A combination of the sheer number of products a retailer like Walmart has on offer and the pace of 24/7 shopping makes it very difficult to maintain real-time inventories. “If it isn’t on the shelf, the shopper can’t buy it,” Skaff adds. Bossa Nova, along with San Fr...

James Cameron is Still Dedicated to Making 3D Movies for the Foreseeable Future

3D may be rapidly losing popularity and theaters, but James Cameron is still convinced that this technology is the future of cinema. The director helped revive 3D technology with his groundbreaking, lavish 2009 sci-fi film Avatar, but unfortunately, few films has lived up to the potential of 3D since then. Which is why Cameron is flying the flag for 3D with all four of his Avatar sequels — and possibly with all of his films for the foreseeable future. The Avatar director spoke at a Vivid eve...

Unreal game engine’s modular sound features explained: video

Unreal Engine may be built for games, but under the hood, it’s got a powerful audio, music, and modular synthesis engine. Its lead audio programmer explained this afternoon in a livestream from HQ. Now a little history: back when I first met Aaron McLeran, he was at EA and working with Brian Eno and company on Spore. Generative music in games and dreams of real interactive audio engines to drive it have some history. As it happens, those conversations indirectly led us to create libpd. But tha...
