Realtime 3D in Action

I spent the last few days working on a human head in which to put two cameras. I started out with a female styrofoam head and cut it in half. Then, I hollowed out spaces for each camera just behind the eyes and punched through two holes. Next, I applied several layers of Liquitex to cover up the ugly styrofoam and, as a last step, sanded it with very fine grain sandpaper. I’ll position the head above an LCD monitor where you can see what the head sees in a real time anaglyph (red/blue) stream. Here are a few pics of the process.

    I generally don’t like blogs either (except mine). But thanks for making this one!

  5. Looking at this head, which clearly demonstrates our stereoscopic vision, I immediately had the association of the “sound-head” from the beginning of radio broadcasting in stereo.
