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.

3D product history

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.

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.

@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.

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

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.

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.

Actually, at least 100 years before the View-Master: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereoscopy

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
