Tag Archive: 3-D


On our recent visit to Future Scope and Lucent Pictures we were introduced to many 3-D translated movies, which are old movies that were re-mastered to use stereoscopic 3-D. I was skeptical about 3-D technologies and 3-D televisions but after the demo from Lucent Pictures I’m excited about the new wave of 3-D technologies. It’s surprisingly clearer with the newer technologies which shouldn’t shock anyone but I just never expected that the technology would have jumped as far as it did. What’s great about upcoming 3-D tech is the fact that it focuses more on depth rather than the dumb pop-out tricks of the past. This new focus is great for immersion into the movies or television shows because it feels more like watching the events through a window rather than a flat screen. With its new clarity, focus on depth, and old school 3-D pop-out tricks I can easily say that I’m excited instead of annoyed by the upcoming 3-D revolution.

We went to DNP (Dai Nippon Printing) on May 13th where we were witness to some of the most advanced holographic, 3-D, and touch sensing technologies in the world. The exhibition that caught my eyes more than any of the others was a machine currently in use in Louvre according to our guides. It was a table capable of sensing objects placed on it and using them to build a 3-D display on a monitor that can be viewed from all angles, it was pretty cool. The more I think about the exhibit the more I get excited about other possible uses for it. One example is with current generation video games. Customization is presently popular in mainstream video games today and I believe the scan table (as I shall call it) could be beneficial to the current trend. Artistic players could customize their characters outside of the game using the method of their choice and use color objects for artistic touches.
