3D Graphics "Display"
« on: October 26, 2013, 09:25:24 AM »
i know that sales pitches are not allowed here
but - this isn't about that - they were looking for $400,000 to get started and already have much more

this IS about the future of display graphics.....
i have been a fan of Jeri Ellsworth for some time - since i saw her turn a C64 into a guitar   :P
check out the demo video....

P.S.: Jeri's CastAR looks really impressive :t

i have to wonder who will develop the ASM code, LIB, etc to utilize it   :biggrin:
both she and Rick Johnson write code, but i don't think it's ASM

Most people do not feel nausea or motion sickness when using castAR and projected augmented reality.

Interesting that such a major problem deserves only a mention in passing.
Well Microsoft, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten us into.

you're right, Michael
it's quite different than wearing "goggles" that project to nearby screens
i don't think i could wear something like that for very long
these - i think you could wear for a while

i'll be interested to see what John (sinsi) thinks - lol
he's a big gamer-type

Hi,

   Waaay back when, I bought 3D glasses (LCD's that synched
with the monitor) and 3D goggles (two little screens mounted
in a headset).  They worked.

   The headset had small speakers and a motion detector so it
could tell where you were looking, and move the images
accordingly.  one of the games it came with was a 3D version
of Heretic, which some of you might remember.  Main problem
was low resolution and I never saw another piece of software
for it.  They did last for a while, so there had to be more stuff
out there, but I never saw it.  (Except for a developer's guide.)
Minor (?) problem there was no adjustment for interocular spacing.
Worked nicely for short sessions.

   The glasses came with games as well.  I don't remember it
much.  Still have the box if it turns up.  Not likely after all this
time.

   I have very poor depth perception, so have always been
interested in 3D stuff.  And a sucker for buying gadgets,
books, and other things.

Cheers,

Steve N.

i would think that creates a "3D effect"
Jeri's toy looks like real 3D   :t

Steve - did you watch the video ?

   The site says "The frames of the glasses contain two micro-
projectors—one for each eye."  So separate images for each eye,
just like the old days.  It does look much better than what I had.
Much better technology and higher resolution.  But there was real
depth to the old stuff I had, not just a "3D effect".

Steve - did you watch the video ?

   About half of it I think.  Audio was okay,  video not so much.
Anything important in the second half?  I thought I got the
general idea.  Surprised it actually played, most sites just say
you have to update your Flash version.  Will try it on another
(newer) computer later, at a different location, but with a
somewhat slower connection.

Cheers,

Steve N.

the difference being that the image is projected onto a screen some distance away

it looks really great
but - i get a headache thinking about the code - lol

It's an interesting subject since the brain is actually a three dimensional storage unit and not made for flat two dimensional symbols. People who are exposed to these symbols (able to read and write) will develop severe brain damage over time. A study of twins where one of them was sent to school and the other stayed home at the farm (the norm in some parts of Europe 60 years ago) shows the physical changes to the brain made (in school) using a brain-scan for these people.

One of the interesting experiments done in this case was to expose one of the twins (the real one) to a 2D image. In the room there was a table with a bowl of fruit, banana, apple, and orange. They took the banana out and lay it on the table, and took a picture of it. When they show this picture to the old lady, now with the banana also in the bowl, she was not able to make a connection between the picture and the "real thing".

A more scary aspect of this is the study of a psychopath. A person void of empathy and human emotions who "reveal himself" and for this reason is locked up. Well, double that dose of insanity and you have a successful trader on Wall Street, so there is a direct connection to the lack "of empathy and human emotions" to success. This "success" is then connected to "the art of persuasion", "game theory", "finance", and "economic policy".

This have been known for a long time, but it was a general assumption that these people was drawn into these positions as a result of their "ability", assuming then that this was genetic. However, resent studies conclude that it is in fact the education system which produce this kind of "ability".

For those who have some knowledge of "game theory" and "basic human behaviour" will also be able to reduce, and thereby simplify this behaviour to a simple conclusion which could be applied to all living creatures that ever crawled on this earth. This conclusion is the fact that all living things only have one priority which trump all others: to repeat or copy success. Since the definition of success in this case is the same as the definition of a psychopath, and everybody wants to be "successful", well...

Assembly programming involve all the aspect of this "wicked knowledge", and if I'm not mistaken I think the first "game theory" was developed by a programmer: we are so screwed  :lol:

The root of this wickedness seems to be the simplification of the real world to this flat(screen) 2D fake reality we now live in. This new technology could then be a cure for our stupidity, by enable us to use our brain as it was meant to be used, instead of feeding it with all this "fake" stuff which only makes us selfish, needy and greedy.

Impressive project, this is the goal of my research for so long.

before long, they'll be looking for a way to "store" movie info to create the 3D effect   :icon_eek:

Make it priced below 80 USD. I'll changed my glass to it for my daily usage.

Oh it was a mini projector. I thought it was projected onto the glass of my eyeglasses. Im waiting an eyeglasses which utilize AR, or at least worked as a display. I'll reprogram the visualizations myself using OpenGL. Intel is going to release a x86 tablet, if only they can make the price 80USD just like ussual android tablets.
