Max - re "I hope we're not talking about my trousers again -- I'm trying to lose weight!"


I lost a bunch of weight not long ago. I found it hiding around my middle.

@alex_m1: ...the occulus rift will be released somewhere along the last half of 2015.

On the one hand that seems like a long time away -- on the other hand I know that time passes by so quickly that the last half of 2015 will be here sooner than we think :-)

@max: The rumors have spoken. And they claim that the occulus rift will be released somewhere along the last half of 2015.

And maybe we will see some occulus version sooner. that's fit only for media consumption , and uses a samsung phone, and a case with lens.

@mhrackin: ...if you're trying to lose weight, my advice is to stay away from the "12-Pi steradians" .....

I fear the beer and bacon have something to do with it (sad face)

I love the film idea and possibilities, but given the amount of information to be processed in real-time (blending 36x video streams!!), I bet that the only feasible way of doing this for a low/medium volume product is by using a high-end FPGA.

I recall reading about the Google connection, but havn't heard of the company or product since. It's good to hear that it's still rolling. It was (and is) very cool technology.

@Duane: That would allow for less distortion on the seams.

I hope we're not talking about my trousers again -- I'm trying to lose weight!

I think the term you're looking for is "12 Pi steradians".

Yes, that Portland company was Dodeca.  Bought out by Immersive Media.  We did the real-time dsp hw and sw. The first StreetView city was Portland for that reason!  Parallex is the real problem to correct.  Certainly more cameras make this problem easier to solve but more videos to handle make it harder.  Not as big a problem further away and then the problem becomes more sensor and lens resolution.  Small lenses tend to be the limiting factor to image quality.
