Stereo versus focus stacking

Stereo imaging has been around since the viewmaster. I presume we're not talking about that. Our Nikon metrology tool uses focus stacking to provide quantitative depth spacial information. That's not very fast so I'm assuming that's out. I guess if the gyro sensors are good enough, it' basically tomography... I'm guessing that perhaps our computing arsenal availabe in phones is good enough these days for this...

Looking forward to see if it's useful.

An aid for visually challenged?

A smart ohone with 3D imaging can be a useful aid to visually challenged . They can get the exact idea ofd the 3D world, especially those who have lost one of their eyes and hence may have difficulty in constructing 3D images in their brain, I suppose.

I'm not sure I want to walk that path. I have enough ads right here on my laptop and my smartphone.

@wilber, you're right about the slow acceptance of 3D products. It took a long time for 3D movies to get mainstream but now they are the norm for action and animation.

Now everyone has a standard camera and video recorder in their smartphones, it will take a while for 3D video capture to be standard and people to get use to it.

Re: Google is Making a 3D Imaging Tablet

Google is right on target on next gen product features in the tablet market. Movidius may end up being Google's own just like Oculus was acquired by Fbook.

Apps are the key to the success of 3D-vision capable tablet. For example, if users can image and successfully reproduce a graphical / CAD model of the object, then we will have democratized product development without having to use more expensive 3D scanners.

3D product success history has not been upto the mark though the product themselves are innovative, so it will be upto the ease of accepting the interface.

One useful part of this project is the modivius processor, which supposedly can compute 1tflops/sec under a watt. I wonder what other projects are using it , and whether it's availble on the market.
