The opportunity for 3D is much larger than 3D movies and pictures

With our interest in 3D photography and video, we can get stuck on thinking 3D is just about photography or movies. But the future of 3D is vastly larger. As 3D monitors and 3D TVs become wide spread – which is likely a few years out yet – consider the impact this could have on line shopping. And especially when glasses-free displays are common on computers, tablets, phones and HDTVs and...

The Hobbit in High Frame Rate 3D

Last weekend, we all watched The Hobbit at a 2D movie theater (part of a family get together). The movie was great – but this post is not about the story – but about the technology. The 2D movie theater used a 2K projection system and the image appeared remarkably soft to us. From our seats, it felt like watching a standard DVD projected on to an HDTV screen and we...

Glass Artist at Work – 3D video

Below is a 3D video I took last weekend inside The Hot Shop at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA. You can watch glass artists at work on the Museum’s live video stream (which is narrated) and you can send questions to the narrator, online. Glass blowing is an absolutely fascinating art form and takes a team of people to produce these spectacular pieces.

Hyper3DPhone – Android App – links two phones together for stereoscopic 3D photos

Hyper3DPhone – Android Apps on Google Play. Designed for taking hyperstereoscopic 3D images using two Android phones. Run the app on both phones (its free). Identify one phone as the left and the other as the right phone and then move the phones apart. The app communicates over Bluetooth to synchronize taking photos on both phones at the same time, giving you the left image on the left phone and the...

Enjoy watching online 3D video? Check out http://3dstreaming.it

The operator of 3dstreaming.it contacted me several months ago, suggesting I start posting links to my 3D videos on his web site.  Unfortunately, I was really busy on other projects and did not follow up. Until now. If you enjoy watching 3D videos, 3dstreaming.it is a repository of links to 3D videos located at other video streaming sites Рand the content I looked at tonight is quite good. I am...
